Friday Links-N-Thinks

The Twins keep finding ways to surprise as the team still sits around the .500 mark and it is close to a month and a half into the season. Minnesota's bats finally woke up in Boston with some big numbers put up in the four game series by Oswaldo Arcia and Joe Mauer. The club took three out of the four games to close out their recent road trip.

This weekend the Baltimore Orioles are coming to Target Field for a three game set. Baltimore is off to another good start after last year's trip back to the postseason. The Orioles are near the top of the AL East and they have a very good 12-8 record on the road entering Friday's game at Target Field.

Hopefully, the Twins recent offensive explosion will carry over to their home ballpark. The club is sitting in fourth place in the AL Central but there are a lot of team's grouped together in the middle of the division. If the team could get hot, they might find themselves on the heels of the Detroit Tigers.

For now, enjoy some of the best Twins and MLB coverage from around the web. There are some good interviews, Puckett stories, sports video games, and a whole lot more!
