The Minnesota Twins tonight start a homestand against two AL East opponents, the New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles. Here, it is a key series because if they take the series against both opponents, they can take the AL Central lead, and that depends on if the White Sox lose a few games. Their upcoming opponents are the Rays and Royals.

If the Twins win at least four out of seven, that should be good, provided the White Sox lose at least three of their next six games. Kansas City probably may lose two of three, meaning that'd keep the Twins at second place for a while. I bet knowing how it'll be, the White Sox retain their "position" as leaders the next six-seven games.
