    It's a good thing our pitching has picked up recently because we no longer have anyone in the top 50

    Gibson has an ERA of 3.50, and is in the top 20 in AL in ERA! When is the last time the Twins had a starter towards the top of the league in ERA?

    Also, Hughes is in top 40 in AL in ERA, so 2 starters in Top 40 in AL in ERA!

    I believe it is 51. Number 50 is Nolasco and #51 is Correia.

    Dozier's .814 OPS leads all MLB hitters batting .250 or less. No one else is over .800.

    He's already a valuable offensive player, but once that .250 BAPIP moves up a bit he could be really special.

    Two players have a higher ISO (isolated power) than that:
    Troy Tulowitzki - 0.379

    Santana no longer an MLB SS virgin.

    Note that this is more a case of topology than statistics.
