The Minnesota Twins have stayed atop their division throughout the regular season thus far, and currently hold a 3.5 game edge over Cleveland.

MLB.com released their list of World Series favorites via Twitter, and the Twins have made the cut.

Here is the graphic tweeted out that has the Minnesota Twins at #10:

Of course it's no surprise that the Yankees have come in at #1 on the list. New York is currently 66-31 with a staggering 12.5 game lead over Toronto in their division.

The Dodgers are the current kings in the NL, with a league best 64-31 mark, a full 5 games ahead of the Mets (59-37).

There is still a lot of season left, but it's safe to say Twins fans have to be pleased with the team's record and performance thus far.

The Guardians and the White Sox continue to creep closer to the top of the division, but let's hope the Twins continue to hold their grasp on first place in the AL Central, and challenge for a deep postseason run this Fall.

Ten Most Disappointing Minnesota Sports Seasons

The 2021 Minnesota Twins entered the season with high expectations, but unfortunately, they've made the list of most disappointing Minnesota teams of all time.

Disappointment is a common feeling for Minnesota sports fans as the years continue. Following the NBA Championship win for Milwaukee, SportsCenter was quick to point out that Minnesota has the current longest streak of seasons without a championship appearance in the four major sports (MLB/NBA/NFL/NHL). The Minnesota Lynx also chimed in on the stat after claiming four championships since 2011.

The ten teams that are on this list all follow a similar pattern. The year prior was either a great season with a playoff run or one that featured a strong core of players that appeared to have taken the next step. Offseason/preseason expectations were high with even Las Vegas oddsmakers believing in a deep run. Unfortunately, those preseason expectations fell short for the following teams. None of the teams listed below made the playoffs.
