MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Twins have been here before.
The two-time defending AL Central champions are preparing for their second season at Target Field. In the last decade, they have six division titles, MVP awards for Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer, the new ballpark and an expanding payroll.
They are also 2-12 against the Yankees in the postseason since 2003, including three straight sweeps. This season, the Twins hope to have everyone back for a deep playoff run, including closer Joe Nathan.
