Giants and Twins positioning for playoffs
By Zev Miro

San Francisco Giants at plate7/20/15 -- The defending World Champion San Francisco Giants are 5 games behind the division leading Los Angeles Dodgers, but they are starting to make a push in the NL West.  At 47-43 a game after the All-Star break the Giants have won 5 straight.  If the playoffs started today they would have a Wildcard playoff against the New York Mets who both have a .552 winning percentage.

The Giants have made a living staying close in the wildcard race and just getting into the playoffs.  Once they get in they show a proclivity to do damage, which led them to capturing three Championship titles in the past 5 years.  San Francisco always seems to be in the race even when they start the season sub 500.

The Minnesota Twins are climbing in the AL Central with a 50-40 record four games behind the conference leading Kansas City Royals.  The Twins 4 straight wins have given them a .556 winning percentage.

Last night a lead-off homer by Brian Dozier and a grand-slam by Trevor Plouffe gave the Twins a 5-0 win over the Oakland A’s and All-Star pitcher Sonny Gray.

Mark CubanKnow yourself to create your life path

We are all united on planet earth as separate individuals who are part of families, groups and communities. Yet we all have a distinct identity that is related to our family traditions and the culture and environments we've lived in. As individuals we are formed by nature and nurture.
