The Minnesota Twins had a great season but struggled in the playoffs against the Oakland A's.
However, the players have received a lot of recognition.
Today Justin Morneau of the Twins won the AL MVP award beating out the hated New York Yankees player Derek Jeter!

The Twins also have the AL batting title winner in Joe Mauer and the AL Cy Young award winner in Johan Santana.
Looks like the Twins are going to be contenders for a long time... Go Twins!
The AP said, "Morneau became the second Canadian-born player to win an MVP following Colorado's Larry Walker in 1997. He is the third Canadian-born athlete to win an MVP in a major pro league this year, following Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash and San Jose Sharks center Joe Thornton."
