The Minnesota Twins have wrapped up the first-half of the season in second place. And before I even ask, as a fellow lifetime Minnesota sports fan I'm pretty sure I know the answer -- but here we go: When it comes to the second half of the season, is your ($12) Twins Beer cup half-full or half-empty?

I mean they had the worst record in MLB last season -- and now they're hanging tough. If they could have won a few more games at home in the first half, they'd be semi-comfortably on top of the admittedly soft AL Central.

The 88th MLB All-Star game is set for Tuesday night in Miami (FOX), with three Twins on the roster: pitchers Ervin Santana and Brandon Kintzler, along with third baseman Miguel Sano -- who will also be participating in Monday night's Home Run Derby on ESPN.
