2009 Twins On Pace to Become One of Franchise's Most Powerful

The boys go boom.

With Joe Mauer and Jason Kubel each launching another long ball Friday afternoon, the Twins have now belted 68 home runs in 63 games.  This puts them on a pace for 175 home runs, which is a number they could surpass if everyone stays healthy, but even that pace would give them seventh place in franchise history for home runs.

For your browsing pleasure, here are the top five bombers for each of the six teams in front of our projected '09 crew, as well as how our leaders project out after this afternoon's win over the Cubbies.
