The Twins are doing some things at an unsustainable level. The bullpen couldn't pick up for the starter pitchers over the course of a season as it's done recently. But there's only 5½ weeks (and a roster expansion on Sept. 1) left to ride. So is there another low-cost veteran reliever, like Neal Cotts, that can be picked up for the final weeks? Can Jose Berrios (4-2, 2.78 ERA in 10 starts at Rochester) make a final-month contribution? Will Joe Mauer close out the season hitting like Joe Mauer 1.0? How will Paul Molitor manage as the games get bigger? Does Kevin Jepsen keep closing games as long as he's sharp? How will an outfield of Eddie Rosario, Byron Buxton and Aaron Hicks perform in pressure situations when Hicks is healthy?
The current takeaways: Don't think about 2016 right now because 2015 has become fun again. Don't think about the almost-certain playoff opponent if the Twins get into a wild card game. You know, the Yankees or Blue Jays, on their turf.
Be like a player: Don't overthink things.
