The Minnesota Twins, my hometown and therefore favorite baseball team, may not have won the World Series since 1991, but they have had the best advertising in the Major Leagues for a number of seasons now thanks to Periscope. The agency absolutely understands what gets local fans fired up for baseball and is conveniently located directly behind the Metrodome on Washington Street in downtown Minneapolis…which is more cool than anything else.
I know that to Yankees fans like Adfreak, it is hard to respect an organization that has not had the economic might to buy its way to however many championships they have. But they do the baseball thing well – four playoff appearances in the last six years – they do the advertising thing well and, to top it off, they have and celebrate local players. Like pitcher Pat Neshek:

Neither are super-uber-awesome captain America amazing True Yankee – GO YANKESS WOO! 26 CHAMPIONSHIPS HOW MANY HAVE YOU GOT?! – Jeter, but we make do with what we can out in the prairie…even without Johan Santana.
