Of the 4 teams to make the playoffs that year the Twins had the worst record.
Did you consider them to be the best team in baseball that year?
They deserved to be World Champions because they won their division and beat the other teams that won their division. The best team won't win the WS every year, no matter what playoff system you use, but you need to use one that only lets in deserving teams.
