Twins have allowed 69 runs in the first 4 innings this year.

4 teams have allowed fewer than that in ALL of their innings.

Yes, we know the bullpen is pretty suspect, and the offense has been very hot & cold so far, but if the starting pitching doesn't get better, we also know we are in for another 90+ loss season. Sad part is we just have to hope it gets better as it's not like we have a lot of choices we can run out their in place of the guys currently struggling. Don't worry though, "Starting Pitching is a strength of the Team" according the GM prior to the season.

Lawrence George "Moose" Stubing had the same number of wins in his 8-game career managing the Angels as he had hits in his 5-game career playing for the Angels.

Ha, glad I read this before I wasted my time proving the initial statement utterly absurd. I figured it was a new thread too.


The Twins have only drafted 4 starting pitchers who have made an All-Star game with the team, and none since Brad Radke was drafted in 1991.

In June of 1977, Rod Carew had triples in three consecutive games. No biggie? Four triples in five games? Six in nine games? How about eight triples in fourteen games?

More fun... Sir Rodney started that month at .365 and hit .486 throughout which brought his month-ending average to .411. He had three four-hit games, seven (more) three-hit games, five two-hit games for a total of fifteen multi-hit games in June. He went 0-4 against the Red Sox on June 4th and 0-3 against the Royals on the eighteenth. His triple slash was .486/.538/.775 for an OPS of 1.313.

Fun times.

The Twins have played the majority of the season like complete dog **** and yet still find themselves only 8.5 games out of first place, leading up until the all star break we have 3 vs CHI, 4 vs KC, 4 @ DET, 3 @ Tex.

If the Twins can win 9 or 10 of those 14 games (very doable) there is a decent chance they can go into the all-star break only down 5 games or so.

In Trevor Plouffe's first 60 AB's of this season, he had 1 HR. In his next 61 AB's he had 7. In his last 54, he has 7 HR's. By comparison, Jose Bautista's splits at those points in 2010: First 58 = 3, Next 61 = 3, Next 61 = 10.

Trevor Plouffe's first 175 AB's = 15 HR's
Jose Bautista's First 180 AB's = 16 HR's

It seems your troubles are so far away but I'm sorry. Scott Weiland was the writer of those words. He just said them a little creepier and he omitted the word "not.

It was John Lennon who said "He got joo joo eyeball".

Here is a fangraphs look at the WAR from the top 3 members of each rotation in the majors. It was from an Angels article showing that their dynamite rotation of Weaver, Wilson and Haren is only OK but it also shows the Twins and their ineptitude. Sadly the number goes down when expanded to 5 starters. Diamond, Liriano and Pavano are the only starters with a positive WAR.

Already had! Although you fall well below Bremer's blame level since he did it more and had a wider audience. Ended the 8th heading to commercial talking about them being 3 outs from a shutout and then started the 9th going on and on about never seeing the Rangers shut out at The Ballpark.

And no, I don't believe in jinxes...but it's fun to blame people! Haha.

Delmon Young has 9 walks on the season, the lowest amount for all qualified players.

He has 359 plate appearances. That one walk every 39.8 plate appearances. One walk every 10.8 games. One walk every 98.2 innings.
