    That's a fair point. For consistency I was looking less at 8 of 12 years above average, and more at the well above average one year to below average the next like 09-10.

    What this data shows me, is that none of it is relevant to a winning team. The numbers are all over the board and shows no correlation with successful Twins teams vs. unsuccessful Twins teams. I get that the point of your blog is to highlight "Twins Way" stats, which I believe you did a good job doing. I'm a "Twins Way" hater though, I despise putting value and making big decisions on things are not pertinent to winning games. I think the "Twins Way" is something they just talk about now, which doesn't make me feel much better about it.

    I believe this above comment is unjustified as TR has gone to drafting pitchers with stuff. You still need some 4-5 rotation types for a while, but most of the Twins higher pitching prospects have swing and miss stuff. Now we hope they will work out, or TR may have to find another Johan is a trade.

    The Twins way leaves something to be desired. Namely, A World Series Title. Either you're first or you're last. They should be focused on building a starting rotation that can give them a chance to win a world series should they reach the playoffs. Instead they build a team good enough to make the playoffs but they will never win once in the playoffs because you cannot pitch to contact against elite hitting teams! So in terms of playoffs success the Gardy/ traitor Terry/Twins Way is the worst. When it comes to beating crappy teams on the regular and MAKING the playoffs, it's pretty good.
