    I second this sentiment. A record of 0-0 means your winning percentage is calculated by dividing by zero, which is "undefined".

    Mostly semantics, but it's probably better to count when their record is .500 or better AFTER every game. That gets rid of the 0-0 problem, and also includes their final season record in the count too (which we will hopefully be counting as over .500 this year!).

    Going into the 3rd game with TB and the Twins are 10-10. That makes it 8 games. Only 4 to go to make the over

    I dunno what to say man. "Beer League" Colabello is driving me nuts. He stands 10 feet from the plate and hits everything. As long as he can keep doing this, I'm taking the over.

    Suprisingly good start for the twins which is awesome. But IMO Kubel's and Plouffes bats are already slowing down, I'll take the under for a dollar.

    After Fridays lost, The Twins are 11-11. Going into Saturdays game with Detroit, the Twins will have started 10 games with a .500 record. If they win the game the Twins are guaranteed to start 12 games with a .500 record or better.

    The Twins won on Saturday and improved their record to 12-11. They will go into Sundays game for the 11th time with a .500 or better record. They are certain to go into Tuesdays game with a .500 record, which will make it 12 and a push. The twins need to win one more game to make the over for May. Win Twins !

    The Twins are back to 500 again with a 15-15 record for the year. That means that tomorrow the Twins will have started 13 games was a .500 record. The Twins made the OVER for the year. That was fun

    It will be interesting to see if they can hover around .500 for awhile. The combined records of the teams they face for the rest of May is 127-118.

    I'm very happy that my guess was wrong.
