In 2015, Brock had a thread tracking wins as a reminder of the rotten baseball we have watched in recent years, and compare where we stand in W/L compared to previous seasons. 

Let's see how 2017 plays out.

Tracking is by number of games instead of dates because games by date/month varies from year to year.

 

Twins current 2017 win total: 25

Year – Number of games to reach 25 Wins
2011 – 64
2012 – 60
2013 – 54
2014 – 52
2015 – 43
2016 – 76
2017 – 43

Other notes:
-Both 2015 and 2017 squads both needed 43 games to reach 25 wins (25-18). 
-At the 43 game point in 2015, the Twins were in the midst of a hot streak. They went 7-3 over their next 10 games and peaked at 32-21. After that, they cooled off and went 51-58 over the remainder of the season. 

 

I will try to update this at various points throughout the season

Man, last year.  Real bad.  I think I blocked it out of my memory.

Reaching the 25th win in other notable seasons:

1982 - game 83 (not a typo)
1987 - game 48
1991 - game 50
2000 - game 54 (the last 90-loss season of the "1990s")
2001 - game 35 (came out of nowhere to compete for division)
2002 - game 42 (first trip to postseason since '91)

2017 - game 43

We could lose 36 in a row.... and have the same record as last year.

I don't think "we" could, truth be told.

And why would we want to, anyway?

Nothing is so annoying as someone going on talking when I'm interrupting.

Update:

 

Twins current 2017 win total: 34
Year – Number of games to reach 34 Wins
2011 – 79
2012 – 79
2013 – 72
2014 – 72
2015 – 62
2016 – 93
2017 – 63

 

Still pretty much on pace with 2015. However, it still feels like quite a different season for me. 2015 seemed to have more hot and cold stretches. 2017 seems to be more consistent. 2016 just doesn't seem to fit in this snapshot.

Other thoughts?

The Twins are tracking ahead of 2015? That's a surprise to me.

The 2015 Twins went 7-3 over their next 10, and something like 17-10 after that before falling off a bit. So it will still be a challenge to keep pace. This point was basically the low point for 2015 - they were 7-18 leading up to win 58.

Twins current 2017 win total: 61
Year – Number of games to reach 61 Wins
2011 – 159
2012 – 148
2013 – 137
2014 – 139
2015 – 122
2016 – NA
2017 – 120

I could not believe the jump the 2011 team made. It took 2011 team 22 games to go from 58 to 61 wins.

Twins current 2017 win total: 67
Year – Number of games to reach 67 Wins
2011 – NA (63-99)
2012 – NA (66-96)

Today, with 5 weeks to play, the 2017 team surpassed the 2012 and 2013 teams, leaving only 2014 and 2015.

If I put the over under for this year at 83.5, who will take the over?

Just 8 more wins and they eclipse my start of season guesstimate.

 

 

And I'd love nothing more than to end up very, very wrong by the time the season is done.

83-84 wins seems to be right on the mark, a couple more if some of their opponents throw in the towel.
