Here we are the the 3/4 mark
Posted 19 August 2012 - 05:55 PM
50 wins, 70 losses.
Worst in the AL.
3 games worse than last year's team at this point.
Already more losses than the 2010 squad.
Depressing times in Twins Territory. We haven't even hit opening day of the State Fair, and I'm starting to turn my attention to the T-Wolves. (The Wild, sadly, will be locked out, and I don't really want to think about the Vikings.)
The 2011 Twins went 10-32 over their final 42. Hopefully we'll see something a lot better than that this year. But perhaps, perversely, it would be better if we didn't. I can't imagine 2 consecutive seasons of sucking that badly in the last 2 months wouldn't result in some pretty significant moves, even for an organization as change-resistant as this one.

On the plus side, some nice young talent coming soon.

I'm looking forward to seeing some young guys in September. That's about all we have to look forward to at this point. Finishing last in the AL or third-to-last in the AL isn't going to matter much, as the NL has several completely awful teams that are probably going to snatch up the top three picks no matter what the Twins do from here on out.
Damn the NL and their suckiness.

Cant see them finishing with as bad a record as last yr but with the pitching staff hitching its hopes to Blackburn/Deduno(gonna catch up with him....Gardy says so also) & saying they will not allow Diamond to get much past 200 total innings...it could get scary.

They DONT have to play, but should be up to get the AA guys feet wet at the very least.
