Why do we even care about such rubbish?

The off season presents a low threshold of conversation-worthy topics. Especially, on internet sport forums.

Only 145 days, 12 hours, and 43 minutes until opening day!

Is it a fluke that the Twins finished where they did? I doubt it. They worked very hard this year.

 

Is it a fluke that the Twins made the playoffs? Yes, there were a rare number of sub-.500 teams in the AL.

The author made a false equivalence between these two things. The Twins will be good next year, and with some pitching potentially very good.

There will be no shortage of rankings, so maybe I shouldn't add it to this thread, but 538.com yesterday ranked all teams' 5-year futures based on current "team characteristics", in an article mostly about the Astros and Dodgers. Twins place 9th.

We couldn't afford fire alarms, so Dad hung Jiffy Pop over the doors.
