It’s time to start thinking about 2019 and beyond IMO.
Going crazy and acquiring a bunch of rental bats and draining the farm system would be ill-advised. Each fan can reach their own conclusions and make their own commitment to level of support.
But in this incredibly weak 2018 AL Central, it's highly premature to just write the season off before Memorial Day.
The pitching is really starting to shape up, timed right with the Romero promotion. With even more veteran and prospect impact pitching infusion just around the corner, it's shortsighted to just assume that this currently sputtering offense definitely won't fire on more cylinders as we head into the hot summer.
1987 is still within the realm of memory. All it takes is:
1) for enough players in the batting order to get hot going into October and
2) that the pitching continue its current upward trajectory.

"forcing Twins fans to endure more bitter, baseless, and tiresome cheap shots about the Twins FO."
