They were nine games under .500 and ten games out of the division. They did not have a 50% chance of making the postseason. They probably didn't even have a 5% chance of making the postseason.


The two possible outcomes were making the postseason, and not making the postseason. Sounds like a 50% proposition to me :)

Have you ever played the game? Maybe you've been spending too much time on fangraphs. Should a team with a 50% playoff chance just give up with 60 games to go. If you think thats out of it then go ahead and think that. One of the greatest things I ever heard anyone say about us Minnesotans is we just wont Quit. You should have to excuse me if it infuriated me when our own FO quit on us in 2018. I guess we should have just quit in May 2006.

We waited until Oakland came to town in October for that
