I’ve been a Twins fan for over 50 years, and I believe I have hit a new low.Given the postseason/Yankee futility and being so outclassed and embarrassed on a national stage, I’m not sure I’ve ever felt worse.
How does this rank with other humiliations in a series of games?Here’s a short list (I’m keeping this in a human perspective and not including devastating injuries and illnesses to players) of crushing team debacles on the field:
Losing the last two games of the season to the Red Sox in 1967 (mitigated somewhat by being part of the greatest pennant race in history and that Carl Yastrzemski was superhuman that year).
The late season collapse in 1984 (mitigated somewhat by our probably not belonging in the pennant race to begin with).
The entire 1982 season (mitigated somewhat by the novelty of the new stadium and the critics recognizing that we had a core of players with bright futures)
Losing six straight to the Orioles in the playoffs in 1969 and 1970 (mitigated by the fact that this is worse!)
Anything else on the list?How do they rank?
