The Twins 2020 schedule was only released last week and now MLB has released the 2021 schedule with the thought that teams will be able to play 162-games. This might be a big assumption on the part of MLB because it will like only happen, if there is a widely available COVID-19 vaccine. The current season is in jeopardy because of the current state of our nation. However, let’s take a dive into the 2021 season and see what it could mean for your potential 2020 World Series Champions and their chances for a repeat.Minnesota is scheduled to start the season on a six-game road trip with three games in Milwaukee and Detroit. This allows for the Twins to open at home as part of a three-game series versus Seattle on April 8. The Twins than face off against the Red Sox for four games before heading to the West Coast for six games split between the Angels and the Athletics.

From there the Twins have a tough stretch in June with a back-to-back series with the Yankees and the Astros from June 8-13. Some other important series include the an interleague series with the Reds from June 21-22. Then in June, the Angles and Mike Trout, the best player of all-time, come back to Minneapolis for three games (July 22-25).

The end of August also provides a critical part of the schedule against National League foes. After starting the year in Milwaukee, the Twins will face-off with the Brewers for three games in Minnesota. Milwaukee is going to be a strong team in 2020 and this could continue in 2021. At the end of August, Minnesota is scheduled to play the Cubs at Target Field.

Obviously, there are plenty of important series against other AL Central squads. That being said, there are plenty of questions about what the future might hold for baseball. Will Cleveland continue to trade away pieces? How will the White Sox adjust to being contenders? Are the Royals and the Tigers going to rise in the years to come?

2021 Important Dates:
Opening Day: April 1 at Milwaukee
Home Opener: April 8 vs. Seattle
Trout Visits MN: July 22-25
Milwaukee at MN: August 27-29
Cubs at MN: August 31- September 1
Last Home Series: Tigers from September 28-30
Final Series: Twins @ Royals on October 1-3

Do you think the Twins will play a full schedule in 2021? What could change for the Twins before the 2021 season begins? Leave a COMMENT and start the discussion.

Along with a vaccine, it will take more Americans taking this virus seriously for a 2021 season to happen. Masks, social-distancing, small groups... the things other countries (Japan, Thailand, South Korea, New Zealand, Germany) have done to slow the spread in their countries.

I would say the likelihood of a vaccine being widely available in this country before April of 2021 is less than 20%. More reasonable timeframe is late fall 2021. Even that would be record time.

Mike Trout, the best player of all-time

 

Respectfully, no. Babe Ruth is the best player of all time. The reason that is the case is that Ruth, in addition to being one of the best batters of all time, was an excellent major league pitcher. There has been no player who was Ruth's equal as a batter who was even remotely close to being his equal as a pitcher.

Why is playing the Cubs an important date? They won’t be that great. Also, all games against Chicago, both teams, are on weekdays. No weekend series against them, home or away.

It's interleague, that's why. Of course, that won't seem that strange after this year.

Okay, then why is that interleague game more important than others? :)

So not a fan of the Cubs :)

An interleague game is more important than others since we don't play very many of them, okay???? I'm not explaining any more times:)
