I’m glad to see Ex-Twins in 2020 thread is back up and running. This is also one of my favorite threads over the last 5 years.

The Twins have never been undefeated this late into the calendar year (July 25, 2020).

If Max Kepler played a full season against Giolito and Trevor Bauer, he would average 187 home runs a year (approximately)

If the season ended today there would be thirteen teams tied for the second-eight playoff spots in the AL.

At the end of the 2020 season, the Twins will still hold the all-time team record for homers.

On a related note—there are four players hitting over .500 right now, and it’s almost August!

The 1894 NL Boston Beaneaters scored 1220 runs, a Major League record. They finished 8 games behind the Baltimore Orioles with an 83-49 record good for 3rd place in the NL. The Twins are averaging 9 runs per game after their first three, they would need to do a little better to catch the Beaneaters 9.24 runs per game. The Twins will need to score 555 runs in 60 games to claim that honor.

If the season ended today, the ALC would send 4 teams to the postseason.

21..That is the number of consecutive games in August against 3 teams; Pirates, Royals and Brewers.

20% of the way through the season, Twins relief pitchers with a 0.00 ERA other than runs that have bounced off of fielders gloves:

 

Cody Stashak
Matt Wisler
Tyler Duffey
Sergio Romo
Tayler Rogers

Trevor May

 

But seriously, that's absolutely absurd to go 12 games and have 6 relievers that essentially haven't given up a run. Tyler Clippard has only allowed 1 run in 6 innings as well. That group of 7 relievers stats are as follows;

  • 34 1/3 IP
  • 2 ER (0.52 ERA)
  • 12 hits (3.2 hits/9)
  • 9 walks (2.4 walks/9)
  • 0.61 WHIP
  • 47 K's (12.4 K/9)

Now Smeltzer/Thorpe/Alcala/Littell/Thielbar have combined 21 runs, 31 hits, 14 walks in just 21 innings... so that's pretty bad lol... but theoretically if you can go 7 deep with Dobnak/Pineda/Hill or Maeda or Odorizzi as your long men essentially instead of that group (and Berrios/2 of Hill/Maeda/Odorizzi starting)... you're in pretty good shape.

5 game sweep on the road. Unheard of. So thank goodness Rodgers blew the save and took a L yesterday.
