If the Orioles played the Twins 162 times in a year... ...Jake Arrieta would make Justin Verlander look like a broken Rick Reed. ...they would rename Camden Yards to Markakis Goes Yards after he hit 108 home runs in a year. ...the Yankees, Red Sox, Rays, & Blue Jays would commit group suicide by filling their sunflower seeds with mini hand grenades.

No actually what would happen is the Twins would win anywhere between 70 and 90 games a year most likely.

Don't you understand sample size? 3 games does not equal 162. You can't base the entire year off of 3 games.

If we played the Orioles 162 times this year. The Twins would flirt with the playoffs and end up with a 2013 draft choice around the 20th spot.

A game at Target Field would probably look like this.

Oh but I can...the 1998 Florida Marlins went 1-2 (.333 Win%) in their opening series against the Cubs and they finished the season with a record of 54-108 (.333 Win%).
