twins 2021 season
I'm normally a pretty optimistic kind of guy. I'm not a statistician. I don't profess to know everything about baseball or specifically the Twins. But I'm seeing some very troubling signs with this team after its fast start out of the gate. Leads being blown. Too many errors being made (physical and mental ones). The bullpen continuing its inconsistency from last season. Key players not contributing at the level of their pay scale (you know who they are).

I'm sure folks will scream at me for this. But it's my opinion that these issues (and more) are systemic. To the point that I'm prepared to say that for all purposes the Twin's season is done. Not mathematically speaking. Conveyed image speaking. I see nothing to tell me that a tweak here or there in the lineup will change things. And I don't buy the COVID-19 issue. They were loosing long before that came in to view.

I REALLY hope I'm wrong about this. But I don't thing I am. The Twins are dead (in 2021). Long live the Twins...
