Fun with Numbers 2021


Recommended Posts

Surely they will raise their numbers as the year goes along, but currently the 2021 Detroit Tigers are batting a collective .195.

 

The last time a major league team had a batting average below .200 for an entire season? 1884, when 3 clubs "achieved" the feat in the questionable Union Association.

August 2nd and we are 44-62.

We can still win 100 games!

 

And if most of them are 1 run wins, we can still coast in with fewer runs scored than our opponents.

 

Oh, and i had to search to find this thread. There is another one in other baseball, but it is for 2021 season, not just 2021, so i'm not surprised this one is more fun.

The first sentence had me worried, but a fifty-six game winning streak would indeed be fun.

Hmm, maybe we should fix the pitching staff?

Yeah, I'm too lazy to actually look it up, but I'd imagine the real takeaway here is the fact the Twins have given up 6 or more runs in ~45% of their games so far.

 

That's ... awful.

I don't know if I've posted this "fun with numbers" before but in case I haven't, it's something I stumbled across a couple of years ago, checking to see if my memory was selective or if the Twins have truly been this horrifying.

Yes, they've been this horrifying.

The Twins have an 18 game postseason losing streak, right?

They scored first in 12 of those games.

That's 67% of the postseason games they lost.

I'm just going to lock this thread now. It can't get worse than this.
