It’s definitely bad. The worst? Dunno. I remember some truly awful teams from 2012-2016, never mind the 90s.

But that’s picking nits. They were all terrible at baseball in fundamental ways. 

Biggest underachievers in my almost 3 decades of watching.

I could be totally wrong. Didn’t Parker Hageman make a montage video of Robbie Grossman’s adventures in the OF during 2016?

Yes. I believe that was the first Jefferson Starship video from Parker. Hilarious. 

Thanks for confirming. Just spent the last 5 min combing the internet for it and came up empty… That was the worst fundamentally sound Twins team I’ve seen, no doubt.

I said nothing about bad.

Those 90s teams got beat due to massive talent differentials. But they never looked as bad at actually playing the game.

Can’t help but laugh with the ticket promotions every half inning. Give it another month and the poor ticket sales reps will be breaking windshields and leave tickets on the dash. 

Isn’t showing clips of Buxton in the promos fraud? There can’t be a realistic likelihood of a fan buying a random ticket for a random date seeing Buxton play. Splitting legal hairs here maybe.

So... how about Jose Miranda?!

 

His fielding splits are interesting. Pretty much equal innings spent at 1B, 2B, and 3B this year. Let’s hope he spends more time at 3B in St Paul. Another 2B isn’t needed too much in Minneapolis.

If Miranda is for real, I think Arraez becomes redundant and tradable in the winter. Need to make a call on Polanco or Arraez to man 2B in 2022 anyway.

German Marquez has a no hitter through 8 for the Rockies. If he accomplishes the feat, that will be 8 official no hitters. 9 technically with Bumgarner’s 7 inning DH game.

I went in blind to the Rockies broadcast, and they are more nervous than the pitcher lol. Voices are shaky and mumbling about nothing in particular while the Rockies hitters are at the plate.
