Step one was moving on from Terry Ryan. Step two is to hire from outside the organization. They need a makeover.
Too bad they don't get to play the Rangers more, right?
Hindsight is a benefit we don't yet have in the spring, but in looking at this roster, it amazes me that anyone thought this team could contend. It's very, very bad right now.
The upstart Twins have won five of their last eight games. Keep your eye on them! (Hey, I'm allowed some sarcasm here).
Since moving to Minnesota and becoming the Twins, the franchise has only lost 100 games in a season once (60-102 in 1982). The 2016 Twins are on pace to go 51-111.
This is probably worthy of a lengthy discussion in another space, but it's about time to fire (or ask for the resignation of) general manager Terry Ryan, isn't it? I feel like they have lots of potentially good, young players but need a totally new direction.
Coming this July: Eduardo Nunez, AL All-Star.
Phil Hughes set the all-time single-season record for strikeout-to-walk ratio in 2014 and now he's been rightfully demoted to the bullpen. That sort of helps sum it up, no?
When you're last in runs and ERA in your league, that's probably the sign of a bad team. Of course, we don't need to think that hard. They're on pace to lose 122 games.
They're on pace to go 43-119 and they aren't the worst team in baseball. /Drops Mic\
