A really good 4 game road sweep (which doesn't happen that often) to go back up 2.5 games (3 in the loss column).
At 76-48 the Twins are currently on pace for 99 wins. We all had that predicted for this season right?
Going 23-15 (current season pace) over the last 38 games seems reasonable when 26 of the games are against the Tigers (10 games), White Sox (9 games), and Royals (7 games).
Go 19-19 the rest of the way and they end up with 95 wins.
I agree they have had some bad points the past two months but the players are having a very good season. I wish ownership would have been willing to take on payroll at the trade deadline to make a splash pitching move to give them a better chance in the playoffs against the Astros and Yankees. In my opinion this was a season to go for it since the hitters are averaging almost 6 runs a games (5.82).
Does anybody really think they will have a better offense/chance in future years? When you are a smaller market team unfortunately you get a lot less chances to have great seasons so in my opinion when you do you should go for it.
