Barring an unforeseen comeback, that was probably Rosario's last moment as a Twin.

Score more than two total runs in two games and take the ump out of the equation
Sure. But it's a lot easier to score runs when guys who should reach base via walk get the free base when umpires don't call pitches out of the zone strikes.

Just got a HR last inning.

Twins strand one on base and head to the 8th.

Tim Timmons makes horrific calls on back to back plays in favor of Houston. Ridiculous that he missed either of those. Let alone both.

BINGO...hard to hit with your hands firmly gritting your throat. They are just a completely different team in the playoffs. It’s truly unbelievable. 17 straight losses over 15 years. I’m not sure how that’s even remotely possible.

Cruz walks and Buxton comes in to pinch run? I don't get that move. Buxton is a threat to steal and can move, but need Cruz on defense.

Hopefully BTN picks up a fair number of games. I typically watch them on DVR anyway as I am busy most Friday and Saturday nights during the season.

There has been one consistent thing through all of it. But, even if you go there the Vikings have had many many owners and it hasn't mattered. The professional hockey team has had many owners, and completely different franchises and it didn't matter.

So, it boils down to one thing. Minnesota. That's the consistent entity across all of it.

I agree but to be honest I did watch quite a few games this year and it always seemed like the hitting just wasn't there all that much. Not sure why.

Yeah, we set that record yesterday, longest playoff losing streak in North American pro sports history. Today was just building on that record.

"The Twins' playoff streak is not only a major league record, but is the longest in U.S. sports history. The NHL's Chicago Blackhawks lost 16 straight playoff games from 1975 to 1979. Before the Twins, the previous MLB record belonged to the Red Sox, who lost 13 playoff games in a row starting with the infamous Game 6 of the 1986 World Series."

"The Twins have led in 11 of the 18 losses, but have been outscored 107-48 overall - including 44-14 from the seventh inning on. The Astros scored three runs in the top of the ninth in Game 1 to win 4-1 and scored the go-ahead run in Game 2 in the seventh inning. The Twins haven't scored more than four runs in any their past 15 defeats."

"(Twins have lost) 13 consecutive playoff games at home. Yes, after pursing home-field advantage so robustly over the past couple of weeks, they remained winless (0-5) in the postseason at Target Field."

The Twins team motto for next year "Strive for 21 in 21"

In 2021 the Twins look to go for blackjack - 21 straight playoff losses with a series sweep (in the best of 5 division round) after winning the division.

Being a Minnesota sports fan is cruel and unusually punishment.

When you stop expecting anything it's not as bad. Don't give any money (tickets or merch) to any of the big four teams. Don't watch regular season games with full attention or regularly. Find a non MN sport to watch: I picked F1.

Only ever expect a championship from Gopher hockey, and they look to be a few years away still.

Give us a break, nobody is reveling in this epic fail. But we’re also not Fning Packer fans, when our team pisses down it’s leg, we’re not mopping it up, then pretending it’s beer and drinking it! 🔥

Looks like Segio's Twins career is over. I guess they could re sign him to a lower salary, but that doesn't seem likely.
