Some other dude that’s probably worse
Six games left. Another bad year. Since the season is all but over, let’s take a look at how the team performed versus the league.
Batting: 9th (4.38 runs/game)
Pitching: 14th (5.19 runs/game)
Starters: 14th (5.94 runs/game)
Relievers: 8th (4.19 runs/game)
Fielding: 11th (.688 DefEff)
Compared to last year:
Batting: 13th (3.82 runs/game)
Pitching: 13th (4.96 runs/game)
Starters: 12th (5.16 runs/game)
Relievers: 14th (4.94 runs/game)
Fielding: 14th (.677 DefEff)
I don’t think the numbers for this season are describing anything we don’t already know: the starters have been awful. I do think the improvement in the offense and relief pitching from bad to below average makes this season not a complete loss. I am very curious what the Twins will do this offseason.
