A loss today breaks the Twins record of 102 losses in a season.
In franchise history, only the 1904, '07, '09 and '49 Senators have lost more than 102 ballgames in a season.
In franchise history, the current team sits in 7th place with a
losing winning % of .354 ...
Over the past 6 seasons (including 2011), the team is 404-564, accumulating a .417 W-L% over that time.
Only 7 teams in franchise history have allowed more runs than the current squad (873), and I thoroughly expect them to move into 5th place (>880) or perhaps 4th (>889) on that inauspicious list by close of business Sunday.
Kyle Gibson v. Danny Duffey.
On the broadcast last night, Bert suggested Gibson needs a good outing to get his ERA below 5, as if there's some psychological benefit to having a high-4's ERA v. anything above 5. Yeah .... okay.
