  1. Haven't seen it mentioned anywhere, but the Twins are within striking distance of the team Total Bases record for a season.

    2003 Red Sox had 2832 total bases.

    With two games to go, the Twins are at 2799, the Astros are 60 TB behind.

  2. Salt River scored three in the eighth to put away a 6-1 victory over Mesa yesterday.

    Luke Raley was 0-for-3 with a walk and a run. He's batting .130/.192/.261 in 23 at-bats.
    Ben Rortvedt was 1-for-2 and was hit by a pitch. He's batting .111/.200/.111 in 9 at-bats.
    Jovani Moran pitched 1.1 scoreless innings, giving up a walk and striking out three. He has an ERA of 5.40 and has struck out seven in 3.1 innings.

  3. I would like to reiterate that I am not upset that Cleveland did not make the playoffs at all.

    Also, how cool it is to follow a 100 win team for the first time in my lifetime.

    1. I was thinking the same last night, too; I think yesterday’s game pushed them past the ‘91 Twins for best Pythag record of many of our lifetimes. Only the ‘65 (100 pW) & ‘69 (99 pW) squads had better records since the franchise moved to Minnesota.

      1. The poor 1930 Senators & their skipper Walter Johnson (he seems to be fairly well known) own the best Pythag winning percentage — .616 — in franchise history. That team won 94 games, but finished 8 games behind the 102-win Athletics, despite having a Pythag that was 2 wins better than Connie Mack’s blanched pachyderms. It was Johnson’s highest managerial finish, and perhaps his worst year: his wife, 36 years old, died of heat stroke on August 1st.
