When you compare this year’s stats to last year’s stats at this time, it is no wonder the Minnesota Twins are playing so poorly. Just take a look
-the Twins were in last place in all of baseball with only 113 runs scored through 35 games.
-They rank 27th in baseball in batting average and rank dead last in the American League at .231.
-Their RBI total of 101 is dead last in all of baseball
-A year ago, the Twins had a 21-12 first-place record compared to the present record of 12-23.
-Last year the Twins had eight hitters batting over .250. This year, they only have two players batting over .250: Denard Span at .288 and Jason Kubel at .355
-A year ago, the pitching staff had a ERA of 3.56, this the team’s ERA is 4.76
While the old saying goes, stats don’t tell you everything, in the case of the Twins it certainly does this year.
