6 games back (7 if you factor in that Cleveland holds the tie breaker against us) and only one game against the Guardians (today).

16 games to go.

If Cleveland plays .500 ball the rest of the way, the Twins would need to win 15 of 16 to win the division.  (Those numbers might not be exact, but I think they are close.)

It was a good run with lots of bright spots on the team this year.  It was a fun summer and more hope again for next year as they'll get a lot of guys back.

I sure hope Correa sees it the same way and gives the Twins one more year.

If they could just figure out how to keep Buxton healthy for an entire year.  :doah:

Bright spots for me....

Starting pitching. With the exception of Archer it was fine.
Bullpen prior to July when Baldelli had already burned them up.
Miranda
Gordon
Lewis
Urshala
First 1/2 Arreaz

Bad spots

Kepler all year
Catching all year
Pegan
Archer
Baldelli
Polanco

What I expected

Correa
Sano
Celestino
2nd 1/2 Arreaz
Front office. 6 years and they haven't shown me much other than they can hype a farm system.


As Denny Green would say.......they are who we thought they are.

I didn't expect anything from Sano either.  In fact, it was probably for the best he wasn't hogging a place in the lineup.  It gave younger players a chance to play more frequently.

Baldeli sure did "baby" Archer.  Don't know if he is under control next year, but with a full off-season, let's see if they can help him take the next step.

I'll also be looking forward to see if Arreaz can make the adjustment next year.  Seems the league figured him out the second half of the season and everything he hit went right to a defensive player.

Yes, they are who we thought they were, but the sure made it interesting - and with a lot of 2nd and 3rd stringers.

Archer will be gone next year. Maeda & Ober will be ready to go.

The 2 players on each side of second rule should help guys like Arreaz & Kepler.

During 1 of the last couple game, I heard Bremer say that they've used the most starting pitchers of anybody in MLB this year, 33. He also added that they have had 84 different players on the roster so far this season. Really like what I've seen out of Duran this season, hope he stays healthy.

I believe the # is 37 pitchers now. Ober and Duran were decent, the rest of the stuff the front office hyped so hard last year in the minors aren't ready.

Be very interesting to see what the off season brings. I believe the time is running out on Rocco & Levine. I think Falvey would jump ship if another job came along.
