Even though the Twins season has been over for a while now there is still a lot on the line when they take on the Kansas City Royals tonight in Minnesota. The Twins current record is 62-99 and they are only one loss away from 100 losses. If the Twins do lose to the Royals tonight it will mark only the second time in MLB history that a team with a 100 million or more dollar payroll will lose 100 games.
Many fans have been disgusted at this season’s performance but what most people don’t realize is that the Twins key players have been injured for most of the season and those who weren’t injured have been mostly terrible, with a few exceptions. On Wednseday’s broadcast of KFAN, in Minnesota, fans were calling in left and right complaining about the Twins horrible performances this year.
Now although Twins fans listening to KFAN on Wednesday might now be depressed because of all the facts being brought up about the Twins this years host Dan Barreiro did say that Carl Pavano will be on the mound tonight so the 100 loss mark could still be avoided. But I’m sure at this point in the season to Twins fans it doesn’t even matter anymore.
