129-199. As much as I wish that was the final score to a freakish offensive basketball showcase, it’s not. It is sadly the Minnesota Twins record over the past two seasons, the total wins and losses ever since being knocked out of the playoffs in the Divisional Round against the New York Yankees in 2010.
The Twins have six American League Central titles: 2002-2004, 2006 and 2009-2010. They can pretty much claim half a title in 2008 when they lost their first of a pair of Game 163s. The Twins haven’t quite seen that level of success in a while.
All signs point towards 2014 being the year the Twins are working for right now, but some fans are holding out hope for a positive 2013. Either way there are a certain number of things the Twins need to have happen to regain the AL Central crown.
