Best Organizations of the Decade




Ask yourself since 2000 have the Twins been one of baseballs better or more succesful organizations in the league?

If your initial thought was no

Who comes to mind ahead of the Twins? the Yankees, Red Sox, Angels, maybe the Braves or Marlins....

If you answered yes

It is my opinion that you are largely correct

 

Record since 2000:

2000 69-93 (led by Tom Kelly)

2001 85-77 (Tom Kelly's last year as Manager)

2002 94 -67

2003 90 -72

2004 92 -70 -only hit .266 as a team that year (relied heavily on pitching)

2005  83-79

2006 96-66 (probably our single best year this decade)

2007 79-83

2008 88-75* lost in tiebreaker to Chi Sox

2009 87-76* won in tiebreaker over Detroit Tigers

TOTAL AVE.

86.3 Wins a year to 75.7 Losses

that is pretty darn good.
