Eleven games in, the Twins have been outscored 97 to 66, which by any measure is just sad. According to a standard pythagorean formula, with these runs we're coming up with a winning percentage of .317. After thirteen games, this would come out to about four wins. Over a 162-game season, a .317 winning percentage means you're a 51-win team.
Without Joe Mauer in the lineup, a middle of the road offense is already struggling. If the pitching can't get itself together, this will be a long summer.
