Strib: Sid: Twins have no hope...of winning 100 games.

9

Under the headline, "Twins have no hope," Sid Hartman reasons that the Twins have to win at an .800 clip for the rest of the season to make the playoffs. Of course, winning 80% of their remaining games would leave the Twins with about 100 wins, which would have been more than enough to win the central basically every year the central has existed. Winning at a not-unthinkable .600 clip for the rest of the season would give us about 84 wins and an off-chance at winning what seems to be a very weak division. Not trying to beat up on an elder gentleman's off-the-cuff math, but just for the record, and contra our esteemed paper of record, there is still *some* hope.
