2011 Twins Statistical Overview Episode III: Revenge of the Spiders

So, the Twins apparently realized that I was starting on a new Statistical Overview post, as they immediately went on a five-game rampage and torpedoed some of my stats (including a treasured 1899 Cleveland Spiders comparison). However, I remain undeterred, because make no mistake - this team has still been plenty bad. On with the stats...
