Twins Struggling, According to Pythagorean Formulas

New, comments

Not that we didn't understand this anyway.

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.
