    Despite their ineptitude, the Twins only have one qualified pitcher in the Top 50 in HR's given up. The most common teams with pitchers on this list are the CWS and the brewers

    Don't they only have one qualified pitcher at all?

    The Twins have far and away the worst pitching WAR in the league at 1.6. The Nationals pitchers have a 1.6 WAR...on offense. The Nationals pitchers are just as good at hitting as the Twins pitchers are at pitching.

    Twins starters have the worst HR/FB rate in the entire league, 16.1%, which has led to allowing the most HR in the league.


    The relievers have *only* allowed the 3rd most HR in the league.

    There are only two players that qualify for the batting title who's SLG is lower than their OBP. The Twins have both of them (Revere and Carroll)

    Also, Revere and Carroll are the only regulars in the Majors that do not have a home run.

    Revere's SLG is still higher than his OBP, but not by much.

    Drew Butera finished with a trifecta, yet again.

    Sub .200 batting average, to go along with sub .300 on-base and slugging percentages.

    That's three consecutive seasons. How many teams in history can claim awesomeness like this?

    BA OBP SLG OPS
    .197 .237 .296 .533
    .167 .210 .239 .449
    .198 .270 .279 .550

    The stat era's new measure of futility - the Butera line of below .550 OPS?
