Twins Won’t Go 0-162

After the Twins lost their first two games of the season, historians were scrambling to see if a team had ever lost all 162 games.  Although they are still researching, it appears as though no team has ever gone winless for an entire season.  And the Twins won’t be the first after their very shaky 4-3 win yesterday in Toronto.

While it was nice to get the first one out of the way, a few red flags emerged during their trip to Canada.  The new second baseman from Japan seems very, very nervous to me.  And while it was good to see Joe Nathan back out on the mound closing out a win, it was painful to watch.  He topped out at 90 m.p.h. and his slider had very little bite to it.  So in turn, he refused to throw anything over the plate because he didn’t trust his stuff.  Will he regain some arm strength?  Yes.  Will he make it all the way back to where he was a couple of years ago?  Maybe.

So now it’s off to New York for four games.  I’m a little concerned that this team might be 1-6 or 2-5 before they get to Target Field.  Maybe the Yankees will be overconfident?
