Twins suck? That's odd.

Ron Gardenhire is in the midst of his eighth season as manager of the Minnesota Twins. That means Gardy has now managed four even-year seasons (2002, '04, '06 and '08) and four odd-year seasons (2003, '05, '07 and '09).

In the four even years, the Twins have averaged 93 victories per season and have won three division titles.

After Friday evening's loss to the Detroit Tigers, the Twins are on pace to win only 79 games this season. If they maintain that mediocre pace, the Twins will have averaged only 83 victories per odd year, with only one division title.

Oh well. If the tradition holds, the inaugural season at Target Field should be a successful one!
