You know it’s bad when you have just three guys play in more then 100 games. The Twins had the second worst offense in the American League behind just the Mariners and I think the big thing for the Twins to improve on is to just get healthy. Full seasons from Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer would go a long way towards the Twins getting back on track. Of course Michael Cuddyer could be gone and I don’t see Jim Thome coming back and those two were the Twins best hitters. Jason Kubel is also a free agent.
No Twin drove in 80 or even scored 80. Cuddyer, Jim THome , Kubel and Danny Valencia were the only guys to hit double digit home runs. And pretty much nobody hit better then .285. This team was just bad. Tsuyoshi Nishioka was horrible at the plate when he was in therer and Drew Butera hit .167 and he managed to get into over 90 games.
That also brings up the question whether the Twins should focus on the farm system or whether they should go for some quick fixes. I think the Twins have to think long and hard about any moves they make since you don’t want to throw good money after a mediocre result.
