Prosecutor wrote:They're a mess right now with a 7-12 record. Joe Mauer is on the DL. Their main problem is they're not hitting.The Twins have scored 57 runs in 19 games, or 3.0 runs per game, which puts them dead last among all major league teams. Every National League team has outscored the Twins desptie not having a DH. Their team BA is .233 and their OBP is a horrific .285, also last in baseball.Morneau is hitting .208Thome is at .191Jason Kubel and Denard Span are the only Twins hitting over .258. They're at .319 and .312 respectively, so you have to be careful with these two. However, nobody on the Twins has more than two home runs and they only have 8 as a team in 19 games.Their team ERA is 4.55, which puts them 12th out of 14 A.L. teams. Liriano, who pitches tomorrow, has a 7.40 ERA and Pavano, who goes Sunday, is at 5.47.Their closer, Joe Nathan, is at 11.37. What's going on with him? To be fair, the Twins have played 14 of their 19 games on the road, so they're probably not as bad as their record suggests. They're 2-3 at home.Still, the Tribe gets to play them when they're struggling and without Joe Mauer, so they need to take advantage of this opportunity to stomp on them while they're down.
