per Pat:

1. 1991: 95-67 (1st AL West, 8 GA). Won all-time great World Series vs. Atlanta.

2. 1987: 85-77 (1st ALW, 2 GA). Amazing play vs. Detroit in ALCS; first Series win vs. St. Louis.

3. 1965: 102-60 (1st AL, 7 GA). Lost Game 7 of Series to all-time great Sandy Koufax.

4. 2009: 87-76 (1st AL Central, 1 GA). Game 163 vs. Detroit. Joe Mauer, MVP. Phil Cuzzi calls it foul.

5. 1962: 91-71 (2nd AL, 5 GB). Year 2 in our beloved erector set, and Twins chase mighty Yankees.

6. 1969: 97-65 (1st ALW, 9 GA). Billy Ball, Billy Brawl.

7. 1970: 98-64 (1st ALW, 9 GA). KO Punch, Killebrew & Oliva — and Cy for Jim Perry.

8. 1967: 91-71 (T-2nd AL, 1 GA). The Great Race ends badly in Fenway.

9. 2010: 94-68 (1st ALC, 6 GA). Target Field welcomed with exciting team and 3,223,640 tickets sold.

10. 2002: 94-67 (1st ALC, 13.5 GA). Everyday Eddie walking plank vs. Money Ballers. Baseball doesn't get any better.

No. 62: 2011, 62-99. By record, 2016 rates as the worst, but what this collapse led to and did to change the timeline for the anticipated Target Field honeymoon makes this season unmatched for horrid impact on the franchise. Those Twins finished 19-50, and then celebrated openly when avoiding 100 losses on the last day at the Target Field they had spent the summer polluting.


Win Twins!!
 

worth a read. he splits up the seasons into letter grades. of the 62 seasons, 12 get an A, 12 get a B, 12 get a C, 12 get a D, 2 get an 'incomplete' (strike year and covid year), and 12 get an F.

the 2022 season gets a D, ranked 37th overall.

That's the highest D. So, D+?
