Twins

What if every Twins player repeated their best season in 2019?

Alright Twins fans, let’s maximize our hope and optimism into this post. These are not at all predictions, so don’t get mad at me. Let’s find out literally how good the twins could be. There is no chance that this happens. I’ll start with the lineup, click here to see why I put the lineup together this way.

1.) Jorge Polanco: .256 AVG, .723 OPS, 13 HR, 74 RBIs, 2.2 WAR

2.) CJ Cron: .253 AVG, .816 OPS, 30 HR, 74 RBIs, 2.0 WAR

3.) Nelson Cruz: .302 AVG, .936 OPS, 44 HR, 93 RBIs, 5.1 WAR

4.) Miguel Sano: .264 AVG, .859 OPS, 28 HR, 77 RBIs, 2.5 WAR

5.) Eddie Rosario: .290 AVG, .836 OPS, 27 HR, 78 RBIs, 1.7 WAR

6.) Jonathan Schoop: .293 AVG, .841 OPS, 32 HR, 105 RBIs, 5.2 WAR

7.) Max Kepler: .243 AVG, .737 OPS, 19 HR, 69 RBIs, 2.0 WAR

8.) Jason Castro: .276 AVG, .835 OPS, 18 HR, 56 RBIs, 4.1 WAR

9.) Byron Buxton: .253 AVG, .728 OPS, 16 HR, 51 RBIs, 5.2 WAR

Bench:

BE1.) Mitch Garver: .268 AVG, .749 OPS, 7 HR, 45 RBIs, 0.9 WAR

BE2.) Ehire Adrianza: .265 AVG, .707 OPS, 2 HR, 24 RBIs, 0.9 WAR

BE3.) Jake Cave: .269 AVG, .797 OPS, 13 HR, 45 RBIs, 1.5 WAR

2018 ranks with these stats: AVG: 1st, OPS: 1st, HR: 2nd, RBIs: 3rd.

So this would be a top three lineup if everything went completely perfect. It won’t happen but hypothetically that’s pretty cool. There is definitely potential for a top 10 lineup here though.

Now onto the pitching side of things, let’s start with the rotation

1.) Jose Berrios: 3.84 ERA, 1.144 WHIP, 3.31 K/BB, 3.9 WAR

2.) Kyle Gibson: 3.62 ERA, 1.302 WHIP, 2.27 K/BB, 3.8 WAR

3.) Jake Odorizzi: 3.35 ERA, 1.152 WHIP, 3.26 K/BB, 3.5 WAR

4.) Michael Pineda: 4.37 ERA, 1.226 WHIP, 7.43 K/BB, 2.0 WAR

5.) Martin Perez: 3.62 ERA, 1.335 ERA, 2.27!K/BB, 1.5 WAR

Now moving on to the eight pitchers in the bullpen after looking at what would obviously be a pretty solid starting staff.

Bullpen:

Addison Reed: 1.97 ERA, 0.940 WHIP, 7.00 K/BB, 2.7 WAR

2.) Blake Parker: 2.54 ERA, 0.832 WHIP, 5.38 K/BB, 1.8 WAR

3.) Matt Magill: 3.81 ERA, 1.429 WHIP, 2.43 K/BB, 0.8 WAR

4.) Taylor Rogers: 2.63 ERA, 0.951 WHIP, 4.69 K/BB, 2.2 WAR

5.) Trevor Hildenberger: 3.21 ERA, 1.048 WHIP, 7.33 K/BB, 0.8 WAR

6.) Trevor May: 3.20 ERA, 1.026 WHIP, 7.20 K/BB, 0.6 WAR

7.) Adalberto Mejia: 2.01 ERA, 1.164 WHIP, 1.44 K/BB, 1.0 WAR

8.) Fernando Romero: 4.69 ERA, 1.419 WHIP, 2.37 K/BB, 0.4 WAR

2018 ranks with these stats: ERA: 2nd, WHIP: 2nd, 1st.

Again, these are not predictions I was simply having fun seeing what the highest potential of this twins team is. If this happened the twins would win 112 games so yeah this was just for fun. If you have any other ideas like this, let me know.
