    Agreed. Garbage offense is the big issue. 2 hits through 8 innings is typically not going to cut it in the playoffs. Of course, Polanco's error costing the team three runs is not going to cut it in the playoffs either.

    The pitching was good enough to get the job done today.

    17 in a row...woof.

      He gets out of the inning if not for Polanco's error. Romo did his part. The defense let him down.

        17 straight losses...and thankfully over tomorrow at 18.
        Ownership never learns...nor cares
        It won't be "over" if they lose tomorrow. The streak will be at 18 ready to start back up again whenever the Twins make the playoffs again.

              Glutton for punishment watching the Twins find a way to lose again today?

                  Nope. They do not hold the record for most consecutive playoff series losses. Yet.

                    I'll be honest though. The consecutive playoff losses record they're setting is on its way to becoming one of those "unbreakable" baseball records, like Cy Young's 511 wins. You can't be a playoff caliber team and not at least luck into one win once in awhile.
                    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                      • This could already be way worse. 2004 we won game 1 (ALDS). 2003 we won game 1 (ALDS), and 2002 we won game 1 (ALCS). Thats 3-28.

                        Braves and Cubs both lost 10 series in a row.

                        • There is an oddly high percentage of commentators, specifically ESPN, who are in favor of keeping the extra innings rule and even expanding it into the playoffs.

                            F-ck those people.

                            It sounds like MLB told them what to say.

                                Probably the streakiest. They lost their first three series after moving to Minnesota (1965, 1969, 1970), then won their next five (1987 (ALCS/WS), 1991 (ALCS/WS), 2002 (ALDS)), and have now lost their last 9 (2002 ALCS, 2003 ALDS, 2004 ALDS, 2006 ALDS, 2009, ALDS, 2010 ALDS, 2017 WC, 2019 ALDS, 2020 WC). In their 12 playoff series losses, they failed to win a game 8 times, and won only one game 3 times.

                                Overall, since moving to Minnesota, the Twins are 25-45 (.357). I'm not sure if that is the worst, but I would imagine it is in the bottom quarter.
