To end the Twins’ postseason misery

The biggest disappointment in 2019 was that the Twins didn’t get past their 16-year stretch without a playoff victory. As they were essentially laughed out of the postseason by the Yankees, the ghosts of playoff past put a beating on the Twins and gave everyone a bad taste in their mouth.

But 2019 was a year of progress and although the team looks rough right now, a lot of those key pieces are back in 2020. If the Twins can find a little more health and be more aggressive with their moves, there’s no reason that this team shouldn’t contend for another division title and even possibly advance to the American League Championship Series (assuming they don’t run into the Yankees again, who got even better by adding Gerrit Cole).
