Because Lopez isn't their closer. Their closer, Brandon Lyon, is on the DL. Lopez was brought in to face two lefties. Now Bruney, who has been closing with Lyon out, is coming in for the final out.

That would be a 4.5 game lead my friend.

I'll see everyone at the *official* Cruz Jr. is clutch post-game thread!

I think that psychologically that would be a disaster-in-waiting. I am very satisfied keeping the Twins 3-5 games back- it will keep us sharp and keep us hungry.

I would love nothing more than to see the Twins be the first time in a long time to win 100 games and not win the division/pennant (I recall the 1954 Yankees doing that. Don't know if it has been done since...)

The 1993 Giants won 103 games and missed the playoffs because the Braves won 104. There was no wildcard yet, either.

kojak
06-10-2005, 12:45 AM
...and that got me to wondering just how many times has it happened that a team won 100 and failed to win the division or pennant:

1909 Cubs 104-49 6.5 Games Behind Pirates*
1915 Tigers 100-54 3 GB Red Sox*
1942 Dodgers 104-50 2 GB Cardinals*
1954 Yankees 103-51 8 GB Indians
1961 Tigers 101-61 8 GB Yankees*
1962 Dodgers 102-63 Lost 3 game playoff to SF
1980 Orioles 100-62 3 GB Yankees
1993 Giants 103-59 1 GB Braves
2001 A's 102-60 Wildcard 14 GB Mariners

*went on to win World Series
