The twins are not done. They perform well when on the national team*, so I'd say the problem has to be either the system played or their line mate(s). You saw a flash of the old twins in the last few games when the score didn't matter. Not sure, did Torts change the system in those games? Did he tell them to just go out and have fun? Any way, with a good rest this summer and a new coach next fall, chances are the twins bounce back and become 80 point players again.Nuckertuzzi wrote: The challenge is trying figure what version of the Twins will be back next year. Is it Torts' coaching that damaged their game, is it injuries, or is it simply father time catching up to them? Who knows, but if the Twins of this season return next year, I'm all for not being competitive because there's no point. This team is and will be as good as the Twins go and if they are indeed done, we'll just have to accept that reality, choke on their salaries and suck for a few more years to build for the team that comes after their contracts end.
If the Twins we saw the past couple weeks return for a FULL season, then there might be a possibility of retooling the team into a competitive one again.
