10 things you need to know about the Twins' 0-7 start

Four consecutive 90-loss seasons ended last summer when the Twins turned around their fortunes with new Manager Paul Molitor.

And then 2016 came around.

This season's 0-7 record is painful regardless if you are a kid or a pro athlete. The Twins are enjoying an off day but also busy trying to end this franchise-worst start.

Here are a few numbers to lend perspective to the Twins 0-7 record – in a tidy 1-10 format.

1) 1.29 ERA

Starting pitcher Ricky Nolasco owns a 1.29 ERA. Nice because he's been injured and inconsistent for the past two seasons.

2) 2 runs

Two runs. That's the most runs in one inning this season for the Twins.

3) 3 R and 3 K

Three runs and three strikeouts for Twins starter Kyle Gibson in 5 2/3's innings Monday.

4) 4 2B

Four doubles this season for shortstop Eduardo Escobar.

5) 5 games

In the American League Central, the Twins trail division leading Chicago by five games.

6) 6 home contests

Six games remain in this season-opening homestand. Two with Chicago and Milwaukee, and three with the Los Angeles Angels.

7) 7 Ls

Seven. Twins losses or George Costanza's favorite child name.

8) 9.00 ERA

(OK we cheated a little on this one). Eight plus one equals 9.00 which is the ERA of closer Glen Perkins in two innings this season.

9) .091 average

.091. The Twins' batting average with runners in scoring position this season.

10) '10

2010 is the last season an MLB team (Houston) started a season 0-7.
