Another reason it stinks to be a Twins fan

Harmon Killebrew and Kirby Pucket are dead. Brian Harper was our last solid catcher, and Bert Blyleven has dropped the F bomb on live TV. Can live as a Twins fan get any worse?

According to the WSJ, yes it can. In an article about the strike zone:

While umpires’ individual tendencies vary, some teams end up benefiting from blown calls more than others. The Milwaukee Brewers have benefited from 55.3% of the incorrect ball-strike calls in their games this year, an MLB high. (It hasn’t helped much: The Brewers are buried in fourth place.) The Minnesota Twins have benefited from an MLB-low 44.3% of such calls.
