Minnesota Milfoils

The team started out with three straight American League North championships and won the first ever World Series as well. The team was one of the best teams during the this time but with horrible contracts and aging players, the championship caliber baseball quickly went away. The effects of the early years for the team of over spending for free agents and leaving the minor bare of any talent will really hurt this team for some time to come.

The total percentage of wins for the Milfoils is .496 (562 victories and 572 losses). The most wins in a single season were 101 during season one. The most losses in a season were 100 during season seven.

Suthsc is entering his third season as the general manger of the franchise compiling a 131-193 record for a .404 winning percentage. Suthsc is really in a tough spot, as 99% of the teams problems have come from the team’s previous manager who ran the team into the ground. The fans in Minnesota have been patient so far but how long before they start to turn on Suthsc for not rebuilding this team fast enough.
