The Twins at least are getting more efficient in their playoff retreats. They didn't even make it to October this time.

The most bizarre season in baseball history ended in the most familiar way possible for the Twins on Wednesday: A meek loss, this time 3-1 to the Astros, and an unceremonious sweep out of the playoffs. Barely 70 hours after celebrating their AL Central championship and reiterating their World Series ambitions, the Twins packed up for an extra-long winter, their offense already seemingly on ice.

"We weren't expecting this, you know?" said a dazed Nelson Cruz. "I don't think anyone was really expecting it to end this way."
