Twins Finish April at .500

Last night's victory and today's off day means that the Twins will finish April with an even 11-11 record. Here's how that compares to their record through the first month in other years under Ron Gardenhire:
YEAR      W      L      WIN%
2002 16 11 .593
2003 12 14 .462
2004 15 7 .682
2005 15 8 .652
2006 9 15 .375
2007 14 11 .560
2008 13 14 .481
2009 11 11 .500
TOTAL 105 91 .536

Gardenhire's squads have compiled a .536 winning percentage through April compared to a .547 mark overall, which is basically the same (the difference between .536 and .547 is 1.5 wins per 162 games). And sure enough my hope that the Twins would just "tread water" until Joe Mauer returns looks good.
