Huh? Is it...

May Day occurs on May 1 and refers to several public holidays. In many countries, May Day is synonymous with International Workers' Day, or Labour Day, a day of political demonstrations and celebrations organised by unions, communists, anarchists, socialists, and activist groups. May Day is also a traditional holiday in many cultures. (Wikipedia)?

How about...
Mayday is an emergency code word used internationally as a distress signal in voice procedure radio communications. It derives from the French venez m'aider, meaning 'come help me'. (Wikipedia)

The Twins April record is dismal.

They have played 26 games in the past 30 days.

They have won 9.

Have scored only 80 runs.

They are at the bottom of the Central Division...

AND the American League.

Just barely NOT quite the worst record in Major League Baseball.

Injuries... poor offense... struggling pitching.

Mayday!  Mayday!  Mayday!

(And it has been a seemingly endless winter dreariness.)

Is there any hope in May?
