    Twins outlook

    Twins: Five things to know - MLB - CBSSports.com Baseball



    I'm liking the sound of a healthy Cuddyer and hopefully Crede. I think besides the Royas and Indians, the division is wide open.

    Re: Twins outlook

    I'm ready for Twins to get started, although am disappointed we made it through another offseason with no big acquisitions. I'd like to see them close out the Metrodome in style in the World Series.

    AT least they didn't dump Morneau, Nathan, Mauer, or any of the strong role players.

    That's true. I love that Twins bring players through their strong farm system and stick with them, but they never make the big moves they need to get it done. I agreed with Santana's frustrations before he left, "Every year they say we are building for the future. When does the future get here?" It has to be frustrating for the guys who have been there a long time. I'm hoping with the kids taking over ownership that will change a little.

    Re: Twins outlook

    Any feelings on with Cuddyer back, where does Denard Span and Carlos Gomez fit in? I think Span is better than Gomez, personally. Does DY still play left?

    I like Gomez's speed, but Span hits better.

    They both flash some sweet leather. I honestly would rather have the outfield as it was at the end of the season. Not sure where to put Cuddy.

    I think you simply have to have Cuddyer OR Kubel in right field and the other one DH. The team needs that hitting boost over a faster defensive man. You can still have faster guys in center and left.

    I think the Twins are close, very close... They need another arm or two, be nice to have Matt Garza back...

    They've been close numerous times, just won't make the big move.

    I saw he was selected to replace Nathan on team USA. That's got to be a pretty big honor. Will he be the closer for the squad?

    I guess, right now, Hawkins or Putz is the 'closer' but the manager said that can change at any time.
