    Twins, Target Field, World Champs

    I can not wait to see a game at Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. It's about time we get out of that stupid bubble and play baseball the way it was meant to be played. Yes, games early in the season might be miserable, but come June there will be no better place to see a baseball game.
    This off season has made me proud to be a Twins fan. Pulling in Thome and Hudson was huge. If our starting pitching remains healthy and plays anywhere close to consistent, we are going to be one heck of a tough team to beat. World Series...???

    Compared to the temps we've had the last couple months. I'd gladly go to a game when its in the 40s.


    I think the Twins go deep this year. They have the depth to allow for injuries.

    I'm not even a Twins fan and I'm excited to watch games at the new stadium. As far as the team goes, they could have a good season. It seems like they always do.

    Not being in the dome might hurt them more than you think. That was a tremendous home field advantage, despite being a depressing facility.
    If the team gets mediocre and plays sub .500 ball, new ballpark or not, that place would be tough to fill in April, May, and Sept.

    That's actually a good point. They were always the type of team that could exploit what the turf gave them, i.e. speed, contact hitting, good fielding.

    It was a huge advantage for their under-talented teams. I don't think this team is under-talented.

    I hope the twinkie fans are singing the same tune when it's raining.....fan base isn't used to rain delays and rain outs.

    Fans here in Minneapolis are as fanatic about the Twins than we are about ISU. Regardless of the weather, people will flock in droves to see this team.

    For me personally, I can't wait to be in that atmosphere when the new stadium is open for business. It's facilities and design are top-notch and it's location is dreamy, with it being right down town.

    Go Twins!

    That, and mosquitos...

    Many years ago I was in the dome for a Twins game when a severe thunderstorm moved through. The roof started moving around a little bit and they cranked up fans to increase the pressure, but the game went on...

    I'd say that's a pretty good assessment.
