    Not hearing much chatter to the north of central Iowa. Curious how the new front office will handle this off season. I just hope we don't go after a starting pitcher with a lot of tread on the tires and hope he turns into an ace.

    Here's to not losing 100 games next season!

    shaking up the front office. going to use more of a money-ball approach to trades this offseason.

    Internet rumors of a Dozier to the Dodgers trade being imminent. Probably wont' pan out though.

    Thank you for bringing up my lowly Twins after last night's game. Do you wanna kick my dog too?

    Lack of Twins activity in the Rule 5 draft either taking or losing players. Guessing not a lot of talent other teams are wanting to take a chance on from outside the Twins 40-man roster, think they lost only one player. They only selected one (they had the first choice) , via pick and trade to try and find a rotation guy from the minors. They have to keep him on the 25 man all year or lose him back. Actually has good minor league stats.

    Trust me. I'm a Cyclones/Vikings/Twins fan. I've learned not to put my happiness of life into sports.

    Alright fellas....might be the last post I can say we're tied for 1st place!



    I've heard little to nothing on the offseason of the Twins. Don't know if that's good or bad.... probably bad.

    From my office I can see a sign that says the AB&C ramps are already full. If that doesn't foreshadow a great season, I don't know what does.

    I think a realistic goal to shoot for would be 70-75 wins. I can live with that. Anything better is gravy.

    12 pitches, one walk, three fly outs.

    I think it's safe to pencil in Santana as a Cy Young front-runner.

    With little change to the pitching staff, it will probably be another long year. I just hope to see improvemet with the young guys, especially Buxton, and hopefully Berrios down the road.

    0.00 ERA. His credentials are impeccable.

    Just remember, if the Twins even start out 1-8 this year they're ahead of last year.
