Minnesota Twins, 2017 edition

Well, I suppose we should take a little look at the Twins chances in the coming campaign. It’s been difficult for me to muster much enthusiasm for this, after the utter carnage of last year’s collapse. Ugh.

But it’s spring, the time of new beginnings and fresh starts. Out with the detritus of last year’s “efforts.” Who can even remember last year? That was then and this is now, and everybody starts at zero and works from there.

The Twins ownership overhauled their Brain Trust in the off season. AND we’ve added a pitch-framing catcher.

And we’ve sent our top spring hitter down to AAA.

This does not exactly inspire confidence in their decision-making ability.

Their pitching is still something of a mess. Mauer is still at first base. Plouffe is gone. Dozier is still here, but I don’t think he’ll be here long.

Hmmm. 59 wins last season.

Pitch-framing catcher.

Buxton. Sano.

I’m thinking 82-82 this year. I am a glass-half-full guy.

Good luck to you Twins! Let’s play some ball!
