    If the Twins can play on grass at home, stay healthy in general and pitching in particular, and prove that they weren't merely beneficiaries of Domeball, they may well win 100 games.

    Otherwise, they'll struggle to make .500 season out of it.

    Y'all need Baker and Slowey to step it up big time to reach that goal.

    Is Liriano still all sixes and sevens?

    Slowey was on track to win 20 before he got hurt. Baker is good enough to pull it off. Blackburn proved he's a very capable #3. Liriano better learn that he can't just blow people away anymore, or he'll go the way of Scott Erickson.

    Mauer and Crede stay healthy, the defense stays as steady as usual, and the offense figures out what to do with runners on base and it could be a great year.

    Wins are an awful stat to judge a pitcher by. I know Slowey doesn't walk anybody but he's going to have to do better than a 1.4 WHIP and an ERA a kiss below 5 like he posted last before he is a legit #2 in this league.

    Y'all will win a lot of games because of the division you are in but with that rotation I doubt there is a deep playoff run in the Twins' future.

    Interested in Beckett + prospects for Morneau? We got a bunch of noodle bats in my stable.

    I agree on Slowey, but I have a feeling he is going to have a good year this year...somewhere in the 3.7-4.10 era range.

    The MnM brothers tho are such a sick combo tho...god i wish I had Mauer

    (For now): Just who I think is going to win everything.

    AL East:
    Red Sox

    AL Central:
    Tigers

    AL West:
    Angels

    Wild Card:
    Yankees

    NL East:
    Philly

    NL Central:
    Cardinals

    NL West:
    Dodgers

    Wild Card: Marlins

    Red Sox over Angels in a rematch.
    Yankees over Tigers.

    Red Sox over the Yankees.

    Then on the NL Side:

    Dodgers over Philly
    Marlins over the Cards.

    Dodgers over the Marlins.

    WS: Red Sox vs Dodgers, Red Sox win in 6.

    He was already having a good year last year.

    Run support and great defense will do that for a guy.

    I think the Angels are going to plummet this season ... expect Seattle to take the West.

    And I know that we are Red Sox fans, Dogbert, but unless the Sox get the bat we all want and need in July or the Yankees get crushed with the injury bug I don't see how we take the division this season.

    In the playoffs all bets are off because of our superior rotation.
