Never really blogged before much but figured I'd start because I have a ton of stuff to say about sports and never get tired of talking about it.
The Minnesota Twins - Can't wait for the season to begin!! This year is interesting because outside of the big pick-up Joe Crede we are really almost the same team as last year. The only difference is now the Twins are getting the respect they've deserved all along. Last year we were put at the bottom of the central division by many sports writers and the writers that didn't put the Twins at the bottom had them in 4th only in front of the lowly Royals.
Our young pitching staff is still fairly inexperienced but showed last year that they have a massive amount of talent and can compete with the best. My only concerns for this season are:
1) Can the young pitchers repeat the success they had last year?
2) Can Franny come back to form and show his dominant stuff again?
3) Will Denard have a soph slump or prove that he is as good as we all saw last year?
4) Will the rest of the central be a tremendous flop as they were last year or will the Tigers and Indians actually be as good as paper suggests they should be?
Looking forward to it! For now, it's watching the WBC and spring training. Hopefully some of the March Madness for basketball will take away some of the anticipation woes as well!
