OnWis97 Posted February 19, 2010 Share Posted February 19, 2010 The Twins could be interesting this year. Offensively, they should be solid: Mauer, Morneau, Cuddyer, Kubel, Span, Hudson. If Hardy can come back and/or Young can be part of what he's supposed to (with Thome sharing in DHing), they should be formidable. Only 3B is weak, but Punto can play the position as well as anyone (while hitting .200).The starting pitching will not be spectacular, but could be solid. Baker, Slowey and Blackburn should be solid. Liriano is a wild card. I've kind of given up but I know he's gettin' it done down in winter ball.Ironically, for the Twins, the 'Pen is not very strong. The middle relief is not what it was a few years ago and I have to admit, I am very worried about Joe Nathan. He faltered down the stretch last year. But if he can stay true to form, the pen should be at least average in the AL.I could see the Twins winning the division and, as Tank alludes to, actually making some noise in the post season.
