My prediction is this: In 2016 Aaron Hicks will become the first 30HR/30SB player in the history of the MN Twins.

On the Saturday before Super Sunday... The Core of the sun collapses in the blink of an eye and explodes into a supernova. The commissioner with his last breath cancels the Superbowl. Drew Butera survives.

In 2013 Justin Morneau wins the American League MVP as the Twins win the AL Central, only to be eliminated in a 1 game playoff by the Toronto Blue Jays.
winning the central and losing a 1 game playoff... pretty impressive since only wildcard teams play in the playoff.

In 2017, Woody Harrelson and a group of investors purchase the Twins from the Pohlads. At the time of purchase the reigning manager is Jim Riggleman. He is quickly fired and replaced by Kevin Costner as field manager - Ted Danson, Wesley Snipes, Tim Robbins, John Goodman, John Cusack, and Tom Selleck fill out the coaching staff respectively. Bark's Lounge is one of the investors and I take care of all of them... because when they met... it was Moider!
Assuming the above is fiction. Ron Gardenhire retires as Twins Manager after the 2017 season. At his retirement press conference, his only statement is this: "I am 60 years old and I look like I am 80 - I need some time to spend with my grand kids and save the remainder of my strength to focus on this upcoming Senior League Bowling season." After this statement, Terry Ryan names Drew Butera as his successor. Rick Anderson is retained as Drew's Pitching Coach.
On a another note: Ron Gardenhire is offered and accepts the acting role of "Ben Luckett" in the remake of the movie "Cocoon". Wilford Brimley was the actor who portrayed "Ben Luckett" in the original movie.
