I'm probably more optimistic about this years team then most people but I think everyone would agree that the 2013 Twins will be the worst team we have for awhile. We have a nice foundation of players to build around, starting this year with Hicks and Gibson.

Several of the teams below the Twins have had major post season success though. It isn't just the losing, it is also the lack of the big payoff. Also, a losing season is very different than a 90+ loss season. But your general point is fair. They used to be good.

I thought Gibson was too high and Hicks and Arcia were too low.
Interested to see where other's have them ranked.

And if they are not competitive in 2014, will you then question the front office? I do mot believe there is any excuse to be this bad this long. You disagree, what makes you so right, and those that feel three awful years is too many?
