I know it's only 6 games into the season, but when was the last time a Twin lead MLB in home runs?

It's kind of hard not to miss Thome, and to be honest it would be nice to have him work with Parmalee, as I see a lot of young Thome there... I doubt Chris does what Jim did, but having them together would have been nice.
As for willingham, it was the right move. Losing Cuddy hurt from an emotional side of things, but from the business end, it was the right thing to do, and I applaud Ryan for it. I doubt that Willy hits 40 hr, though if the M and M boys are back and Valencia/Parmalee emerge, Willingham will certainly see his fair share of good pitches and could come close to 30 HR. That would be nice.
