    A little kiss blown to the older fans, at the end: "now that's some Sweet Music".

    Is that really them singing? They aren't lip syncing?

    Both, I think. Lip synching to themselves for the camera.

    The starting pitching is still keeping me from really being excited about the Twins.

    I hope you are at least enjoying the Twins.

    I'm much more optimistic than I was. This is, of course, why I argued they should sign legitimately good to great players in the offseason, because you just never know.
    Lighten up Francis....

    So by my count, we have 13 people excited? That's great!!

    I am skeptical...but excited to be skeptical rather than just having that hopeless feeling. I think the real question is - how long can this team stay relevant? Mid-May? Into June? Dare I say the Allstar break?

    We all like to pick out the Twins weaknesses, but every team has them. Heck, Detroit would love to have Florimon playing SS....if only there offense would kick in. We would kill for Detroit's pitching...if we could keep our offense. Bottom line is that every team in the AL Central has flaws. You think Detroit wouldn't trade bullpens? Is there any reason to pitch to Cabrera this year? I don't see a Fielder like threat waiting in the wings.

    I'm most excited by whom the production is coming from. Plouffe, Dozier, Colabello, and Pinto are all hitters who could be considered pieces of the next wave. That's without factoring Arcia, and what's looking like a potential re-emergence of Parmelee in AAA. I'm not expecting them to compete for a pennant, but this could be a rather enjoyable season.

    Excited for the #2 offense in the league to add a couple legit threats to the lineup soon, with Arcia and Willingham coming within the next week or so, I'd assume.

    Hope they bring Nunez with them and send Escobar, Herrman, and Burton down. I'd like to keep Herrman up so that Gardy will not be afraid to use Pinto, but hopefully the way Pinto has performed will force Gardy to face his biggest fear! ONLY TWO CATCHERS ON 1 ROSTER!
    As Mike Tice would say "Calm down".

    After the way this season has started out, I'm sure Ryan is asking himself "why did I spend all that money on free agents?" The starting pitching is terrible, except for Gibson, and the beer league offense is raking.

    Bingo, Mike. How excited would we really be.....and how good would this team look right now with the addition of some combination (pick 2) of Drew, Bonifacio, Sizemore and Abreu also on the roster? And Ervin Santana in the rotation at 3/$36M instead of Pelfrey?

    Imagine if we'd signed Garza and Kazmir instead of Nolasco and Hughes...

    So we have "the glass is half full and rising", "at least the glass is half full" and "well, the glass isn't cracked like I thought but it ought to be really really full".

    Triple quadruple like. It must be a lot easier to lip-synch when you have a quarter-pound of mustache covering the bottom part of your face.

    I guess you should be cured of this by now.

    HEY! THOSE GUYS ARE ALMOST HEALTHY NOW!

    I don't appreciate the antagonizing!

    Just wait until we knock off Cy-Lander and have a chance to tie or take the lead in the top of the 9th!

    Are we still the #2 Offense, or have we went to like #15 offense and bumped our pitching from #29 to #26?
