    Twins - # of wins in 2013

    Assuming no major acquisitions, how many wins do you think that the Twins will have this season?

    Note that all votes will be public, so we can see in October who was correct.

    I think we have a chance at finishing close to .500 We'll see how the rotation does. That will be the biggest factor as we all know.

    Probably should have broken that up into more choices. Given the current roster, I think the 70-79 win option is the obvious choice (though they'll probably be on the low side of that). It will require another complete implosion of the rotation (or a complete failure for the team to stay healthy... again) to not surpass last year's 66 win total, despite what some of the whiners -- I mean -- those of the "negative persuasion" on this forum seem to believe so staunchly.

    I think it'll be a tale of two halves. I think over the first half or so we'll be surprisingly competitive. Something like 38-41 and 6 GB sitting in third place. But then Ryan will trade Willingham, Morneau and maybe even Perkins and the second half will be pretty bad. 32-51 and we'll finish 70-92 and have the 4th worst record again. On the positive side, we end the season with an OF of Benson/Hicks/Arcia and all three look promising for 2014. (And our minor leaguers continue to develop).

    I am thinking about 72. We should be competitive against most teams, will struggle against like the Tampa Bay and others with very good pitching staffs.

    I am thinking low 70's. I'm hoping to be shocked an we end up in the .500 range, but who knows.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    I have a hard time thinking of a number greater than 70. Mauer and Morneau were both pretty healthy last year and Willingham had a career year, even Doumit had a career year, plus the career month the Plouffe had. I would love for Mauer, Morneau, and Plouffe to stay healthy and hit their potential. I would love to Willingham to match his year last year. Will Hicks be able to contribute? Will Dozier bounce back? Will Parmalee hit when he is in the lineup everyday? Will Drew Butera hit over .185? That is a lot of questions on the offense and I didn't even get into the lack of quality starting pitching.

    I'm thinking 72-74 wins. Pitching should be better can't get much worse.

    77 wins. This is what optimism looks like.

    Low 70's , IMO, unless we have some freakish over achieving from a bunch of guys.

    If we follow the pattern of the last two seasons, we go from 63 to 66 to 69.

    I don't think they get to 70 wins, for a few reasons - rotation is still lacking depth. Diamond is due for regression. Pelfrey is a big question mark. I expect Tommy John surgery for somebody important. Potential trades of Morneau and Willingham.

    Pretty much the same as last year. Everybody else is improving too!--especially within the division. I would expect the opponents to pitch-around Willingham more than last year in game situations and that Morneau will see every LHP the opponents have by the 6th inning.

    72 wins is my current prediction. I think 75 is reasonable for people to predict, above that seems more like hope than math to me.

    Yeah, I'm guilty of my share of snark on this forum, but deep down I'm a starry-eyed optimist.

    Ron Gardenhire needs 68 wins to reach 1,000 for his career. If he doesn't reach 68 this year. He won't be around to make it in 2014.

    Gardy will make it this year... Plus 10... 78 is my guess.
