The best thing we did for run differential this year was add Willingham, and hopefully will get more out of the M & M boys. But Willingham/Span is not going to be offensively more productive than Cuddyer/Kubel.
I just feel like 80-85 wins is the upside of this team. I hope to hell I'm wrong.

There is almost no way the Tigers will not win the AL Central and the Twins would have to win 90-92 games to win the Wild Card, so making the playoffs is all-but-out of the equation.
Unless 2 of the other division members lose close to 100 games, there is no way that the Twins will not win the division over the Tigers if they have 90-92 wins. Some of those wins would equate to Tigers' losses. Very rare to see 2 90+ win teams in recent history in the same division, unless you also have 2 90+ loss teams in the same division (AL East is the exception). So I think that about 90 wins will win the Central this season. Can the Twins do it? Of course. Remember 1991 Will they do it? We'll see...
