Or, he hits well enough to force his way into the lineup.

Can I predict that only one everyday player (Gonzalez) outperforms their spring training OPS.

I was looking at the final triple slash number for spring and I think I’d take every single one of them, other than of course Gonzalez and maybe Cruz

Rosario wasn't good after the midpoint of last season. I have serious doubts he will have a good year.

 

I don't see Kepler improving much.

 

Buxton, Polanco, and maybe Sano will start playing to their potential.

 

Berrios will be lights out over some stretches.

 

Mauer's production is going to drop off a cliff.

Twins Manifesto: Build for .500, hope for more.

I predict...

The Twins will play 162 games this season.

And they'll all matter.

Alas, i'm not going out on the limb and predicting a 163rd game.

(And i remember a friend being very touchy about whether that was the play offs or not, when the Twins lost in the one gamer to the Sox that one year when the coin flip went against them for home field advantage.
He had a bet with a friend the Twins would make the play offs that year, and tried to collect based on the one game "play off", and apparently there was a differing perspective on the whole thing.
I feel kinda responsible for that situation too, as it was my fault my friend followed the Twins, as i'd talked 'em up post contraction days...)
