Excellent work. I laughed as well, though it was tenuous laughter as this veered a little too close to the truth at times.

I think we'll probably need a sense of humor to get through 2013.

But one never knows. Look at Vikings this year. Everyone thought they'd be bad. I can't tell you how many people told me in August that they looked at the schedule and couldn't see anything better than a 4-12 finish. Yet here they are in a win-and-they're-in situation next Sunday.

I have to admit that I laughed at this one. 2013 probably won't be kind to the Twins, but hopefully we start to see some of the new guys start to come up and give us hope for 2014. Well done on the list.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

Good posting. I first read the headline and rolled my eyes thinking this would be a serious topic.

Well written. But I won't be surprised if the Twins lose 100 games.
