Call me pessimistic, but with most teams getting better this offseason, the Twins have gone backwards. I'm glad we're building for 2015. But I think we will bomb big again a 3rd year in a row. 58 wins. Yes, that's 58-104. We are getting too optimistic, exactly like we did last year.

I love that all the people trumpeting optimism are still picking the team to be probably 15-17 wins from the playoffs......just like the supposedly horrible, puppy-punching pessimists.
The difference between realists (you call them "optimists") and you is that we can see both downside and *gasp* upside. For you, if the Twins arent losing, the world is falling apart.
Feel free to post one of your tedious manifestos in response, but you should also consider doing something more productive. Like punching puppies.

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 agree with this. The ranges are too large. My prediction is 71-91
