This is my first effort and it will not be long. What a difference a year makes. Last off season we couldn't wait for the year to begin. Most of us viewed the roster to be solid and the pitching to be ok. We mostly thought that the pitching coaching staff could piece together a good bullpen with the additions that were made. We know how that went. We had fun spending money on the players we thought would make us contenders on the Twins Daily work sheet. Expectation was high that this could be the year we won a playoff series if not more. This off season we face a lot of questions about next years roster. the CBA needs to be worked out so the FO knows what rules they have to go by to fill out a roster that can compete next year. WE have several players that need to evaluated and determine to keep, offer, or trade. Anyway this off season is a lot different than last season but still gives us plenty to talk and write about. thank you for this forum.
