Pre season Twins predictions......................

83 posts in this topic

Throw em out there and lets all see how stupid or smart we are in 6 months.....

MINE:

The starting outfield will be

Young, Gomez and Span for the Majority of the season........

Cuddy, Gomez, Span, Gardy loves Cuddy. I would still think that Young still gets tons of PT though. I think they will rotate them enough so that all 4 of them see the field equally and of course playing the hot hand when someone has one.

I would like to see Span in there at all times though, we need his approach at the plate in the leadoff spot.

agreed...........Young must show something,he was disapointing last year.Cuddy needs to stay healthy.And Span MUST continue to hit leadoff.......

That is my outfield also Sledneck, I would put Cuddy on the block, see what we get, before his hangnail starts flaring up again.

We need to get it rolling and get back on top the central. Gardy will have the lineup rolling and ready for some action. Looks like there going in the right direction with the players there putting on the field.

1) Cleveland 92 wins

2) Detroit 89 wins

3) Twins 87 wins

Starters are spotty at the beginning.

Bullpen blows up from being over worked.

July 12th Delmon Young gets traded.

Is that what you are looking for? grin

I have the Royals finishing ahead of the Tigers again this season. I don't care how much money they spend on that team, they are spending it on older players and they will have plenty of people sitting on the bench again this season on the DL.

I can see Mauer adding his third batting title...

Morneau in the top three in MVP voting again...

Nathan getting only 38 saves due to the bullpen not getting the game to him...

Gomez spends much of the year in triple-A. Gives him a chance to mature and get all the playing time. As much potential he has, he needs to get his head in the game,or at least understand what will be expected of him, at the plate...

The teams fielding percentage goes back up to where we expect it...

Killer injuries might be someone like Baker, Casilla, or Redmond, Crede is a given...

Fall out of the race with four games left in the season...

Bill Smith named general manager of the year.

Cuddyer bats .289 with 23HR's and 113 RBI. Wins A.L. comeback player of the year.

Or

Cuddyer trips and falls on shoelace while getting off the bus before Twins first game breaking both wrists and nose. Is inactivated for entire 2009 season.

Zep, I sure hope your first prediction on Cuddy is right and not the second one. I like him, and he has a Cannon for an arm.

Do you think we can still trade him with such medical problems, I hope so!

Gomez will NOT be in AAA. He will be the starting CFer for us for at least 130 games I'll bet.

Baker winning 18 is about the only one of those predictions I think has a reasonable chance of coming true. If Baker stays healthy, this will be the year he gets noticed around the league. If the Twins were smart, they would ink him long-term before the season starts.

I think... Gardy will start Cuddyer in right and keep him there until he plays himself to the bench or gets hurt, in either case, Span will take over...

Crede will have a great year at third, 25/100 at the plate...

Liriano will win the Cy Young.

Thats my predictions anyway.

pre-season twins prediction?

I predict they will win more than they lose........ grin

With 4 great outfielders, I don't see Kubel getting playing time ....except as DH. The good part about having so many good ones is they can all get days off, and stay stronger late in the season. I thought they faded bigtime late last year. I think Cuddy will spell Morneau at first now and then also. Gotta keep him fresher also.

My regular season prediction....92 wins. Gonna be a dogfight

(black and blue baseball division), with improvement in several teams.

The Twins will win the division this year.

Mauer, Morneau, and Nathan will be All Stars.

Twins, Indians, White Sox, Royals, and Tigers.

Twins make a trade at the deadline for bullpen help.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
