It’s Twins Fest Time

While the conditions outside certainly belie the idea that spring is looming, TwinsFest is a harbinger of better times and better weather.

It’s easy to be optimistic on the eve of spring training. The Local Nine went extra time last year, losing in a one game playoff against the hated ChiSox. While the Twins have a number of strengths (a deep if not exceptional rotation, cornerstones in Mauer and Morneau, and other useful pieces) the bullpen getting to Joe Nathan is still sketchy. Third base remains a soft spot.

It would be a shame for such a talented cast fall short because of profound weakness at two spots. It shouldn’t be that difficult to find a serviceable 3B, nor should finding an 8th inning bridge be particularly daunting.

Here’s hoping that Bill Smith & Co. find the necessary components to put the ballclub over the top.
