Season Previews: Minnesota Twins

With Opening Day just a day away, we're finishing up with one of our favorite things in all the world: Season Previews. Four years ago, they began as a semi-serious analysis and ended up as half-assed haiku. We're just gonna go with what we know. Finishing up with our preview of the American League Central, here are the Minnesota Twins.

It's no secret that
BLB loves the hell out
Of Joseph Mauer

And Canadian
... And Joe Nathan... Please
Forgive the bias

Gardenhire won
Manager of the year. Must
Be doin' it right.

We hope Jim Jam will
Mash tater 600 by
The end of the year

Will Pavano and
His glorious 'stache repeat
Last year's awesomeness?

Frankkkkkkie and Blackburn
Duensing and Baker round out
The rotation. Sweet!

Joe Nate is back! Capps
Will share closing duties. Moved
Slowey to the pen.

Morneau's head is fixed,
Valencia is at third
Casilla at short

Welcome to the States
Tsuyoshi Nishioka!
Japan's Batting Champ

Let's get Denarded!
In center, Young in left, with
Cuddyer in right

Won the Central last
Year, but collapsed to New York.
Not this year, my friends.

Target Field will be
FREEZING in October, but
Still hope to be there!
