Major league teams will hold their first workouts on Feb. 14 or 15 ( just 10-11 days from today). A large number of free agents are still unsigned.......a very unusual off season.

Among starting pitchers, Arrieta, Cobb, Darvish, and Lynn are still unsigned.

Spring training starts in a week, and more than a 100 free agents are still unsigned. In addition to the pitchers mentioned, position players like Hosmer, J.D. Martinez, and Moustakas are still FAs.

Again, a very unusual off season.

When the season is underway and in full swing I think we will see,

1b Mauer
2b Dozier
SS Polanco
3b Sano
CF Buxton
LF Rosario
RF Kepler
C Castro
DH Morrison

Rotation

Santana
Berrios
Odorizzi
Gibson
Mejia/Hughes

Not much of a surprise but I dont think Anibal Sanchez is ever really making the rotation after the first month or two.

Anyone else listen to the powertrip this morning when they were talking about Logan Morrison's HR totals? Has routinely been hitting them in the "teens" throughout his career and then exploded for 38 last year. Interesting

Santana is injured. It is possible that he wont be available until at least May.

Well he can't be in your starting rotation if he is unavailable.

You will notice I said when the season is in full swing and even noted that Sanchez will vet starts for the first two months.

I was just holding you to the standard you set for your proposed rotation. And ease up, I am just giving you a hard time.

Is this hard to understand.

Reportedly he developed an uppercut swing to change the launch angle, resulting in more fly balls and homers.

with all the exciting new free agents the Twins have been adding there is a surprising lack of talk on here. Everybody agree with what the Twins are doing? Let's hereit!

Polanco was suspended 80 games today for PEDs. I imagine Escobar will become the primary shortstop.

that means Eric Ayebar will make the team. If Sano is suspended, it could mean a cal up of one of our top Shortstop prospects.

Aybar was a Gold Glove winner with the Angels in 2011....quite a few years ago, but assuming he makes the team, hopefully he will be a defensive plus.

Opening day is tomorrow.

The lineup looks very similar to last season. Key changes are Escobar at SS for the first half of the season and Logan Morrison at DH. I would hope for great production from this lineup.

Starting pitching will be a bit sketchy until Santana gets back from his injury. Lynn, Odrorizzi, Gibson, and Hughes just need to eat innings and minimize the damage. Hopefully Berrios keeps progressing and is the ace we are looking for.

additions were made to the bullpen and hopefully they can be lights out when called upon.

There is a lot of questions headed into the season but we will see how it all plays out.

Odorizzi looked good today! Just what the Dr ordered! Unfortunately, we lost in the 11th. Lets hope we break the pattern, of the last 3 opening days. 2015, Twins swept the series, 2016, Orioles swept the series, 2017, Twins swept the series. If history repeats itself, Were in for a rough series!

Great opening start for Berrios. 3 hit shutout ball for 9 innings. He kind of fell apart at the end giving up two hits but found a way to end the game.

Twins loss 5-4 to fall to 2-2. Dozier had a solo shot to start the 4 fun rally. His 3rd this season.
