79 and 83
despite their 3-2 opening day victory, i just can't see my beloved twins getting past 80 wins with the current starting rotation. though i'm usually much more optimistic, i'm gonna call it at 79 this year, with high hopes for the 2009 season. i mean, we lost our number 1 (santana), 2 (garza), and 3 (silva) starters.
that said, how can you not love the twins? we've got a fine new slugger, a cozy li'l downtown ballpark under construction, and a sidearmin' local-boy vegan blogger, who clearly knows his place in the local boy baseball firmament.
