fourth? They play in the same division as K.C.
They finished in 3rd last year, and the team behind them, the White Sox, have improved, or at least tried to, while the Twins lost their ace.

I'd say 4th place as well, ahead of KC.

Although not very impressive, the Twins finished 79-83. Johan pitched in 33 games and won 15 of them.

I cannot imagine that losing Johan means the end of the Twins. They will find a way to be competitive.

They always seem to bring up new people who make an impact, so I wouldn't count them out. Anything is possible.

But it might take a year or so for them to make the playoffs again.

Much agreed. The Tigers have built an impressive team, and you also have the Indians in the Central.

Oh, the Twins do indeed do a good job of making the most of a limited payroll, but I do not think it's a stretch to think they could drop one place in the standings after losing their ace. He doesn't just win games, he eats up innings and keeps the middle relief from going out there, which is an overlooked thing, I think. Also, he's supposedly amazing in the clubhouse.

And, you lost Torii Hunter.

Who is "you"?

And headache and everyone else has already marginalized Torii.

Rod Carew. Kirby Puckett. Harmon Killebrew. Bombo Rivera.

That does not make them right, nor does it mean his loss helps the Twins.

They need to coax Knoblauch out of retirement/seclusion, maybe grab him when he appears before the Grand Jury or whatnot.
