A few weeks ago, the predictions and hopes were given, and the gauntlet was then dropped, bobbled, and overthrown past the first baseman into the visiting team's dugout. The Metrodome osmosis seemed to be in effect, with the Twins sweeping the A's and taking 2 from the Yankees. Then there's the road trips, where the Twins get swept clean by Cleveland, Chicago, and Detroit, and also lose one to Kansas City.
In the gauntlet of 21 games, the Twins come out with 8 wins, quite handily predicted by Dave and sbg. Does May look any better? Seattle and Kansas City are beatable (by most teams), but we all know about Chicago, Detroit, Cleveland, and Anaheim... and Texas and Milwaukee are no pushovers. Care to predict May? Right now I might say 4 or 5.
I better quit on the predictions while I am ahead....OK, I say 13-15 in May...I just can't help myself.......
I also have one iron clad prediction: Rondell White will at least double his extra base hit total (he has 1).....
