Where is This Team Headed?

After dropping 2 of 3 to Baltimore at home, the Twins were swept in a 4 game set in Chicago, capped by today's come-from-ahead 7-5 loss. The question is: Where do they go from here?

Literally, the local squad heads to Cleveland with their 31-33 record for 3 against the Tribe. But, figuratively they look to be headed for a long season. Currently the starting rotation is in shambles and the once formidable bullpen is even worse.

Then there's the off-season acquisitions that were supposed to bolster the offense. None of them (Delmon Young, Mike Lamb or Brendan Harris) are getting done. Young and Lamb aren't even close.

I think this is going to be a long summer for the Twins, and with all of the positive press the Vikings are getting we may be getting far more training camp updates than even the most hardcore NFL fans can handle.

I hope I am wrong, but am I?
