I'd take a page from the Brits, I'll give it a U for ungraded. They did nothing to significantly improve the roster that was awful entering the offseason. A team that had few quality major leaguers traded one away and may have gotten one in return. My interest level, and I'd imagine the interest level of most people who the Twins would consider their fans, is about zero for the upcoming season. They have quickly become the worst and least interesting sports entity in the area.
They've tried nothing and they're all out of ideas.

B- seems reasonable. It is pretty clear that the offseason was targeting the future and not the present. With a top 5 pick in June and quite possibly one next year, they should be able to add two more high quality college type pieces to that mix as well. The trades were excellent, and though the OF will be defensively weaker this season, by 2014, we will be looking at Hicks/Benson/Arcia which should be a nice upgrade in the field and quite possibly at the plate. Trading Span and Revere was smart, as that 2014 team should be auditioning Meyer and May to go with Gibson and Worley.
I wouldn't be shocked if the 2013 team improves a bit, but I'm not expecting anything more than 70 wins unless Morneau and Mauer suddenly find their old selves, Harden works out, and Deduno figures out how to locate his fastball.
