    I voted 70-79,but I have a feeling that if they get off to a good start, that they will be there at the end, because there will be some trades. The poll said as constructed.

    I set this up so that people's votes would be displayed, but somehow that feature does not seem to be working. Thanks to all who voted and posted, and I hope that the high numbers are rewarded.

    76 to 86.
    (but really, I'd love to see the SPs in ST and who made the cut in the OF and IF before I can have a solid guess )

    I said on a radio show earlier this week that 75 wins would be a good goal. In my mind ,that would be a pretty solid showing for this team. I'd expect 68-72.

    I voted 70-79 because it is in the middle of 50 and 100

    If Gibson Mauer and the CF sport produce more then expected we should be competitive and at this point of the year I can't worry about anything else. 80-89 possible World Series champions.

    I think they make it to 80, probably on the last day of the season.

    Call me pessimistic, but with most teams getting better this offseason, the Twins have gone backwards. I'm glad we're building for 2015. But I think we will bomb big again a 3rd year in a row. 58 wins. Yes, that's 58-104. We are getting too optimistic, exactly like we did last year.

    I love that all the people trumpeting optimism are still picking the team to be probably 15-17 wins from the playoffs......just like the supposedly horrible, puppy-punching pessimists.

    Heh.

    The difference between realists (you call them "optimists") and you is that we can see both downside and *gasp* upside. For you, if the Twins arent losing, the world is falling apart.

    Feel free to post one of your tedious manifestos in response, but you should also consider doing something more productive. Like punching puppies.

    Please put me down for 69. And I feel that is somewhat optimistic considering the available starters. On the other hand, if everything comes together perfectly, I would love to see 85+ wins.

    I plan to post another poll after ST so we can all guess again.

    I agree with this. The ranges are too large. My prediction is 71-91
