"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball." That's a line from "Field of Dreams." And, with another baseball season starting, it's a line that applies to the Twins. The one constant through all the years since 1991 has been that the Twins come up short. They came up way short last season, losing 99 games. They won't come up that short this season. While these Twins aren't likely to go from worst to first, as the 1991 World Series team did after a last-place finish in 1990, this 2012 edition will keep fans both interested and intrigued. You've got to admit it will be interesting and intriguing to see ... How Chris Parmelee plays at first base. And whether Joe Mauer can bounce back from a difficult 2011 season and vie for another batting title. And if Justin Morneau can play the entire season without having to deal with concussion-related issues. And how much time Ben Revere plays in the outfield. And how Josh Willingham plays in left field. And how the starting rotation performs. And whether Matt Capps can hold down the closer's role for the entire season. And, well, the one constant through all the years is the Twins will give you something to think about and talk about.
