My self-imposed silence is over. No excuses or even explanations. Only one comment about what has contributed to my failure to post for months: the Twins have not been very inspiring the last three years. And last year in particular was quite discouraging.
In my silent period, however, I did recognize finally that my interest in the Twins remains high, even if my optimism for 2014 is greatly tempered. Thus I will be posting again as a means of working out my thoughts about the Twins and what they are doing to return to competitive status, at least in the division.
