DISCUSSION QUESTION OF THE WEEK - 2005 TWINS PREDICTIONS
Good morning! I am still in Florida.
After reading the words of our first guest columnist, Rita Maloney, today you will have suffer through my writing again. But worry not! Tomorrow, through Friday, you will get to read the thoughts of three new guest columnists. So, thank you again for stopping by the site and putting up with reading my writing.

Today, I will be posting my thoughts on the 2005 season. Please head over to Stick and Ball Guy's site today. He has invited me to be a part of his 2005 SBG Twins Blogger Contest.

DISCUSSION QUESTION OF THE WEEK - 2005 Twins Predictions
OK, I am going to get home next weekend and will be really busy getting caught up. So, on Monday, I will be posting my thoughts on the 2005 Minnesota Twins season. I need your help though. I want your thoughts on what the Twins will do in 2005. So, here are some questions to consider, and again, simply e-mail me your answers to the questions or anything else you would like to write about the Twins upcoming season. Use the questions as a starting point. Here were my thoughts going into last season.
How many Wins will the Twins record this year? Where will they place in the division?
Will Johan Santana duplicated his 2004 season?
Which other pitchers will step-it-up in 2005?
Who will disappoint?
Can Joe Mauer stay healthy and, if so, what will he do this year?
What are your predictions for Justin Morneau?
Which hitter will step up?
Who will disappoint?
Who will be the Twins leader in:
Which minor leaguer will have the most impact on the Twins in 2005?
What would you say that X-Factor is for the team?
What storylines are you hoping to read?
Again, I would appreciate your help with this question and Monday's article. Here's how it works. I will post these questions the rest of the week. Please think them over and then send me an e-mail with your answers/response. Then on Monday, your thoughts will be posted on this site. Thanks for your help!
