2014 over/unders: Minnesota Twins
It's time to take a look at some overs and unders yet again. This time, the Minnesota Twins.
Time for another round of team over/unders. What's this, you ask? Here's the explanation:
As part of our preview of the 2014 season to come, let's roll out a few "over/unders" for each team. That is, we'll assign a number to some different categories that, in their own way, will predict one facet of the season ahead. In turn, you, the loyal commenter, will let us know whether you take the "over" or "under" for each category. Stated another way, will the actual figure be higher or lower than the one we've presented? Remember, we're talking 2014 season and 2014 season only.
Today's installment brings us to the Minnesota Twins, who made the playoffs six times from 2002-10, but haven't won more than 66 games since.
