The American League Central certainly isn't going to be easy this season. That is, unless you're the Detroit Tigers, who are heavily favored to win the Division going away in 2013. Yet, with four other teams in the division Detroit isn't just going to be given the trophy now. The Minnesota Twins are considered to be the cellar dweller of the division, but they will certainly make an attempt to best the expert opinions this season.
The Twins will have to replace both Denard Span and Ben Revere to free agency. Both departures will be huge for Minnesota.
Their rotation is just bad with Scott Diamond being the ace and well, that's about it. Lots of question marks regarding the Twins' pitching. Joe Mauer played in nearly 150 games last season and will be seeing time at first base in addition to catching. He's one of the best pure hitters in the game but Justin Morneau hasn't been great lately. Josh Willingham led the team with 35 bombs last season but remember, the Twins won just 66 games last season and that's just not going to get anything done. Minnesota did nothing to improve themselves during the off-season and everyone else in the league (despite the Sox) did. It's going to be a long season for the Twins.
