Twins President Dave St. Peter on the bullpen, Major League Soccer

I’ll have a print Q&A with Twins President Dave St. Peter in Sunday’s Star Tribune, but here are a couple of items from our conversation this morning for you to chew on a little early: Q The Twins made a couple moves early with the Byung Ho Park signing and the Aaron Hicks trade but it’s been quiet lately.

Twins projected by FanGraphs to finish with fewest wins in AL

While many Twins fans are optimistic about 2016 based on last year’s much-improved squad that finished 83-79 and contended for a postseason spot into the final weekend of the season, the crunched numbers suggest we might need to tap the brakes a little on those good feelings. FanGraphs annually lists projections for how teams will finish based on roster construction, schedule, etc. And the news for the Twins isn’t good.
