Yeah. And the Vikes had 6 Pro Bowl players this year too. Most of the great players are not going to be in the WBC, so you get the remaining bums.

The WBC is a terrible distraction. It's detrimental to the Twins.

Might have wanted to include when the games are played and where we could watch them.

With all of these world class players why are the Twins losing 90+ games a year? Why are the twins DOA for 2013. This is a poorly run franchise top to bottom. The root cause is you have an owner who operates on the cheap and has a thick skin. Why did we build Pohlad a new stadium.
