Will Twins Plummet From First Place To Third?

Just picked up a preseason annual, published on something called "paper." Yes, they still make those. Anyway, they've got the Twins finishing third because they "lost a couple of key pieces."

Which ones, exactly? Just about everyone's back except Orlando Hudson, J.J. Hardy and Jesse Crain. Sure, those guys will be missed. But they weren't exactly All-Stars, and if Justin Morneau's back the Twins should be fine. After all, this is a team that won 94 games with Morneau for just half a season and Joe Nathan for no season at all. Baseball's a funny game and they might finish third, but that seems like a reach.
