The Twins are off to a decent start of the 2013 season. If there is reason for hope, it has to be the performance of the starting pitchers. In Spring Training, it appeared that all the starters were struggling. When opening day came, the starters have performed quite well. The three picked up during the off-season (Vance Worley, Mike Pelfrey and Kevin Correia) all have pitched well. For the most part, the bullpen looks pretty good also.
The season’s still young, but if the pitching holds on the Twins may have soemthing to say about the Central Division race. As far as position players go, the big early question mark is Aaron Hicks — he’s off to a rough start. With the exception of Hicks, the first six or seven hitters look good — we’ll see. At least there is a glimmer of hope!
