As the Minnesota Twins open the 2015 Major League Baseball season, fans are hoping that new manager Paul Molitor can turn the team around after four straight seasons of 90 or more losses. Most baseball writers are doubtful and predict another fifth-place finish for the Twins in the American League's Central Division. Whatever optimism there is for the team this season dimmed late last week when pitcher Ervin Santana was suspended for half the season because of performance-enhancing drugs.
While Sioux Falls Argus Leader sports writer Matt Zimmer doesn't expect the Twins to win their division, he does believe fans will have more reasons to watch the team this season than they have over the past few years. Zimmer joined Dakota Midday with his outlook for the Twins' 2015 season.
