Twins Blog: Who Cares About Predictions?

By Peter J. Nelson, WCCO

I do when they look like this.

Sports Illustrated released their MLB 2011 Predictions today and I almost like what I see.

They have the Central right.  They even feel our pain and knew what Twins fans wanted to see in the ALDS.

I have a problem with the ALCS and beyond.  You can maybe guess what my prediction is.  The problem is that I’ve only been right twice in the past 23 years.

Here’s how the pros at SI think the season will shake out.  What do you think?!
