Minnesota Twins: 12 Bold Predictions in '12

Ron Gardenhire is certainly praying for a better go of it in 2012 than in 2011.

For the Minnesota Twins, 2012 couldn't have come soon enough. 

After nearly losing 100 games, depleting the club's reserves at the Triple-A level, and pretty much bottoming out organizationally, the Twins and its brass have been proactive this offseason, at least relative to previous offseasons, adding more key free agents this winter than any in recent memory.

Surely, some of the acquisitions have been widely panned, while others, like the Josh Willingham signing, have almost universally been received positively. 

For '12 to be a successful season, and I'm among few who think the Twins could be pretty good, the club is going to need a lot of things to go right. In today's slideshow, we'll take a peek at a few bold predictions, some of which the club may need to contend, and some of which may be simply icing on the proverbial cake. 

These predictions range from better health for some individuals, to unforeseen contributors, to maybe a special addition near the trade deadline. They won't all be positive either, because after all, no team makes it through a campaign unscathed.
