Earlier this week, I took a look at the Minnesota Twins' biggest weaknesses heading into the 2013 season. I think most are aware of the recent pitching woes and the struggle this team has endured. There are bright spots, however, and some may even stay bright for years to come.

The Twins' front office isn't officially in rebuilding mode, because it feels it has the players to compete in the here and now. But if the Twins are truly serious about contending, they will need to add more pieces to enhance the pitching staff and defense.

That being said, this is a young and talented team that could surprise a lot of people. Getting back to "Twins baseball" seems to be the focus now, with the Twins prioritizing starting pitching.

If the Twins can build a steady nucleus around their current and future youngsters, we could see a resurgence in Minnesota—and soon.
