Ladies and gentlemen, here is the Minnesota Twins' 25-man roster for the April 1 opener against Detroit. Please hold your applause until after you see these fellows play for a while. First, the outfielders: Aaron Hicks, Josh Willingham ... Hold on for a second. It's going to get a little rocky filling out the 25-man roster this season. And it will pain me to pencil in several of these names. So don't get all worked up. This is something I do every year, usually around TwinsFest. The bad news, at least this time, is that the annual roster prediction usually winds up being remarkably accurate. Fantastically accurate, in fact....
