The Twins' success will once again depend on the health of the "M&M" boys

Aside from the White Sox signing Adam Dunn, the Tigers signing Victor Martinez and the Twins acquiring Tsuyoshi Nishioka from Japan, the AL Central has been pretty quiet this offseason.

Unless, of course, you consider the fact that Miguel Cabrera once again found solace at the bottom of a bottle.

Even that being the case, it doesn't appear to have affected the way he plays, as he is having a great spring training with the Tigers.

None of the five teams have a clear-cut advantage as far as starting pitching goes. Other than a few aces, the AL central is overwhelmed with mediocrity in their teams' starting rotations.
