The Minnesota Twins are a halfway decent team in 2014. After three straight 90-loss seasons, that’ll do nicely for progress.

But who knows? Maybe halfway decent isn’t Minnesota’s ceiling in 2014. Perhaps the Twins can be better than that. Perhaps they can even be good enough to make some noise in an AL Central division that’s widely viewed as the playground of the Detroit Tigers.

Perhaps indeed. But the Twins are going to need a few things. What they have now doesn’t look like enough.

MLB Lead Writer Zachary D. Rymer is here with some thoughts on that. In his mind, the Twins’ list of needs starts with more power from their most expensive player, continues with more production from their outfield and ends with their perpetually struggling starting rotation.
