    Let the Stadium Wars Begin - A look at the coming battle over public financing for a baseball-only park, and an immodest proposal.

    Years from now, 1996 may be remembered by Twins fans as the calm between storms. The labor tussles that shortened the past two seasons appear at last to be over, but by the time the final pitch is thrown in '96, we'll be deep into stadium tussles. ...

    The Year of Living Dangerously, Part III - The '96 Twins should win a few, lose (more than) a few, and put up higher scores than the Vikings along the way.

    Whatever else they may turn out to be, the 1996 Twins won't be predictable. Tom Kelly can't know who will be the ace of his starting rotation or the closer in his bullpen six or eight weeks from now--or for that matter, who will be at first, third,...
