The Hold Steady's Craig Finn is optimistic about the 2015 Twins, and Kent Hrbek agrees

Kent Hrbek and Craig Finn are optimistic about Twins

The Hold Steady's Craig Finn is about as big of a Twins fan as they come. He's written an entire song about the team, after all. So when he talks baseball, it's always a must-read for Minnesota faithful.

Finn spoke with Rolling Stone, looking ahead to the Twins' 2015 season:

People who know about prospects speak very highly of them, and you're just waiting on them. … It will be a fun year; I have faith they'll win more games than they did last year."
