Another year and yet another story for the Minnesota Twins who finished surprisingly 2nd last year in the Al Central with a record of 83-79. This season will hopefully be another step upwards as the Twins eye to overtake the World Series Champion Kansas City Royals as the leader of the AL Central. The Twins come back this year with a very familiar roster that is spearheaded offensively by long time Twin Joe Mauer and Brian Dozier, the power hitting second baseman. The Twins had a very slow and under the radar off season as FA signings were at a bare minimum for the Twinkies. Their off season was highlighted by the FA signing of Korean slugger Byung Ho Park to a 4 year 12 million dollar deal. Park looks to be the everyday day DH for the Twins and the occasional start at 1B to give Mauer days off at 1B. The other big move was the trade of former first round pick OF Aaron Hicks to the Yankees for catcher John Ryan Murphy as the Twins are very low on catching depth in the minors as well as the big league roster behind start Kurt Suzuki. The youth movement will be a every day trend for the Twins this year as many young players will be sprung into everyday roles and leading that front is top CF prospect Bryce Buxton and Sp Jose Berrios. After having a solid spring, Buxton will slide into the every day CF role and lead off for the Twins while Berrios will be the anchor in this Twins rotation that will accompanied by Hughes, Santana, Nolasco and Kyle Gibson. Paul Molitor is confident that Miquel Sano can handle the every day duties as the RF for the Twins as his power bat will be surely needed in the middle of this Twins lineup.

For now the Twins hope they can be over .500 just like 2015 and have the hopes of being even better.

Editor's Note: I have not updated my OS Dynasty since January 2014 and I have played significantly fewer video games since, to my chagrin. However, I have revived my NHL 14 Be a GM, and we begin with a recap of Hendricks' Red Wings tenure, as his contract with the team was not renewed.

Earlier this summer, the Detroit Red Wings announced that they would not renew the contract of General Manager Jeffrey Hendricks. This decision comes after three seasons with the team. In his first, his Wings won the President's Trophy, and eventually, the Stanley Cup. In the second year, he broke Detroit's consecutive playoff streak, as the team fell below .500. In his final year, the team held 3rd in the Atlantic with a month to play, but sputtered late and took a Wild Card team to the Conference Final, losing to the Florida Panthers in 5 after upsetting Carolina and then Philadelphia. Both upsets took 5 games.

Hendricks reported being shocked, yet understanding about the firing. He only reached the wins goal set by his owner in the first season, but sincerely believed that "all was forgiven" by his team's playoff performances when they qualified. He always put his teams in a position to compete, and that is all you can ask a general manager to do. Key deadline acquisitions that fueled the Conference Finals run were Andrew Ladd, Marty Havlat, and Michael Frolik. Ladd finished the regular season with a career high in goals, and Havlat had six assists in two games in the pivotal Eastern Conference Semifinal.

Hendricks is also bummed out because he had concrete plans for Detroit's future in his final season. He acquired Matt Duchene, Sean Couturier, Nick Bonino, Brad Marchand, Jesper Fast, and Braden Holtby while trading away Henrik Zetterberg, Jimmy Howard, other aging stars, picks, and prospects who he thought would never pan out. He had been scheming with regards to Niklas Kronwall, but never got the chance to pull the trigger before his firing.

Nevertheless, he had to let that all go and start the job search. Hendricks' agents expressed his desire for a lengthier contract, even if this meant taking on a rebuilding project. After looking at teams offering four-year deals, he came across Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, New Jersey, and San Jose. All had under-performed in the previous season, regardless of whether or not the roster actually needed a lot of work. Tired of the Eastern Conference, Hendricks opted to head out to San Jose.

We asked him specifically, why San Jose? He says it's a privilege, honor, and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with Pavelski, Couture, and Burns. Any GM would kill to have that be the backbone of their forward lineup. After the Marleau retirement and the Thornton trade before Hendricks arrived, he named Pavelski the captain and Couture and Burns as his two alternates.

Knowing that defense failed him in Detroit, Hendricks hit the ground running and bolstered an already stout defense. He signed Dana Tyrell and Shawn Horcoff, 2 two-way forwards who will bolster those 3rd and 4th lines, even though neither will play their natural position of center.

He re-signed Tomas Hertl, Matt Halischuk (traded to SJ by Hendricks when he was in Detroit), Raffi Torres, and goalie Michael Hutchinson to ensure a respectable amount of continuity. He traded for Drayson Bowman and Johan Franzen. Dealing with Carolina was a frequent occurrence for Hendricks in Detroit, having sent Franzen there two season ago.

San Jose won their first pre-season game on Monday by a score of 6-4 over Phoenix, who won the Pacific Division last spring. Drayson Bowman recorded a hat trick and Franzen tallied 4 assists.

It's Mike here again and today I have chosen on what I will do with my new franchise I will be starting. I was going to post my online franchise that I started with my buddy as we are about 30 games in bout I decided to start a new offline dynasty and franchise with a new team. Every year I am usually the Mariners but I decided to go a different route this year. After a online poll on my blog page, the Minnesota Twins were the heavy favorite. So everyone, I hope you enjoy. I will be posting results on here as well as my blog page.

Spring and summer have come and gone in Lafayette, Louisiana and the Ragin' Cajuns are gearing up for kickoff. New recruits are now freshman in college, adjusting to their new lifestyle. Position battles have been fought and decided and the new playbooks have been implemented. It's time to go to work.

The position everyone had their eye on through spring practice and summer camps was quarterback. With a new sheriff in town and two seniors with similar skill sets vying for the job, it was going to come down to the wire. Brooks Haack, a 6'1", 217 lbs redshirt senior from Katy, TX is the incumbent. Though he was the starter, his numbers were dismal, giving him no right to the job in 2014. The challenger is Jalen Nixon, a 6'2" 218 lbs redshirt senior straight out of Carencro High, just down the road in Lafayette.

With no clear winner following the spring game, the battle raged on throughout the summer. Each quarterback took turns running with the 1s, making his case for the starting job. Finally, in the dog days of August, coach Drake decided enough was enough. By the end of the day, ULL was going to have its field general. Each quarterback was going to take the first team through 20 plays (10 passes, 10 option runs) and whoever had the most success (yardage, TDs) would be the winner. It was a little unorthodox, but Drake was looking to make his statement. He told the two men, "If you want it, go and get it."

First up was the hometown kid, Nixon. He put on a good show, making solid decisions in the option game and dropped a dime deep down the middle for a score, but was hurt by a few balls slightly off target that caused drops. Haack then took the reins and never looked back. He looked like a natural out there, moving from play to play with poise and precision while Nixon showed some nerves. By the end of the contest, it was clear that Brooks Haack would give the Ragin' Cajuns their best shot in 2014 and they began to gear for kickoff against FCS Southeast in Week 1.

We pick up this story in 2013 with coach Joe Drake and the Kent State Golden Flashes. Coach Drake is the offensive coordinator for KSU, under head coach Paul Haynes. The OC position at Kent State was coach Drake's first job at the coordinator level for an FBS school after climbing the ranks at his alma mater, Maine, followed by UConn. The 27-year old was ready for the big time.

Drake brought an aggressive power spread with him to Kent State and with it, he and Paul Haynes would take over the MAC. Based reads and options plays from the pistol and shotgun, Drake's offense uses the run to batter and befuddle opponents before ripping a play action pass down the field for a score. With so many different plays that look alike, by the time the fourth quarter rolls around, defenses can't tell what's coming until it's too late.

Given the keys to the offense, Drake, along with quarterback Colin Reardon and senior halfback Trayion Durham were ready to make their statement. And boy, did they. Reardon seemed to be a natural fit to run the offense. He could keep the ball on a triple option, make a linebacker miss and bulldoze a defensive back for a first down and then drop a 25-yard pass into a receiver's hands on the very next play.

While Reardon gave Drake and Kent State options, the biggest star was the halfback, Durham. Trayion Durham is built like a power back but has the speed and elusiveness to slip out of tackles as well. He became the bellcow for the Golden Flashes, barrelling between the tackles and taking pitches on the outside. It didn't matter where you gave him the ball, he could take it to the house -- and he did so often. With the defense needing to respect all the potential threats of Drake's offense, they could never fully commit themselves to containing Durham and he made them all pay.

Kent State rode the legs of Durham and the arm of Reardon to a ton of success in 2013. The dynamic duo helped bring home a MAC championship to Kent State, but was unable to earn a W in their bowl game. When all was said and done, the Golden Flashes posted an impressive 11-3 record, but the greatest achievement belongs Trayion Durham. Durham became the first player in Kent State history to win the Heisman Trophy. He racked up over 1600 rushing yards on just 211 carries (a YPC of 7.66) and found paydirt 27 times, leading the nation.

All good things must come to an end, though. As the Kent State faithful suspected would happen, their terrific season build on Drake's new offense would attract many suitors from around the country. After being courted by a few programs, coach Drake agreed to terms with the University of Louisiana-Lafayette to become their next head coach in 2014.

Now, the ink is dry and coach Drake is officially a Ragin' Cajun. The offseason for a coach changing jobs is even shorter than normal and coach is already immersed in the never-ending work of a head coach. We'll pick up the story after the preseason as he leads UL Lafayette into his inaugural head coaching season.
