DETROIT — Two full weeks into his Twins career, Chris Gimenez's unsinkable optimism already is on display. Hours before making his first start at first base for his new team, Gimenez expertly parried a Detroit TV question about the surprising Twins being on pace for 130 wins. "I think that might be a record," Gimenez said with a grin. "While 130 wins might not necessarily be realistic, obviously it's a tremendous goal to shoot for. We do feel like we have a group of guys in here that are starting to believe in each other, and that can be a dangerous, dangerous thing."
