The Past, Present, and Future for Miguel Sanó Photo credit: © David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

On his 27th birthday, let’s review Miguel Sanó’s up-and-down Twins career.

The past:

Keeping Graterol, Acquiring Maeda Should Be the Twins' Goal In a bizarre and frustrating twist, the Red Sox are staunchly refusing to get anything less than Graterol (and more) from the Twins. It just ain’t gonna work with Boston, Falvine.

Derek Falvey and Thad Levine made an offer that Wheeler may have considered had he not been tied so heavily to New Jersey and the National League East.

Why the Reds and Twins Should Talk About Trevor Bauer As I was pondering about the potential rotation for the Twins in 2020, I remembered something. It had been in the back of my mind but it came to the forefront today.

Thad Levine, in an interview with Aaron Gleeman, proclaimed that the Twins explored a trade during the season for Trevor Bauer. I can not remember the exact quote, but it went something like...
