It’s April 16, 2018. The Twins own a 7-4 record. The front office has added free agents at several key positions to complement an 85-win team from the previous year that earned its first post-season berth in seven years.

Community Blog Post
I posted this idea in a discussion thread, but I do think it fits better in the blog section or in its own thread, but chose blog. I will leave the scenario as I posted it in the other thread.

Santana owns a 7-2 record with a 1.80 ERA in ten starts. In 70.0 innings, he has allow...

The Twins begin a six game road trip in Texas tonight. I want to get my hasty thoughts down for the upcoming week.
