At the risk of starting yet another May/Meyer debate (which is absolutely not my intention), I was thinking about what the Twins could have closed the season with had Buxton and Sano not gotten hurt. This is what the lineup and pitching staff could have looked like this September.
Escobar, Nunez, Hicks, Parmelee also mixing in
Rotation: Hughes, Gibson, Nolasco, Milone, May
Pen: Perkins, Fein, Meyer, Pressly, Tonkin, Swarzak, Deduno, Duensing, Theilbar
This would be a fun team to watch and actually have the chance to be somewhat competitive, and you could squint and think that, even with a somewhat weak rotation, they could go into next year with a shot to be a fringe contender.
Buxton and Sano going down probably set the franchise back a year.
