Thread: Santana close to a decision

  1. #21
    It is wishful thinking for Bobby Cuellar to teach all minor leaguers to throw a change up. Santana's success and work ethic rubbed off on others when he was here, I imagine those same attributes could help him be a successful coach for our young pitchers.

    A more recent MLBTR post on the subject indicates the Twins haven't made an offer, whereas other teams have offered minor league spots.

    If indeed Santana is "close" to signing with someone, the Twins would be long shots according to this POV. Fortunately, as mentioned elsewhere, the rumor process may have garbled what "close" actually means in his case.

    Why would he do that? I can think of 150 million reasons why he wouldn't do it.

    Not to mention that both the local and national media's guestimation of who the Twins are "close" to has been wildly inaccurate. Pretty sure the Twins have been "close" to signing Arroyo since early November all while the Nolasco and Hughes signings came to light with only previous guesses and assumptions.

    The byline was DEC 29, 2013. Sometimes players sign one-day contracts in order to retire from a specific team.
