Uncustomed Heroes of 2017: Twins
Because I posted so many great Twins stars during the season, I had to scrape the bottom of the barrel to give some impressive ones for this end-of-the-year bit. The Twins outdid their skeptics and manage to end the season with a Wild Card berth, a year after coming in last.
Adalberto Mejía was a charter member of their ragtag rotation, utilizing veterans, young stars, and Bartolo Colon. Mejia might be a Colon in the making- he's big, strong, and has a bloated ERA. He put up promising numbers, though, so the Twins may rely on him for the 2018 season.
Coming Tonight: They didn't wow people, but the youth movement may be bringing something big to the South Side next year.
