Uncustomed Heroes of 2014: Twins

Yup. Still never finished posting these damn things. Three more left. Might as well burn 'em off like they're episodes of Celebrity Apprentice.

Phil Hughes had a pretty nice season, considering he hasn't pitched this well since the early part of the decade. He'll probably be relied upon to make a significant effort next year, because Ervin Santana and Ricky Nolasco probably won't be the top starter.

Speaking of people named Santana, this one had a pretty nice rookie season, having nice play in both the outfield and shortstop, and making sure my fantasy team still had a utility guy.

Another Twins rookie, this guy had significant playing time in the Outfield, and looks to be a surefire starter for next season.

Kennys Vargas was a midseason call up that worked into being the regular DH by the end of the season, and having a number of nice clutch home runs. The David Ortiz comparisons are out in full force, and hopefully Vargas will outlive them.

Nothing happier than the sight of a longtime middle-reliever finally getting his chance to close out an All Star game, in his hometown city no less. Glen Perkins had one of the better baseball stories this year. Here's hoping it continues.

Coming Tomorrow (?)- A bunch of White Sox stars.
