Fanpost Friday: Who would you put in the Twins Hall of Fame: Johan Santana

One of the best pitchers. A relatively short career but was 8 years with the Twins. Also a sad choice as it reminds me of a player the Twins couldn't resign and so traded away for in the end players who did not amount to much for the Twins. (Ironic that Carl Pohlad was inducted in 2008 to the Twins HoF).

A genuine ace and someone you felt confident about when he took the mound. For four years he was 'the' pitcher in baseball.

You can look at his stats here and by what ever measure you choose he is deserving of being in the hall of fame for his short but amazing time at the Twins.
