A note from the Minnesota Twins RE: starting pitching.

An official statement from the team to their fans.

We understand that the slow pace of free agency, which is perfectly normal and not collusion, no sir, along with the injury sustained by Ervin Santana, has fans concerned about the 2018 rotation.

We’d just like to say to everyone in Twins Territory that now is not the time to panic or be negative, but rather to focus on THESE ADORABLE PUPPIES:

It’s natural to be concerned when someone as vital to our team as Ervin Santana is sidelined until May, but we’re here to tell you that OH MY GOD LOOK AT THIS LITTLE GUY:

We’re coming off a playoff season and really hoping to build on that momentum. Many are saying the best way to do that is to add an arm or two through free agency, and we’d just like to remind you that OOOOOOOHHHHHH:

Paul Molitor and his staff have instilled a next man up mentality in our squad and our young arms are ready to prove themselves. Is it fair to ask if they’re ready to pick up the mantle of a #1 or #2 starter? Our answer to that is LOOK AT THESE GUYS JUST HORSIN’ AROUND DON’T YOU JUST WANNA HUG THEM FOREVER:

In conclusion, we are thrilled that Spring Training is practically here, and if you think we’re worried about being frighteningly ill-prepared to deal with this frankly urgent need for a top-end starter, we’d just like to say that IT’S SNUGGLIN’ TIME:
