Remember how the Twins offered Lance Lynn $20 million for two years a couple days ago? And Lynn (obviously) rejected that? Well now the Twins offered Lynn a $12 million, one year deal, and Lynn agreed to that.

Lance Lynn is a Twin. LANCE LYNN IS A TWIN!

Lynn is a DEFINITE upgrade to the Twins rotation. He had a 3.43 ERA over 186.1 innings pitched for the Cardinals last year. Over his six year career — entirely for the Cardinals — Lynn has pulled a 3.38 ERA over 977.2 innings pitched. He missed all of 2016 receiving Tommy Johns surgery.

Great signing, but got to say, I called it.
