Last week I asked you to write a fanpost imagining “what would happen if Bryce Harper and Manny Machado entered the THUNDERDOME.” We got a couple great fictional responses. Both Geomyidae and imakesandwichesforaliving chose to take a humorous tack with their posts, and both were great.

Geomyidae’s response, “Two men enter, no man leaves,” pictured both Machado and Harper finding out the dark truth behind the Twins. Joe Mauer is hidden in the Metro Thunderdome, and Joel Jeff, the true power behind the Twins, has a sinister plan in place for both our new superstars. He might be a bit too close to the truth of why the site has had some writer turnover though.

In imakesandwichesforaliving’s version, “I have a package for Thad Levine and Derek Falvey,” the boy wonders are utterly mystified by the repercussions of signing Bryce Harper, which truly becomes a franchise changing event. Phil Hughes makes a fantastic cameo (apparently he got tired of swapping grilling tips with Kyle Gibson and Glen Perkins,) and Green Bay ends up getting one more over on the long-suffering Twin Cities fans.

Great work from both of you on those stories! Now it’s up to the fans. Read both stories, and then select your favorite. Winner gets epic bragging rights or something like that. After you’ve voted, look for our next fanpost call soon to join in the fun!
