Fantasy baseball gods despise the Minnesota Twins

Our 2019 squad doesn’t quite make the grade.

It’s cold. It’s snowy. And rather than shovel my sidewalk and driveway like the responsible homeowner I’m not, I figured I’d mock draft a fantasy baseball team comprised completely of Minnesota Twins. Did I mention I’m bored?

Here’s what the fantasy baseball gods at FantasyPros think of our 2019 ball club.

What the F?

An F. A big fat F. WTF? Now, there are a couple of caveats regarding this super-scientific analysis. Here are the most important takeaways:

  • I was allowed to roster just 24 men. One can only imagine the uptick in draft grade had I been able to add, say, a Zack Granite to the mix.
  • FantasyPros took it upon themselves to slot in players. Hence, Sanó manning first base, Marwin Gonzalez roaming the outfield in favor of Kepler, etc.
  • This is fantasy. Not reality. However, with that in mind, I give the 2019 Minnesota Twins roster a C grade. For the record, I’m generally pleased by the signings of Nelson Cruz, Schoop, Marwin Gonzalez and, yes, even C.J. Cron. But I can’t believe in a team that believes Kyle Gibson is a legit #2.
