It’s safe to say the the Minnesota Twins made a big splash last night with the signing of third baseman Josh Donaldson, a.k.a. “Bringer of Rain”. So how did Twins Territory and the rest of the MLB-o-sphere react to the news?
Reliever Trevor May is no longer going to be making bets on bombas:
Yooooooooo. The homer game in the bullpen AIN'T HAPPENING THIS YEAR.— Trevor “IamTrevorMay” May (@IamTrevorMay) January 15, 2020
I ain't tryna be broke.
Congratulations was in store and a gift of a two-minute clip of Donaldson’s 37 homers last year:

Radio play-by-play man Cory Provus had a pretty good question. So how much extra money will Eddie Rosario make this season?
Does Eddie Rosario part ways with #20? Any thoughts @DWolfsonKSTP?— Cory Provus (@CoryProvus) January 15, 2020
Outfielder Byron Buxton seems pretty happy about the signing.

Catcher Mitch Garver weighs in with a request:

Some of our staff members had some reactions, too. Hayden already has his season prediction in.
