The Twins have already begun finding replacements for Johan Santana and have contacted the agent of Josh Fogg. Fogg, who was 10-9 with a 4.94 ERA, pitched very well for the Rockies, especially in clutch situations. I think he would be an okay addition behind Francisco Liriano, but his high ERA in the National League might get higher in the AL and could hurt the Twins. However, his ability to eat up innings makes him more valuable than other, more expensive free agents. The Twins are surprisingly a very good team to play for. Although you would think the city would turn off some free agents to playing there, they run the team like a family and players that I have talked to really have enjoyed their time there.
