First Impressions

That Angels lineup. I’ve heard of these people.

That Twins lineup. I’ve sadly heard of these people.

Go get ‘em, Kennys Vargas.

Aaron Hicks in right field, Eduardo Nunez at short and Danny Santana in center makes total sense. Total sense. Seriously, let’s give Ron Gardenhire a lifetime contract for a gazillion dollars. GAZILLION!
