Protecting Their Young. "Looking back on the Twins usage of Santana, one can't help but wonder if the reasons cited by Gardenhire for keeping Santana in the bullpen were genuine. Instead, might the Twins have been determined to protect their young arm that sported those silly strikeout ratios? As well as protecting the young head and heart attached to it? And they did so while still winning two AL Central championships and winning a playoff series the year he wasn't in the rotation." (Twins Geek)
