The Twins horrid season has removed any interest in just about anything baseball related. Typically around this time of year I anxiously await the announcement of the various MLB awards. This year I just don’t care.
I like Ian’s story. He was set aside by the Yanks in favor of Joba, Phil Hughes and a bunch of hired guns. He quietly headed west and put together a monster season, with a league leading 21 wins (tied with Kershaw).
One thing about his success does pain me a bit. When the Twins traded Johan there were rumors of a trade with the Yanks involving Ian. Man, if only.
