In 2010, the Minnesota Twins' much needed new ballpark will open to the public and start a new era of outdoor baseball in Minnesota. Along with the expectation of consistent sellout crowds, the Minnesota Twins organization will undoubtedly significantly increase its revenues. This will likely continue for an extended period of time if the Twins continue to field competitive teams. That's a big, big, if, especially if the Twins fail to sign Johan Santana, since they've clearly failed to maximize his trade-value this offseason. The Minnesota Twins have received a massive subsidy from the people and Hennepin County, one they will unquestionably significantly profit from. In return, as a âthank youâ to the loyal fans for building the stadium, the team should open up its wallet to retain its current talent. This starts by re-signing Johan Santana. The most important thing about a new ballpark is having a team worth watching when it opens! Please sign this petition to protect YOUR investment in the new ballpark, which starts with re-signing Johan Santana to a long-term deal.
