How much difference does a year make? Ask Ervin Santana, who had an awful offseason last year and had to settle for a one-year, $14.1 million deal with the Atlanta Braves. This offseason was much different for Santana, who was signed by the Minnesota Twins for a four-year, roughly $54 million deal today. That would be the largest free agent contract in Twins history, narrowly topping last year’s four-year, $49 million deal with Ricky Nolasco. Santana pitched well in Atlanta last season with a 3.95 ERA and 179/63 K/BB ratio at age 31.
