Let's Remember Some Twins

Deadspin is terrible now, but it used to be somebody. The old, good Deadspin ran a segment called Let’s Remember Some Guys, wherein they would open a pack of old baseball cards and remember some guys. Like Steve Jeltz. Steve Jeltz!

Since everything is objectively terrible, and we are sorely lacking in dumb sporting events to distract from how objectively terrible everything is, I’m going to remember some Minnesota Twins off the top of my head. They are not ranked in order of preference or ability or grit or hustle or WAR. They are listed in the order I remembered them after three beers while sirens wailed in the St. Paul night. I hope this helps you in some way, because it sort of helped me.

Good Old What's His Name

Wait, Wait, It's Right On The Tip Of My Tongue

Whatchamahoozy

 

Those are the three players who come to mind right now. One of them played center, didn't he? Unless it was short.

Tony Batista

Craig Monroe

 

 

PS God I miss Deadspin. 

 

Oh, sure, I'll play.

 

Joe "Emory Board" Niekro

 

Doug Mientkwzrzchzwskch (I refuse to look up the proper spelling, but everyone knows who I mean and remembers his glove work)

 

Jose Morales, pinch-hitter extraordinaire.

 

Chip Hale, pinch-hitter extraordinaire, part 2.

 

Butch Wynegar

 

Mike Cubbage

 

Shannon Stewart...saved a season...what a great trade that turned out to be.

 

Bobby Kielty

 

Don Baylor

 

Christian Guzman.Never became as good as we hoped he would be, but boy it was fun to watch him run when he hit one into the gap.

Nice to see the U's 1979 Student Body President Runner Up getting mention. Let's throw Ron Washington into the mix.
