Unthinkable? Let Cruz go after 2020? Nelson Cruz has been everything the Twins could have expected for 2019 and 2020.

Cruz has been far and away the best hitter both last year an...

In the course of the 59 years that the Twins have been the Twins, I have always had a favorite player or two every year. Sometimes that...
