You could have included Craig Monroe and Ron Jackson!

And Tony Batista and Juan Castro--oops wrong country....

I'd go with Darrell Jackson (1978-82) over Mike Lincoln. Lincoln's time with the Twins was brief and his numbers were worse than Jackson's over that time.

I'd wedge all-time bust Adam Johnson towards the bottom. We always need a reminder how a top pick can still go bad.

The list isn't overly impressive, maybe someday Travis Harrison will top it.

We'll need two Harrisons.

Really - Lew Ford over Disco Dan Ford ('75-'78)? I don't think so. Did Lew ever hit 20 homers or drive in 80 as a Twin. I'd have cheated with Walter Johnson, he is a part of the franchise (although not a Twin) and his WAR is off the charts.

Delmon Young might not have shared a name, but he "spoke softly and flung a big stick"
Mastermind of the "Free Bert" sign.
