So, I was wandering the Plaza yesterday after work and was checking out the placards with all the old team rosters, and I noticed Billy Beane on a few teams. I had no idea Mr. Moneyball used to play for the Twins. It got me thinking, how many former Twins players have gone on to become Managers and GM's? Anybody else besides Ron Washington, Ron Gardenhire, Billy Beane, and Tom Kelly?

Don Baylor and Wally Backman too and I am sure a few more. And if you add the Twins' years as Senators there are many more.
