Best Minnesota trip in a long time for me, Vikes win, and Twins win (both big time!) in the midst of tonight's ass kicking started talking with the old man about "remember this guy who played for the Twins?" Fun game.

In honor, let's start a "remember that guy" thread for the Twins:

Rules:

-Name a guy who played for the Twins, no duplicates, let's see how far we can go.

-No hall of famers, all stars, retired numbers or legends. That's too easy.

I will start with two:

Juan Castro
Shane Mack


Now go! Let's see how far we can get without a duplicate.

If you want bonus points, list a stat, fact, memory, moment or anything you find on Wikipedia about the guy.

Mike Trombley.

 

Terrible player but I managed to turn him into an 24 game winner in Triple Play 99.

Cesar Tovar. Played all nine positions. When I was a kid I loved the way Bob Casey announced his name.

Chip Hale, GPHoaT (greatest pinch hitter of all-time)

 

652 career plate appearances with all but 37 coming against right-handed pitching.

 

198 of them came as a pinch hitter.

 

(was also my primary pinch hitter on Ken Griffey Jr. baseball on the SNES)

I can't believe Chip Hale was mentioned before I could brag him up.Little lefty I wished I could have been.Then Al Newman was mentioned before me.My son has camped with Al, he is a fun dude to be around.

 

So I guess I will bring up two of my other favorite Twins:Junior and Joe Ortiz.Junior was good, Joe stunk.
