At 23 years old he pitched in the 1977 All Star Game during a season in which he was 20-5 with a 2.34 ERA. He also pitched in the 1979 World Series. Both times representing the Pittsburgh Pirates.  

He didn't pitch for the Twins until he was 36 in 1990.  In 33 relief appearances and one start for Minnesota he was 7-3 with a 3.39 ERA.  On July 27, 1990 he was traded by the Minnesota Twins to the Toronto Blue Jays for Nelson Liriano and Pedro Munoz.

How about the 1988 American League Earned Run Average Leader ALLAN ANDERSON?

If I remember correctly he declined to make his last start of the season so he could preserve that title.

TK must have giving him the option of doing that and he took it.

 

Kind of the opposite of Ted Williams in 1941 who was hitting an even .400 entering the final day of the season. Given the option of sitting out a doubleheader on the last day to preserve the .400, Ted  insisted on playing and went 6 for 8 to raise his average to .406

I know some of them are already on the board but "piranhas" were a lot of fun.

Midre Cummings -

 

May 10, 2000, a game forever etched in my memory, I remember listening to the radio in bed (it was a school night and way past my bedtime) as the Twins came back against Cleveland from an 8-1 deficit. Scored 6 runs in the 7th, and then with two outs in the bottom of the 9th, Midre hit a 2-run walk-off homer. I think it may be the moment I became a true Twins fan. For me that is one of my favorite moments in baseball. During that season, even though they lost 90+ games, I remember being convinced that 2001 would be their turn around year. I think most people laughed at me.

 

I wish I could get a clip of John Gordon's call for that one...
