Downtown Darrell Brown was the last one bumped from last year's list. Along with Juan Castro and Brent Gates once Berrios, Kintzler, and Jason Castro were added this year.

If anyone wants, I'm going to use this Top 300 as a basis for voting for a Top 10 or Top 20 or Top 50 or whatever voters want to vote for on Twitter... 

 

I'll use this list... with each vote, obviously the top vote-getter will get the spot. If someone gets under 5%, they'll come off the list and be replaced by the next on this list for at least one round. Feedback welcomed.

 

Here's the always fun vote for #1...

I'd divide pitchers from position players, sort by fWAR (or average of fWAR/bWAR/WARP) and call it a day.

 

Too many players with negative WAR in the list.Kubel with his 1.6 fWAR is way way too high

Even Mike Pelfrey is on the top 300. Yikes.

Harmon Killebrew edged out Kirby Puckett in the vote for #1... So now who gets your vote for #2 Twins player of all-time (since 1961, of course). 

 

The three other finalists all remained over 5%, and now we're adding Tony Oliva. Cast your vote.

Don't do Twitter, so there goes a valuable vote, as I'm sure others;)

There aren't 300 top Twins! For sure if you get to Mike Pelfry it's time to stop the list.

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

The vote is a twit vote. Why do it here on TD if we can't participate without becoming a twit?

I choose to do it on Twitter because we seem to get a lot more votes and responses that way. I like to keep posting the polls and the results here so that people can discuss the vote and the players mentioned and such. 

 

Also, in my opinion, Twitter if the greatest invention - other than the internet in general - of my lifetime... (potentially a slight exaggeration...)

For those interested, you can vote for #4 on the Twins all-time list now on Twitter... 

 

 

Starting to need some suggestions soon for who to add.
