Lindor, Merrifield, Moncada, Betts, Trout, Judge, Chapman, and Austin Meadows. I hope Miguel Cabrera can have a couple solid seasons to end his career on.

My favorite visiting players? You mean aside from CJ Cron, Jonathan Schoop, Kyle Gibson and Martin Perez?

 

Trout obviously. Edwin Encarnacion, Lindor, Jose Ramirez, Jose Abreu, Tim Anderson, Mookie Betts, Adalberto Mondesi, Vlad Junior, Yoan Moncada. Dodgers coming this year? Bellinger of course!

In order:

Tigers, 

Orioles,

Royals, 

Mariners...

Would love to watch the Marlins visit Target Field as well.

 

Don't think I need to explain this...

Lindor, Bellinger, Judge, Arenado for hitters.

I love watching stud pitchers... When they’re dialed in, it’s the ultimate equalizer in baseball. I also appreciate when their stuff isn’t on that day and they can still work hard to pitch 6 innings.

Thor, Scherzer, Cole, Verlander and Mad Bum are my favorites... Wish I could still say Jose Fernandez because he was by far my favorite to watch pitch, RIP.

I agree. I like watching opponent pitchers giving up HRs and opponent hitters striking out.

I forgot to add Jake Marisnick (will have to wait due to interleague scheduling) and my immense desire to observe the great young Fernando Tatis Jr. in person (my wife and I may travel to SD to see Twins at Pads in Sept).

When Miami was last here (and basically ended Phil Hughes) I was so hopeful to see Jose pitch, but he went the day before.What a talent.He'd be making more than Gerrit Cole.

My favorite visiting player in 1987 was Jose Conseco.In June or July, the A's and Twins were tied for 1st place when the A's came to town with the Bash Brothers. The A's left 4 days later...and were 4 games out of first. It was a sweep. After I got to know Wally the Beer Man, and as the game progressed, I thought I was more and more clever. After every Conseco swing and miss or called strike, I would yell: "Jose can you see?". It was a wonderful 4 days in Minnesota.

I love Lindor. When he hit that home run off the Twins in Puerto Rico as a baseball fan I was thinking...yeah, that's pretty cool.:)

Miguel Cabrera has always been one of my favorites to watch. He is one of the few players that will get me to Target Field to watch visitor batting practice because he's such a charismatic guy that clearly has a lot of fun with his teammates and fans.
