I factored in "clutch". Who came through when you needed a hit. No one better then Rod Carew. Being old enough to see everyone on the list play, Rodney was greatest clutch hitter I have ever seen.

the top three are really interchangeable to me. all the best for different reasons. the bottom 4 i almost didn't even make, as the top six are a couple grades above them. but for the game here, i make them. i doubt wartman will get on any list. and he shouldn't. if he is one of the twins' 10 best hitters of all time... then they where much worse than i remember. joe......... could be be best, but does OBP make one a better hitter? isn't it really about the hit, and not the eye? joe needs home runs to rule the roost, and is trapped in the throws of the "twins way". ortiz is the honorary pick, as he should have always been on the twins. the pick here is a testament to the great career that ryan and gardenhire sent packing for their misguided "twins way", and to any that did not fit in but should have with larger minded and more insightful management.

1. Carew (best hitter anywhere over last 50 years)
There is a gap
Lymon Bostock belongs in this list too--but too short a time for him...
