This trivia question about the Minnesota Twins has been bothering me for days! "A pitcher for the Minnesota Twins set this record in 2002 and the record still stands today. What is it?"

If anyone can knows please tell me! I'm beginning to think it may not be baseball related. I cannot figure it out for the life of me.

Guardado's save record, maybe?

Is it a team record or league/MLB record?

^ This (45 Sv)

Also Santana tied the WP record with 15 that season.

Wasn't that also the year Tony Fiore picked up like 12 wins in relief?

The only record I can find, from 2002, on baseball reference for the Twins would be Santana's K/9 at 11.38.
