Hey, Brandon Warne took this and got 215/230. I thought I'd be pretty good, but I got 185/230 and missed some easy ones. Uggh! Take this, and let us know what you got: It's fun! Reminder of some great names!

I got 185 too! My most embarrassing misses: Shannon Stewart, Delmon Young and Danny Valencia. I was too focused on the older teams, but I got everyone from 1991-1994...

I got 178. I'm young, so I missed mostly on 1992-2000. Worst misses were Luis Castillo, Danny Valencia, Molitor, Winfield, Steinbach.

Danny Valencia, how quickly we forget you. 168, but it wasn't pretty. Woof.

181. That 1995 lineup I would've never guessed in a million years, jesus.

I can't believe I forgot guys like Winfield, Bartlett, and Coomer. They seem so obvious after I gave up.

129. I froze in the clutch and forgot the whole Soul Patrol. That timer really messed with my head! At least I got all the first baseman and opening day starters. Yes, I got Tewksbury, Stahoviak, Tapani and missed Lawton,Hunter, Jones. Ultimate fail!

123 for me! I couldn't figure out how to spell Cristian Guzman and I missed Ortiz and Santana. I was perfect for 2010-2013. But I know nothing about the 90s, cause I was born in '95. Oh, and A. J. Pierzynski is missing a space between the A and the J.

Try this one - given the players involved, can you name which team the Twins made the trade with? I missed 5.

Hate to say it, but as I recall, you only had to type in last names... :)

188 for me. I missed some obvious ones in the 90's (In my defense, I was still pretty young in the early 90's) and totally forgot about Lew Ford (oops). Got everyone from 2007-2013 though, so I was happy with that!

Ha. I realized that when I had just one minute left. So I had to spell Tsuyoshi correctly...

I had 194 but I also missed some obvious ones. I too missed Valencia and embarrassingly I missed Doumit and somehow Marty Cordova despite the fact one of the autographed balls above my head right now has his name singed to it. I wouldn't have gotten Kevin Maas if I had an hour to guess and that 2008 team, wow, how did that starting lineup win 88 games?
