Our lineup when the Twins will be playing for the World Series?
We all long for the Octobers of 1987 and 1991. Granted, now we're ending seasons in November.
The point is, we all want to be back there. And more than anything, we want to be playing beyond the ALDS.
Is this what we'll be looking at in a few years?
It's kinda funny looking at it, Joe Mauer will be called Grampa in a locker room like this. We could have fun with speculation as to whom the 4th outfielder would be... along with the backup/secondary catcher. Mauer will likely trade off DHing with a Parmalee type. I know with the exception of those two guys, it would be a fast team!
I don't expect this perfect storm of bodies to approach the majors and the Twins be this golden, all home grown team, but it would be fun it they could rise up much like we did at the beginning of the 2000's and mix in one or two decent FA's.
It would be fun to speculate on the 5man rotation as well, but I can't as the Twins always figure a way to get their starting pitching prospects hurt. Anyone counting the days til Meyer and May get TJ surgery too?
Santa, this is my wish list in a year or two or three.
