On Wednesday afternoon, I did my regular weekly Twins Talk segment with Dave Overlund on WJON radio in St. Cloud. Instead of talking more about a struggling Twins team, we had a really fun time doing a Twins Fantasy Draft. I'd love to hear your thoughts on our teams. Who would win? Click the link in the tweet below and you can listen to the segment. 

 For this draft, we selected the following: 
SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, DH 

It's always so much fun looking back at the history of the Twins. 60+ seasons. So many great players. Hall of Famers. Twins Hall of Famers. All Stars. 

Find out who we selected for our teams and let us know what you think. 

I think I'll go with this lineup: 

Rod Carew 2B
Joe Mauer C
Kirby Puckett CF
Tony Oliva RF
Kent Hrbek 1B
Bob Allison LF
Justin Morneau DH
Corey Koskie 3B
Roy Smalley SS 
Jim Kaat SP

My two favorite Twins, ever, are Tony Oliva and Rod Carew. The greatest Twin, however, was Harmon Killebrew. He played 1B, 3B, LF, and DH in his career. Hrbek, Koskie, Allison, and Morneau would all agree to step aside for Harmon.

Your first four should be unanimous picks and if the Veterans Committee chooses Tony, all Hall of Famers.

I would choose a couple different players: Lyman Bostock, LF; Greg Gagne, SS; Gary Gaetti, 3B; and Johan Santana as my ace. Leave Herbie at 1B with Harmon as the DH or switch them as Harmon was from (mostly) a pre-DH era.

The Twins have had some great players and teams.

1B was tough between Carew, Killebrew, Hrbek and Morneau

Smalley was a close 2nd at SS

Killebrew started his career at LF so there is where I put him

Utility: Tovar

Cool that you added Cesar. He was such an exciting player and can easily be left off of an all time team and utility players have always been critical components of great teams. Tovar belongs, for sure.
