I've updated my top 300 list of Twins all time through the 2019 regular season.  Hopefully there will be some postseason heroics/accolades to add to the resume of the 2019 Twins, but for now this is where I have them sitting.

 

Let me know what you think.  Who's overated, who's underated?

Wow, after looking at this list, I realized how futile the Twins have been for long stretches of time. There are some guys in the top 50 that wouldn't make the top 300 of other franchises. Shane Mack almost top 25, and he was one of my favorite players in the early 90's, but TK basically used him as a platoon player. But that took a lot of work, awesome job, that was awesome looking at some of those names from the past.

You probably are under-rating Mack quite a bit (he was very under-valued at his time).  B-ref has him as the 2nd best Twin on the 1991 champs (behind Tapani) and the 2nd best player (behind Puckett) on the 90 win team the following year.

 

Also, the Twins have a pretty good list of top players, especially when you factor in I'm only looking at 59 years and many of the below franchises are over 100 years old.  See the teams that started around the same time as the Twin below.  If you look at teams like Orioles/Redsox/Dodgers that have been around 50 years more oftent the 24th best player only has about 30-35 rWAR

 

24th best player by B-ref

Twins Shane Mack 19.6

Mets Ron Darling 16.8

Angels Doug DeCinces 18.9

Rangers Kevin Brown 17.7

Astros  Dallas Keuchel 18.3
