    We were counting on him for bullpen help as a team going to the playoffs. He gave us nothing. He was terrible from his very first appearance with us.  The Twins F.O. openly questioned weather the Giants had sent us damaged goods. Oh, and we had to take on his $5 million dollar salary....We got burned!

    The White Sox, specifically their owner Jerry Reinsdorf, needs to take the PR hit right now and find another manager. JR can back pedal by saying he got ahead of himself and will allow the professionals he hired to interview for a better fit.

    Non-specific stuff: some feel he's weighed in far too often on the Colin Kaepernick stuff, has called him a "fraud", has also said that he would "never allow anyone to take a knee" when the anthem would play, etc. Some people believe that prioritizing the flag over the feelings of minority players is racist. Former players Ron Gant, Royce Clayton, Brian Jordan (among others) have called him a racist. Marcus Stroman obviously feels the same. I don't have specifics, just citing what's been said.
     
    Specifically: in 2010, La Russa publicly supported Arizona's odious SB 1070 law, which essentially encouraged racial profiling of Latinos. Ozzie Guillen spoke out against it.

    I think my favorite current player to hate is Lance Lynn. Dude definitely got the short end of the stick in free agency when the Twins picked him up on the cheap in 2018, but he seemed to have no interest in giving any effort or helping the team win as a result as if it was our fault. Dude gets traded to the Yankees midseason because of course and is suddenly a passable pitcher, give me a break. On top of that, he follows up that season with a season that gets him Cy Young votes in Texas. 
     
    Fight me Lance.

    Since these players are retired - Knoblauch has to get the prize for the Twins.  His reception was out of bounds for Minnesota Nice.  AJ did get the boos and is a good choice because I think he liked that.  
     
    For me it will always be the PED guys who destroyed baseballs most sacred numbers!  
    And for all the Yankee haters (me too) I have to remind you that they are so universally disliked that there was a play called Damn Yankees.

    Yeah, it's not any one Yankee in particular. It's the organization and their fans and their collective sense of entitlement. And the media that feed and feed off of that.
     
    Edit: And the Red Sox and Dodgers are not far behind the Yankees. And of course we can't forget the Astros.

    That was a beautiful quote.  AJ should be in the Twins HOF for his good play and for getting Nathan, Liriano and Bonzer while making room for Mauer to play. Also, great pick with Sabbathia.   Anyone that says "Man up and swing the bat" at guys that bunt and then throws at their head because he either can't or doesn't want to man up and field his own d@#$ position gets no respect from me.       David Ortiz for constantly dissing the Twins.   I thought he was a good hitter for the Twins and what he learned from them may have launched his career but all he did was throw shade.  I've never cared one way or another about the Yankees but I have always hated the White Sox.   Oddly, Crede, Konerko and Thome were guys I really liked.   Really class guys.    Didn't care for Mark Buehrle.     Maybe at the top of my list is Tommy Kerr.   He could have been really good with the Twins but instead was just a complete d()()che.

    As SQUIRREL said, I don't really hate any opposing player, not like Al Secord for those of us of a certain age who were North Stars fans, but if I have to choose one player it would be either AJ or CC Sabathia.
    In AJ's case, I remember him spiking our first baseman once. (Mientkiewicz I think.) I was told that Ozzie Guillen said about him, "If he's not on your team you hate him. If he's on your team you hate him less." I also heard third-hand a story about his behavior in an off-field situation which I will not relate here.
    Regarding Sabathia, I seem to remember him purposely hitting at least two of our players when he was with Cleveland. I think he broke Morneau's wrist or something, didn't he?

    Good call on Konerko. Nothing really rubbed me the wrong way about him, either, but he was a great player on a division rival, so the shoe fits. Man, he was with the White Sox for 16 years!? Wow.
     
     
    What's football?
     
     
    A-Rod was my runner up to Jeter, mainly because he was both really good and a Yankee.
     
    He is a very solid broadcaster, but it's still weird to me he's so embedded in the game. The league seems a lot more embarrassed of some of the other guys from the steroid era, some of whom were never even suspended.
     
    I'll be curious to see what kind of support he gets once eligible for the Hall of Fame.

    Anyone who played for the Yankees. There, I said it for all of us.
     
    In all seriousness, Jeter was a good ballplayer, but I agree he was very overrated. But, Yankee, east coast bias, etc.
     
    This goes back a few years but the guy I "hated" was Ricky Henderson. Hits, HR, SB, he just seemed to torment the Twins. Of course, he seemed to do that to everyone else too. I also didn't care for his attitude.

    #2 - Twins over Braves (#1 was Reds over Red Sox in 1975)
     
    #32 - Dodgers over Twins
     
    #56 - Twins over Cardinals (I may have moved that up a few notches).
     
    Thoughts?
