    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

    Yep, that one was my guess. Good job Roy and Matt! Cleaned that question up real quick.

    It's interesting that those '87 Twins are considered by many to be the worst World Series champ ever, yet they are one of only three teams with such a trifecta of power hitters. Granted 30 HR is a somewhat arbitrary cutoff, but still...

    I loved those Twins, until the Series of course. But, they had a very, very good team. However, after Frankie Sweet Music and Blyleven, it was a mess in the rotation. The bullpen was OK, that I remember anyway, with the great Jeff Reardon holding down the end of games. They had a lot of power too: Kirby Puckett, Kent Hrbek, big Tom Brunansky, Gary Gaetti, and Don Baylor. They also had Tim Laudner, Greg Gagne, and Danny Gladden, with some decent guys on the bench like veteran Randy Bush and youngster Gene Larkin. Pretty sure Larkin was there for a bit in '87. Anyway, oh yeah, there was Steve Lombardozzi at second, too.

    Joe Niekro and Steve Carlton made appearances in the rotation, and Lefty was there for the World Series, but he didn't play (too bad for the Cardinals). However, our young rookie southpaw, Joe Magrane, got a chance to meet his idol during the Series. That was good stuff, and I think they even talked about it during one of the games. I remember watching a game that Series where the announcers talked about Lefty being Joe's idol, and they had a shot of Carlton sitting in the Twins' dugout.

    Les Straker filled in for the Twins that year. Big Mike Smithson was injured that year I think. That guy was something like almost Randy Johnson-ish in height.
