    Since no pitchers were on the list in the poll, would you place Santana higher in franchise history than Walter Johnson, or only amongst actual Twins players?

      Since the poll doesn't include pitchers (Johnson, Santana, Kaat?, Viola?), and doesn't include other shorter-time franchise greats (Frank Howard, Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Kent Hrbek), does include a pretty good cross-section (but- Maranville?), gotta go with Killebrew over Carew (lots of time with the Angels) and Puckett (a great one but not enough time). Plus, Harmon has one of the best names in baseball history. Good poll, some order placement bias might be skewing the results, maybe cluster the obvious choices more towards the center of the listings to ensure more even distribution of consideration?

        Haven't you heard? All postings of opinion are "ridiculous", unless posted by Mr. Ed.

              I've gotta go with Rod Carew.

              On another note, I lived in the Twin Cities for a few years and I just can't see why they love Hrbek so much. Can anyone explain how he got his number retired next to Killebrew, Oliva, Carew, and Puckett?
