  • All-time Minnesota Twins team

    Just a little note I should add before beginning, you guys can jump in and put down your rosters and lineups on who would make the all-time team. No honest pressure or anything, I'd just like to hear some opinions.

    What is your all-time Minnesota Twins team?

    1B: Kent Hrbek (3B) (number retired, and decent hitter)
    2B: Rod Carew
    3B: Harmon Killebrew (1B/OF) (number retired, decent hitter)
    SS: Steve Braun
    C: Earl Battey
    LF: Torii Hunter (OF) (Not a career as long as others but it's his defense that puts him in)
    CF: Kirby Puckett (OF) (This guy came clutch during 1991 WS, and did decent hitting)
    RF: Tony Oliva (OF)
    Util: Shane Mack (OF)
    Jacque Jones (OF)
    Doug Mientkiewicz (1B)
    Larry Hisle (OF)
    Chuck Knoblauch (2B/SS/LF)


    SP: Jim Kaat
    Bert Blyleven
    Dave Boswell
    Jim Perry
    Tom Johnson

    RP/CP: Dave Goltz
    Dick Woodson
    Frank Viola

    Manager: Tom Kelly

      I have to agree with Chisox team. I might add Dave Campbell as RP. I don't see how Steve Braun can make an all-time Twins team.
      In the 1920's, Harry Heilmann led the AL with a .364 average. In addition, he averaged 220 hits, 45 doubles, 12 triples, 16 homers, 110 runs, and 130 RBI.

              Attention:There is only 1 week left for you to fill out your entries for the all-time Twins team, so get those entries in soon.

              After the week has passed, we will discuss who makes the 25 man roster out of the ones who are chosen.

                RP/CP:Bill Campbell
                Dave Goltz
                ------------------
                So it's Campbell versus Goltz for the last bullpen spot. I just need a majority to choose 1 of these guys to complete the all time Minnesota Twins team. Plus, which 2 outfielders out of the 3 with 2 votes take the field? Discuss.

                  Allison

                  I would say the OF should be Allison, Puckett, Olivia.

                    Can a mod who is knowledgabke about Twins history add a poll to this thread?

                    I want the results for the All-Time position by position battle. I have a thread about it in the history forum if you're interested.
