You get to vote 25 times...not all my ballots were the same.

1B...you're right. Tough call between Morneau and Hrbek. Hrbek was there longer, and has the 2 World Series. My ballots were split between these two...most going to Hrbek. I also threw a couple votes for Mientkiewitz...there was about a year and a half that the guy dominated the "Web Gems" segment on Baseball Tonight.

2B...Knoblauch.

3B...Gaetti.

SS...Gotta give a mention to Guzman...for the "All Metrodome" team, the guy had a lot of turf hits and triples...my ballots were split between Gagne and Guzman.

C...Mauer is the best, but some of my ballots had Laudner...for posterity.

SP...Santana, Viola, Blyleven, Radke...my ballots were split among these four. Radke was there, every fifth game, for a loooong time.

RP...Nathan and Aguilera, but a few of my ballots had Reardon.

DH...Mostly Molitor, with a few ballots for Chili Davis.

edit: completely forgot the outfield...Kirby, Torii, and Gladden

dude you crack me up. Working your list backwards great stuff.

So many nights cursing the blown games by Ron Ha. Ouch. Tough years. So what happens if you say alltime.

Here's some questions for you old farts.

Giatti or Killebrew (should be no doubt)

Puckett or Allison (Hmm tougher)

Pitchers Viola or Mudcat Grant

Santana or Kaat

(gets tougher again don't it)

Any others bring the bigger question?

My son thought about Ortiz, but thought some might mix up Jr. with David...All I remember about Borders, is he was supposed to get us over the hump that year.

C- Brian Harper and Joe Mauer is definitely on his way to be one of the faces of the Twins but not yet its too soon and needs to prove he can stay healthy.

1B- Kent Hrbek (all-time and dome) Morneau is definitely on his way though but not yet

2B- Chuck Knoblauch(dome) Rod Carew(all-time)

SS- Greg Gagne or Zoilo Versailles all-time

3B- Gary Gaetti just dome definitely a better fielder than Harmon Killebrew all-time

OF- Kirby Puckett, Torii Hunter, Tom Brunansky(Just dome), Tony Oliva(All time)

DH- Paul Molitor or Chili Davis

SP- Johan Santana(All time and dome), Frank Viola(dome only), Kevin Tapani(dome only), Jim Kaat(all time), Dean Chance or Jim Perry or Bert Blyleven(all-time)

RP- Rick Aguilera(dome), Joe Nathan(all-time and dome), Ron Perranoski(all-time)

PH- Randy Bush

Manager- Tom Kelly (All time)

Carew probably did...he played with the Angels until the early to mid '80s, didn't he? But it would have been as an Angel...

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though.
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
