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

1st Hrbek, Morneau obviously deserving as well

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...

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
