1. Trevor Plouffe. Really cool dude, nice with signing at games and with organizing public signings, can crush the ball to left if he gets a good swing, and we've lacked a strong 3B since before Koskie. Revere and Burnett get honorable mention, Revere for being his hustle despite his eight hoppers to second, and Burnett because I bought some nice cards of him for cheap and he eats innings.

1. Ryan Doumit. I just love the effort he puts in. When he was injured this year and Gardy wanted to put him on the DL, he just told Gardy no, something that Gardy probably doesn't hear very often.

1. Denard Span. Just liked the way he came up and played in 2008. Was a great person to have take over centerfield after Torii's departure.

1. Boof Bonser! I was in Minneapolis to see Liriano pitch his rookie year but he was scratched and I got Boof instead. Yeah... I was psyched...

On a more serious note my favorite Twin is Justin Morneau. Doesn't get much hobby love and his concussion problems haven't helped but the guy is a former MVP. I can remember back a few years ago when Morneau and Mauer were one of the deadliest one two punches in baseball. The M&M Boys. I miss those days.

Everyday Eddie Guardado. Was a badass closer. Always brought his 'A' game and was among the best for a few years there in the early 00's.

1. Bert Blyleven. I think he was just a quality all-around pitcher and an outstanding guy. I can't even imagine watching the Twins without Bert announcing the game, it's blasphemy. It's one thing to play for the team, but he's continued to be a part of the organization into retirement, which is just great. He can be a little outspoken at times, but he's not afraid to stand by his beliefs. Circle Me! Circle ME!!!

1) Tony Oliva- Aside from being named after him, he was my dads favorite player. Obviously I never got to see him play, but growing up in my dads card shop I got to hear stories of how great he was. Sad that his career was shortened due to injuries.

2) Tony

1) Definantly Kirby Puckett, as a kid watching him play in the 87 and 91 series was truly remarkable. Especially living in St Louis in 87 and routing for the Twins over the Cards and having them pull it off, will always remember being hated for it!
2) Curt

Not a Twins fan but...
Terry Felton
Went 0-16 in his major league career. I sent him a few cards to autograph with a short letter and he not only autographed the cards, but he responded to the letter (I asked why didn't he try to make a comeback (around 1986 or so) and he responded he had injuries. Very cool!)
