Is it just me or are there former Twins everywhere?
In the last few days former Twin Nick Punto hit a game-winning triple in the 11th inning to lead the Cardinals, former Twin Brian Fuentes recorded his seventh save for the A’s and former Twin Wilson Ramos knocked in three runs to lead the Nats past the Mets.
At nearly every position an ex-Twin is having a better season than the current Twins.
Granted, the injury bug has hit the 2011 team—Delmon Young joined Joe Mauer, Kevin Slowey and Tsuyoshi Nishioka on the disabled list this week and several others are day-to-day. Of the regulars only Denard Span and Jason Kubel are hitting above .250 and the pitchers have the highest ERA in the American League.
With the worst record in baseball, I can't help but wonder what could have been if the Twins had some of these former players right now.
Here's a look at some ex-Twinkies who could fill some huge holes right now.
