This is all pre-me.

The catchers on the Twins when I started paying attention were Tim Laudner and Dave Engle. Engle I think was the one that developed an inability to throw the ball back to the pitcher.


More on Engle: During his sophomore season, Engle became the first player to hit a home run in Minneapolis's newly opened Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. This occurred on opening day, April 6, 1982 and also marked the first hit, run scored, and R.B.I. in the stadium's history.

Don't forget Sal Butera. He was there with Engle and Laudner. Engle moved more into a catching role after Butera left, as Engle was primarily an outfielder before that.


Sal was 1985, Engle and Laudner were earlier....Laudner stayed on. I started watching about 1983. There was a Ray Smith on the roster at one point too. but it was Laudner and Engle.

Puckett started the next year.

Sal was 1980-1982.

Anyone remember Tom Herr's only HR in a Twins uniform? I do. It was at Tiger Stadium and it went over the roof and out of the park.

The only problem with Donaldson has been injuries. The man plays his ass off every game.

I have a baseball card from 1985 season. Pretty sure it was with the Twins. Tom Nieto, Tim Laudner and Sal.

According to Baseball Reference, Butera's last year with the Twins was 1982. He was with Montreal in 1985.

I agree

But apparently there’s a faction of fans who think he’s a jerk and a distraction
Me? Give me several of these type of guys that agitate
Twins need some villains

Couldn't agree more. Gaetti, Gladden, Morris, AJ...players of that ilk piss people off and win ballgames.

Name this player: A look at the all-time pitching lists finds him rubbing shoulders with some Hall of Famers. His strikeouts exceed Juan Marichal’s and Jim Palmer’s. His ERA+ rivals Robin Roberts’ and Jim Bunning’s. His WHIP matches Bert Blyleven’s. His pitching WAR exceeds Bob Feller’s and falls just short of Palmer’s. In 15 years on the Hall of Fame ballot, he somehow never received more than 31 percent of the BBWAA vote.

AHEM

In 1984, Hernández became only the third player ever to win the Cy Young Award, the MVP Award, and the World Series title, all in the same season (Sandy Koufax was the first to accomplish this feat, in 1963 and Denny McLain in 1968.)

This pitcher unanimously won both the Cy Young and MVP.

Justin Verlander, Roger Clemens and a few others have won both the Cy Young and MVP. But they did not unanimously win both.

It's a very tricky question.

The answer is Denny McLain in 1968.
