Again, did we ever say this would be fast?
We here at Notinhalloffame.com have completed our next all-time top 50, this time that of the Minnesota Twins.
As for all of our top 50 players in baseball we look at the following:
- Sabremetric tallies while with that team, mostly WAR.
- Traditional metrics and how they finished in their respective league overall.
- Playoff accomplishment.
- Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.
Here is something else worth noting: While the Minnesota Twins really don’t acknowledge much of their Washington Senators past, this is part of it according to the official history of the organization according to Major League Baseball. The Minnesota Twins Hall of Fame may not have any Senators in it, but this list does…until MLB tells us not to recognize this as franchise history.
The complete list can be found here,
but as always we announce our top five in our news. They are:
- Walter Johnson
- Rod Carew
- Harmon Killebrew
- Kirby Puckett
- Joe Mauer
So which team is up next?
The New York Yankees, the most successful team in North American team sports. Look for that in a week.
As always, we here at Notinhalloffame.com thank you for your support.
