It’s always personally fun for me when the Twins are around since I used to work that beat and still know most of the coaches and beat writers. In a sign of the times, it’s funny that only a small amount of players remain since I left Minnesota after 2005 — Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Joe Nathan, Nick Punto, Michael Cuddyer, Scott Baker, Matt Guerrier, Jason Kubel and Mike Redmond. None are left from my first year there in 2001.
