EX-TWIN FACTOR

Maybe we should’ve played the All-Star Game here last summer. The 2014 team contains only two former Twins, down from eight on the 2013 team.

The 2014 ex-Twins: Milwaukee outfielder Carlos Gomez, St. Louis pitcher Pat Neshek.

The 2013 ex-Twins: Gomez, Detroit outfielder Torii Hunter, Colorado outfielder Michael Cuddyer, Milwaukee shortstop J.J. Hardy, Boston DH/first baseman David Ortiz, Chicago White Sox reliever Jesse Crain (now with Houston), Texas reliever Joe Nathan (now with Detroit), Oakland reliever Grant Balfour (now with Tampa Bay).
