Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Mid-day talker: A list of every Twins All-Star since 2000

Posted by: Michael Rand under Professional baseball, Twins fans Updated: May 12, 2011 - 1:27 PM

 

A universally agreed-upon fact: If the All-Star roster was announced today, Jason Kubel would be the lone Twins player worthy of selection. That would make Kubel the 13th different Twins player chosen to play in the Mid-Summer Classic starting in the year 2000. Here is a list of the rest (if you prefer to do this as a quiz, squint or cover your eyes before scrolling down):

 

 

*Eddie Guardado (2002, 2003)
*Cristian Guzman (2001)
*Torii Hunter (2002, 2007)
*Matt Lawton (2000)
*Francisco Liriano (2006)
*Joe Mays (2001)
*Joe Mauer (2006, 2008, 2009, 2010)
*Eric Milton (2001)
*Justin Morneau (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010)
*Joe Nathan (2004, 2005, 2008, 2009)
*A.J. Pierzynski (20012)
*Johan Santana (2005, 2006, 2007)

Note: You are reading that correctly -- Santana won the Cy Young in 2004 and Morneau won the MVP in 2006, but neither were all-stars that year. Also, Morneau obviously missed the game a season ago while injured, but he was chosen as a reserve. Any other thoughts on that stroll down memory lane?
