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.

Stu's Hunt Down: Former Twins OF/DH Rondell White

Posted by: Michael Rand under Professional baseball, Twins fans Updated: March 7, 2014 - 10:42 AM

Each week, commenter RandBallsStu (branding!) tracks down a former Minnesota sports figure about whom you might have forgotten. This works well (usually). Stu?

-------------

The Huntdown

Name: Rondell White

Claim to Fame, Minnesota: a member of your 2006 and 2007 Minnesota Twins. Like your Craig Monroes and Phil Nevins, White was the budget veteran acquisition who the Twins really hoped would add some pop to the lineup.  He did not.  In his two years with the hometown nine, he tallied a mere 11 jack jobs.  If the Mitchell Report is to be believed, that averages out to $318/dinger for the check he wrote for steroids and HGH in 2005, three months before landing in Minnesota.

Has the Real Rondell White Finally Arrived: no, Minnesota Public Radio, he has not.

Claim to Fame, Everywhere Else: spent the non-journeyman portion of his career with the Montreal Expos (RIP) organization, where he toiled 10 years before being dealt to the Chicago Cubs in 2000.  After that, he went everywhere, man: stints with the Yankees, Padres, Royals and Tigers followed, before his final stop here.

Where He Is Now: per Wiki, he lives in Gray, Georgia, near his birthplace of Milledgeville.

Why Have I Heard of Milledgeville Before: because Ben Roethlisberger was there once.

Is He on Twitter: no. 

Has He Ever Been in a Twitter Feud with Patrick Reusse: no.

Glorious Randomness: he is Jerry Manuel’s son-in-law.
