    Oh my god, who voted for Frank Quilici, Gene Larkin and Dave Winfield as members of the Twins greatest 50 players?? What about Ron Perranoski, Dave LaRoche, Doug Corbett, Ron Davis, Scott Erickson, Eddie guardado, LaTroy Hawkins, JC Romero???? And there are many, many others. I see this list as very poor and a slap in the face to many solid players.
