Puckett’s Pond is enlisting your help in deciding who the greatest Minnesota Twins in history are at each position. Eventually we’ll square off each position against the others and wind up with the greatest Minnesota Twin, as selected by you. The first position we’ll be selecting is catcher. We’ll only be counting literal Minnesota Twins and not the pre-1961 Washington franchises. Players also will need 700 PAs as a Twin to qualify. We ask you to consider the player based solely on his time as a Twin and at the position specified.
First round matchups for the Greatest Minnesota Twins second baseman according to you are all wrapped up. We’ve matched up Lombardozzi against Teufel, Castillo vs Wilfong, Knoblauch vs Dozier and Carew against Allen in round one. It’s time for round two.
(We considered just skipping to the final round since we have little doubt about who will win these round two matchups but we thought it best to not make assumptions and stick with the format)
Steve Lombardozzi defeated Tim Teufel and took 66% of the vote. Chuck Knoblauch took down Brian Dozier with a 62% share of the vote. Knoblauch and Lombardozzi will face each other in round two.
(Matchup #2 is on the next slide.)
Matchup #1: Lombardozzi vs Knoblauch
If you need a refresher on either player’s accomplishments see the rundowns we gave in round one (Steve’s and Chuck’s). Both players helped the Twins win a World Series: Knoblauch as a rookie in 1991 and Lombardozzi in 1987.
