When choosing a Minnesota Twins player to be for Halloween, I’d definitely choose the easy pick!
Out With the Old
Let me begin this article, my second as a contributor to Puckett’s Pond, by giving props to Brian Dozier. You had a long and illustrious run as the best looking player on the Minnesota Twins. I don’t like to be the bearer of bad news but I will do it I have to, and in this case I have to. Mr. Dozier, your reign is over.
At this point you all are probably saying to yourself, “This new contributor is nuts, Dozier is the best looking Twin and always will be as long as he’s on the team.” Again, I’ll be the bearer of bad news and tell you that you’re wrong. A new player has usurped him quietly and you didn’t even notice.
In With the New
I’m here to tell you that Max Kepler is the best looking Twin and has been since June 1, 2016. On that day, he went a quiet 0-4 in a 5-1 loss to the A’s. But also on that day, he became a consistent starter for the Twins. In order to be the best looking player on the team you have to be a steady contributor. On that fateful day, he became just that and took his rightful place as the best looking Twin.

What makes Kepler the best looking Twin? It’s the hair. People often say “the hair makes the man” and in this case it is absolutely true. He knows the European style is in right now and he pulls it off flawlessly.
My Halloween Costume
Instead of going for the scary look this Halloween (see Chris Gimenez), I’m opting to go for the more refined look and be Max Kepler, the best looking Twin. All I need to do is bust out my #26 jersey and Twins cap and grow a way better head of hair.
Have a safe and fun Halloween, Twins fans!
