Is he deserving of a vote?

Much like Dean Chance he put up some very good numbers but didn’t pitch long enough in a Twins uniform to garner consideration for a vote.

Career Stats .266 average with 39 home runs and 289 RBI.

2004 All Star

War 7.5

Is he deserving of a vote?

Much like many other players on this list he had some good numbers while in Minnesota but didn’t have the consistency needed to end up in the team Hall of Fame.

Brian Harper

Years spent in a Twins Uniform  (7 Years)

Career stats .306 average 48 Homeruns 346 RBI

Is he deserving of a vote?

He is on the edge for me as he put up some great numbers in a Twins uniform but it’s not enough to garner a vote from me.

Jacque Jones

Years spent in a Twins uniform 1999-2005 (7 years)

Career Stats .279 average 132 Homeruns 476 RBI

Is he deserving of a vote?

Good numbers but with very few spots to vote available the line has to be drawn somewhere.

War 22.2

Is he deserving of a vote?
