Growing up I hated the Minnesota Twins and hate can usually be strong, but in this case, it was fitting.

My earliest memory as a kid as a baseball fan was the 1991 World Series when the Twins got lucky and beat my Atlanta Braves.

That hatred has turned to admiration over the years as I went to the University of Minnesota and attended plenty of Twins games with my now wife and had a blast doing so.

Fast forward to my current job and I cover the Twins and work with members of their organization all the time.

That relationship has turned me into not only a fan of the front office but the team as a whole.

Here are my favorite Minnesota Twins of my lifetime.
