You know him, you love him, you keep requesting him… “The Closer” Brad Carlson from 1280am The Patriot is back on the show. If you’ve listened for Brad you know his political acumen, but he has even greater knowledge of baseball, so today we talk some Twins.

We’ve talked about ‘87 and ‘91, but we’ve never talked about the lost years (‘93-2000). These were rough years for us Twins fans, but it’s worth discussing.

Now remember, the Twins won the World Series in ‘91 and almost won the division in ‘92, save for a 10 game slide at the end of the season… but that’s when the bottom fell out of the organization.

They started out still having players like Kirby Puckett, Kent Hrbeck, Chuck Knoblauch, David Winfield, Scott Erickson, and Kevin Tapani, but things didn’t go the way fans expected. These years had a strike, restructuring of the divisions, and some horrendous trades. They came close a few times, but just couldn’t get out of their own way. Let’s talk some baseball!
