Top 5 at 7:45 – Former Twins Having Great Seasons
The Top 5 today may irritate some Twins fans because it highlights players who are having great years playing elsewhere after playing in Minnesota at one point in their career. The Top 5 at 7:45 airs weekday mornings with me on WJON.
5) Kyle Lohse – Remember when he attacked Ron Gardenhire’s office door? Lohse has 6 wins already this year.
4) Joe Nathan – He’s in the twilight of his career but has already posted 12 saves for Detroit.
3) Justin Morneau – He’s having a nice bounce-back year in Colorado. Morneau is hitting .312 with 10 homeruns and 33 RBIs.
2) David Ortiz – He’s won 2 World Series titles in Boston. He’s hitting .270 with 12 homeruns and 30 RBIs this year.
1) Carlos Gomez – He was the centerpiece in the Santana trade. Gomez is hitting .323 with 11 homeruns and 30 RBIs in Milwaukee.
