Minnesota Twins: Zoilo Versalles put it all together in 1965

When we look back on previous Most Valuable Player Award winners over the years, we see a lot of well-known names: Hall of Famers and other stars who had long and prosperous careers.

I feel like enough time has passed for me to not be sad/mad/disappointed/defeated about the 2021 season and I can start looking at things with a little more clarity and a little less emotion. The non-Twins teams I was rooting for in the post season have already made their exit. And I really am bored with the prospect of another Houston/Red Sox AL Championship and while the Dodgers/Giants series is exciting, I couldn’t care less who actually wins that one. That being said, I am...
