MINNESOTA TWINS (2000-2002): DAVID ORTIZ, JOHAN SANTANA, TORII HUNTER, LUIS RIVAS, CHRISTIAN GUZMAN and EDDIE GUARDADO Mini helmet with team logo, signed by 6 key players Helmet signed: "David Ortiz/27", "Johan Santana", "Torii Hunter/#48", "Eddie Guardado/18", "Christian Guzman 15" and "Luis Rivas/2". Miniature helmet with team logo of the Minnesota Twins, signed in white ink. All six signers were together on the team for three seasons, 2000-2002. Dominican first baseman and designated hitter DAVID ORTIZ (b. 1975) played for the Twins from 1997 through 2002, playing for the Twins in the 2002 postseason. Although he had posted good offensive numbers, the Twins made a colossal mistake by releasing Ortiz after that season. Picked up as a free agent by the Boston Red Sox, his game-winning homer against the New York Yankees in the 2004 ALCS boosted the Sox toward their first World Championship since 1918, and helped them notch a second in 2007. He was a 6-time All-Star and 5-time MVP contender with Boston, for whom he still plays in 2011. TORII HUNTER (b. 1975) joined the Twins as a rookie in 1997, the same year as Ortiz, and stayed with the team for 11 seasons before moving to the Angels. The perpetual Gold Glove centerfielder and speedy base runner made the first of his four (to date) All-Star appearances in 2002. He has hit exceptionally well over six postseasons, four with the Twins and two with the Angels. Venezuelan pitcher JOHAN SANTANA (b. 1979) played 8 seasons with the Twins (2000-2007) before being traded to the New York Mets. A 5-time All-Star, he won the American League Cy Young Award in 2004 and again in 2006. In his last 5 seasons with the Twins, he compiled a 67-22 record, winning over 3/4s of his decisions. He led AL hurlers in strikeouts three seasons in a row (2004-2006). Also born in Venezuela in 1979 was middle infielder LUIS RIVAS, who played mostly 2B for the Twins for six seasons (2000-2005). He was the League's second youngest player in his rookie season. Rivas finished out his career with single seasons in Cleveland and Pittsburgh. The modern statistical measurement Wins Above Replacement (WAR) suggests that his teams would have been better off without Rivas, since he had a negative WAR in every one of his seasons. Southpaw relief pitcher EDDIE GUARDADO (b. 1970) pitched 11 seasons for the Twins (1993-2003), and seven more for three other teams (Mariners, Rangers and Reds). The 2-time All-Star led the AL in games pitched (83) in 1996 and in saves (45) in 2002, earning the nickname "Everyday Eddie." Living up to his reputation, he struck out both batters he faced in the 2002 All-Star Game. CHRISTIAN GUZMAN, another Dominican, born in 1978, was the starting shortstop for the Twins in each of his six seasons there (1999-2004). A switch hitter, the speedy Guzman led the league in triples three times and made the All-Star team twice. Granted free agency in 2004, he signed with the Washington Nationals, who traded him to the Texas Rangers in 2010. Fine condition.
