1978 Minnesota Twins Roster
Free agency tore apart the Minnesota Twins as outfielders Lyman Bostock and Larry Hisle jumped ship for richer waters. The promising 'Minnesota Lumber Company' was no more. A team in transition fell to 787,878 spectators as the losses piled up. Mike Cubbage did hit for the cycle against the Toronto Blue Jays and Rod Carew, again, named a starter for the mid-season All-Star game, grabbing the batting crown (his 7th in 10 seasons) with a .333 average. Mike Marshall joined the team from out of nowhere in mid-May and had 43 decisions (wins/losses/saves) in 54 appearances. Wait until next year!
