1985 Minnesota Twins Roster
The season saw the return of prankster Bert Blyleven to the Minnesota Twins, who traded Jay Bell/Curt Wardle/Rich Yett and Jim Weaver for the curveball specialist. But even Blyleven's veteran presence couldn't help a team that faltered both at bat and from the mound. In mid-season, Billy Gardner was fired as manager and replaced by pitching guru Ray Miller, who had done wonders with his staff of flamethrowers in Baltimore. Despite the changes, the team still limped along, coming in a distant fourth in the division. Tom Brunansky was the Twins lone All-Star as the fans turned out 1,651,814 strong with hopes now for next year!
