1998 Minnesota Twins Roster

Mad as hell, and he ain't gonna take it anymore! Chuck Knoblauch, the future of the franchise, asked the Minnesota Twins to trade him...anywhere. The New York Yankees bit and sent slugger Brian Buchanan, prospect Danny Mota, a young shortstop named Christian Guzman, and lefty Eric Milton to the Twins. It didn't help the Twins in '98, but other prospects got call-ups and the future started to look a little bit brighter. Attendance slipped to 1,165,980 as Brad Radke emerged as the ace of the pitching staff.
