That’s right. I ranked all fifty-five of these players like they are pieces of meat. Come fight me.

The Twins and the Brewers are doing their two-games at home, two-games away series this week, which is a yearly thing except for the years the Twins face the NL Central teams in inter-league. In celebration of this event (or events?), I took a look at every MLB player who has played for both the Twins and the Brewers—there are fifty-five in all—and I ranked them. I ranked them all like pieces of god damn meat or like I was a Deadspin writer or something.

What criteria did I rank these players by? How good they were, maybe giving more weight to how much time these players spent with the two teams. I mean, these are my rankings. I can do whatever I want.

So without further ado, here are the best Minnesota Twins who were also Milwaukee Brewers, ranked 55 through 1:
