10. Rick Aguilera
I hemmed and hawed over which Twins closer belonged on this list. Ultimately, I decided Rick Aguilera’s superior postseason numbers nudged him over the team’s all-time saves leader, Joe Nathan.
Aguilera was nails in the Twins’ run to the 1991 World Championship. Though he took the loss in Game 3 after hitting in a bizarre sequence in the top half of the inning (it’s a long story), he saved both Games 1 and 2 and was the winner of Game 6 after Kirby Puckett’s legendary home run. Aggie was also perfect in the ALCS, securing 3 saves in 3 chances against the Toronto Blue Jays. In addition to his 1991 playoff performance, Aguilera was also a three time All Star as a member of the Twins, making the Midsummer Classic every year from 1991-93.
