Who are we missing?

On a gloomy Tuesday morning, I don't have much to say myself, so I'm curious as to which former Twins you are missing most this year? Either for personality, adorableness and/or usefulness. Let's keep it to currently active players, shall we? Who do you miss most right now, and why. Go!

[This is also an appropriate time for your best theories as to what the hell happened to Carlos Silva this year. I am guessing that he started back in with his spinning classes, but that's purely speculation.]

I miss Craig Breslow. For so many reasons. His awkward approach to the mound, the endless references to the "smartest man in baseball," his high "good at baseball" quotient.

Now he's wearing white shoes because the Twins were dumb. Oh, what might have been...

Drat! You beat me to it and had to add in the "currently active" clause. I'm going to have to say... OOOH, ok... it has to be Jason Bartlett for 2 reasons.
A) he's better than Harris and Tolbert (I know, I like Tolbert too, but let's be honest)
B) with our infield injuries, we could so use him back.

Mike Redmond. Best attitude in baseball.

Gomez! He was so fun and I miss his handshakes and hyperactivity. My missing him really has nothing to do with his baseball ability...more the amusement factor

I still, and will always, miss Jason Bartlett. Everytime I see him, I scream "Why God? Why did you take him from us?!" (OK, maybe not every time) And it has also caused me to harbor ill feelings towards Delmon Young, no matter how much he tries to get on my good side by improving his baseball abilities.

I will forever pine for a certain Venezuelan lefty with a gift for sitting down the b*tches. We shall not speak his name. Sigh.

I miss Dennys Reyes and his chubby cheeks (and his super low ERA).

I miss Jason Tyner and cheering for him to hit a home run.

I miss Luis Castillo and his antics.

craig breslow is a very good choice for most missed twin (i don't say former twin because i still claim these guys), but i think i have to go with redmond.

Torii Hunter. Brad Radke. AJ Pierzinski. Doug Mientkiewicz.

I really need to live in the now.
