My next guess would have been Mickey Mantle, who had twin brothers.

See I didnt think you guys would be that intuitive - I thought you'd start throwing Minnesota Twins at me.  I'll have to rethink my approach next time

Dogface would have listed every MT player.  I can see it now

Killebrew
Oliva
Allison
Carew
Battery
valdespino
Rollins
Grant
etc.

Close.  I was getting ready to name every set of twins in the major leagues.  There's only been six or seven pairs in history, it would've been much quicker.

I thought for sure you would have jumped in with Ozzie after
I guessed Jose. I thought I blew it, as Big J likes to pick
lesser lights. I don't know why I picked Jose first.

I didn't log in until after you picked Ozzie.  Like you yesterday, I was too late.  So it goes.
