How Old Are They?

I am often surprised by the relative age of players. I think of guys like Rauch being old while Guerrier as young. Here is a list of the Twins roster sorted by date or birth, oldest to youngest. Joe Mauer is still in the younger half of the 40 player roster. Delmon Young would live up to his name even if he was still a prospect  fighting for a roster spot. It makes you realize just how much better this team can still get.

Neat idea to look at their ages.

That is pretty interesting... also makes me feel very old... only two Twins players are older than me! UGGH!

Incredible how Young Young is...

I think people forget how young Young is. But I also remember how young Rivas was. He was 25 his last season with the Twins and never lived up to his top prospect billing. Player development is definitely not a science.
