Since the days of Babe Ruth, the big, brawny, larger-than-life slugger has been the most mystical figure in sport. Alas, the Twins haven't had one for 40 years, since loveable hero Harmon Killebrew checked out of Met Stadium. But last year, Miguel Sano showed up at Target Field. And with him came the shimmering hope that, finally, the Twins had a singular player worth the price of admission. Yes, he appeared in only 80 games. And, yes, he jacked only 18 homers. But he showed the potential to become one of the American League's next great long-ball threats. On a team with a popgun offense, Sano presents the thrill of something big, something special, every time he steps to the plate.
