Farewell, Killer

New Item: Harmon Killebrew dies at age 74

Like I said before, I never saw Killebrew play, but he's been around the team for my entire life, and always a big part of their history. I never met him but I'm pretty sure I must've seen him at the Hall of Fame induction in 2001. It speaks well of the man that opinion is virtually unanimous that he was a wonderful person.

Killebrew was the second-greatest Twin ever (have to give the nod to Kirby), leaving, I guess, Rod Carew as the greatest living Twin, to be surpassed eventually (I hope) by Mauer.
