Goodbye Puck

Kirby Puckett, dead at age 45.

"I know if there were a line of players standing on a block and I had the
first pick, I would pick Kirby Puckett."
-Kent Hrbek

"There was no player I enjoyed playing against more than Kirby. He brought
such joy to the game. He elevated the play of everyone around him."
-Carlton Fisk

"He had some faults, we knew that, but when all was said and done he
would treat you as well as he would anyone else. No matter who you were."

-Twins GM Terry Ryan

Rest in peace Puck.
