Whenever a poor team unloads a pricey vet, you know what's coming next—a cheap fill-in. The Twins say, "Goodbye, Chuck Knoblauch. Hello, Otis Nixon!" At the age of 39, Nixon is being asked to do nothing more than lead off, hit at least .280, score 100 runs and play sparkling centerfield. Most important, the Twins need him to steal 60 bases. Are they going to win lots of games if he does? No. But Nixon, who swiped 59 last year with Toronto and the Dodgers, is the one guy who can ignite the offense Minnesota needs to I) make up for bad pitching, and 2) win—if God loves beer and cheese—75 games.
