Twin killing

If the cash-strapped Twins had known the frenzy their bobble-head promotions would cause, they might have staged auctions instead. On June 9 they gave away 5,000 Harmon Killebrew dolls (left); within two days the statuettes were bobbing up on eBay, where one sold for $192.50. On Monday, 28 Kent Hrbeks from last Saturday night's giveaway were available, with bids reaching more than $120. Next up: Tony Oliva and Kirby Puckett dolls. Investors will be waiting.
