Eddie Yost

I'll repost this article from Fangraphs, but also post a little of my own thoughts.

Two days ago, Eddie Yost passed away at the age of 86. He was a third baseman for the Washington Senators, and if you look at the history of the Minnesota Twins and combine it with the original Senators, he still is the best third baseman in franchise history.

He was known  for drawing walks, which is remarkable considering how little power he had.
