Twins Top Moments: Final Four

Okay, no more need to show the videos.  I'm guessing you know who you're voting for.  We are down to four #1 seeds so I'm guessing I seeded this okay.

Which moment of the 1991 World Series was the best?

Alright, let's end this thing this week if we can.  All the #1 seeds survived and we have one #6 seed left.

Found Vin Scully's full call of Puckett's homer.

#3. Kirby Puckett Robs Ron Gant (Def. Twins Win 2002 ALDS 12-2)

#1. Gene Larkin Walks-Off Game 7 (Def. Hrbek Tags Out Gant 14-2)

#3. Hrbek/Laudner Turn 3-6-3 Double Play (Def. Hrbek Grand Slam 11-5)

Joe Mauer Region: Sweet 16

I tried to find Hawk Harrelson's call of Thome's homer.  There's even a reddit threat talking about looking for the clip.  Alas, it appears to be gone forever.  I guess a minute of silence isn't worth keeping around.

Also, I found clips below of Gordo calling other parts of Game 163.  I'm guessing Gladden got the call for Casilla's walk-off, and while I've never heard it, I don't really care to.

#1. Mauer's Final Game (Def. Mauer Tags Out Gardner 11-3)

#4. Thome Walks-Off Sox (Def. Arraez Pinch-Hit Walk 10-3)

#6. Baker's Near-Perfecto (Def. Lineout DP, Game 163 9-4)

#2. Casilla Drives Home Gomez (Def. HR Record, 11-2)
