The 2009 AL MVP, who the Twins recently moved from catcher to first base, is in the midst of one of the worst seasons of his career because of back problems. Still, he’s a bona fide star, arguably the biggest the Twins have, and his salary reflects it. In Minnesota grocery stores, you can find his face on boxes of Kemps ice cream sandwiches.
