Grizzled vet Mike Jackson was a huge influence on the bullpen of the 2002 Twins, and one of the unsung heroes of that first post-season team of the decade. He teamed with Eddie Guardado, LaTroy Hawkins, and J.C. Romero to give the Twins an elite relief corps that season. (His one-time protege Hawkins is now on the cusp of joining him in the exclusive 1,000 games-pitched club.) Following that memorable season, Jackson elected to retire. After a year off, he resurfaced with the White Sox in 2004 for one final big league season.
