LaTroy Hawkins says Tommy Kahnle “one of the worst teammates I’ve ever had in my life.”

Former major league reliever LaTroy Hawkins pitched for a lot of teams, two of which were the Twins and Rockies. As it happened, the Twins were in town to visit the Rockies. Hawkins, now a member of the Twins’ broadcast team, told a story on air about he and former teammate Tommy Kahnle got into a fight back in 2014 when the latter was a rookie. Hawkins’ partner, Dick Bremer, tried to create a way for him to sugarcoat what he said, but Hawkins didn’t bite, calling Kahnle “one of the worst teammates I’ve ever had in my life.”

LaTroy definitely needs to give some more details.

If I recall, LaTroy is totally beloved in the game.

Not by me, he should never have worn Dan Pasqua's number.

Gotta be about a woman, right? What else would a guy hold a grudge about for this long?

Tommy Kahnle was the Rockies' closer for a week in 2015, when the team burned through about five of them.

If LaTroy Hawkins hates you, you must really be a horrible person.

He definitely has had a lot of teammates!

I wonder who has had the most teammates in MLB.

I wonder who has had the most teammates in MLB.

Mike Morgan might be a good place to start looking. 22 years with 13 different clubs, counting his two stints with the Cubs separately.

Anna Benson?

Wow, there's a name I haven't heard in a while. I guess she's retired and in the hot/crazy former player's wives hall of fame.

Stick Cindy Sandberg in there as well. We only know Anna threatened to sleep with teammates - Cindy actually did.
