Old home week continued as another dearly departed Twins star returned to Target Field to wax nostalgic and scheme for a return trip to the postseason in a different uniform.

Whereas Hunter headed west in 2008, Nathan's homecoming as a member of the defending American League champions stirred fresh memories of his seven-year run as the anchor of Minnesota's bullpen, from which he saved a club-record 260 games and helped lead the Twins to four AL Central Division titles.
