After a 17-3, 1.90 ERA season spread out between the A and AA levels in the Yankees organization in 1981, Filson was the key prospect in the trade that sent Butch Wynegar and Roger Erickson to New York in 1982.  He had some decent seasons on some horrible Twins teams, but never quite did live up to the hopes of Twins fans.  Of course I knew nothing of those expectations as a five year old.  I simply knew him as one of the better pitchers on the team.
