The Pohlad family starring their favorite puppet Terry

The Twins are now 6-17 and it's not a fluke, it's a small dose of reality. Terry Ryan had plenty opportunities in the offseason to improve this team, especially the pitching staff, and didn't do it. Examples? Erik Bedard, 1 yr $4.5 mil. (Same as Matt Capps is being paid this year) would've instantly become our best starter, but wasn't on Terry Ryan's radar. Chris Capuano, who we made a feeble effort (low balled him so he signed elsewhere) is 3-0 with an era that our current pitchers can only dream about. Bartolo Colon, Edwin Jackson, Roy Oswalt, etc. In the interest of not making this 5 pages long, I'll skip others and won't even address our lack of bullpen additions but if anyone wants to throw out a challenge I'd be more than happy to tell you how Terry Ryan failed miserably in all areas. But, bottom line, Terry Ryan is the puppet of the Pohlad family who only care about personal financial gain and don't care if the Twins win 50 games or 100 as long as they can keep butts in seats enough to keep making as much money as possible.
