Jonah Keri: What To Do With The Twins?
It looks like Keri kind of ran out of time or ideas with this story. It recaps a bit how the Twins have ended up where they are, though I think we might argue with how much various points are emphasized. Here is the story:
It doesn't really get into what to do now, other than "something drastic." I'd argue the approach should probably be the opposite - this franchise isn't a bold move away from contention. They need to plant a bunch of seeds and water liberally and use what advantages non-contention provides. Maybe the debate on what "drastic" means.
Anyway, I was a little dissappointed in what I considered kind of a somewhat shallow critique with not a lot to add, but it's a national story in a popular web site by a guy I respect, so I'd be interested in others feedback, as well as just draw it to your attention.
