    Bingo. The Twins are a classic insider's society. Today's decision (what am I saying? this was decided months ago) to retain all staff will provide barriers to the development to those considered...

    Cleveland fans are on Line 1 with a rebuttal.

    But I love your unfounded enthusiam, Thegrin. Let's meet back here on TD after the 2014 season and compare our predictions.
  3. Can I ask for a moratorium on this strawman...

    Can I ask for a moratorium on this strawman argument.? We aren't just saying that Gardy hasn't won in the playoffs, it's that the team didn't even appear competitive in the playoffs. We did not...

    I'm really questioning if ALL of them are being asked. We might just be hearing from "Gardy's guys."

    Seth, I'm just asking, but did you ask or observe the responses of Arcia, Pinto, Florimon or any of the non-white players? Seems like the local boys and the southern guys always get to speak for the...

    No need for a question mark on that, my friend. Terrible day for Twins Baseball. A few predictions for the next two years ...

    1) Buxton, Rosario, Sano and other Twins top prospects will...

    This will be a test of my ability to read Ryan's signals. I'm not an insider by any means, but I say the evidence suggests that this "wait and see" stuff is just cover, and that Ryan has already...

    I understand that those of us who want changes in the managerial and FO staff have been banging our drum pretty loudly lately, and I apologize if I've put people off with my comments. But I'd just...
  9. It appears that Gardy's extension is already a...

    It appears that Gardy's extension is already a done deal. Ryan is referring directly to Gardy's role on the 2014 squad already in interviews:

    Minnesota Twins have plenty of 'issues' in 91st loss...

    These recent interview snippets continue to disturb me. Ryan uses distancing language when talking about FA strategy: “There are many different ways to go about accumulating talent." “You [emphasis...
  11. "No one wants them to build a WS contender out of...

    "No one wants them to build a WS contender out of FA"

    I might be alone, but I'd be 100% okay with this. It would signal at least some commitment to success from ownership. But, of course, it...
  12. Cannot believe a WALKING DEAD reference didn't...

    Cannot believe a WALKING DEAD reference didn't get tossed in there. So fitting.
  13. Darn you for wet-blanketing, Hageman. And just...

    Darn you for wet-blanketing, Hageman. And just when I was penning my "Josmil Pinto > Joe Mauer" article. Like you, I hope he proves to be the exception, and produces at a high level for 2014 and...
  14. I recall hitting a point in the late 90's when I...

    I recall hitting a point in the late 90's when I was just done with this team. I completely walked away for about four or five years. I think I'm there again.

    I'm done with this organization. ...
  15. Somebody on TD did some important research on a...

    Somebody on TD did some important research on a post a few months back regarding pitcher K rates before working with Anderson and after. The drop in strikeouts was pretty alarming -- lending...

    Apologies if this is a tangent to your post, but...

    Apologies if this is a tangent to your post, but I'm wondering if MLB will switch to a draft lottery in the future, like the NBA. Maybe it's my perception, but I can't recall seeing so many MLB...

    Negative response? I saw a HUGE positive in the article: if this were 1948, our pitching staff would be kicking a__. Now, where does Ryan park the team's DeLorean?
  18. Wow. Maybe the high-rolling Dodgers just want us...

    Wow. Maybe the high-rolling Dodgers just want us to develop him for them in the 2020's free agent market.

    Any chance we can keep Ryan on staff for minor league free agent signings and trades, but...
  19. Love it. This painful season is now, in even one...

    Love it. This painful season is now, in even one small way, marginally improved. Now if the Twins FO could just stop punching fans in the face ...
  20. Outstanding post. Just outstanding.

    Outstanding post. Just outstanding.
  21. This is as good as it can be said. While a few...

    This is as good as it can be said. While a few of the faces may have changed, the team's culture seems exactly the same. I don't harbor much hope for our highly-touted prospects if they're entering...

    Kid'll probably hit .350 down the stretch for 'em, with 3 dingers. That's just how things are going this year for ex-Twins.

    It won't happen. And it's too bad, because weakening the team right now is actually a net positive with regard to draft pick order. I wouldn't trade Perkins or Pelfry, but I would certainly give...
  24. Thoughtful stuff, but, if I had to predict, I'd...

    Thoughtful stuff, but, if I had to predict, I'd say that the goodbyes are premature. I expect all of the above to be Twins through the end of 2013.
  25. I wish I felt the same way. Ryan says this an...

    I wish I felt the same way. Ryan says this an awful lot, but seems entirely incapable of making the changes to the organization that might make this happen. I'll be stunned if the Twins reach the...
