    I read that a big company was upset with a unconfirmed information leak. I've heard rumors that other big companies have reacted the same way.

    Yes, reinforcing the suspicion that this is a team sorely in need of p.r. fundamentals!

    This was an easy win, turned into a minor debacle. It's not like we're talking about Worley. Once LENIII's leak on Gibson appeared, the inner circle needs to get on the same page (I assume they have each other's phone numbers) and in this case, immediately own it: "Yes, Gibson will be our fifth starter. He's had a great spring and we're confident he is ready to contribute," said Antony.

    Done.

    Being a Twins fan is hard work these days--they should pay us, not the other way around

    98.5% of Twins fans will never know or care about this PR 'disaster'. Folks like those who post on this board are the only ones who will care.

    I think what the previous poster said was "minor debacle". An organization tends to wish to jealously guard and control the "message" intended for public consumption- and a decision such as this does have a significant effect on the players and agents involved.

    Judging by how publicly upset that the Twins management has been in reaction to this development, I'd say the TD posters were not the only ones who cared.

    Sounds like the Twins thought they had an agreement about what to print and when to print it--and it got printed "too soon".
