    That is where we are in complete agreement. Except I am unclear as how TR will mote an offseason to male the team...

    I'm sorry, those were just interesting typos. I'm not trying to be a dick.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    The real problem with the past offseason was that our offense/defense was what Ryan decided to target, and he did a kick-a$$ job of that, signing Carroll (defense), Doumit (versatility/offense), Willingham (oh my gawd offense) for relative bargains. Of course, all of us that were hoping 2011 was just an aberration have had a sore wake-up call this year, even with the relatively high number of bright spots that have developed over the year. The thing is, it is hard to both "rebuild" (not that the Twins like to use that word) and compete in the same year, but the deals that Ryan made in the offseason were supposed to be a balance of the two. Now that we have a fairly reliable offense who is clearly capable of wiping the floor of "competitive" teams like Cleveland is supposed to be, Ryan can focus more on signing/trading for major league pitching/high level minor league prospects that we so desperately need. I would say give him AT LEAST one more year before throwing Ryan under the bus, because Smith didn't leave us with a great farm system to have hope in.

    The part of the farm system Smith is accountable for is the strongest part of the system....
