    Goessling: Ryan perplexed by Wimmers' injury

    http://www.twincities.com/twins/ci_2...mmers-injury-i

    "I don't quite get it," Ryan said. "I'd like to think we can diagnose and make sure we know what's going to go on, but we're not going to let him go any farther until we figure this out."

    Well, the optimist in me sees this as a final straw in Ryan's evaluation and will lead to changes.

    I'd be interested in knowing what the Twins doctors' opinions are on rest/rehab for partial UCL tears vs. surgery.

    It sure seems like every time we try rest and rehab it only kicks the can down the road, and could potentially damage the ligament even more in the short-term.

    What more evidence do you need to see that this organization needs a major overhaul in the FO?

    I'm certainly perplexed, but it's not by Wimmers' injury.

    Everytime something negative happens you idiots think an overhaul is needed in the front office. It's pretty obvious TR doesn't like what happened here. Did TR diagnose this? Did TR hurt Wimmers arm? Did TR tell Liriano to pitch like crap to start the season so his value would be garbage? Give him a chance to turn this around, HE HAS A PROVEN TRACK RECORD PEOPLE!!!!!

    The front office is broken...the scouts, medical team, coaching staff and just about everything that could go wrong with this teams front office has.

    But nevermind the proven track record in the last five seasons or so of the poor handling of a large amount of injuries, not being able to correctly utilize the DL, trying to rest and rehab someone with a partically torn UCL (that does not heal itself), or publicly smearing people for being soft that end up having serious arm injuries, or the thought that their coddling ways have actually resulted in more and not less injuries. Other than that...

    So it should only take about 7-8 years for JR to turn this thing around, based off his proven track record.

    TR said he was going to address the training and medical staff issues during his first presser last fall but he failed to do so.

    TR HAD a great track record over 10 years ago but he and his scouting department have done a terrible job of scouting and drafting for the last 10 years.

    Usually, perjorative name-calling along with massive overuse of caps indicates that you are on the losing side of the argument, but don't let me stop you from more in-depth analysis of how well the proven track record for the managment of this club has been over the last 7 years.

    Actually, those calling for a front office overhaul probably came to that conclusion long before Wimmers needed surgery.

    Also... Ryan is going to have to deal with both higher expectations for this club and decreased patience from fans to get the ship righted. We're not in the Metrodome anymore and we can only blame Bill Smith for so long.

    Ryan promised two things: 1) to evaluate the performance of those involved in the medical arena, and 2) to improve communication on medical matters.


    He's doing exactly what he promised.


    But of course, thrylos, you can't help yourself and want to portray it falsely. How do you live with being so dishonest?

    I postively endorse this message, even if I'm not sure of its exact meaning.
    Lighten up Francis....

    Would rather they show ANY results from a guy rehabbing that worked

    I'd like to second this statement. To me, TR seems fed up with the poor outcomes from rehab. I have a hard time blaming injury decisions on the F.O. moreso than the medical staff. Even Texas' genius F.O had Neftali Feliz sitting on the DL for a couple months before he was slated to get TJ.

    I am starting to believe the Twins organization needs an overhaul as well. I still think Terry Ryan and Ron Gardenhire are decent baseball people, but when individuals are in an organization for so long they can get stuck in a rut which is where I think we are now.

    Personally, I would love to see Terry Francona brought in to manage next year, but I doubt it happens.

    Wow, kick a guy who hasn't even posted in this thread?

    Perhaps Ryan has accomplished the 2 goals stated above. I think the frustration in this thread stems from the assumed outcome of the statetd goals. Fixing the problem with the medical evaluations. If that outcome has been achieved than goal two was not accomplished because no solution has been communicated to the public.

    Wow, major news flash in Minnesota, TR has seemed to come around to being "fed up about poor outcomes from rehab". Last time I checked, the medical staff answers to the FO, so that one's a non-starter too. As I posted in the other thread, there was plenty of egg on the face for management from the Scott Baker fiasco last March. Do you have any grasp at how lame it sounds to start going public about being fed up about poor outcomes about the medical/training situation at this late date?

    This is Ryan's first year back at the helm, last time he was GM they weren't having these issues with the medical team. I agree changes need to be made, but what is he supposed to do? Fire everyone in the middle of the season? I imagine a lot of these doctors have contracts with the team as well, hopefully he evaluates what is wrong during the off-season, fire who needs to be fired and make the changes that need to be made.
