When Guerrier was quoted saying "This is where I want to be." I found it touching and I was proud to be a Twins fan.
There are two basic types of responses regarding satisfactory workplaces.
(1) "I work with a lot of smart, talented people and get to do interesting things almost every day. I feel like I am constantly challenged to become the best I can be. My co-workers do good work and I am glad to work with them, but we also hold each other accountable for poor performance. I learn from my manager, who constantly puts us in position to do well. We use cutting-edge tools, which regularly causes me to learn new things and rethink how to do my job well. I feel like I am contributing to a success."
(2) "The people here are so nice. I like how we do things and feel like working here enables me to have a comfortable life. We want to do well, but not at the expense of relationships. My manager is easy-going and doesn't put too much pressure on me. We don't change things too much, so once I learn how to do something, I can be comfortable that I will be able to continue in the same manner. I feel like my manager is loyal to me, so I feel loyal to my manager. On Fridays, there's cake!"
It seems like a lot of the players that prefer playing for the Twins these days fall into the second answer. All of the players that have chosen to play here over the last few years either don't have a track record of winning and/or have had a lack of success in their most recent years. Players who still have something to offer and/or want to win look elsewhere, even if the money is worse, e.g., Garza and A.J. Once the team re-establishes a winning culture, more players who like the first answer will start coming here.
