What bar and perspective are you referring to? .
From the bottom to the top, here are the different settings of the bar:
1- Awful - always finishing toward the bottom one of the worse teams in the majors
2- Mediocre - Hovering around .500
3- Competitive - Having a winning record and ocassionally winning divisions
4- Compatitive in the post season - Winning at least a few post season series, making in to the WS
5 - Champion - Winning the World Series.
Believe me, with the Twins being mostly at 1, a lot of people (Including yourself apparently) are happy with being at 2 and 3, like they have been the Gardenhire years. I understand and respect that opinion even though I do not feel the same way. So please understand that some of us are not ok with 2 and 3 and think that this group of people who are running the Twins are complacent and set the bar at 2 and 3 and they can only get there. Some of us want 4 and 5. You don't agree, but at least respect our opinions and perspective. Now that the organization has turned from 2 and 3 more into 1, a lot more people are unhappy... So it is all about perspective and whether you are ok with being a B and C student or you expect As (to give you another analogy)
