First, it's the manager that sets the tone.Billy Martin was a tough guy.Tom Kelly was a tough guy.And both hammered the fundamentals into the players heads.Ron Gardenhire started out that way, but morphed into a "Players Manager".As soon as he put the weight back on and grew a beard last season, he should have been fired. 

 

I see Paul Molitor as an old-school kinda manager.It all starts there.

Joe Maddon?

There's only one way this team can return to contention

Our centerfielder climbs into a tree?  We can't afford to lose any more CFs.

Getting Denard back?

I'd rather have Gomez, but Denard would be a good start.

Joe Maddon?

yeah, I'd rather have a Joe Maddon type than an old school anything.

I studied projections, player models, and then compared it to division opponents.

 

After hours of grueling study and number-crunching, I have determined that this is what it will take to return the Twins to competitiveness in 2015:
