No surprise regarding the relationship between Slowey and Diamond. 1.) Kevin Slowey is a great guy. I've had a chacne to get to know him since 2005 after the Twins drafted him, and he's always been terrific. He didn't handle the situation well last year, but the Twins handled it terribly too. He does a lot in the community and for people. 2.) Like Slowey, Diamond is a very, very smart person. Very intellectual. Remember the article earlier in the year about how into the GREEN efforts they both are. They're very close.

one takeaway for me is that Vavra and Anderson may be doing a better job than some people might have surmised.
You can rest assured that nearly all of those people will continue to surmise that, too.
It's rare to get to hear athletes actually speak at any length in any meaningful way. As fans, it's refreshing. Post-game interviews filled with cliches are typically the best we get. Sometimes when we get a glimpse at more, the result is finding out that there isn't much going on. Other times we find a guy who comes off as intelligent and thoughtful and interesting and witty. Glad someone recapped this for us. Wish I had gotten to hear or see the entire thing.

Thanks for the report. The problem is that these ARE the 2 success stories so I would anticipate them having positive remarks about Anderson and Vavra. In fact, since most people aren't stupid enough to publicly diss their employer, i would expect most Twins to say good things about the managment and coaching staff. I'm just not sure how much that says about their overall job performance.
