  1. Based on what verifiable evidence? Or is this just an example of very sour grapes coming through?
  2. I couldn't agree more with Doc's comments. I've lived well away from Minnesota since the season of our 1st WS win in 1987 and about all I ever hear about the Pohlad family originates on this site and other Minnesota-centric sources, same as Doc. And I take many of those comments and opinions with a grain (or two) of salt. I've personally never really had any significant issues with how the Pohlads have run the franchise since they bought it from the Griffith family. I know that there are some out there with a dim view of their ownership. They're definitely entitled to there own opinions but I, for one, have never seen or heard verifiable corroborating evidence that supports some of their opinions. Maybe elevating Joe will help elevate the appeal of the team to a younger fan base and maybe some of the more cynical of the older fan base, too. However, only time will tell there. I'm anxious to see how this all plays out.
  3. I would hope to also see greater organizational depth (and skill) throughout the system. While it's clear that injuries were a clear problem this season, what was most telling to me was that it often appeared as though many of "next man up" types were clearly not up to the challenge for any significant stretch of games. In my mind, that also clearly needs to change rather significantly for the better if we want to take major steps forward in the near future.
  4. "Major league-caliber, at this point in time", might be a more accurate descriptor.
  5. I don't know about that, but the roster, as it currently stands, is collectively not major league-caliber. Not even close.
  6. Well, they certainly have numerous examples of that exact same scenario playing out this season. When we load the bases. it seems like the opponent has us right where they want us, because they know that the chances of us scoring under those circumstances is somewhere between slim and none.
