Ryan had no chance of keeping his job. They had do do something to keep the wolves at bay.
Ryan has made some bad decisions but with his limited budget that's going to happen. It is a lot more likely that you will make a mistake if you sign Nolasco and Pelfrey than if you are able to sign Max Scherzer.
He has to have young guys get good at the same time and then supplement with middle tier free agents.
Tough to do.
The next guy will have to be really lucky or get a much bigger budget.
This should be a real ship show finding a GM. The Pohlads have hired a search committee. Oh goody. That will solve everything. Now they will have a 100 million dollar payroll and win championships with a new GM.
Meanwhile our heros have finally gotten their heads out of their behinds and become watchable the last month.....which was July, just like this month which is now August.
Some of the young guys are starting to swing the bats.
Since they hit rock bottom in early July, they have been playing some ball.
The Twins do not deserve to be at the fore front of the sports coverage in town but Eye was listening to KFAN on the way in today and they were reliving the Glory Years when Farve was here and the triumphant loss to the Saints in the NFC Championship game. It was like they were proud of the loss and how they were really the better team but they just didn't win.
The Twins have been bad for most of the season but are finally showing signs of being a decent team in the last 30 games.
But drive time radio relives the glory of another Humiliating loss.
