uh. WHAT!

Terry Ryan is stepping down as general manager.

We all know we've been VERY annoyed with him this past year.
( IE: Trading Castillo for a couple of double a pieces of crap )
But uhm.
I still love that trade of AJ for Liriano,Boof and Nathan.
That was amazing, really. Mad props Mr. Terry Ryan.

But why leave now?
Do you want us to go under as a team?
I had to say it *long loud sigh*

By opening day of next year all we'll have left is:

Joe Mauer.
Some bags of sun flower seeds and peanuts.
The bat boy.
Juan Rincon.
Nick Punto (b/c he'll never leave as much as all of you would love it if he did)
And Lecroy will be the coach and gm.

I wonder why he left.
Maybe because he has to make a winning team and re sign big players with 100 dollars,two paper clips, a pen ( blue ink, not black ), and a harmonica that Pohlad gave him....thinking he's MacGyver and shit.

I looked up Pohlad in the dictionary.

Pohlad (n):
A money grubbing evil demon BILLIONAIRE from the deep dark depths of the house of hades.

Lets keep in mind it says BILLIONAIRE not MILLIONAIRE. Okay? Ok.

What are your thoughts about this?
I know some people who are happy.
Some who are sad.

Me? I'm just confused. ( what a shock )

I will go with "confused" as well.

Yeah, TR has pissed me off some this year. But I'm not sure his leaving now is going to make anything better.

I really think it is a case of him being sick of trying to make a winning, or at least competitive, team on a really short leash from Pohlad.

I'll just hope for the best, I guess.

Thats all we can do.
Hope for the best and keep our fingers crossed.

Well, THAT and drink cotton candy milkshakes obsessively, walk ONLY clockwise around the outside of the Dome, and wear lucky clothing items.

My list of crazy crazy crazy superstitions is a mile long.

I'll do everything I can to help the new guy out.

I posted a lovely magical bedtime story about Nick Punto. I think you will like it.
