You have no chance for a third straight year, but Jim and Bob Pohlad aren’t their dad, and there’s a huge nut to crack in Target Field. If you figure in the difference in going from receiver to payer of revenue sharing, it’s roughly $60 million more expensive than operating in the Dome.
This generation of the family proved after the 2011 season, in firing Bill Smith as general manager, that it no longer can be loyalty above all else with the Twins.
That’s why you were sent into this season without an extension, and that’s why Ryan would be a pal if he would get together with you on return from New York on Sunday and say, “It doesn’t look good for 2014, Gardy. What do you want to do?”
As an admirer, I think you deserve that opening from the Twins, rather than being made to suffer another death march.
Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500.
