Continued: Reusse: Twins and timid intersect too often

As a Twins season-ticket holder, I would almost take that trade-off — blundering in an attempt at creativity — rather than always being stuck in the mode, “That’s a chance we don’t want to take … too pricey.’’

The Wild can go the next five years without getting out of the first round of the playoffs and no one will ever say it’s because owner Craig Leipold didn’t try, because he signed Ryan Suter and Zach Parise.

Vikings owner Zygi Wilf can complete his coup of getting a billion-dollar stadium while spending none of his own money, and we’ll always be OK with it because he spent large to bring in Jared Allen and Brett Favre.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has operated a hapless organization, but not because he’s cheap; he gave Kevin Garnett that record-breaking contract, remember?

As for the Twins, just once it would be soothing to hear, “The competition for Miguel Gonzalez was stout, but the Twins got him. The Twins went outside the roster and went big.’’

 

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500
