Interesting tidbit in this article, as the Twins had a chance to draft Mike Mussina in 1991, but chose to draft someone else. If only... :cool:

Looks like he saw the same thing I did when it came to their pitchers. But injuries might be more to blame for their draft failures. It really is amazing how quickly they could fall from a team that was going to be a power (after 2009) to the trademark 'perpetual losers.' A few bad trades, injuries to their high-priced star players and not enough talent in their vaunted farm system, and you have this mess.

From 2001 to 2010 with the exception of flat out releasing David Ortiz, basically every move the Twins made worked out.

I know they won the division in their first year outside of the dome but you would figure that not being able to build a team around that crappy stadium would level the playing field. Since the Twins moved out of the dome the Sox are 9-9 at Minnesota.

The Twins' pitching and defense are bad? Gee whiz, I thought they were the most fundamentally sound team in the league.

The Twins are crappy. They are perpetual losers.

This needs to be on a tee shirt. It never gets old.

They switched General Managers. That solves everything. Ask Cub fans.

They switched General Managers. That solves everything. Ask Cub fans.They switched BACK to the general manager under whom they were successful. That's different.
