Article: Ryan back in GM role as Twins replace Smith
This is the move that needed to happen. I was cheering for anything less than 100 losses this year, and luckily the Twins were able to stick with only 99 losses and a terrible, wasted season of disappointment, injury, and false hopes.
Getting Terry Ryan back, one of the architects of the run of competitive Twins teams from 2001 – 2010. Most of the players on those teams were brought in by Ryan in some way, and now he’s back in the driver’s seat.
There is a ton of work to do for a team that lost 99 games, but he’s done it before. Right now he carries the “interim” label, but don’t be surprised if Terry Ryan is around for a while. Let’s hope he can turn things around again.
