Ryan leaves Twins, no effect on Mariners
Scheduling Note: Dave with Groz moves up a day, and can be heard this afternoon at 2:35 pm on KJR.
Terry Ryan resigns as GM of Twins. ESPN’s write-up here.
I’ve heard him mentioned as a possible Bavasi replacement, but Bavasi’s not going anywhere (unless they keep losing like this and the A’s catch them, maybe). So it doesn’t really matter to us.
The short version: the Twins under Ryan did an amazing job developing players their way, often evaluating them on the basis of criteria I totally disagree with (David Ortiz, for instance, run out of the org for not being their kind of player), did some things badly, but given the constraints they worked under, have to be acknowledged as a tremendous sustained success.
