So, basically, when all is said and done the Good 'Ole Boy Twins Frat House stays in tact as nepotism is again given precedence over professionalism. The Pohlads are a joke onto themselves.

This is actually the best Twins news I have heard in a long time. If they are not getting rid of BS, surrounding him with more capable people is the next best thing.

All I want to know is who is calling the shot's on trades? If it's still Bill Smith this hire does nothing to improve the Twins.

The Twins had better do something as it is obvious Bill Smith and his cronies have been completely "fleeced" not only with trades but in regards to evaluating their own "in-house" talent! Maybe Krivsky can help, otherwise Target Field could just as well be remodeled into a large outdoor waterpark! Wisconsin Dells in the middle of downtown Minneapolis?

The Twins' front office is inept. Anyone and everyone who was a part of the Ramos, Hardy, and Yong deals should be FIRED. No matter how good Krivsky might be, he can't possibly compensate for the rest of the front office.

Krivsky will be a great addition. He will give the front office the player evaluator it needs allowing Smith to concentrate on his strength, the business side.

"All worked with Krivsky for years and would welcome him back into the fold." This is WHY this is mediocre idea. The Twins front office needs someone who will kick them right in their smug complacency.

Krivsky is a band-aid .... when they need a scalpel.

Mediocrity is the best we can expect from the present owners. What a waste of a new stadium. Is there any wonder that Minnesotans do not want to repeat that mistake with the out of state owners of the Vikings.

The Pohlads are a joke onto themselves. /////////////////// This goes out to everybody on here that just wants to complain. Please tell us what you would do to fix the Twins. FYI: simply saying "fire Smith"; or "kick them right in their smug complacency" is not fixing the team. My point is, I'm fairly certain none of you here know what to do either. And please don't post "sign an ace". That's another generic comment that people like to post all the time.
