Ryan should be the one to be fired. Actually the Pohlads should be fired if you could fire an owner, sadly we cannot

No plans to fire "Gardy"....Ryan has never had a "plan". That's part of the problem.

Just more ignorance/arrogance/spin that Twins fans are to believe that no one else out there could do a better job than back off! This is entering parallel universe territory. Only in Minnesota.

Pohlads "treasure loyalty". I just threw up a little. They treasure cheap employees, the bottom line and appreciating assets. That's what the Pohlads "treasure".

I'd like to see them put TK in there just for 1 season - I bet this squad would contend for the division.

Why am I starting to think of Jim Pohlad as Captain Kangaroo, Terry Ryan as Mr. Green Jeans, and Ron Gardenhire as Dancing Bear? (Those of you who are older might get the analogy).

I just want to know if Billy Smith can locate Jim Hoey who he traded for when we peddled JJ Hardy to Baltimore. Hardy hit his 16th homerun of the season and is a starter on for the American League in next week's All Star Game. Shame on the Pohlad ownership for putting Billy Smith in GM job. Now Terry Ryan has nothing to work with and everyone knows that Gardenhire should be gone. But the Twins Way is to be loyal even to losers like Billy Smith and now Ron Gardenhire.

The Pohlad family is the real villain here. They're the biggest penny pinchers and perhaps the worst owners in all of MLB (or at least close to it). Gardy needs to go, but that won't change the fact that it's the Pohlads who REALLY need to go.

Gardy has been washed up since the end of the 2009 season. Proof you say? Watch Game 1 of the ALDS against vs. the Yankees at Target field. After an early pre-game commercial break the camera from center field zooms in. The Yankees are pumped high fiveing each other in their dugout. Gardy's eyes are in panic peeking out of the near corner of our dugout craping his pants. Meanwhile, all the Twins are seated not talking to each other. "WOW" I said "That's it, we've got no chance" Gardy was done at that moment. We lost the series 0-3, follow by terrible seasons and another in the works.

11 and a half years and Gardy still hasn't "figured" it out? Well, I know Ryan hasn't. Clueless in the Bronx...both he and Ryan.
