MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The search has begun for a new manager of the Minnesota Twins for the first time in 13 years. After four straight seasons of at least 92 losses, the mandate to find a fresh perspective in the dugout has been made clear.
"We're going to change the voice and change the presence," general manager Terry Ryan said.
This is an organization that has historically promoted from within. In discussing Ron Gardenhire's dismissal this week, both Ryan and team President Dave St. Peter acknowledged their belief in the benefits of hiring an internal candidate. Can the Twins do that and steer the team new direction at the same time?
