I like this move from the standpoint that I like what Minnesota does with its small budget each year. I think it's largely due to Ron Gardenhire. He's a terrific manager in my view. During Twins batting practice at Comerica one game last year, I saw him in shallow outfield shagging fly balls. I'd be beside myself if I had to lose my top talent every year or so and start over. (Side note, I'd also be freaking mad if I had to play in a dump like the Metrodome. Every time I see the stupid carpet and the baggie, I feel the chunks rising.) So, if Rick Knapp is any part of what's been going on with the Twins, I'm happy as a clam. And bonus, we take away from one of our top divisional rivals.
