Response to Check the ownership ranking...
Pohlad has kept the Twins together? Uh, there are very few players left from the team that got the state excited about the Twins. Only great trades from Ryan and huge player development have saved this team from mediocrity! Depite their challenges, the Twins are perennial contenders and that's why I love them! Now that we have a new stadium, what will Pohlad's excuse be when he doesn't resign Santana and Morneau? Nothing. It will be a rip off and we should take the stadium back.
- David Ortiz gone (DUMB CHEAP MOVE)
- Mienkeivitz gone
- Jones gone
- Koskie gone
- Eddie Guardado gone
- Eric Milton gone
- Brad Radke gone
- LaTroy Hawkins gone
- Rick Reed gone
- JC Romero gone
- AJ Pierzynski gone
- Guzman gone
- Rivas gone
- Bobby Kielty gone (and so is Shannon Stewart who we traded him for)
- Matt Lawton gone
The Metrodome sucks but the ranking has nothing to do with the stadium. It has to do with having a horrible boring team with no franchise players. From 1998-2005 the team was ranked high and the dome had electricity no other stadium had.
The team has been awful now for most of the decade. When the team wins the dome is fun and the atmosphere is great.
