Bye Bye, Bill Smith

News Item: Twins fire GM Bill Smith
For the first time in my lifetime, the Twins have fired a general manager. Howard Fox was kicked upstairs, while Andy MacPhail and Terry Ryan both ended their tenures voluntarily. Ryan, now, is back as interim GM.
True, the team had an awful year and just about every major move of his tenure- the Santana trade, Garza-for-Young, Ramos-for-Capps, and numerous other hits- have been disastrous. But not only was Smith not fired right after the season, but there wasn’t even many rumors that he’d be gone.
Will things change? Who knows- the team had lots of success back when Ryan was in charge, but then again, the Twins’ organizational philosophy is pretty much the same no matter who is in charge, so who knows.
