Meh. 13 years is a long time. I don't doubt hes a good manager, but sometimes you need a change.
Agreed here. It's probably time for some new blood. The Twins have had two managers over 30 years and from the same line. They got rid of coaches in the past, at some point you have to change the common denominator.
I was reading somewhere that he was only the 4th or 5th manager to have four consecutive 90-loss seasons. He hadn't won a playoff game since 2004.
Just because he's a great manager, that doesn't mean he should continue in perpetuity. 99% of the time, these guys don't leave on good/their own terms, most don't have Bobby Cox type sendoffs.
