    For as loyal a soldier as Ryan has been to make this move during the season, there has to be a message behind it.

    Second in tenure among GMs. Who has the most?

    You mean active GMs, right? I'll guess Jocketty.
  6. That's what I was wondering when I read the story. I hate when reporters do that. Don't leave me hanging like that.

    But I did find out twice that Bill Smith has been with the Twins for 22 years.

    From the Strib story:

    He did so with a series of successful trades, starting with the Chuck Knoblauch trade to the Yankees in 1998 that brought them shortstop in Cristian Guzman and lefthander Eric Milton - both of whom were named All-Stars. Milton even pitched a no-hitter.

    More recently, Ryan dealt controversial catcher A.J. Pierzynski in 2003 to the Giants for closer Joe Nathan, lefthander Francisco Liriano and righthander Boof Bonser - one of the more lopsided deals in recent baseball history.

    He did a lot with nothing.

    Is Pohlad gonna tighten the purse-strings again?
