Twins Management Addresses Season Ticket Holders in Town Hall


“We’re not broke.We’re bent.”

General Manager Terry Ryan and Team President Dave St. Peter addressed concerns,  took questions, and spent over an hour talking about the state of the organization during an active and somewhat contentious Town Hall conference call with season ticket holders Wednesday night. Star Tribune digital editor and MPR Host  Howard Sinker live-tweeted the Town Hall and was gracious enough to share his updates with the readers of Puckett’s Pond. Here are some of the highlights from his live-tweeting. For the full coverage of the Town Hall, I encourage everyone to visit his Twitter page here.

Again, these were just some of the highlights.  I highly encourage you to visit Howard’s Twitter feed for additional updates from Ryan and St. Peter regarding roster, payroll, marketing, and ticket promotions.  I found it to be highly informative.  I will say that no matter how you feel about their answers to these topics and the others covered, credit Terry Ryan, Dave St. Peter, and the Twins organization for having the bravery to open themselves up to questions and comments.  I don’t ever recall something like this taking place.

We at Puckett’s Pond will be covering a lot of these topics and more this offseason, so stay tuned!

Until next time….
