The Super Bowl being in town has revealed Minnesota Twins Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey’s fatal flaw.
The Minnesota Twins‘ Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey has had a chance to interact with the national media while the Super Bowl is in town. However, his fatal flaw: he’s supportive of both teams!
While most of America that is not a Patriot fan has reason to cheer against the New England Patriots and all Minnesotans have 38 unanswered reasons to dislike the Philadelphia Eagles, Falvey revealed in an interview with Mike Berardino that he has reasons to support both teams.
In the article, Falvey discusses his opportunity through his previous position in Cleveland to get to know the front office of the New England Patriots, though the staff member he was closest with is now with the team who blew a huge lead to lose to the Patriots in last season’s Super Bowl, the Atlanta Falcons.
He also had a chance to get to know the Philadelphia Eagles GM Howie Roseman through his work with the Indians and found himself very impressed with the Eagles’ work to maximize their players’ performances and recovery through specialized programs for each player.

Clearly, someone who cannot make up his mind on a simple football game cannot be trusted to sign major free agents that will impact the future of the club, can he?!
Thank goodness we have Thad Levine to balance out this craziness. Heck, he even stated that he would look forward to the opportunity to talk shop on building a team with universally-disliked Bill Belichick!
I mean, what’s he going to want to do next? Trade Karl-Anthony Towns to the Lakers? Ship off Eric Staal to the Dallas Stars? Sell off Goldy Gopher to the University of Wisconsin?!
To truly serve Minnesota sports, you need to dislike who we dislike as well!!
Okay, this was done in farce, but in all seriousness, if Falvey is taking his lessons on how to win from a guy like Belichick, the Twins may be in for a very bright future!
