    Is it wrong to be happy about this?

    You beat me to it - was thinking of embedding it in one of the Twins threads.

    Sad when anybody passes, but perhaps the new ownership will open the checkbook up a bit for us?

    He didn't die. He probably sold or traded his soul.

    Eh ... tough crowd in Minnesota. You can complain all you want about Pohlad, but he fielded a perennial contender and won TWO WORLD SERIES TITLES!
    I don't know what you want for an owner. Six division titles and 2 world championships in a quarter century while playing in a small market. I would kill to get two Super Bowl titles from Wilf in 25 years.

    He was the owner of the Twins.

    He did put a contender out there year in and year out - even with a piss poor payroll.
