    Re: Carl Pohlad passes away.

    As much as I disagreed with how he ran the Twins (which was actually very well run from a business standpoint) it is sad that an owner that saw two pro championships under his watch pass away.
    I'm glad he brought back guys like Mauer and Morneau and put quality on the field quite often.
    Hopefully the next generation of Pohlads can continue with some good baseball and championships in the new stadium to honor Car's legacy.
    I am also thankful for the product that entertains me every year from spring to fall in Twins Territory.

    Re: Carl Pohlad passes away.

    Well, he bought the team from Calvin Griffith in 1984 and won a world series 3 years later. If anyone here would rag on him while thinking giving Ziggy a pass....

    If anybody can remember back to when Griffith owned the team they should thank their lucky stars Pohlad bought them.

    He didn't overspend on players and he sent many that I liked away but he had a great organization that got more out of their talent dollar for dollar than any other franchise I know.

    Hell, 2 world championships in the past 21 years is something no other franchise in town can say. Hell, no other major franchise in the state has even 1. That is pretty sad.
