This guy has done zero to make the team better since he has taken over; well a reach on a couple washed up players that performed better than expected I guess. Other than that the Twins have been on the bad side of every move he has made. Start with his 1st big move, the Johan trade, the argument at the time was based on the lack of market for him, which was BS! He was one of the top starters in BB and a lefty to boot when we traded him, so other teams like Cleveland that traded top starters are stocked with talent from it, but we have Jim Hoey as a barely usable player for a true ACE. Then he trades Bartlet and Garza for a talented player that no one had any patience for, who was then traded for nothing, this amazingly happens when he was about our only RH hitter and he immediately proves the faultiness of the trade by nearly carrying Detroit to the world series. He also traded our top two minor league catchers, one being a top prospect for once again nothing in return worth having, all in order to keep Drew I can't hit Butera and Joe "I can’t stay healthy at Catcher" Mauer. The signing of Ishi was garbage but we'll waste a bunch of playing time next year but freak out when a player with major hitting upside (plouffe) makes mistakes in the field. Our starting rotation is embarrassing, our bullpen is embarrassing and our lineup full of lefties is borderline embarrassing, all this with the Twins being a top 5 team in revenue and a payroll over 100 mil, it is time to fire Smith before we get any worse!!!
