It sounds like the changes go further than we thought just a few minutes ago...

Based off of several tweets and the upcoming press release, it sounds like every single member of the coaching staff has been either fired or reassigned. Save manager Ron Gardenhire and pitching coach Rick Anderson.

Add Scott Ullger to the same list as former hitting coach Joe Vavra. Both have been reassigned to instructional positions, which Ullger taking the outfield and Vavra the infield. Head trainer Rick McWane will not have his contract renewed, thus ending his tenure in Minnesota.

Which is singularly the best thing that Terry Ryan did today.

I'm off to walk the dog and have something to eat, but we'll digest all of today's moves later this evening. For now, think about this: today's moves have culminated in the biggest shakeup the Minnesota Twins organization has seen in my lifetime...and, based on our readership, probably a lot of your lifetimes, too.

Today's moves may not fix all of this organization's issues, but they are not insignificant. We'll get into this a bit more later.
