Why was Andrew Albers really sent to the KBO?

Ed Zurga

Shortly before Andrew Albers had his contract sold to the KBO, an anonymous source reported hearing the following conversation between Minnesota Twins GM Terry Ryan and Albers.

RYAN
Andrew? Would you come here for a moment, please?

ALBERS
I'm sorry. I was late. I was having lunch.

RYAN
I need to talk about your strikeouts.

ALBERS
Really? I had 13 in August.

RYAN
Well, ok, 13 is minimum, ok?

ALBERS
Ok.

RYAN
Now, it's up to you whether or not you want to just do the bare
minimum. Well, like Kershaw, for example, had 36 strikeouts. And a
terrific smile.

ALBERS
Ok. Ok, you want me to get more strikeouts?

RYAN
Look. Andrew.

ALBERS
Yeah.

RYAN
People can watch baseball anywhere, ok? They come to Target Field
for the atmosphere and the attitude. That's what the strikeouts are about.
It's about fun.

ALBERS
Ok. So, more then?

RYAN
Look, we want you to express yourself, ok? If you think the bare
minimum is enough, then ok. But some people choose to get more strikeouts and we
encourage that, ok? You do want to express yourself, don't you?

ALBERS
Yeah. Yeah.

RYAN
Great. Great. That's all I ask.

ALBERS
Ok.
