just saw on sportscenter that twins gm terry ryan is stepping down. if jocketty leaves at the end of the season, should the cards try to get ryan?
from the report, it sounds like ryan doesn't want to get out of baseball, necessarily; he specifically, for whatever reason, wanted out of minnesota. i consider minnesota as one of the teams, along with the a's and marlins, to have had the most success with the least money over the past several years. the cards aren't in the same bad situation as the twins are, monetarily, but dewitt does seem to have a pretty solid limit on the money the cards can spend.
it's my opinion that, if lajocketty leaves, ryan would be a great new gm and would further the cards' move toward a focus on scouting and player development, which, given the limit on salary expenditures, is what they need to do. what say you?
