Congrats Parker. Marriage is awesome.
Are we talking about a sex scandal in the Marketing Department of the Minnesota Twins?
Well, Spideyo did say that Ms. Sammon was interested in him, perhaps you're on to something here.
Well, this wasn't what I expected to read (or hoped to read) when I opened this thread.
Just hoping that they demote Dave St. Peter back to marketing and get a new President.
What was wrong with the Twins commercials?
Wow. I would never have thought the marketing folks got the ax too. I thought their commercials were still top notch this past season.
Wait. We're endorsing marriage now? Wtf guys.
I was not a big fan of the 'Deep Twins Thought' commercials last year. I cant remember if they ran any other ad campaign (The Bert/puppets singing ad was for the Minnesota State Lottery). As for why these people were let go, it probably boils down to the higher ups wanted to go in a different direction.
No sarcasm, shockingly I know, from me on marriage, it is a wonderful thing to spend your life with your best friend.....
I have to think about who was pitching for the club (including Bonser, Rincon, Liriano, Nathan, Neshek et. al.) but the words stick with me.
3-2 count, we love the slider
It's about time... these maniacs sawed Johan Santana in half, and he never recovered.
I think people should take a look at what other local big businesses have done in the last few years when times are tight and revenue is down. If there is no foreseeable growth in revenue in the near future, and the company cannot raise expenses to grow their sales, they must cut internal costs and try to maintain the same level of profit that they currently have. I.e. Best Buy... when things got very bad in the economy about 3 years ago, BB was clearing out entire departments and firing people left and right. The first major department to get completely wiped... MARKETING.
The Twins might be doing the same thing here. They don't see any major growth in revenue in next 3-5 years, and the only way the team can afford to bring on new and better plays is to create more money by cutting expenses internally. It is really not fair to the people in that department because they did everything in their power to keep people in the seats. The scouting department, front office, and all-mighty Pohlad boys are the ones that put a horrific team on the field after they pulled a fast one on the general public and convinced them to buy a new stadium for the team. As a long standing season ticket holder and die hard fan of the Twins... this is extremely disappointing. The honeymoon is over guys, it's only a matter of time before the public all stops caring and isn't willing to pay the prices you expect to get.
