    Crowdsourcing: Do you know who he is?

    Earlier this week from the minor league fields at Fort Myers. '87 and '91 rings on. Does not ring a bell. At all. Does anyone know who this gentleman is?

    Thanks.

    No. Krivsky is younger.

    Sorry, link only, won't post. Looks even more like him.

    NP. Might have made the connection sooner but he's sporting a more modern 'do.

    Looks like retirement didn't last very long. Not that they've officially brought him back, but I'll go out on a limb and guess that they're still as interested in what he has to say as he is in how his prospects turn out.

    So with Rantz still around, how do we expect this guy (and I am not talking about Rasmussen) to do his job?

    Yeah, there's a fine line between drawing on the predecessor's corporate knowledge and making the new guy feel like he's on probation the first year.

    Didn't Steil take over minor leagues in 2012?

    who is the guy with Rasmussen? That's not Brad Steil.

    And, Steil can do his job just fine. Tom Kelly is always around and it doesn't effect Gardy.

    I thought it was Steil. My bad.

    Anyone has any idea who that is?

    You and I were on the same page Thrylos as far as who the guy in the picture is.

    I'm not sure how the system works with Steil and Rantz, but the Twins' minor league system has been producing really well over the last few years. Whatever works.
