Soon, what we all already know will be announced, that Andy MacPhail, who ran the Twins and the Chicago Cubs, will be in charge down at the warehouse. The word is that he will have a fair amount of autonomy in running the club. That has to make Mike Flanagan and Jim Duquette, the guys who were making personnel decisions, somewhat nervous. But it also means for the fans that a single person, with more authority than Flanagan and Duquette combined, will be making the key decisions not only on who will be on the roster but also formulating a strategy about the amount of money to spend and how. MacPhail is both a baseball guy and a money guy. He served with owner Peter Angelos on MLB's negotiating committee in talks with the players union.
