Last week saw the shocking announcement that Minnesota Twins General Manager Terry Ryan had been fired from his duties with the organization. While at the helm as GM from 1995-2007 and then from 2012-2016, he saw the Twins to four American League Central Division Championships, finished second and third place twice each, finished fourth four times and finished in last place five times. This season, the Twins appear to be headed to another last place finish which cemented Ryan’s fate.
When I look at Ryan’s tenure as GM, I see plenty of good, as well as plenty of bad. Let’s take a look...

If there’s one thing about Bryan Cranston’s career that stands out, it’s the variety of roles he takes on. From sitcom dad in Malcolm in the Middle to meth dad in Breaking Bad to President Lyndon B.

In 2016, we’ve had four animated family films about anthropomorphic animals going on wacky adventures (Norm of the North
, Angry Birds
, Finding Dory
). Most of their plots touch on familiar ground. Granted, some did it better than others, and I wouldn’t blame you if you felt fatigued by now, wishing another studio could bring something fresh to the table. While I can’t say that The Secret Life of Pets
