ALL IN THE FAMILY FOR THE MINNESOTA POHLADS
The sons of Twins Owner Carl Pohlad are, in fact, interested
in owning the team, diminishing speculation that the Twins would
be sold, according to this morning's Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE.
Jim Souhan reports that, contrary to public opinion, Pohlad's
sons -- Bob, Jim and "to a lesser extent," Bill -- have recently
taken a more active role with the team. According to some Twins
execs, Bob Pohlad, in particular, has become a "key figure,"
taking on increasing responsibility especially in the Twins'
pursuit of a new stadium. Though Carl Pohlad denies rumors of a
possible sale, maintaining, "We're not even thinking about
anything than a new stadium," Souhan notes other owners have made
similar claims before selling (STAR-TRIBUNE, 3/19).
