Ah yes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The Twins cleaned house (and by cleaned house, I mean wheeled the garbage cans to the curb, because the trash was already in them) and had to make some replacements at first and third base, and replace the bench, bullpen and hitting coaches.
Well, they took the obvious first step of making the bench and hitting coaches...
