The Twins got swept out of the playoffs after a regular season that had its ups and downs, but ultimately ended in a division win. The team's management responded by exercising its option on Torii Hunter, a sign that for the most part, they like the team they have and want to see if they can build on this year's successes.

The Twin-killing As got swept out of the playoffs after a regular season that had its ups and downs, but ultimately ended in a division win. The team's management responded by firing its manager, Ken Macha, a sign that they plan on looking different next year after too many years of playoff frustration.

Maybe the Twins are being complacent, or maybe the As are overreacting. (Or maybe the flimsy parallel I was trying to draw between them was completely specious.) Either way, the offseason game of Managerial Musical Chairs just got a little more interesting.
