The Minnesota Twins are struggling this season. Presently sitting in last place of the AL Central with an 11-33 record, their performance has been putrid, making it impossible for even the most optimistic Twins fan to find a silver lining.
So when the club’s TV play-by-play voice Dick Bremer objectively pointed out some of the club’s issues on a recent broadcast, that would have seemed to be a fair point to raise. But being objective didn’t sit well with one individual inside the Twins clubhouse.
During a radio interview with WDAY in Fargo, N.D., Bremer said he was confronted by an unnamed Twins player who was upset by critical remarks the Twins broadcaster made on the air.
“I make it a practice to go in the clubhouse every day and go down on the field, so if a player has a complaint about something I’ve said on television they have that opportunity,” said Bremer. “I was confronted in the clubhouse in the last homestand. I didn’t say what I wanted to say, which was, ‘Well, play better and the commentary will be more positive.’ You can’t mask the fact this team is a quarter of the way through the season with 11 wins.”
