Gleeman and The Geek #167: Payroll and Terry Ryan Quotes

This week's "Gleeman and The Geek" episode was recorded at the brand new LynLake Brewery and topics included the Twins' lack of spending, Parker Hageman's lengthy interview with Terry Ryan, how Ron Gardenhire's exit probably happened, the value of outfield defense, fans going from frustrated to angry, playoff payrolls, imagining the Twins as the Vikings, and mailbag questions from listeners.

UPDATE: We spliced in the actual Ryan audio in the interest of fairness, so that everyone can judge for themselves.
