A No. 2 is hired

With the World Series over and the prohibition on major personnel announcements lifted, the Twins on Thursday confirmed what had been reported earlier: Thad Levine of the Texas Rangers front office will be the No.2 in the reconstructed Minnesota operation.

Derek Falvey's title is "executive vice president/director of baseball operations." Levine's in "senior vice president / general manager."

Titles are one thing, responsibilities are another. Levine's title is basically a match for that of the fired Terry Ryan, but the authority Ryan carried belongs now to Falvey. 

The Twins plan an introductory press conference with Falvey and Levine on Monday. Perhaps we'll get a sense of how the responsibilities will be divided, and what other changes are in store for the front office.

And then they can get to work.
