Twins will decide on Griffith until next week

MINNEAPOLIS (Sep 17, 1998 - 11:19 EDT) -- The Minnesota Twins won't decide until at least next week how they will respond to Clark Griffith's $110 million offer to buy the team.

Owner Carl Pohlad, president Jerry Bell and team accountant Bob Starkey all were in Milwaukee for baseball's owners meetings Wednesday. They were to remain there today, and Bell won't return to the office until Tuesday.

That's when he, Starkey and Jim Pohlad, one of the owner's three sons, will study Griffith's offer.

"They'll be getting back together next week and will make some recommendation to Carl as to what he should do," said Twins spokesman Dave St. Peter.

Griffith, whose father sold the team to Pohlad for $38 million in 1984, said only that he was glad the Twins had a timetable for reviewing his offer.
