Kudos to you on this well written and supportive article. I agree with you. Go Twins!!!!!!!!!

Your record is good but sometimes you over manage and lose games because of it. But you do deserve manager of the year. I love it when low budget team beat out the yankees sox etc.

With his long term success with the hands he has been dealt, Gardy is the best manager in baseball. Period.

I am profoundly depressed about the state of the US right now and the future is bleak and my cat is very sick. It may sound crazy, but Gardy and the Twins and that new stadium are amazing, they keep me going...Gardy BETTER win the manager of the year this year, or what's left of my faith in humanity will be destroyed.

listen up if you can. The best pinch-hitters reach base via a hit, walk, hit by pitch 4 times out of ten, the worst reach base 3 out of ten times. Is that hard to understand.

Ahh it brings back memories. But don't worry. We have global warming. Haaa ha ha hhhhaaaaa ha haaa. It would be so cool having a foot of snow in the stands wouldn't it. Can anyone say retractable roof? Oh I thought so. Nooooo a straight outdoor stadium is the best. Hearing the sting of the bat. Hey maybe metal bats will soon be adopted to MLB. I don't want to hear any whinning from anyone of you that wanted a stadium with a retractable roof. Sit there and freeze, sweat, get ate up by bugs and enjoy the very few true baseball days during a season. Especially when we are a losing team. Lets see how many of you true baseball fans go there in bad weather cold or hot. Oh now you better be there and don't whine. I will sit and watch you from my warm living room nice and dry. Also don't complain if u go to the game to only find it was rained out and you are out a couple hundred dollars. Oh yes ain't a stadium without a retractable roof great. Go Fans!!!!!!

your pitcher management drove me crazy this season. That having been said, its hard to argue with your regular season success.

It's the kind of stuff that would irritate anyone.

What are "strategical" moves? Must be something along the order of "strategery".

A 100 win season is not out of the question. They to 8-2 in their last 10 games. I know it's not a top priority, but still it would be pretty cool. Gardy most definitely deserves MOTY, and I think he'll get it this year.
