Gardy was managing against a "Real" manager. One who has a clue, knows how to win, get the best out of his players and knows his pitching. Light years from Joe Maddon. Light years.

3 wins, 10 losses at Target Field against the Rays. The Twins should just forfeit their home games against the Rays and spend a nice quiet day at home with their families and save the rest of us the unhappiness. The Rays so outclass the Twins...

Hey Gardy...take a look across the field..that's a real MLB Manager and a real MLB baseball team!! The difference between the 2 organizations is mind-boggling!!

A good example of Gardy's managing skills...the pickoff and subsequent rundown play...haven't seen it performed that poorly since my little league days!! Brilliant execution!!

@freedubay unless my eyes deceive me...Billy Smith was not in the Twins dugout today...Gardy was the one outmanaged....yes I know Billy Smith was out Gm'd by the guy over in Tampa Bay's organization...yes the whole organization over there has out performed and out hustled the Twins...that's some hope for Yankee haters on here...there's another team for you guys to cheer for and follow...atleast after 1 October..
