TK 10 out of 10
Now to make it even better announce that the Pohlads have sold the team to competent owners who wish to actually win another World Series, and Gardenhire and his band of clowns have all been fired. now THAT would get a standing ovation!!
I like TK. But it's interesting that we are retiring a jersey for a manager with an overall winning percentage < .500. Of course his post season record is 16-8 with TWO rings! Based on post season record, I don't think we'll be retiring Gardy's number anytime soon!
if baseball is around in a hundred years' time, there won't be enough jersey numbers available, and the concourse will be overcrowded with statues. i wish we'd stop building statues of people and retiring jerseys and such in sports. it is a team game. the only thing that should matter is championships. get a trophy and a ring if you win the world series. hang a banner if you win the world series... or maybe if you win a pennant (league and not just for a division - and, yes, i get that that is what the word "pennant" means). but all of these hall of famers, retired numbers, banners and statues that aren't just for winning a specific championship.... is all nonsense. oh, and bring back the trees.
Great manager who pretty much had some talent to work with, unlike what Gardenhire has now.... Love to relive the 1987 to 1991 years over again..
Don't ever retire that hayseed sunflower seed eating bowler in the dugout's number. Ever.
Great manager. Also perhaps the worst MLB player I've ever seen.
I think I share the opinion of most fans when I say that Gardenhire AND his number should be retired today and his name never spoken in public again.
Sad that this occasion had to occur during such a lost season. I hope for Kelly's sake, the team plays flawless fundamental baseball on Saturday. That would mean more to the man than having his number retired.
It's about time TK gets some kind of recognition. He brought us something we have only dreamed of since the Lakers were here. And he did it TWICE. Congratulations to the Pride of Graceville, Minnesota, raised in the Bermuda Triangle of World Champion Baseball Managers. The area where Tom Kelly, Sparky Anderson, and Terry Francona were all born in a one hundred mile radius ! ! !
