Well Doug Mientkiewicz has more emotion and "fire" than Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has had in at least the last 5 to 6 years. Should tell you something about the status of our manager.

wingophers: Well Doug Mientkiewicz has more emotion and "fire" than Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has had in at least the last 5 to 6 years. Should tell you something about the status of our manager. BALLFOUR: And what would that status be? The low-level minor league manager does something that no big-league manager would do, gets in a fight, and that cause has an effect on the status of the big-league manager? I guess you are right. It means that the chances of the guy every Twins' fan loved and wanted in Minneapolis instead of David Ortiz is a long, long way from a big-league job.

Double Baseball does have a temper and passion

The Twins have no leadership on the field or in the dugout. The team in a brawl situation would all be looking back and forth to see who was going to hit the field swinging. I doubt anyone would scrap on this team. It's probably why you don't see many brush back pitches or going inside. It might upset the opposing team and that's not the Twins way.

@1246pm... not certain if you understand the intracacies of baseball fights, the why to and when to. Would the Twins be a better club if they got into some fights?

That's the most hits Dougie hass had in a game since his rookie season.

Dougie Baseball is back with the Twins?

I've been seeing people rag on Doug Mientkiewicz because there's a "double standard" between disciplining a guy like Sano and Dougie Baseball. What a crock! Sano was vaingloriously pimping his bad self, while Minty Fresh was defending one of his players from being targeted for physical damage. The two situations could hardly be more different. Even so, I'm betting Mientkiewicz won't offer his actions as an example of how to behave. We all know baseball requires a high level of discipline. After all, these are full grown men waving clubs and throwing rocks. Feelings can get hurt out there.

Promote him to manage the AAA team that plays at Target Field.
