Hey all. Sorry for the lack of a new entry today, but I do want to direct everyone over to the blog of Joe Posnanski, Kansas City Star columnist and perhaps my favorite blogger in the country. In today's post, he writes extensively about Ron Gardenhire, whom he dubs the game's best manager. I think a few of his points are muddled from not being able to watch the team regularly (one of his main qualifications for a great manager is that "they don’t make a lot of nonsensical moves based on hunches or small sample sizes," which we all know that Gardy is routinely guilty of), but there are a lot of interesting thoughts here and I always enjoy reading the in-depth perspective of an intelligent outsider when it comes to Twins-related subjects.
By the way, if you're not already reading Posnanski's blog on a daily basis, bookmark it. I promise you will not be disappointed.
