Even though it’s the middle of October and snow isn’t on the ground (yet), hockey season is officially here. In Minnesota, the Wild is off to a 2-0 start and has yet to allow a goal, shutting out Colorado 5-0 in its home opener and then going to Colorado last Saturday and winning 3-0.
It was hard to imagine the Minnesota Twins parting ways with manager Ron Gardenhire.
But four losing seasons have cost him his job, even though the talent pool of his ball-club is well below the standards expected to compete.
While some fans say firing Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire is long overdue, others say they feel torn by loyalty to a manager they genuinely liked as a person. In the past few seasons, as the losses mounted, Gardenhire was most memorable for his fiery exits. But many fans still remember the winning years and the always winning personality.
The Minnesota Twins have decided to part ways with manager Ron Gardenhire, announcing Monday that he will be replaced in 2015. And Gardenhire was not the only departure after the Twins had their fourth straight season of at least 90 losses.
