Gardenhire Returns To See Twins Through Troubles

On the day before his 12th season as manager of the Minnesota Twins ended, Ron Gardenhire woke up and came to the ballpark not knowing if he would be back for a 13th year. The Twins were finishing up a third straight dreadful season, limping toward a second straight 66-96 record, and Gardenhire was in the final year of his contract. Minnesota is home for Gardenhire, and the possibility of uprooting and taking his family to another town, to take an offer from another team that surely would have come, was wearing him out. After a 5-1 loss to the Cleveland Indians for defeat No. 95, GM Terry Ryan finally let Gardenhire know of his plans.

Twins Agree To Contract With Swarzak

The Minnesota Twins and right-hander Anthony Swarzak have agreed to a $935,000, one-year contract, avoiding arbitration. Swarzak went 3-2 with a 2.91 ERA in 48 games for the Twins last season. He made all of those appearances out of the bullpen for the first time in his four-year career. In years past, Swarzak was often used as a spot starter when the rotation faltered or someone went down with an injury.

An Interview With Twins’ Ron Gardenhire

The Minnesota Twins are talking to manager Ron Gardenhire about coming back, if he wants to come back. There are a lot of managerial openings projected this offseason. They are negotiating, but the bad news for Gardenhire is that the Twins are so overmatched in talent right now, and there seems to be no light at the end of any tunnel. The teams’ 5-1 loss to Cleveland on Sunday concludes a miserable three-season span, with more than 90 losses in each season.
