Good story on Yogi.

The Twins do have Spanish speakers in the dugout now.  Even have a Latino coach—Bobby Cuellar, but he is bullpen coach and can do little during a game.  We have many young Latinos, primarily D.Rep and Venezuelans, who, imo, would greatly benefit from mentoring beyond what an interpreter (or a bullpen coach) can provide. I didn't think this up on my own {#Lol}, it's been a publicized observation around here for a while.

He also juiced when he was playing alongside McGwire and Canseco. I like him fine but he makes some odd mistakes.

I have a feeling Milwaukee and WSox will have openings this year and/or next. Gardy likes the Midwest. He may take his paid year left on his contract and come back refreshed. Front office is quoted as he "may be offered an alternative job".  I read that as negotiating buying out his contract.

Indeed, The G.M. should have been given a gold watch and a medical retirement.  Who knows?  Changes are frequently good.  The Twins have a significant number of Latin players in their system, including many in the majors.  We need a Latino, not just a Spanish speaker, somewhere on the bench.

The Twins fired field manager Ron Gardenhire today, thus guaranteeing, imo, the free-fall from contention will continue.

  Part of a manager's job description is to be fired when the front office screws up.

I'm glad you survived that 27th out... any time an outfielder leaves his feet it becomes a very low-percentage play... but he cradled that thing like a wide receiver going over the middle...

Did you see the "14 Things" link down there Some of it's pretty cool.
