Fire Gardy

31 posts in this topic

Another Gardy team that wasn't ready for the playoffs yet reports are that he'll get a three-year extension at $1.75 mil a year. That means he'll keep hillbillies Anderson, Liddle and that guy at first base who the boys hand their gloves.

It was a team effort. They all sucked. But hey, you gotta end the season playing just as hard as you started it, and they sure did that, LOL. Did I mention, Go Tigers!

Yeah Anderson is a hillbilly who deserves to be fired. Oh wait he only has the BEST starter in the League along with the BEST bullpen in the league. They don't get that way and stay that way by mere chance.

I do feel that much of playoff blame can go to

Gardenhire, for not getting his team up, not playing the guys that got you there, and making some bone head decisions that almost made it seem like he himself wasn't quite prepared to make game situation decisions. Yet I think he should be the AL coach of the year and don't want to see him or Anderson leave.

gardy wasn't swinging the bats for these guys. the blame goes directly to the offense. what were they with runners in scoring position?

thats baseball... detroit plays terrible down the stretch and everyone writes them off. they were supposed to get swept by the yankees. a yankees team with the best lineup in history possibly.

Weren't you guys roasting Ozzie about two weeks ago for allowing his team to give up? It was manager, manager, manager...That's all I heard. Even though I said it was the players who pitch and hit and they should take the blame. Shoe's on the other foot now. I still blame the players. I was just adding a little fuel to the fire in my calling for Gardy's head.

"Things that make you go...HMMM? Windy

wow all you guys can complain about gardy, heck i would of point my fingers at the players and gardy, they're hearts wernt into the playoffs. gardy needs to be the coach, hes done a heck of a job so far ever since hes been with the team. how many divison champs has he won with the team?? oh wait you guys probally now will say its not him that won it its the team. so when it comes down the team losen its his fault and when it comes down to the team wining its all the players. hes part of the team and the way i see it, its as much of his fault as much as the players fault too.

How bout Joe Torre, Buzz? I think he will be looking after today, from what the papers are saying. Windy

Get real!!!

There is nothing wrong with Gardy. Nobody in MLB consistently gets more from his players than Gardy. How many teams were in the playoffs that had a starting staff full of rookies and a lineup with all kinds of AAA players?

By the way Rick Anderson is one of the best if not the best pitching coaches EVER in baseball. You are on drugs.

Are you serious windy? Torre asks for more money a year than a majority of the twins players. I want to see the day that the twins pay a manager 7 million a year. crazy.gif

Joe Torre is to baseball coaching what Phil Jackson is to coaching basketball.... these guys get teams that are loaded and run with them. I'll take Gardy over Torre, thank you very much.

But I'd take Torre over Ozzie Guillen all day long!! Whatcha think of them apples Windy? I mean a third place finish for a team expected to repeat has to be disappointing. You wouldn't get all that crazy talk from Torre as you do with Guillen... basically a more level clubhouse. It might be what the White Sox need to compete again next year.

I think the Twins have a lot of things going for them. Liriano, Santana are top tier pitchers and the rest of the starters should also do well next year. M&M, Cuddy, and Castillo are all solid. We even got great play from Bartlett, Tyner, and Punto which I think surprised a lot of people.

As the Skipper, Gardy had a lot to do with that. I respect him as a coach, however we seem to have a Denny Green-like thing going on. Great teams during the regular season that can't seem to compete in the play-offs. Now don't get me wrong, I don't equate the two -- I have much more respect for Gardy. But at some point we have say we can do better. Maybe he gets 1-2 more years and then it's time to try someone else.

Windy will never openly admitt that he agrees with any of us so i would take his silence as an sign of agreement.

Torre is a better manager the Ozzie hands down, Ozzie knows baseball but not how to manage players. Torre has had to manage a team of allstar egos for years and he has do it well.

Torre doesn't do anything IMO. He is managing a team of superstars. Nothing he does or doesn't do has any effect on that team.

Of course this is only my point of view.

With the budget that tightwad Pohlad gives Ryan I think he's got to be a miracle worker to even put a competitive team on the field let alone a division champ. No other big time GM would even touch this team with Pohlad's budget constraints on them...

Things could always be worse. In my opinion, Gardy has done an outstanding job with this team. Most of this team has been built from minor league players. He seems to get the rookies to produce. He had no hesitation to bench and send to minor league the big money players like Lohse, Silva, Rivas, etc. in the past.

Leave it to Mitty to harp on Ryan. Terry Ryan is widely considered to be one of the best general managers in all of baseball. He puts a competetive team on the field every year despite not getting competetive money from Pohlad at times. He did sign a few players that turned out to be less then expected, but thats the case with every team in baseball. I choose to look at the players he has gotten that have been way more then expected and he got them at affordable prices.

Also in defense of Rondell White, alot of players are not able to pick up the DH role easily. Some guys need the routine of playing in the field. One such guy is Shannon Stewart, he just can't hit in the DH spot, never could and probably never will.

In general Mitty your complaints are so bizarre and contrary to any rational thought that it makes it really hard to take you seriously. I assume you are just trying to get a reaction out of us, I hope you are enjoying it.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff
