Does Gardy FINALLY Win Manager of the Year?????

Yeah, but Ron Washington is right there...might be one of the few times that someone else deserves it as much or more than Gardy.

I'd be shocked if he didn't win it this year. He's been in the top three or four so many times, and he did a nice job this year without his best run producer. I think he'll get it as a sort of lifetime achievement award.

Now to see if he can finally win in the playoffs...

I don't see anyone else that stands out as much as Gardie. The Twins truly are a model franchise with the entire team chipping in throughout the entire year including guys that are coming off the bench and coming up from AAA or AA.

Gardy all the way. As I read in some comments in SI a couple of weeks ago:

"2 years from now Washington will be on a street corner in Detroit drinking a Colt 45, Gardy will still be winning divisions" grin

I would like to see him win it. With that being said, we were expected to be this good and be a challanger in the American league because of our line up. We as Minnesota sport fans expect mediocraty and are always stunned when we are better than good. The Twins have had the talent from day one our record really shouldn't be a suprise. Gardy did a good job with good players, but probably not his best, or the leagues best this season.

Yes, the Twins were supposed to be good this year. But we did it without our closer and MVP first baseman for most of the season. We once again had players fill holes on our middle infield while those guys were hurt. Gardy deserves this award hands down this year!

It wasn't that long ago the Tigers were stacked with talent and they finished 3rd in the division (2008). You can have all the talent in the world, but it still takes good coaching from top to bottom to make the team successful!

Like I said I hope he gets the award. But did he do a better job than say the manager of the Rangers? They where expected to finish 3rd or last in the West. Now they are going to win the west and win 90+ games. That is a pretty impressive and deserving job, considering on "paper" didn't have the talent of the Twins line-up or pitching staff at the start of the season.

Again I hope Gardy wins it, but he's got stiff competion again this season for it.

come on sledneck, you know as well as I do all raving about how the Twins where going to have the best top to bottom line up in the majors, by the likes of ESPN, SI, ect. I read it as I'm sure you did also, so don't sound so suprised! Cripes! I guess they where spot on! They knew Texas had a great line up, they just though ours was going to be better from spot one to spot nine.

If Gardy doesn't win this year, the whole thing is a joke. With the issues regarding a new closer, losing an MVP first baseman, juggling until we found a 3rd baseman, his perfect usuage of Thome to keep him fresh and relatively healthy, dealing with a different pitching staff over and over again.... sorry, but if Gardy doesn't win this won, he won't ever win one. Washington did a good job too, but I don't think it compares to what Gardy has done.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!

      I had a good start to the season on opener. Fishing was slow but consistent. I had four eaters in the box by lunch dragging perch raps. Crappies were biting. I haven't been up since so don't know how things have changed since then, but I'm sure the walleye continue to migrate out into the main basins.

      Let’s start this by congratulating Brianf and son for winning their second City Autoglass Walleye Classic last weekend. These guys know how to fish.  We just got to the lake for the season. Chores are almost done and I’m ready to fish.  red(new dog is more yellow)labguy

      I tried starting a 2024 Lake Vermilion Fishing Report topic but it doesn't show up on this board.   Maybe somebody else knows how to do it?
