From Ron Gardenhire:

"As [the Sox] announced they got Thome and [the New York Mets] got Carlos Delgado, we announced we got new jerseys," Gardenhire deadpanned. "We're pretty excited about our announcement. We got vests. We're pretty excited about it."

I guess this is why people say he's one of the great guys in baseball, seems like he has a good sense of humor...

They've also got a lock on third place next year. Losers.

Well at least they got something new. Maybe they are hoping that the new jerseys will scare their opponents into submission.

"Now the kilt was only for day-to-day wear. In battle, we donned a full-length ball gown covered in sequins. The idea was to blind your opponent with luxury."
Gardy's a good guy, you can't say the same thing about his team.

It's hard to dislike this man...he's great competition.

Hopefully he gets to manage a team with an actual payroll sometime in his future, he deserves it.

Maybe a team with Carl Everett?

**** Ron Gardenhire and **** the Twins. They can perpetually wallow in third place for all I care.

Twins new uniform... (using Daver voice) "Polishing a turd."

It is a lot like those 50s and 60s throwback vest-jerseys the Pirates and Reds, among others, used to wear.

I have no trouble whatsoever disliking everything about the Twins...or the Vikings, for that matter.

I always liked Gardenhire. I remember when he was the SS for the 1982 Mets, the first team I ever watched. The team was awful but I loved them. I hated the Cubs for beating us to second-to-last place. Still hate the Cubs.

Actually I think third is Detroit's to lose. Twins could be battling the royals for fourth.
