Twinsights: What role did business factors play in Ron Gardenhire's dismissal?

Despite declining attendance over the past several seasons at Target Field, Twins officials insisted business considerations played little role in the decision to dismiss Ron Gardenhire after 13 seasons as manager. “I would say virtually zero,” Twins CEO Jim Pohlad said on a conference call with reporters Monday evening. “I’m not going to sit here and tell you the effect on ticket sales of four consecutive losing seasons has been a positive one.

Twinsights: Does the Twins Way still exist?

Before I ever got to my current post at the Pioneer Press in 2013, I used to hear about the Twins Way. I grew to admire it from afar, placing it right up there with the Cardinals Way and the Braves Way and what used to be called the Oriole Way, going back to the reign of the Earl (Weaver) of Baltimore in the late 1960s and 1970s. Heck, the very address of Target Field, this beautiful outdoor jewel hued from all those tons of distinctive limestone, is 1 Twins Way.   So, on this historic Monday, I asked a [...] The post Twinsights: Does the Twins Way still exist? appeared first on Twins Now.
