I thought the Twins did a great job with the honorary shirt they designed for Gardy...1000 wins, 67 ejections! I've always enjoyed Gardy's fiery nature and willingness to defend his guys...one of his better assets.
It got me thinking, though...I assume Gardy got credit for a win in those 67 games he didn't finish. Kind of questionable because the Twins were behind in some of those games at the time of ejection, and they came back to win under the direction of somebody else!
I wonder how many wins Cy Young would have had if he had been credited with a win for every winning game which he started, even if the team was behind at the time of his removal! Phil Hughes has to be fuming right now...under the "manager's wins" rules, he's 1-0 for the season!
