Thread: Predictions - When will Gardy reach .500 as a Manager?

    Predictions - When will Gardy reach .500 as a Manager?

    So Gardy recently made 1000 wins. And added two more, even though he was absent. As of 4/12, Gardy is now at 1003-953 record. There is the possibility he will reach two more milestones this year.

    1) 1000 losses
    2) .500 win/loss percentage.

    If the Twins lose the next 50 games, Gardy will reach both milestones in early June. Even though the Twins are bad, they are not THAT bad. By my California math, the Twins would need to lose 50 more games than they win this year for Gardy to hit .500 (or at least be 50 games under at some point in the season). This would project to a 56-106 record. Do you think the Twins can make it this year?

    On the other hand, I think Gardy losing 1000 games is easily in reach. My prediction would be between All-Star break and Aug 1. What are yours?

    I don't think the Twins are bad enough to lose 106 games this year.
    My prediction was 62-100 coming into the season, but they have looked a little better than I expected them to, so I might have to re think that.

    Yes, unfortunately Gardy will fall below .500 sometime next year.

    I predict Gardy loses #1000 on the 4th of July.

    If so, I hope it is with another team.

    Really? Unfortunate to who? If the answer is Twins fans, you win. I am ready for a change.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    He won't. This year and next years Twins teams won't combine to go 50 games below .500, if they do, my guess is Gardy won't finish his contract.

    It's unlikely he reaches that number. It would take nearly 2 1/2 seasons of 70-92 play to reach the .500 mark and should that happen, Gardy will be long gone before that point.

    I say never. He'll retire or get fired before that happens. If he loses 90 again, he'll be shown the door. If not, he's likely to have a better record next year than this year.
