I'd be stunned if Ryan fired Gardy.My belief is that eventually Dougie Baseball replaces Gardy but it's a few years down the line.I also think keeping Gardy is a good thing.
And I suspect this thread blows up.
My preference would be Ronnie is let go.His record has been terrible, most of that is not his fault. I am not a huge believer in motivational speakers inspiring guys to play better.His roster has been terrible, starting pitching has been in the 27-30 range the last 3-4 years.So you can't really expect a better outcome.
Having said that, I really don't like the way Ron handles young players.He constantly plays guys, young guys even out of position (Pinto at DH, Santana at CF) and he also ridicules them in the press.For those reasons alone I don't think he is the right guy for the job given the level of talent we are going to bring up in the next 1-2 years.
My preference would be Paul Molitor, but my only real request would be a better partnership between the GM and coach and they get on the same page as far as developing players.Given where the Twins are right now, the coach should be playing for next year more so than this year.Gardy does not seem to think past today.
For what it is worth, I think Ron is the manager next year.
