The answer is from Dave Schoenfeld who writes the "Sweet Spot" blog on ESPN's MLB page.
I can see a scary situation unfolding in Minneapolis. Say Mauer and/or Morneau gets hurt again early this season, Target Field could be half empty before the All-Star break as the 2012 Twins challenge the 1962 Mets for the ultimate distinction in baseball futility. How long before Gardy gets his long overdue ejection by the front office, even if the Twins stay healthy? The fans have wanted his head on a platter for years.

Eric Karabell just taped a video on managers on the hot seat. As you know, Twins are historically conservative (two managers since 1987), but I do wonder how long of a leash Gardy gets. It's time to change the entire organization philosophy of finesse pitchers, invest more/better in Latin America and maybe they'll have to replace Gardenhire to do that.
