    I think you were five minutes late when you went to see it in the theater.

    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Apparently, the Twins need to find more pitcher from independent leagues.

    You pitched 8.1 innings in Peewee Hockey? I think you were doing something wrong.

    Hey, I had a hat trick against Richfield, and I didn't move to Minnesota and learn to skate until I was five. These guys had 3 years on me.

    our MEDIA? the few times the media has dared press him on an issue he demeans the guy asking with smart-allecky responses as if to say how dare you, mere mortal, questions my tactics...weakest group of reporters in baseball attend Gardy's postgame interviews.

    And the MOST important thing, he didn't walk anybody AND he kept the strikeouts down.

    Gardy said he thought he looked gassed out there so used the hook. But he heaped a ton on praise on him.

    That's one of Gardy's go to phrases. Has 100 or more pitches, gonna pull him cause he must be gassed and it's a good excuse to use.

    I have no idea whether he should have been pulled or not...I have no idea whether or not he was gassed...didn't watch the game...but Gardy says that kind of thing all the time and plenty of times the pitcher didn't look to be gassed at all. Not at all. Just because a guy hits 100 pitches and walks his first batter of the entire game, doesn't mean he's gassed.

    Two baserunners in the ninth including a four-pitch walk was enough for me. Don't you think the majority of managers would have done about the same?

    Also: the comment about the character of members of the media was a bit chippy even for a game thread. Let's keep the tone respectful of others, even ones not participating in the discussion.

    Maybe, maybe not...some might have waited until he gave up a run, especially with a 7 run lead.

    In any event, I think allowing two runners on with one out would be a better reason...and I'd say it like that, 'well he was starting to get in a bit of trouble there, so it was a good time to pull him'

    And again, I didn't even see the game, and maybe he was gassed or looked gassed, but this whole gassed thing is way overused as a reason by him.
