Tuesday, September 30, 2014

(From AP)

The Minnesota Twins have fired manager Ron Gardenhire after 13 seasons that included at least 92 losses in each of the last four years. The move was made Monday, ending the second-longest active tenure in the major leagues behind Mike Scioscia of the Angels. Gardenhire played an integral role in the franchise's renaissance, guiding the Twins to their first of six American League Central division titles in 2002 in his first season on the job. But Gardenhire's teams only got out of the first round once in those six trips. Gardenhire had one year left on his contract.
