    fire it through the internet gardenhire shirt

    I wrote yesterday about Twins manager Ron Gardenhire being annoyed with reporters using Twitter to relay his words to the public much quicker than they were able to in the past and took particular delight in his frustratedly telling them: You can tweet that.

    For some reason Ron Gardenhire is becoming increasingly annoyed with how quickly and efficiently reporters are able to relay his words to the Twins-loving public via Twitter.

    Boston Red Sox Photo Day

    But not just because he yelled racist stuff at Carl Crawford.

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL — The thing about the Winter Meetings is that, if you have some silly idea, there are a lot of people around you drinking cocktails, convincing you that the idea is not silly.

    Boston Red Sox Beckett pitches against Seattle Mariners during their MLB baseball game in Boston

    Red Sox 5, Mariners 0: That Josh Beckett is such a disgrace! He’s poisoning this team, I tell you, poisoning them! Oh, wait, he pitched well? Seven shutout innings while striking out nine? Well, in that case, I stand corrected. Cardinals 7, Cubs 6: Jason Motte vultured a win when he gave up a tying…
