As we did when Little Nicky Punto and “Boring” Joe Mauer retired, its time to round up some of our favorite things about Ron Gardenhire that have appeared on this site over the years. He’s been a favorite target of our humor, so this really just skims the surface.


Scenes from an off season: Jon Marthaler (yeah, the soccer guy, he used to write here) spins tales of what life is like when you’re Ron Gardenhire and his Twins teams, and there is no baseball to be played. Several other writers contributed entries as well.

Vol 1, Vol 2, Vol 3, Vol 4, Vol 5, Vol 6, Vol 7, Vol 8 Vol 9, Vol 9.5, Vol 10, Vol 11,

Scenes from a not season: Myjah’s classic take on what life is like for a suddenly-fired MLB manager. When it’s on-season, you’re playing baseball. When it’s off-season, you’re thinking about playing baseball. When you’re a fired manager with no new job? It’s a NOT-season.
