I’ve changed my mind: Gardenhire needs to go based on his refusal to platoon alone.

We need to make this happen.

It’s a lot easier finding 6-7 everyday players than it is to find 9. That’s just common sense. They tend to be cheaper as well. It’s almost as if they would rather prove a point than put together a better team on the cheap. In a small market especially, it’s a very strange position to take.
