Questions for Gardenhire
During a press conference I sat in on Tuesday, Reds manager Jerry Narron said the following, which I feel compelled to share with my fellow Twins fans:
I'd love to see Kyle Lohse be a lot more consistent. He's got a great arm, but at times it just was not as good as I'm sure he would like to be. If he could have a consistent year and come up with 20, 25 quality starts--which I think he's capable of--I think this guy could have a huge year for us.
No, I didn't ask a follow-up question. I figured that was plenty on its own.
UPDATE: Gardenhire just finished his press conference, which was attended by a grand total of a half-dozen reporters (for comparison, Terry Francona drew a crowd of about 50, with five or six camera crews). I'm not sure how happy you'll be with the answers he gave, but I asked a whole bunch of questions. In fact, I think I may have asked as many as LaVelle E. Neal III, Jason Williams, and Kelly Thesier combined. I'll be back later with the details.
