A Chicago reporter asked Twins manager Ron Gardenhire about Mark Buehrle this morning, and Gardy joked that he hoped Buehrle, 19-10 against the Twins, gets traded out of the division.
This was the quote I was looking for yesterday after the game, but Gardenhire was too frustrated to be witty. He knows his team has played inconsistently, and losing 3-1 after scoring 20 and 12 runs the day before was hard for him to take.
I expect the Twins to go all out today to make this a winning road trip.
