[Former Twins manager turned soon-to-be former Twins announcer Tom Kelly] has that Stupid in him.
However, Kelly doesn’t put all the blame on the starting pitchers. He believes the defense is not playing as well as Twins teams have in the past.
“I think the manager would like to see the defense perform a little bit better, too,” Kelly said. “We’ve done better this year compared to last year, but lately there’s been a few [poor] plays out there. [Twins manager Ron Gardenhire] has that German in him and he’s not too happy with a few of those defensive plays that we’ve made and some of the baserunning blunders we’ve made the last week or so. There’s a few things to clean up and Gardy is the right man to do the job.”
...One hears lots of praise for the great job Kelly does when he is the color commentator on Twins broadcasts, but that field doesn’t interest him as a long-term career.
“No sir, [Sunday] is the last day for me,” Kelly joked this weekend. “I haven’t won any games. I’m starting to think I might be the jinx.”
