Meanwhile, Ron Gardenhire notices(?) that Lew Ford is hitting .182 against lefties this year and decides to continue to help his team today by starting Ford against the lefty Odalis Perez. Ford goes 0/4 to bring his average to an outstanding .216 and his .298 OBP/.302 SLG a bit closer to Kubel's .291 batting average. In his last 10 appearances, Ford is now a very productive 4/22 with 1 RBI. But of course, Ford has 8 SB this year, so that must be the reason.
Keep up the good work, Ron. I hope the Twins decide to get a new manager before they get their new stadium.
