On Sunday, the Jumbotron at Target Field in Minneapolis showed highlights of the White Sox comeback win over the Red Sox.â†µ
Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was not happy about that:â†µ
â€œScoreboard watching is one thing; having White Sox highlights during our game is a joke,â€ Gardenhire told reporters. â€œIt brought everybody down. The crowd [got deflated]. We donâ€™t need that. This is our game. We donâ€™t care what the White Sox do until we play them. Theyâ€™ve never done that, and I hope they never do it again.â€â†µ
And to be sure, Gardenhire spoke to the Twins front office about it. Monday, they showed highlights of the Cardinals/Brewers game instead.â†µ
That ought to be one heck of a series when the Twins come to Chicago next week. The Sox, trailing by 4.5 games with 24 remaining, need to stay close until then.
