The Tigers play their last home game tomorrow, so it might be a little surprising he didn't hang around for another 24 hours, but he had the food poisoning and it doesn't look or sound like he was enjoying things. It's a little chilly in Detroit this weekend, but Gardenhire looked like he showed up for ice fishing last night. Granted, I've never been a fan, but I think most agree that being an old school curmudgeonly asshole has always sort of been Gardy's thing. I think the COVID version of MLB has been wearing on him. He was grumbling that he always looks forward to the annual postmortem meetings with the players, but found out they're being replaced by email this year. Doesn't surprise he wasn't going to deal with a final road trip.
