MINNEAPOLIS - Twins manager Ron Gardenhire's future with the club is uncertain. But a decision should be coming in the next day or two.
With an MLB-mandated moratorium on team announcements during the playoffs, expect quick resolution soon.
"Probably tomorrow or Tuesday. Right before the playoffs," Gardenhire said Sunday. "You'd have to ask somebody else.
"They're still discussing. You saw us talking; we're still talking. Just like we always do."
Gardenhire's mood has remained mostly upbeat through the last month of the season, which was no doubt trying as the club's first 20-loss month since September 2011. Gardenhire was in good spirits Sunday, despite not being sure how things will shake out.
One reporter asked Gardenhire about how he's at such peace with his future with the Twins in question.
"I think I've been like this pretty much every day. I don't really show my emotions too awful much," Gardenhire said. "Conversations are still going on. There's not a lot of information out there. We all know what's at stake. It's not going to happen through me; it might happen through the man upstairs. I will never tell you my conversations with him, that's a private thing. It is what it is. Whatever happens, he's going to have to make a decision and go with it. And I live with it, one way or another. That's just where we're at."
Some have suggested that Gardenhire, if he doesn't return with the Twins, he could be a candidate for a managerial job elsewhere.
"I don't even think about that. None whatsoever," Gardenhire said. "I haven't even looked at it, other than reading that Wedge walked away. That's the only thing I know has opened up, and that's only because it was announced. I don't think about that stuff. I don't care about it. I like where I'm at, and I'd rather stay here. If it doesn't work out here, then you start thinking about other stuff. I enjoy it here. It's as good as it gets here."
