Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports via Twitter that Ron Gardenhire -- entering the final year of his Twins contract -- is selling his home in the Twin Cities suburb of Little Canada.

Before you connect too many dots, however, Nightengale offers some clarity on his house-hunting motives:


Minnesota winters get to all of us eventually. Regardless of Gardenhire's intentions, we can't blame him for opting for a warmer winter destination -- one, we should note of course, that also happens to be the Twins' spring training home. Our only real concern is what will become of his bowling average.
