Twins | Skipper disagrees with avoiding collisions

Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire disagrees with Oakland Athletics general manager Billy Beane's opinion to avoid collisions at home plate. The two were teammates in the minors. "I don't think you can tell an athlete to back away from a play at home plate if it's winning or losing the ballgame," Gardenhire said. "Tell him, 'I don't want you to take the hit. Let the ball go to the backstop?' Ain't going to happen."
