FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Don't tell this to umpires who have ejected him 62 times over the past 11 summers, but they don't make managers any more laid back than Ron Gardenhire. Give him a beer and a bowling league over a trendy cocktail and a hip nightclub any day of the week. For the longest time, the Zac Brown Band's Chicken Fried was the ringtone on his cell phone. A pair of jeans that fit just right. Mmm-hmm.
