Umpire Gibson gone

Umpire Greg Gibson, who was at first base for Monday's game and was the target of Ron Gardenhire's tirade, is not with the umpire crew tonight. No word yet on why Gibson was gone.

Yesterday when the Twins dugout was yelling toward first base and at A.J. Pierzynski after Justin Morneau said Pierzynski stepped on the first baseman's foot, Gibson looked over to Minnesota's dugout and delivered a throat-slashing motion. That incensed Gardenhire, who said the motion "got the Oklahoma up in me."

Check back for an update on Gibson's absence.
