Rincon

15 posts in this topic

What's up with Juan?? HE used to be the go to guy. A solid set up guy. I'll give him 1-2 more chances out of the bull, hopefully not in a tight game, and than move him if he still struggles.

What do others think?

Neshek is the guy now it seems....Rincon needs to step it up.

Mud,

I think since he stopped drinking the "vitamin shakes" (with vitamin S) he has fell off his stuff. Time to go back to Juan Roid-Con!

Windy, I think you hit the nail on the head, Rincon has never been the same since his suspension. He has bouts where looks good, but is much too inconsistent now.

ERA last 3 seasons 2.63, 2.46, 2.91, ERA before his last 2 outings 2.38. I seriously fail to see the inconsistency. I love how people freak out when a relief pitcher has a couple bad games. Its like everyone thinks they can come out and be lights out every game. I will take juan over 90% of the setup guys in the league. He is struggling right now but I would be willing to bet by years end his ERA will be right back around 3.00 if not below.

Your right. Relief pitchers cant be perfect every game.

Does anyone recall Rincon going an entire inning this year without giving up runs? Twins lose 5-3 in the 10th because of him.

He's become J.C. Romero. I hope he enjoys wherever he'll be pitching next year.

I believe they lost the game due to Guerrier's wild pitch. 2 outs and a curve ball in the dirt killed them. If this wouldn't have happened Nathen would have been in to close it out. You have to realize the Twins haven't used their reilef pitchers in the last three games. Don't get me wrong Rincon did give up the winning tater but that is baseball. I believe after hearing Santana's comments yesterday the whole team is in a "give up attitude." Also having the disaster occur just before the game yesterday.

Gardy lost that game yesterday.

Leave Neshek in to finish the whole 8th, bring Nathan in for the ninth and we are only 5 back in the division. He overmanaged that game big time.

As far as Rincon. He has been getting shelled every time out. ERA is really not a good indicator of a relievers success. Look at his BAA, it is up in the .300's which is not good for a setup man. He hasn't had his command and it has hurt him. His stuff looks good still, but you can't groove a straight fastball(no movement) right down the middle to ML hitters and that is exactly what he has been doing lately, this resulting in a poor season.

I agree, Gardy got to technical. Let Neshek do his thing!

He needs to go. Like Willy said-hitters are just sitting on that tart that comes right down the pipe and blasting him. As I said earlier- Ryan should have traded him a month ago. Maybe we could have got something for him. Think we will now? Nope. This isn't breaking news. He did a lot of this last year as well. '05 was his last decent year if you look at all the stats. Now we are screwed keeping him because other teams have seen his awful numbers and are looking elsewhere. I would too.

      Anyfish2 - thanks for the reports. I believe it was you who had written a little summary that included a rough estimation of when the LF river busts open and muddies the Rainy.    Can you (or anyone) comment on when that's looking likely to happen? anyone know when the river cleared the Frontier landing? I think you said that happening gives a 1-to-2 week notice on the LF breakup.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
