Rincon

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.

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.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol
