7/19 Twins vs Detroit

22 posts in this topic

Well so far, the Twins have looked like themselves. Nary a hit once through the order. Pathetic. Last 3 and 1/3 games vs Detroit....2 runs. But Bartlett has another error.

Can you imagine our pitchers?? I bet they wanna trade in our offense for the New Berlin AA teams.

We can choose to look at the bright side. 4 shut out innings by our 5th starter. I'll take what I can get.

Good news: 5 shut out innings by Baker.

Bad news: 5 futile innings by our offense.

i am shocked they left Baker in for the 7th. They had the chance to take him out to give him the chance to get the win. He was already at 90 pitches and they have a rested bullpen. One innning to many.

bottom of the 8th. I have another beetch. I work in Shoreview. You know, 35W and the new Hwy 10. AND I CANNOT GET THE GAME ON THE RADIO! what a worthless station 1500 is.

Anyway, what happened to Morneau? he was out somehow, but I cant tell how. As much as I like Morneau, about the only complaint I can make about him is he needs to improve his baserunning.

Bottom of the ninth. tie score. We need one run to win. All we need is a jack and it is over. Lets see, we have Punto (1 hr), Tyner (O career hrs), and Castillo (0 hrs) coming up. We will be lucky to score with 3 singles. Ugggh. I love my Twins, but they are sure trying my patience.

Wild pitch, he started running for home and the ball bounced right back to the catcher. Caught between 3rd and home the catcher threw to third and Morneau rose his shoulder so the ball would hit him. Called out.

So is it time to start selling our players, or do you think, we should still buy?

I cannot believe they left baker in that long. Seems they always leave the starter in to long and they have a bad inning when you can see they are having trouble. I'm no wizzard but, I tell my wife all the time, watch them leave the starter in to long and let another 2-3 runs score. We dont have the bats to get those back.

Last year was a great run but I cannot in any way see this again this season. I do keep watching but its getting old, fast.

Wandering,

Maybe we can combine the Twinks and my beloved Pale Hose and have one huge garage sale of players???

I don't think the Twinks or Sox have enough in the tank this year to overtake the Tribe let alone the Kitties. Maybe we can package players in the garage sale......

Nick Punto and Juan Uribe

Tyner and Ryan Buckvich

Let's get some garage sale signs and start putting them up all over New York, Boston and LA...going to the highest bidder LOL

The problem is, I dont think anybody wants them players. The only players they are going to want are the ones we dont want to get rid of.

It would be great to dump all of them guys, then rebuild next year, but the ones teams are going to want are torii, johan, justin, cuddy. Although thanks to the white sox for beating the tribe a few times, it keeps the wild card in reach.

Dan Barreiro yesterday said we need to trade Mauer. Thought that was interesting.

I heard that also, I dont agree, we have him locked for a few years, if we are going to trade lets dump the up coming big unsignable contracts like hunter, castillo, nathan, then try to see if someone will take silva, punto, kubal, tyner, ect... Then maybe we can sign justin, johan.

Baker left in too long again yet Johan gets the hook with a shutout working.

Dan Barreiro was just trying to get a rise for his show.

The Sox are totally out of it and we will pass Cleveland but I do expect the Yankees to keep steamrolling which makes it's tough.

NEVER GIVE UP!

Being a lifelong Cub fan has taught me to enjoy the role of "spoiler" - something to consider once your team is out of it.

Barrero's take on trading Nathan b4 the deadline was right on though, we have Neshek who has a better Opp BA, and a ready-made closer... Trading Nathan, you should be able to get some power for a top 3 closer... And the trading Mauer thing is just stupid.

      pretty neat that the train went over.

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.
