12 posts in this topic

Just heard that they are looking at Mike Piazza (spelling) is on the Twins hit list? Anyone else hear this. If so, Only a couple of hours left.

He could take Ford's spot.

Ford's spot ? at 8 mil a year coming off a shoulder injury that has sidelined him for just about the entire season. Remember he was a catcher I don't believe he has ever even seen a ball in the outfield. Got enough catchers with yesterday's trade.

OVERRATED

Another hitter whose home runs come when they're ahead 10-2.

Piazza may be the type of player that will clear waivers. I would guess if the Twins really want him, there will still be a decent shot at him.

I'll take him as our DH any day of the week.

Bobby Kielty was also released. If he clears waiver he would become a free agent. He could do some DHing and play some in left field. Not that he has been much good since we let him go.

Im a braves fan, but still like the twins. They need to do something to get a power hitter for a DH or Third.

I've said this many times. The Twins won't use a designated hitter. When someone comes off the DL, he DH's. When Mauer doesn't catch, he DH's. They do this by design. Whenever they try to make a DH out of someone, (eg. Lecroy) and he gets enough at-bats in so he starts to get locked in, someone comes off the DL or someone takes a day off from the field but hits and the "DH" sits for several games. Nobody, and I mean nobody bumps David Ortiz, Travis Hafner, or Jim Thome.

New York teams aren't interested............... might be coming here. I would rather have Thomas- but maybe, just maybe we can squeeze one injury free season out of Piazza if he signs with the Twins

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
