WHY TWINS FANS STINK

16 posts in this topic

Because when they don't play well this board is on fire but when they win - silence . Go figure .

Quit wasting the board's space with this crap.

The Twins won yesterday and I'm happy. When I have a good weekend, that makes me happy. That doesn't mean I post about it every time it happens.

The discussions on the Twins' problems are fans trying to figure out what is wrong. This season was filled with such promise that we want to discuss what went wrong. That doesn't mean we are jumping ship.

Crazy,

Not so for us Pale Hose fans. I know you have not heard as much from me this season as my beloved Pale Hose flail about in mediocrity as you did during the 2005 season (you remember that one don't you?). Not sure why Twink fans would chirp more when they tank but I know that when I get a bad meal from a restaurant I stop going to that one. Lots of other things to occupy my time. Oh well, I guess I have just added fuel to your fire by posting this so enjoy!

What do you want everyone to proclaim how great they are because they won a couple games?

The fact is, the Twins are underachieving this year. Cleveland and Detroit are both doing their best flop trying to give the division away and we have squandered a very good chance.

If you told me at the start of the year it would only take 86-88 wins to take this division, I would never believed it. Well, that is probably all it will take and if the Twins would have played even one good stretch of ball, they would be right there.

Plus, the talk is always going to be about what is wrong and what we can fix. It's no fun to talk about how everything is perfect. smirk.gif

Yes, sometimes frustrating but always fun to watch.

Last night when Mauer was at bat in the 9th, I looked at my buddy sitting on the pub stool next to me and said,"They're going to walk Mauer, load em for a force, and Torii is going to jack one."

For once in my life I got a call right.

I guess I watch them either way, win or lose. Always have. It is still baseball and better than that, Twins baseball.

However, what is wrong with pointing out the goods and bads of the team?

I will say right now that our pitching this year has been excellent. Alot better than expected and definitely a reason to get excited for next year, provided we bring in some offensive help.

If there weren't things to complain or pick apart, what would we talk about?

Gee, the Twins are good. End of story and no more posts. smirk.gif

Look how muskycrazy spells muskie...

He's probably stirin' the pot because he's a Brewer's fan... grin.gifshocked.gifcrazy.gif

Go Twins! (even though I think they are done too). I'll take this over many of the other teams they've fielded over the last couple of decades.

Good Luck!

How about that grand slam by T-Hunt last night? That was pretty sweet.

Where are those types of hits when they are down by 2 or 3 runs in the 7th inning?? It was a nice shot but that could of been used a few games back.

I agree. But all I could think of is that "may" be one of the last HR's we get to see Hunter hit as a Twin. I hope I'm wrong.

I hope your wrong too Coach . I'd like to think Torii realizes that as a Twin he is one of our own , an icon , and probably will be even if he leaves . If he goes to the Yankees he will be much richer but I don't think he will be as beloved . I should have said why SOME fans stink in the subject bar because I know that most Twins fan are like me . We appriciate the 2 World Series wins , the many , many divisional wins . The year in and year out quality teams that the Twins field . I went to my first Twins game around '71 at the Met , I grew up , like a lot of us , listening to the Killer , Carew , Oliva , Hrbek , Puckett and the rest . Things is that in that time I have learned to accept that not every team is going to be great . But they will be again . A lot of guy think the suits have packed it in , I don't think so . I don't think they play for next year . I think they are pretty good at what they do . I questioned when they drafted Mauer instead of Prior , like a lot of people did , but it turns out they were right - like they are most times . I understand frustration , I get frustrated too, but like I said sometimes you gotta take the good with the bad . They play against other professional ball players and sometimes they're just not going to look as good as the other team .

MuskyCrazy,

Funny how the more things change the more they stay the same. In reading your post I see myself, except about 6 hours southeast here in the Windy City. My first recollections were right around 1969 when I was 10 years old and I can still remember my first Sox team. Bill Melton, Carlos May, Luis Apparricio, Buddy Bradford, Ed Hermann, Bobby Knoop, Ken Berry, Dick Allen, Walt "No Neck" Williams. Those memories are what cement your following and create those crazy life long fans that sit on threads like this slinging the B.S. I still have some of my old baseball cards and like you, don't expect a winner every year. Grumble when they are doing bad, crow a little when they do good but day in and day out find ourselves flipping the channel on every day when they take the field!

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).
