BATTLED! Gardy used it again in the post game. For once I'd like for him to tell the truth.... we gave up on the season at the trade deadline thanks to our trillionaire owner who didn't get my club a bat, this year and the previous 3. Say it gardy, just say it! I can think of awhole lot of men and wowen who really are BATTLING.

So in your opinion the twins are 1 batter away from contending?

Who is this person that would have given us 5 or 6 RBIs a night?

The Twins need way more than one more player. These other dudes like Jones and Watkins I doubt will be much of anything. I guess some change might be good but we need to have something a little better in reserve. Some of these guys batting averages are really poor.

One might as well face the facts, they are as poor this year as they were good last year. complete reversal.

just like everybody says we need a 3B, LF and DH, and maybe a SS. the only chance we have next year is if next years rotation is lights out, and all the young guys are good to great. Santana, Garza, Liriano, Baker, Silva sounds pretty good. plus Slowey/Perkins if one doesnt succeed. who knows. money needs to be spent in the offseason.

Last season was the once every other decade chance that a team like the Twins has, when all there minor league players in the starting lineup have a career year.... didn't happen last year, and it won't happen for some time again.

You know it's bad when your DH is batting .150....(Jones) in a key game, heck every game from here on out is key.

Thats twins ball though, I guess it's part of the appeal.

Bonser should be moved to the pen...then he wont need to worry about lasting more than 3 innings and he can stay fat.

I'm just soooo happy we did not give up Juan Rincon for Ty Wigginton. Can Rincon get anyone out??????? As soon as he came in last nite, I knew the game was over.

Sled, I agree we need more than 1 bat, but if we had just 1, a decent one, that 6 1/2 could be 3. I know it's the twins style and all, but they have not capitalized on poor play from the kitties and indians because of the format this team sticks to. Simply Battling day in and day out is a cop out for really saying we are not that good.

At least they are battling their tails off. grin.gif

I am sick of it too. Next year we could have the same core + Liriano. If our management can't see that spending a few extra bucks could put us in the WS, then they never will.

PS Castillo is only batting like .350 since he joined the Mets and getting on base at a .390 clip. Didn't need him. smirk.gif

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.

      Hi guys and gals,   Does anyone know much about this lake? I don't fish this area of the state. We are looking to stay at Cedar Point Resort for a week. Just want to get to know the lake for what it is.   Is it a bass, northern, pan fish or walleye lake? Or all of the above? The surveys don't look that impressive.   Any good guides in the area?   Thanks.   Avid

      The bite is on in Trout lake. Remote lake walleye fishing has been good. A leech or crawler has  been producing nice fish. This last week Trout lake has been good for lake trout, walleye and bass. A camper had caught and released a 44 inch pike. Bass fishermen reported 100 fish days.   The Y-store is looking into taking on BWCA permits. Please encourage and support them to do so.

      On many lakes it is possible to rent a boat for a reasonable price.  Or to hire a guide who knows the area and the lakes.

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
