Nathan is the LEAST of this teams multitude of problems in the pitching dept. Rincon needs to go. If Neshek doesn't wake up pretty quick-he should be shown the door too. The mystique w/ his delivery is gone. Other teams have obviously figured out his mechanics and keyed in on (and teed off) on multiple times in the last 2-3 months. I used to be excited when he came in. Now, I groan. (Just like when I see Rincon trot in). Santana is not the pitcher he has been in the past. IMO he is not worth 20 million a year. Of course, I don't think anyone should be payed that kind of $ to start with, for that matter. They still don't have a LF or 3rd baseman. Lot of holes to plug. Are we gonna continue to bring up AAA guys and pray they can float? Are you listening Ryan?

I fully agree. Nathan is toast, you guys should ship him here to the Windy City, we would take him off your hands and send you a primo shortstop, Juan Uribe, straight up! We might even throw in a few deep dish pizza's. Do you want sausage or pepperoni?

PS Don't let the Cubbie logo fool you, it is the last day you will see it as I am paying off a bet to my Cubbie Loving buddy Geno.

K-dawg, who do you think should close then? Nathan is one of the best in the league still. If you don't want others to post their opinion, then don't post yours either. I am a twins fan thru and thru, and not one of the bandwagon fans. Yes this year is disapointing, but it is still just a game. Enjoy watching them, because their season is almost over. But really with the stats that NAthan has to start bashing him for his third or fourth blown save of the year is ridiculous. How many other teams in baseball would take him in a heatbeat. cool.gif

K Dawg, sorry, but in the real world no one is perfect. Nathan's one of the top closers in the majors. You don't like him, great, I think there's a lot of other folks on the field, dugout, & front office that need to get in the blame line waaaaaaaaaaaay before Nathan.

Bull head, keep your (Contact Us Please) opinions to your self if you have nothing positive to say. I don't like Nathan and that's all there is to it.


It's one thing not like someone but its totally CRAZY for a person not to realize that Nathan is one of the best closers in Baseball Period.

He should have been put in at the BEGINNING of the 9th. PERIOD. We would have never seen a 10th inning. That DePaula guy stinks.

And guess who gave up the game losing run in the 13th? The one and only Rincon. Big surprise.

Hey Guys,

I think we can still get this deal done. We are going to have to take Uribe off the deal but we can still ship you a few deep dish pizzas for Nathan...Even Up! Deal????

How about. Nathan, Liriano and Bonser for AJ. Might as well throw Mauer in the deal too. Since we won't need a catcher anymore. Of course AJ comes with a couple of them deep dish pies.

I wouldn't rule out another season for the chief. Most of the year, he's been our 2nd best starter. Nathan, one of the better in the league.

For every 1 good start Chief has, he has 5 that are horrible. No way he'll be back next year

Team's record for each starting pitcher:

Santana 17-13

Silva 13-16

Bonser 12-16

Baker 12-8

Garza 5-7

Slowey 5-4

Ponson 2-5

Ortiz (as a starter) 4-6

While no one has been amazing for us (Santana has been good, but not Santana good), I wouldn't miss Silva very much.

I think the Twins would miss Silva more than you think. Every team needs that 'horse' in the middle of the rotation who can eat innings. Silva this year has 180.1 innings with a 4.32 ERA. He has a 2.3:1 Strikeout to walk ratio. He is an effective middle of the rotation guy. That is a lot of innings to replace if he is gone.

He is probably not a number two guy...but like I said, you need those innings eaters in the middle of the rotation. He would be hard to replace. He's certainly more effective than Bonser or Garza.

If Liriano can come back healthy, next year you have Santana, Liriano, Silva, Baker, then it is between Garza, Bonser, and Slowey for the fifth spot. That is IF Liriano is healthy, and IF he can be even close to as effective as he was last year.

I'm not saying I want him back, but with the history of Ryan, he seems to carry one every year. Good points Jarrod, also in 6 of silva's starts, the twins have been shut out.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
