Jason Tyner

Twins decided to dump Tyner and hang onto Rincon.. I know we're supposedly heavy on out fielders. But I liked Tyner. He's a good ball player. Not great, but decent.

I'll bet that Tyner will be invited to camp if no one picks him up. They'll keep Rincon around to throw in on a future trade.

I really liked Tyner to. He didn't have all the skills, but he played the game the right way.

big changes at the Dome next year. We get a formula that worked for a few years and now those players are slowly slipping away. I am optimistic they can create a new formula that will work and a group of players that will have the chemistry it takes to win.

I am expecting them to get rid of Punto next. But man I better see a big time hitter come along soon. With the loss of Hunter tyner and who knows what othe defense we have we will need offense to make up for it.

I read that Tyner may join Lew in Japan.

WINTER HAVEN, FLA. -- The Indians have signed outfielder Jason Tyner to a minor league contract. He will report to Chain of Lakes Park and work out with a group of minor league prospects who reported to camp earlier this week.

Tyner, 30, played last season with the Twins. He hit .286 (87-for-304) with 14 doubles, two triples, one homer and 22 RBI in 114 games. He hit his only homer off the Indians' Jake Westbrook on July 28 in Cleveland.

This will be Tyner's second tour with the Tribe. He spent part of the 2004 season at Class AAA Buffalo and hit .345 (48-for-139). Tyner spent parts of the last three seasons in the big leagues with the Twins.

He was Mets No. 1 pick in 1998 out of Texas A&M University.

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]
