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.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
