Twins sign Adam Everett

Thursday, December 13th, 2007 The Twins have signed former Houston Astros shortstop Adam Everett, a team official confirmed to the Star Tribune on Thursday.

The signing was originally reported by FoxSports and La Velle had the news confirmed. The Twins look for Everett to be their starting shortstop. Scouts rave about his defense. The Astros non-tendered Everett following their trade Wednesday for Baltimore shortstop Miguel Tejada.

Everett, who turns 31 on Feb. 2, batted .232 with a .281 on-base percentage and .318 slugging percentage in 66 games with the Astros last season and missed three months with a broken leg. His career batting average is .248

This isnt exactly filling ang offensive holes in our lineup. But I guess it isnt down grading from what we had either.

Good glove and mediocre bat. He hit 11 homers in 05 but struck out over 100 times, too. Guess that means Casilla starts the season at Rochester.

It is too downgrading offensively, and at a major clip.

A .281 OBP, that has to be one of the worst in the league. Same with his .318 slugging. Speaking of slug, this guy sounds like one. I would rather give Ploufe or Casilla or someone a shot than this garbage. Juan Castro is a better player than Everett. He better just be signed to a minor league deal or be used as a defensive replacement, because if this is what we are gonna roll with at SS, then there is no hope for them.

Wow what a pickup! We have to have the worst offensive infield in baseball.

Our only hope is that he was just brought in to compete for a job or that he will be used off the bench late in games. You sure think we could have picked someone up cheaper than 2.8 mill though. That leads me to believe they want to start the season with him as the starting SS. crazy.gif

I think Harris will play 2B. That would still leave Casilla and little Nicky with nowhere to play though. Hopefully Casilla grows up alot this year and grabs the job. If he can get on base at a .350 or better clip, slot him in as a leadoff hitter. Once on the bases, he is exciting to watch.

Willy --

I agree with you. Castilla is fun to watch and I hope he can make some big strides.

Everett is a horrible offensive player, but a nice fielder. I am a little surprised by this signing. I hope somebody beats him out.

I don't get it. If they didn't trade Harris to fill the SS slot, why the h*ll did they trade Bartlett? To use Harris as a utility guy? We already have too many of those.

bartlet was tough to let go in my opinion, but it was probally what the devil rays wanted to get young. the twins do not loose much for offense, and gain defense. who knows, a different team, and new chemistry, he may do very good for the twins.

we still need a DH!!!!!!!

We will be just fine at DH with Kubel. He hit pretty well the last couple months of the season.

kubel is average or below average at best. we need a hitter that will hit 30+ homers and 100+ rbi's.

remember we just lost a 30 100 guy in hunter.

KUBEL WILL RAKE THIS YEAR. MARK IT DOWN!!

Now this signing makes a little more sense. Lamb is by all accounts a below average fielder, Everett one of the best in the game. Plus they know each other. Should work out okay.

Kubel's numbers aren't all that different than Young's, I hate to tell you. Hopefully his knee is fully healed & he starts to show what he promised to do in his minor league days.

      Sunday, different lake, different observations. I saw a few beds, but there were not any fish on them. I caught about two dozen gills and only one was female.

      I am ready to fish now that turkey season is done for my nephew

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.  
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
