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.

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.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.
