Would You Mind.....

if the Twins signed Mike Sweeney? I see the Royals aren't interested, as a strict DH, can't be any worse than Rondell White. More than likely, 20 HR potential, as long as they aren't like the Royals and think he still has 1st base potential- THAT only adds to his DL time. I think he'd be a great fit in the clubhouse

Sweeney would be a great fit for the Twins as a DH only. The second you put him out in the field he'll end up on the DL for 3-4 months. If healthy all year I would say 20 HR's would be easily attained for him and would expect more like 30+ type of production out of him. He's always been a really good player but is injured WAY too often. I would take a shot with him at DH.

The only way I take Sweeney is with a one year minimum contract. Possibly a minor league one. He is a stretch to play any position other than DH. He doesn't have alot of value. Someone will take a flyer if he is open minded. If not, he will retire.

I really honestly want JASON KUBEL as our everyday DH though. He is gonna have a breakout year this year. Look for him to hit in the .260-.290 range and jack 20 or better, might drive in close to 100 if he gets the at-bats. For all this talk we have had of top prospects, Kubel was a top 10 hitting prospect in all of baseball until he got hurt. When healthy and now that he has adjusted to MLB pitching, he can and will rake.

I would take a flyer on Sweeney with a 1yr deal. If he explodes then you lose him to free agency next year when he wants big bucks. If Sweeney bats left handed he is still better than Rondell White.

I think the Twins still need a CF. They have 4 OF right now in Monroe, Cuddyer, Kubel, and Young. Here are some free agents that could fill the CF position.

Mike Cameron,Darin Erstad,Kenny Lofton,Corey Patterson,and Scott Podsednik

Possible DH

Mike Sweeney,Sean Casey,Jeff Conine,Tony Clark,Erubiel Durazo,Robert Fick,Shea Hilenbrand,Eric Hinske,Ryan Klesko,

Russel Branyan,Morgan Ensberg,Corey Koskie,Barry Bonds,Luis Gonzalez,Shawn Green,Geoff Jenkins,Reggie Sanders,Sammy Sosa

Brad Wilkerson,Preston Wilson, and Mike Piazza

I see all these players siging 1yr deals with teams. I don't see the Twins being in the race this year so if they sign one of these guys and then deal him at the deadline and get a prospect in return that would be fine with me. Sorry to jack the thread.

I honestly think Jason Kubel needs to see an eye doctor, he squints worse than G W, and he seems to not be able to see the ball very good.

Sweeney wouldn't be the worst pickup but he can't do much more than play first and DH and that isn't the track record of players who get a sniff with the Twins.]

Kubel is a spare slap. At the end of the 2008 season, he'll be next Lew Ford who never reached expectations.

i think he would be a great player for the twins. Would fit in well with the guys that we still have here in the system.

The twins have to get a CF, and we need to get someone to play short.

were there ever large lew ford expectations??? even after his decent year, the majority of people couldnt have expected him to exceed or even match that output.

You just remember him going down in 3 pitches in a big spot in the playoffs against the yankees. There is nothing else to base that opinion on. He has solid numbers for a guy that hasn't been given a starting job yet. Even top prospects usually take a few years in the bigs before they really produce. Compare his numbers to Cuddyer or Morneau when they first came up. Kubel's are better in most categories.

He will be a cornerstone of this team for years. Bring his name up in trade talks to other teams and he would bring a nice return. This isn't some scrub like Jason Tyner we are talking about here.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
