Boofs Weight

14 posts in this topic

Guess when Boof got to camp all the other players could hardly recognize him- he lost 30 lbs in the offseason. I think Boof should be the ace for a season and see what happens.

I like boof. Did a great job two seasons ago, then last season kind of had a few problems. hopefully he can turn it around. I really like the way he goes after hitters.

i think hes going to have a great season. The man is commited to the game of baseball, any by getting into shape, is only going to help him out.

Loosing 30lbs will help his stamina. Hopefully he can keep the weight off as the season progresses - hard to do when you travel a lot.

Eating Fruits?

I thought you were talking about some of the Cubbies up in "Boys Town". They eat a lot of fruits up there, right GENO??? LOL

I ran into Boof a couple weeks ago at a baseball convention, and he probably lost more than that. He is thin.

I sure hope the loss of weights doesn't take away from his velocity...

According to today ST. Paul PP, he has added velocity.

Yes, hopefully Boof can regain the form he showed in the second half of 06. He was a solid starter usually good for 7 strong innings during that time.

I like his stuff, he has a great curveball and throws fairly hard. He also seems to go right at hitters and when he is on, that's a good thing. He has high strikeout rates. Hopefully this weight loss helps him stay consistent and he can have a breakout year, cause if he doesn't, there are lots of young pitcher in our system right now that want a shot.

You have to root for a guy like Boof. I think he will become the pitcher he was meant to be.

Like --

4.15 ERA 14 wins and 170 Ks.

That is not Santana-Like but very solid for any team's Number 3 starter -- maybe outside shot at 3.35 17 wins and 200 Ks -- certainly possible -- nice number 2 starter.

He did tire a lot as he entered the third and fourth innings -- that boy can sweat with the best of them -- even in KC in April.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
