Brendan Harris -- YIKES!!!!!

16 posts in this topic

Wow -- I think my twin second-graders field better than him.

Everyone know that he can hit some, but he is 27 and has been with like five organizations.

Not good.

Everytime I heard a play to him -- he booted the ball, didn;t charge it or dlew the double play.

My dad saw him in Fla and said he did nOT look comfortable at second.

I think he has booted three double plays already.

Ummmmmm ... I wonder what Nicky is doing -- hopefully working on his hitting. grin.gif

No Punto. I would rather see them go with a well trained golden retriever than him.

Seriously though if Harris isn't worth a squat, then Casilla should get a chance. He at least has some potential to be good and from what I have read has looked good this spring. If this season is truly a rebuilding year, no sense to play Punto, we know what we have with him. .245/.314/.321 career hitter. Take out his one good year in 06 and it would be even worse. PUKE!

As far as Harris vs Punto --

I can understand having some trouble hitting ML pitching, but when you are 27 and every Babe Ruth team in the country can field better than you ... that is NOT good.

Its just pre-season, look at the numbers in spring and everything will change in the regular season. It does every year. Just gotta give it a little time to pan out and get all the guys on the same page together.

Don't crack on the newcomer until Punto gets above the Mendoza.

I am afraid that Chili Davis might be a better second baseman than Harris.

I don't think the Twins even issued Chili a glove. ;\)

Chili played defense in seven games for the Twins over three seasons. One game at first base and the rest in the outfield. He had a perfect fielding percentage. Guess you might have called him the ultimate emergency defensive replacement.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
