Well on the midst of a lost season, the youth movement as well as the rest of team seems to finally be coming together.

Nice run since early July, Kepler kid looks to stick around.  Finally been fun to watch recently.

After 7+ months of no chatter, what are your thoughts?

We still watch or listen to them regularly.  Was painful first month or so but has gradually improved.  It's actually fun watching this young team grow and improve.

Definitely funner to watch now, but if we are in a youth movement we all know what needs to happen.  Not to start the the mauer bash again and i know he has hit better the last few weeks but with trevor back today would be nice to see sano at first and plouffe at third w/o mauer at dh. Let vargas dh or bring park back for another chance. As bad as some think park was he did hit 12hr w/ i believe 24 rbi in 60 some games. Mauer  9hr 42rbi in 104 games. I know its impossible to have a 24 million dollar utility player / pinch hitter but at some point gotta think about the future. Im guessing that will be after 2018 season unfortunately.  Either way at least worth watching now. Just a number is seen to think about. If mauer reaches 60 rbi which he probably wont he will make $384k per rbi. Most people bust their ass to make that in 5-10 yrs.

Sano's only asset in the field is a great arm which is meaningless at first. If he cant catch a pop fly at 3b he cant catch it if the twins hide him at 1b either.

I think the Twins needed to work with him better at RF but coming in 20lbs overweight to start the year didnt help and thats on Sano.

I don't know if Sano will become any kind of reliable fielder, anywhere.

I like his power potential, all other stages of his game leave little to be desired.  Although, he probably won't improve without playing time.  I think he destined to be a DH, with spot duty in the field.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff
