      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast.

Detroit series

Recommended Posts

Trainman

Big series coming up at Detroit. I hope Liriano is ready to go. Mike Smith did pretty average today. We need to somehow claw our way ahead into the wildcard standings. Detroit just won 3 games by 1 point. Twins hitting is pretty hot right now. Let's see what happens!!

I hope that was the last time we see Mike Smith. With his 89 mph fastball and no control. frown.gif Trade him to the royals. grin.gif Anyone and everyone hits the royals! It will be a fun series against Detroit. Hopefully we don't get crushed again...

I agree- big series agst the Tigers. Potential ALCS matchup, as first two games of this potential ALCS would be played in Detriot. But no bigger than when we play the W.sox and Red sox-- teams we play on the road in the future.

I think I like the Twins chances better on the road right now (won 8 in a row). If we can give Liranio a 2 run lead like the Tigers did for Miner 10 days ago-- I like our chances.

Sled --

I think they are more concerned about "freaking" Garza out getting him to the show early. Smith is not in furute plans, in my opinion.

BTW -- Bring up Garza -- Sink or swim pretty soon. cool.gif

Smith might have been more ready only becuase he might have hit the peak of his potential or closer to it then Garza. It will be a short career for him if this is true though.

I will give him a slight pass on yesterdays start, lots of nerves out there and it was crazy hot it sounded like.

I might give Smith one more start to give him an honest shot but then if it still goes the wrong way i would give Garza a call up regardless. I really thought between Baker, Boof and Smith they could find a guy to give them atleast a decent start every other start.

Garza should be up soon, I think the Twins are running out of options.

Should be fun. Like a couple weeks ago, if we win one, that keeps you guys fighting for the wild card, at best. Tigers do not need to treat it as any more important than a series agains KC or Cleveland. The only way we can get in any trouble at all would be if we get swept. Same as before, with our pitching, that shouldn't happen. Hope the Twins get the wild card, as that puts us agianst the West. You guys can have the Yankees first round. Good luck to you.

if we can get into the playoffs I would love a shot at the Yanks again. They have had our number in the playoffs but I think we are about due.

We have better all around pitching then they do and now we have some bats in our lineup that might make you sweat a little at times. No more of the punchless Twins. We can hit back now.

yes-- but if the White SOX win the W.c you still play the west. Only way you play the Yanks/Red Sox is if one of them wins the WC. I will remind you that Chicago Cubs in 1969 had a 8-10 game lead over the Mets in late Aug, with a winner % similar to what the Tigers have now, and won like 8 of their last 32games to finish way behind the Mets.

Not over till , till it's over.

Tyner getting doubled up in the 7th and Cuddies E in the bottom of the 7th killed the Twins. Rabe scores-- it's no longer Jesse Crain pitching the bottom half. Reyes or Rincon and your likely looking at different ending to the game.

Hope Lariano is OK. Clearly not the regular guy last night. 10 hits in four innings. Considering his age, don't you shut him down (DL) a while? Take no chances there. Our Verlander missed his last start. They're talking about a "tired shoulder," whatever that is. He has pitched more innings this year than any year in his life, and it's only early August. Those two are the future - can't take chances. Tigers have three more wins out of 112 games than the '84 Tigers had.

I agree with Liraino's arm.He did not have anything for them last night.It makes you wonder if they brought him back a little fast and just maybe the body needs a longer rest.Why ruin the future.He looked bad.

Anyone excited for tonight's game? Should be a great matchup. I just hope Santana is back to his old ways. He was bad last time against the Royals.

While we really have no chance of catching Detroit, taking the series from them in their park would do a lot for the confidence of the Twins. And every win helps us in the wild card.

Down to Earth

It would be great if the Twins can pull out a win tonight. Bonderman got roughed up a bit by the Tribe in his last outing, so maybe that dreadful inning he had last weekend against the Twins shook him a bit.

Can't but help look forward to the weekend though. Halladay is pitching today for the Jays, so the Twins will get through the series without having to face him. Detroit is at Chicago as well.

Looks like an exciting finish for the wild card hunt.

JUSTIN "MOONSHOT" MORNEAU is da man!! Boy did that 2 run SHOT shut those Detroilet fans at the game right up. How sweet, right after Inge went two run bomb on Cy Santana. It was a great series... 2 out of 3 in Detroilet is good.

Very good 3 game set to watch and we picked up one game on Detroit with it so close everyone of the next 50 games will be important. Always great to have a team in the hunt and gives us fans something to do. Those guys must be having so much fun sitting in the dugout knowing that they are not out of any game. Sure do look like they are having fun after that blast!!!

M&M Boys STRIKE!!!!

Mauer BB was huge also-- but Morneau's shot is the most I have been excited with GOrdo going absoultely nuts since AJ's shot agst OAkland in 2002. This team really show's some guts--- your best pitcher, pitching a a heck of game- gives up the lead on a 2-run shot and the home crowd goes nuts in the bot7. -- Most teams this year agst the tigers- roll over. But the Twins responded like champs. Great relief from Reyes-Rincon and Nathan. WOW!!! Too me-- it's the Twins biggest win of the year.

I hope Tiger fans don't "shut-up." It was a great series. Our guy made a bad pitch. It's location, location, location, with a 100 mph fastball. If in a good hitters wheelhouse (that one was) they go out at least as fast as they come in. Zumaya is a rookie. That is not the first, or even the second, big home run he has given up. He is still learning. Thought we had you when Inge hit his. Both teams have had many late inning rallies. Sure is fun. Good luck to you. I do hope you make the playoffs. Don't like Chicago. You're better than Boston. I do fear the Yankees.

If you look back through RJ's posts, you'll notice a very similar tone in all of them. It's always a pleasure to read his posts...they're always competitive, yet very good natured and knowledgeable. Thanks, RJ!

Great series!!!

I agree with you about RJ's posts- love to read them- sensible, down to earth, great fan to discus bb with.

100 mph fastballs don't leave the yard very often, nomatter where they are though. 75 mph change-ups however will leave the yard very often when left in the middle of the plate, like Santana did to Inge. My "in-laws" are Tiger fans, so I have a little more incentive for the Twins to do well against them.( some of them are not as sensible a fan as RJ) grin.gif The rest of the year should be interesting!!!!!!!!!

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.
