Liriano headed to DL

6 posts in this topic

I heard them say something last night after the game and I about cried myself.

It's gonna be a tough go without him if he is indeed injured. Hopefully it is muscular and a few days off or stint on the 15 day will cure him for the stretch run and the Twins can keep it close. Guys need to really step up now.

They have no choice now but to call up Garza. If they don't, they are signaling defeat.

Good news is the the White Sox and Red Sox are all struggling in their owns ways. Neither team has the starting rotation playing well and we are only 1/2 game out right now. If we get Liriano back at all this year and Garza comes up and does what we all hope he can do we still have a chance. Even if Liriano is out the rest of the year I don't think we are dead in the water, it will be tougher and we need others to step up but I think it can still be done. But they need to be safe with Liriano, don't rush him. We need him for the next 5 years more then we need him for the next 7-8 weeks.

I am with you. Caution is the way to go with Liriano. We want him for a long time, not just for the Wild Card push of 2006.

Too bad. I wonder if he's going to have a lot of problems long-term with that violent motion of his. Part of the reason they were able to obtain him was his history of breaking down. You hate to tamper with that kind of "stuff" but it's obviously putting a lot of strain on his 22-year old arm, & his body isn't going to get any more resilient as he gets older.

Maximum12 is exactly right about the strain on a 22-year-old arm. You can't put the young guys into this kind of strain (of a full major-league season) too early in their careers. Which is why the young players need to spend some seasons in the minors.

Which is why it is entirely too early to call up Garza.

Maybe in September 2007, then give him a shot in 2008.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
