Garza's first start

17 posts in this topic

I hope Garza's effort tonight matches the hype. History says he won't make the fifth inning.

Even if he is doing well I doubt he'll go past 5.

My prediction is 5 innings, 2 runs, 4-5 strikeouts and then the bullpen takes over.

I don't think they want to throw the kid out for 7+ innings right away. 6 is the absolute most unless he is throwing a no hitter.

All we can hope is that he isn't another Eddie Bane or David Clyde...

Hes a deep game pitcher. I think if he's crusing they'll let him go.

I havent been this excited for a game all year!

Top of the 2nd 5-0 TOR they sure do like his fastball. Didn't someone say here that any ML batter can hit a fastball. O wait that was me... Gee I hope something good happens here ... 7 hits so far I can't write anymore..

This is both good and bad.

Bad that we are losing.

Good that he is getting MLB experience.

Cant judge a pitcher his age on his first MLB start.

With all of those big series with Detroit and Chicago. smirk.gif

Pitched a lot like Scott Baker. Good stuff but can't live up in the zone. I can only imagine how nervous he was. Will see I'm sure he'll get at least 2 maybe 3 more starts. Can't get much worse... ooo.gif

Chances of Making the playoffs. I believe are about over with. We don't have a good rotation. Silva is off and on. Baker's probably going to get beat up today to. I love the Twins, but I'm afraid it's going to take a miracle to make the playoffs.

I just read a stat today on trib.com and of the 60 + pitches he threw last night, 45-49 of them were fastballs ooo.gif When anybody at the plate is sitting on a fastball, they will pounce all over it.

Hopefully Anderson will be able to help him with his slider and curveball.

I'm not expecting big things from him this year. I had a hunch he wasn't going to be effective because they did say he had great control of his fastball, but all his other pitchs were pretty questionable. They definately needed some work more or less.

It's pretty clear that Gardy didn't learn anything from TK. Despite who's calling the shots, TK would have had Garza pitch some relief to get a taste, build some confidence and see if he had the junk it took to be a starter.

Reusse had a nice piece today on Ron Davis. Back in those days, it was pretty easy to get seats where you could see his stuff. He pitched for today's KC back them.

In Gardy defense, They don't need relief pitchers they need starters. You don't mess with the #1 bull pen giving somebody innings to practice. I think he was not ready to be called up, but was and now that he is he will have to learn from his outing. Kid's got stuff, just has to learn how to pitch. Last I look the manager is Gardy, TK is retired.

traded WHO for a pitcher???? I can't remember the last time the Twins traded for a pitcher at the deadline other than Rick Reed---glad he's long gone.

THE twins did it right by not making a move. They are young- keep them together-- and this year is a long way from over-- Silva - Radke- Santanna-- still can win alot of games, plus with days off-- they only need one start from a 4th guy.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
