You never know what you are going to get w/ Silva. It is hard to figure him out. We need him BIG TIME to get a decent threesome when/if we get into playoffs. I wonder if he has an injury of some sort but won't tell mgmt. about it. Or is it all in his head?

Silva was acting as if he didn't care out there, that would eat me up as a teammate! One game, no ground lost.

Sad to say but with the pitching the Twins have left any hope for them in the playoffs is probably out the window.You have Santana and that is it.Radke hurt and nothing else to the final run.

They have a bad game and nearly everyone on this site will banter... That guy is garbage! We have no chance. The twinkies are 1/2 game back. Chicago doesn't have much pitching either. Its going to be a fun race to the finish. laugh.gif

I was one who yesterday said they should sweep Baltimore (trying to stay positive), I was wrong. After watching last night's game I think its going to be the other way around. I'm sorry but you dont lose like the Twins did last night to a team that at the time was 14 game's under 500. You said Chicago doesnt have much pitching either, I would rather take their starting staff (unless your saying the whole staff)over the Twins with and exeption of Santana (Liriano when healty). Chicago has 5 yes 5 quality starters that can start on any given day and they all have double digit wins. The Twins have 1 quality starter in Santana and the rest are question marks. Silva can look good at times but inconsistant, Radke has been pitching well of late but having a bad shoulder won't help any down the stretch. Then our 3rd and 4th starters are question marks when they take the mound. At least when any of the Chicago starters pitch they have a good chance to win the game.

Jeez! I guess we better quit playing games then if we don't have a chance. Get back to us this weekend after we take the Sox to the woodshed and take over the wildcard lead.

P.S. Liriano may come back too and you haven't seen Garza pitch like he can yet. He will be good tonight I'll bet.

I don't know what team you're watching. Right now the Sox pitching is in a heck of alot worse shape than the Twins is. Garland is the ONLY one of those guys that is pitching worth a darn right now.

You guys need to be a little more level headed. Don't jump on and off the bandwagon with every single win or loss. You don't win every single game in baseball. We will come back from this. I am not worried.

Some of you guys are incredible. One loss and all of a sudden we have no chance, remember even great basbeall teams will lose 50-70 games a year.

Lets all settle down and realize that Chicago also lost last night so that loss meant nothing. You can't go out everyday without ever having a bad game it just won't happen.

Just be positive and have fun. You'll live longer that way.

Good call!!!!! Baseball is a game of what if's and almosts. Look at last nights game. The guy that had only, what eight home runs all year hammered three. Congrats to him. Something he can tell his grandchildren 20 years from now. Minnesota went up against a good pitcher too. Bravo to him too!!! The best thing about this is we lost no ground. Nothing has changed. Some nights Silvi is a God and the next he's out there pitching batting practice. Who knows maybe Gardie should have played the bullpen soomer. I do have to agree Chicago's pitchers are hurting also. In a week or so the Twins will bring up a few more pitchers and who knows maybe one of them will get hot in front of the huge crowds. Go Twinkies. Still have many game to go. Hopefully the Twins will keep showing the determination the have showed since June 8th and have a strong finish.

I'll admit that I was frustrated, actually I was disgusted with Silva's performance last night. But you guys are right, we have lost no ground. We are only 1/2 game back! We also have a game in hand on the White Sox, so really we could be even!

It's gonna come down to the end of the year, I am pretty sure of that. Unless one of the teams fold after this weekend series, it will be tight until the very end so don't count the Twins out just because of one stinky game by Silva.

I'm not saying were done and throw in the towel. My contribution to this topic is plainly that Silva is as unpredictable as Paul Douglas. Haven't jumped off any bandwagon,either...

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
