Just think if we had Shannon Stewart!

Recommended Posts

As good as we are now, just think where we'd be with Shannon Stewart in the line up hitting .300 or better. Shannon Stewart has always been one of my favorite players. He keeps his mouth shut and goes to work. He plays all out, running into walls getting clutch hits and whathave u. What did he do on his first game back from Injury this year?..only went 4 for 4!!!!!!! I hope there is a way to bring him back next year if we can!

I know he has injury issues, but alot of guys who were counted out have come back to have productive careers.

I have to aggree. There has been alot of situations where he would have been able to hit in the clutch, or at least better then situations where people are not getting it done. he will not be back next year i dont beleive, but if they are smart, they will sign him.

The only way I'd want Stewart back is a DH. By next year his arm will be so bad that runners will score from second base on a sacrifice fly. Bad thing is the Twins will never have a full time DH. They just like to use the spot in the order for rehab abs. Tough to get into a groove with inconsistant abs. Last year Lecroy would get a little something going and then wouldn't play for the better part of a week because someone would get pulled off the field to heal.

Honestly I don't think we would be much better off if Stewart was back in the lineup. The 4 runners Tyner threw out at would have been safe so that is atleast 3 extra runs in close games, plus Tyner would be the man you are sitting down to make room for Stewart and Tyner is hitting over .300 as well. The only thing Stewart would bring is a little more power but I don't think that makes up for his terrible arm.

Also he has been tried at DH a few times over his career and he can't do it. He has said he needs the routine of playing in the field to get into the groove at the plate.

For what Stewart will cost us its just not worth it for a player with a terrible arm and who is on the DL atleast twice a year. Once your feet go on that turf they will always bother you.

He'll be released, they need that money to be distributed elsewhere.

Well said nofishfisherman, the only thing you left out are the balls that Tyner gets to that Stewart won't, partly because of a little more speed, but mostly because he's much better at reading the ball & gets a good jump. I'd say he's as good of a defensive left fielder as I've seen in the league this year. It's like have Jacque back in left like he used to be.

I'm not bashing Stewart because I agree he's a fantastic hitter & a good guy, but there's no way he's back with the Twins. I don't think it makes sense if they could sign him for much less that I think it will take. Tyner has to start next year, I suppose if they don't resign Hunter you could make a case for Tyner in center & Stewart in left, but I don't think he's got much left in the tank. He's game, I just don't think his body is.

Sledneck, I think your as high with this post as you think I am about Mauer. My god a 2 month player and we have that already in Tyner in 3 weeks. 4 outfield assists in 3 weeks, more than Stewy in a career. Avg. about the same. Can we agree to dissagree without slamming each other? You will think i'm even crazier with this prediction, trade Francisco. He's a 2-3 year pitcher, with the arm angle, he's another TJ in a heartbeat. His value has already dropped. Great pitcher for now, but I would take a power 3rd baseman or left fielder for him soon. A big name player only.

My prediction. Stewart signs with another team next year, makes the all-star team and plays the whole season.

Stewart was moved to the 60-day DL to make rome for Nevin. Guess we've seen the last of him.

      Anyone fishing this lake? How is the ice and bite?
    • freeman82
      has anyone been out to swan lake thinking of going this weekend. never been to this lake but have heard good things.

      Only ice is in McQuade harbor and Knife River, and not much at that.  Cohos are biting really well on some days for guys fishing off the Two Harbors break wall. Pretty miserable conditions in which to fish, though....    South shore has good ice around Washburn, and a few cohos mixed in with good catches of Browns, spoke, and whitefish. Cohos on MN side have averaged 13-14" this winter.

      I have been using a Strikemaster Lithium Lazer 50v electric auger the last couple years. Very happy with it, but I'm limited to about 70-100 feet of ice drilled per charge, depending on temp/hardness of ice. That's more than enough for most bluegill trips, but it's lacking when the ice gets thick and I'm trying to find walleyes on big water during full-day trips. I find myself not drilling as many holes as I would like in an attempt to ration the charge. I just picked up an Eskimo P1 Rocket 8" propane auger. My buddy has the 10" and it's the best auger I've ever used. If anyone wants to really aerate a lake, the Rocket fits the bill. I'll use this along with the Strikemaster electric to meet all of my drilling needs. I haven't used the Rocket yet. It's in the mail. I'm excited at it's light weight in particular. 26 pounds.

      Next time you give it a try. Take a flash light and look up to make sure the throttle flapper is returning to the closed position when you let off the gas and it dies. I have had them stick open or half open then your more or less trying to restart it at half or full throttle which may just be flooding it out. It's either starving for gas or flooding.  Let us know if you solve it.  Good Luck.

      I never fished north of Wahpeton. When I fished down there I'd go south. There's normally some walleye biting early in the year south of the main road through town. I don't know how it would be this time of year. I always fished it first ice because that was usually fishable before most lakes. If you do go out I'd recommend bringing someone along and having a chisel along to check ice. That river ice can be very inconsistent.

      I ordered a rebuild kit from amazon for less than $5.00, so hopefully that will help.  YouTube has some videos on installing it.  It is an odd thing, if it sits for a while it will start and I can run it.  Once I take it off full throttle, it will die and I can't get it to restart.  Thanks for the posts so far, I appreciate it.

      Anyone ever fish this lake? Buddy of mine wants to try it?

      For cleaning carbs I use Gumout spray with the tube on it to shoot through all the passage ways. If I'm finding one not flowing well or clogged I like to use a gas welding tip cleaner. There are a lot of sizes and you don't have to jam something to big through it which could widen and ruin the flow. I got a nice pretty new little chain saw from a guy who just could not get it running for Free. Found that no spray would go through the main jet when I was cleaning the carb. Used the tip cleaner to knock out a piece of saw dust, and clear our Deer trails out really nice this year! Like Wanderer and Borch said, rebuild kits are cheap and a good thing to do if it's been gummed up.  p.s those little piss-ant needle flow valve springs are really fun to get back in place with fat fingers! They like to jump off the work bench and hide!!

      Sounds fun Jeff!, The way the ice has set up this year maybe it will happen after all. I would like to start getting a few prizes together for Biggest Cat, and also a kids division. Hopefully someone can bring a few good ones to the scales...
