Yankee series

Recommended Posts

Trainman

Well here comes the dreaded series at NYY. We're going in with the Silva-Baker-Garza rotation. Any thoughts? I see us going 1-2 unless our bats wake up.

well we wont be facing any of their aces either so maybe a high run series, hopefully the twins come out with a win or 2.

Garza had a good start on tuesday maybe he will look just as good, if we can get some run support

this could be a possible play-off matchup so this series could make or break the confidence for the twins

With the pitching we have going this series, I'll be happy with one of three. Silva is an automatic loss and either Garza or Baker will keep us within 3 runs into the 6th one game.

We WILL have to score bunches of runs to win any games this series though.

It would be good to win some to gain confidence, but the team that is going into Yankee stadium now, is not the same team that the Yankees would see in the playoffs.

Radke, Liriano, and Castillo are out. Those are three very important pieces to our team.

You forgot to mix Ernesto into the rotation. There could be a return trip to NY on the 18th for makeup game(s).

I think we need to take 2 out of 3 in this series.

I think Silva will be the downfall for this team... his losses are adding up fast!! Wait, I am one person who hates being super negative on somebody, but I'll say Silva won't win another game all year, he is absolute horse dung right now! Anybody disagree? frown.giffrown.gifcrazy.gif

I think this series is going to be painful to watch. But if you are a diehad Twins fan this year you have to watch these games and then you will enjoy when they start putting pitching an hitting and Fielding back together again. To add more problems Radke has a stress fracture in his shoulder? 2-3weeks of no throwing. I think we might have seen the last of Brad. I would give him some applause for his effort the 2nd half of the season, can't say he didn't give it his all and then some.

Twins lose 8-1. Glad we didn't waste any runs on Silva. Let's hope they give Baker and Garza a chance this weekend.

Anybody listen to the FSN post game deal? Coomer said "You really have to tip your hat to the Twins-they never gave up, and scored a run in the ninth inning." Huh? No, with a total of 4 hits and 3 errors, tonight is hardly the night to "tip your cap" to the boys. They looked really nervous and pressured out there, IMO. We really need to get a win out of this series, especially after the yawners we played against K.C.

Twins win 6-1 today. Baker pitched pretty well. Got our win. Let's see if rookie Garza can pull-off a series win!

P.S. Garza's ERA is below 3.0 if you subtract off his first start.

Yeah-and for the second outing in a row- he was quoted in the Strib saying "I was happy with the way I pitched". Say what? 4 innings-9hits-4 or 5 runs-2 dingers, and he thinks it was a good outing? Unbelievable. Too much Dos Equis, I am afraid...

      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...

      @donethat Where is this access you speak of?  I’m not familiar with “bullhead bay”.  Is there a problem with people trespassing? The access I was referring to last year looked pretty public to me.
    • Borch
      Carb kit may help.  It's plugged or gasket/diaphragm dried out or cracked.  Alternating between choke and open when running will sometimes help if diaphram.
    • Wanderer
      Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.
