Yankee series

15 posts in this topic

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 was pleasantly surprised when I saw the final score! Go Garza..

      if this is the lake I,m thinking about isn't the only access thru a farmers yard that owns a little meat processing plant??????

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      locke lake by hasty off 94 was 90% open tonight!!!!!!

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
