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...

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.

      Welcome FM Chevy!  There's lots of fish to be caught in the Mighty Mississippi.  Plenty of spots to fish from shore right in or near Hastings as well as a little up river by the Wakota Bridge.  The great thing about the river is you never know what you are going catch. Carp, Suckers, Catfish, Walleye, Sauger, Bass, Gar, Big Ol' Snapper, Leather Necks etc..Cats are just starting to spawn so they might be a little challenging and inconsistent right now.  Try some live bait straight line rigs or cranks and keep moving.  I usually don't spend more then 20-30 mins in an area before I move on.  Good luck and let us know how you do!

      One word comes to mind for the catfish bite the past couple weeks, CHALLENGING.  The spawn is in full swing and it seems that nearly all the fish went to the nest at the same time.  As always, there are fish to be caught but we have to work a little harder to find them.  The best spots have been tight to structure for smaller fish with the bigger fish being very close to a drop off or areas of current.  Sit times have been 25-35 minutes to let the bigger fish find the bait and decide to bite it.  One good tactic has been to change from circle hooks to regular J style hooks and be quick on the hook set for the shorter bites.  Bait has been try it all and see what is working at any given time.  Stink baits have been working great for smaller fish.
        This weekend is the 3rd Scheels Boundary Battle Catfish Tournament.  Even with the less than stellar report many fish will be caught and weighed in this event that brings out some of the best anglers in the area and beyond.  We still have a few spots remaining if you wish to fish.  For more information www.boundarybattle.com and to enter call Brad Durick 701-739-5808
        Join us for the weigh ins, Saturday about 2-3pm at the Whopper John Little (north) Boat Landing in Grand Forks and Sunday at LaFave Park in East Grand Forks.  Awards to follow on Sunday.

      Do you know if a Remote Border Crossing Pass is still necessary? Thanks

      Water level is a little higher than normal, but not outrageous.

      I'm not sure if it's a Minnkota or other after market brand. Cabela's service center installed it and provided the quick release mount. When I took it back to them and showed the problem, they did not question the failure. Look at the lock on yours and see if when you push the locking lever over if the part of the lock is plastic or some other type non metallic material. The stub on the bottom of the motor itself is metal and connects to the plastic in the base. That's where the issue of failure lies.. If your is plastic too, then I'd question the safety and complain to who ever sold you that mount and get one that is much stronger and will not crumble like mine did.. Good luck.. I'll post the results after I find out what Cabela's comes up with... Kaz

      Mayflies were just getting started on the west end of the lake last weekend.

      Thanks! I'm glad to be here and so far absolutely love this state. The cold didn't bother me one bit and I learned that ice fishing is fun.    People look down on spinnerbaits? Never heard that but it wouldn't bother me if they did. I'll fish my way and they can fish their way.   Roland is absolutely right. I've noticed that there seem to be an abundance of bass in that 2-5 pound class, at least where I fish. I hardly ever find a skinny bass, they're all footballs.   Really I enjoy the pike though. They are great fighters and great tasting. Of course we don't have those down south and I've really grown to appreciate them.
