Guerrier in, Baker out and here comes Liriano!

5 posts in this topic

Matt Guerrier will be taking Bakers spot in the rotation against oakland and Liriano will be back with the team as well!! Now if only we could have a healthy Radke it would be perfect! It will be a great stretch run, I'm looking forward to the opportunity to catch and maybe pass Detroit... it could happen right? I mean just because they had like a 12 or 14 game lead on the twins doesn't mean it would be the biggest choke ever does it? or does it? I guess it will have to happen first and then we can have that discussion. wink.gif

It's nice to see that management is finally playing to win. There's no guarantee that Guerrier will get past three innings but it gives guys a clue that they better nut up.

I see the Twins passing Detroit and the race coming down to the last series of the season with the pale sux.

How cool would that be???

If that actually happens I will not fault the kitties one bit. They set the bar pretty darn high at the begining of the season and the catching up from the rest of the teams is happening fairly slowly. Plus, the Twins had to win like a billion games just to catch up.

AL Central is the most exciting division in MLB this year.

Now if Guerrier can take the heat, Radke gets healthy, Liriano stays healthy for a while, gosh I like the way the Twins look going into October.

Just also pray that Santana stays healthy. Face facts, the Twins will live and die with that guy no matter what the rest of the rotation is.

I almost felt lucky that I got to go sit in Row 5 on Sunday for the masterpiece. We were out in left field but you could still tell the man was on his top game. Best time I had at the ball park ever.

DD...I was at the game on Sunday too, and Johan was just plain filthy. The standing ovation he received after leaving the game gave me chills. Combine that with tons of offense (3 triples) and it was one of the best Twins games I've ever been to.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
