They say, the Twins said "any set back with Liriano that he would be done for the year to protect his future". Sounds like could be done for year, not good for playoff run. In turn I hope this won't affect teams psychy(sp) for rest of the year cause they figured on his help the rest of the way.

Just said he left with left elbow pain. Silva, Garza and Boof will need to step up. Garza is in now.

I heard the Radio guys say the early report from the dugout was that they were being extra cautious and are optimistic it's not major. frown.gifconfused.gif

He left with elbow pain they said. They are probably being cautious, but it's obvious he wasn't ready yet.

I hope Garza, Boof and even Silva can pick it up. With any luck Radke will be back for the playoffs and we can patch it together in the meantime.

DAMM! smirk.gif

Sounds like the pitch he did it on was a slider that hit the dirt in front of home. Maybe he miss threw the pitch which could aggrivate even a healthy elbow.

Everyone think good thoughts!!!

With any luck he can sit for a while and be ready to go for the playoffs.

The kids too young to have him throw his arm off already. Lots of pitching years to come for him.

Garza pitched really well today. Once again there was no run support. The whole team looked a little sloppy on the field today, kinda like the wind got knocked out of 'em.

Let's hope there is good news for Liriano.

It didn't help that we got screwed on the A's only run.....

Isn't the recurring elbow situation one of the reasons we were able to get him in the first place? Seems I read that somewhere? We'll see, but if he has a chronic elbow condition..... frown.gif

Boof Bonser was actually the prospect that we were after to go with Nathan from the Giants.

Liriano was a player to be named later and has turned into what he is today. At the time we got him from the Giants he had injury problems with his elbow.

They should have shut him down for the season after this first injury. Hindsight is 20/20 though. smirk.gif

Talk about a let down. Injured Liriano AND losing 1-0. I'm not holding my breath about Radke coming back either. Let's hope the team rallies and pulls together at Cleveland.

Heard reports Liriano heard something pop in the elbow. Some radio people are saying he's done and might be looking at Tommy John surgery, which would put him on the shelf possibly until 2008. Glad we didn't lock him up with a big contract like Joe Mays. I hope surgery is not needed. Maybe he will need to learn how to use another pitch without torquing his arm so much with the slider.

He is done for this year, for sure. No way are they going to take any more chances with the kid. Sure, it is a huge blow. But we did fairly well with a patchwork rotation minus 'Cisco. MAYBE we will be ok. Think positive and maybe Silva will actually earn his 2.5 million. Yes, he is making 2.5 large... We need him now more than ever.

Just heard the ESPN guys saying that they thought it was a torn ulnar collateral ligament in the elbow and the projected time off would be 18-24 months...OUCH! That's going to leave a mark!

I love this, let all the so-called experts keep saying how the Twins are finally done after losing Liriano. Well you know what, we just finished a month without him and still have a 1 1/2 game lead in the wild card.

These experts have said we were done when.... we were 12 games out in May and one of the worst teams in baseball, when Shannon Stewart went on the shelf, when Liriano got hurt the first time, when Radke's shoulder fell off, and now when Liriano goes down today. Just watch, Santana is going to carry this pitching staff and lead guys like Garza and Boof who are just young enough and cocky enough to not realize the magnitude of this race.

It's only going to make it sweeter when Windy's White Sox are sitting at home this fall watching the Twins and Tigers in the playoffs. Then again Windy it may not be all that bad, maybe AJ can call up some of his old friends at HOM Furniture here in Minnesota and get some "free cookies too!" for all his overpaid loser teammates as you watch the Twins go to the World Series.

This team is way too tough to just roll over now. Gardy's not going to let them sulk about Liriano, instead they are going to be inspired. Get ready boys, this is going to be a memorable stretch run!

montgriz-

Couldn't of said it better myself. The Twins are not a one man show. Bonser beat the Tigers and Silva is finally getting his sinker to sink. Funny how the national media thinks the Twins are done without frisco. Would they say the same about Boston losing Schilling or the White Sox losing Garland??? Probably not- but the real story is that both of those teams are DONE and Twins continue to lead the WC race. Sox fans-- when you come to the dome the last three games of the year-- Black Magic and the piranhas will cast you a final spell that leads to ,, "Wow, What a TEAM!"

Dudes you guys forget so easy... It's about

big market baseball that's why. Look the Yankees/Redsox series is this weekend and you would think it's the world series on ESPN with the hype and the fricken red sox are 10.5 games back, mad.gif it's sickening. mad.gif Let the Twins use it as fuel I say and keep kicking butt. ESPN has there thumbs up there sweeps/ratings sphincters grin.gif Go Twins!

Montana,

Nobody said the Twinks were done. Actually the ESPN guys who said it was the ulnar collateral ligament said that it would not affect the team and he actually said he thought the Twinks would get into the playoffs. It's just that they will have to do it without Lirai-NO. Windy!

You guys have had a great past few weeks without him. Why would it change? Probably more of an emotional problem than actually losing the pitcher. No baseball fan could ever be happy about this. It's a shame. Hope he comes back strong.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
