Jesse Crain=POO POO

177 posts in this topic

When I see him warming up in the pen in a close game, I want to throw stuff at the TV. The other night with the bases loaded was the very last straw. Then tonite!

Thoughts?

Sled, I think it's a case with Gardy about protecting the rookies. I will agree, with all the guy's in the pen, Crain makes my hair on the neck stand up. By the way, where's Baker been? couple of opportunities to pitch in blowouts lately.

Tonight I think was a good guess by the kid at the plate. Was not too bad a pitch, yeah, it was down broadway, but low. He just went down and got it. He at least came out and had a 1-2-3 eighth... Still has pretty decent numbers. He stunk early, like most of the staff did. Huge win tonight-apparently no let-down after the bad 'Cisco news. Only 1 game behind the Kitties!

totally agree--- HUGE WIN for the Twins!!! instead of being 2 games behind the kitty cats and 1 ahead of the Sox, it's a full game ahead for both. Huge momentum booster after (or was it) such bad news. I think the TWins make the playoffs regardless of Radke. If he can pitch in playoffs,, watch out, they may surprise the baseball nation and likely have much of the nation behind them. I think Santanna will lose a game thou in his last few starts, just hope it's not agst the White sox!!!!! He's still a 20 game winner with a under 3 ERA and over 250 strikeouts. Put that on the board.

I felt the same way at the start of the season, but lately, Crain has been lights out other than last night.

We will need him down the stretch. These young arms will not consistently get us into the 7th inning, so we are gonna need Jesse big time. I actually think he has found his stroke. Last night was a slip up, but after that first batter, he was unhittable.

You can't expect these guys to give never give up a run. It wasn't even that bad of a pitch. The guy went down and got it. Crain has been very consistant over the last couple of years with the exception of early this year.

He has been real good for sure.

One lucky swing and people start getting on him. It was a decent pitch the batter just did a real good job getting wood on it. Remember that these pitchers are throwing to batters that are paid big dollars to hit the ball. You can't go all year without giving up a homer now and again to quality hitters, it happens. Baseball has alot of luck involved.

The other 4 batters he faced he was dominating, it really was just one pretty good pitch and one really good swing.

We still won the game.

How about Boof, another 6 inning 1 run outing. I'll take that everyday of the week. He really figured something out while back in the minors. I am happy for him.

The Boof, The Boof, The Boof is on FIRE!!!

Just heard Rick Anderson say Baker will start Sunday. Explains why he hasn't been used lately out of the pen.

Rick Anderson said on KFAN that the first pitch was suppose to be a changeup and that the signs got screwd up and fast ball was thrown.

Well Bartlet takes the blame for last night.

Yeah I suppose he should, I mean after all he could have turned the most incredible double play of the year as he was about to get taken out at second! Thats crazy talk, I'd say it was a team loss... how many guys did they leave on base all night long? I believe it was eleven.

the guy was 10 feet from first when the throw went skipping by morneau. Maybe Bartlett will hit 3 homers today and we'll forget all about it. Atleast the sox and garland lost, YAY! Rain stopped, time to go hunting!

Something is wrong with this guy. I just get bad bad feelings.

I guess he has a torn right labrum & rotator cuff. No wonder he hasn't been right all season. Sounds like he has been pitching with it for awhile.

Sledneck, I sense tension with you when you speak of Crain.

I have a feel that you dont really care for Crain.

Im sures hes a great guy, but he's really hurt the team. Especially since Gardy and Ryan like to give everyone 10 chances before they make a move.

      Refresh my memory... If we just go into Trout Lake for the day, we are not required to get a permit in advance. We just fill out the form at the portage. Is that correct?
    • Avid Angler
      Yeah that is the one.

      Thanks for the information!  Whenever I'm moving, I use a ram mount to secure my bow mount. I just got the Ulterra this spring.  I had a Terova on my last boat. I was going across the lake in 3 footers and the locking mechanism failed and the motor deployed. Ever since then, I secure it for a piece of mind.

      One of my trolling motor batteries decided to take a crap on me so it didn't have enough power to go into the wind so  that made it tough...we tried a few drifts in areas that looked good for eyes, but didn't pan out....We went to a different spot and started catching nice sized gills on the rigs so we decided to just say screw walleyes and go for gills (I could tell the gf wasn't digging the 20mph wind in the face lol). So we went to a spot I've fished in the winter and ended up catching a 20,24"...We caught them not to long before we left right in the same area.... I've never fished it in the summer before so I wasn't expecting much...The look on my gfs face when she caught the 24 was priceless though so I was happy.

      In no way am I trying to fire up a catch and release vs catch and grease fight.  Admins, please delete any comments like that. I am curious about everyone's thoughts and knowledge on mercury in fish.    It seems Walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat via DNR and MDH surveys but I know the fishing for eyes is such a tradition up here. A lot of walleye are eaten in Minnesota every year as well as Pike and Bass which also can be high in mercury because they are high on the food chain. Does anyone worry about it or is this something that is overhyped? I'm a bit careful where I fish because my wife is pregant and I don't want her eating too much mercury. I'm still kinda new to the state so I trust the knowledge of locals more so than DNR in a lot of situations.    For example, in TN (where I moved from) our DNR says do not eat ANY fish from the Mississippi river. I'd say it's pretty nasty by the time it gets that far south but there are river rats as far down as Louisiana eating catfish and bass all year long and you don't hear of them dying from mercury poisoning or having other effects of it. At least not thay I've heard or read.    I'm very curious to know your opinions on the matter. I don't catch many walleye anyway but I do love eating Pike and other fish. It's so satisfying to work hard for a fresh meal but do I have to continue to be super cautious of what lakes I eat a Pike from? Seems like the closer to the metro, the more dangerous it can be...or is it? Some of the huge lakes up North are full of mercury too.

      Well it end up being 2 broken live well pumps being broken.  The pumps would pump water into the live wells but also be spraying water into the back compartment of the boat.  That's where my water was coming from.  I would like to thank those that replied suggestions back.
