Jesse Crain=POO POO

Recommended Posts

SledNeck

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.

8-Ball

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!!!

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.

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!

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.

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.

      Thanks, for the info.  I'll just look at the Steelhead and Looper on my wall to refresh my memory!

      Have heard of very few.  An occasional rainbow (looper and steelhead, make sure to learn the difference) mixed in with the catch in Two Harbors, along with lake trout near the bottom on the right day.  I've seen a few cruising under the ice in McQuade, but pretty slow there.  Rainbow action will pick up as spring progresses.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.
