Twins win+Tiger loss tonight =first place in AL central

30 posts in this topic

With the momentum of our win against Boston last night combined with the Sox pistol-whipping the sinking Tigers last night, I like our chances of snagging the division lead from the Tigers. Sweet! Just hope I don't eat crow pie for breakfast tomorrow morn... crazy.gif

Indeed Buzz, indeed! What do you think about tonight? BTW, you been out fishing for the BIGGUNS lately? I haven't been out because of boat limitations, but I would suggest that you try that one area I showed you last year for the next couple weeks wink.gif.

WE need to get out again and hit Tonka! I was hoping Saturday morning would work out, I'm still not certain. If I can get out, I will let you know... are you available this Saturday morning? I haven't had alot of luck this year muskie fishing, but then again I'm usually taking photo's. shocked.gifwink.gif

About tonight, I see Morneau hitting a bomb off of Schilling with Boof keeping the spiralling Sox off balance. Twins 5 Red Sox 3

Available? yes! As you can see by my avatar, my boat is no match for yours. Actually, I've been plagued by boat motor problemas all year mad.gif. Fortunately I'll have things up and running again by next week, so that's good. Yeah, just let me know, buzz, and hopefully we'll get a big toothy in the boat. You still got my e-mail address?

No call on the Tiger/Sox game?

Yes, I have it and will let you know by Friday okay. I stole your muskie candy holder idea - PVC tubes in a bucket! It works out nicely!

I'd hope the White Sox win bigtime! 8 - 2

Better than paying outragous prices for conventional musky candy holders...

With a guy named Boof going against Shilling? Tigers will be 1 1/2 up by midnite. I hear crow tastes good if you put enough salt on it.

Wishful thinking... I look at it more like the Twins have always hit fastball pitchers well, including Schilling and Boof is pitching very well.... on the other hand Judy garland is also pitching well and Bonderbunk isn't!! So lets just say I see the Twins 1/2 game up... lets see who's right? wink.gif

How about a half game? If they hold the lead as of now. If not, I hope you like your crow...

Are you guys ever gonna lose? Not sure either of us are eating crow this morning. We both misses by just a litle bit. Tigers actually player small ball last nite. Couple Sac Bunts, some hit and runs, and then another home run by Mags (third of the series). Screwy one game in Baltimore this afternoon and start a three game series in KC tomorrow. We've won eleven of twelve against KC this year. I'm not sure six more against them is a good thing.

Sox are gone. Two team race. Question --- would you rather play the Yankees in a five game series or Seven?

Bobby Bass is right on!! All I can say is that the Twins were so patient against Schilling last night... he was up to 80 something pitches in the 4th inning and had to be taken out because of his pitch count! We had him on the ropes more innings than not, but give him credit for getting out of tough situations like a true veteran stud does. Also, has anybody on the Twins hit a nicer looking homerun this year than the one Torri parked out on Landsdowne street in the 8th inning last night?! My gahd!! What a bomb!! One more thing, did anybody else here Bert say in like the 7th inning that the game was so close that it felt like one that the Twins would come back and win? What a call!! Right now nobody knows our young guns ie... Garza, Bonser, Baker & Neshek and that MIGHT bode well for us, who knows.... I'd still love to have Liriano and Radke.

How about that one last night Buzz!

As bad as Torii was earlier, he has been great since he came back.

That's 3 clutch homers in less than a week!! Nice to see. Bonser was also terrific along with the bullpen. The Sox are doing their slide big-time. I would have thought they could have at least won a home series against a team they've owned all year long and with their most consitent pitcher on the mound. - guess not grin.gif

Ha Ha you guys funny tongue.gif. Silence yesterday, but now that I gotta eat crow crow pie I can't shut you all up. Ya know, crow doesn't taste bad with a little BBQ sauce. Really, it's only a matter of time before the Twins take the lead and stay there. I'm quite confident of this, and say it at the risk of wiping more future crow off my face...

While RJ notes that MN is hot (W4), nobody even mentions the race for 5th in the NL Central....Pitt has W5 now. Cubs don't have a chance to evade the cellar if they keep winning.

I am not going to count out the White Sox quite yet. I remember what happened all too well at the end of last year with Indians falling on its face and Chicago winning the division. Highly unlikely, yes, impossible, no.

I wouldn't count them out yet either, heck they only lost to a poor Seattle team 9-0 last night! Can't wait to see them bring that "A" game out tonight. tongue.gif

I am officially counting them out. They aren't going anywhere. The slide is in full force and there is no way they get out of it. They have given up.

Only thing we have to worry about now is if we play at home for our first playoff game or on the road.

Magic number for the Twins in the Wild Card is at 5 now. There would have to be a MAJOR Twins collapse and a MAJOR win streak by the Sox for them to get into the playoffs. Don't see either happening right now. I just checked and the Twins are +6 in the loss column on the White Sox. If I figure it out the Twins have to go 4-6 and the Sox would have to win out.

Besides we need to be focussing on the Tigers not the Sox.

Agreed. The wild card would be ok, but the division is what we want. Therefore, we want Detroit and not the Sux.

How cool would home field advantage be!??!?!?

What do you guys think about the possibility that the last game of the season might mean the division? We would have Santana going. Would you want him to pitch and win the division, or rest and start game one of a playoff series?

Hopefully it doesn't come to that, but I rest him so that he can be used twice in a playoff series if he is needed. Also, if he were to loose, I don't really want anybody else on the hill game one in Yankee stadium other than Yo.

      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!
    • proguide
      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.
