Twins-Tigers Post Season Awards

8 posts in this topic

This could really be a big time sweep by the Twins and Tigers with post season awards if thing fall the way they should.

AL MVP- Morneau

AL CY YOUNG- Santana

AL ROY- Verlander

AL Manager of the Year - Either Leyland or Gardenhire

Just checked this morning and Santana is leading the league, not just the AL, for the Pitcher's Triple Crown. Does anyone know has this been done by a pitcher before?

AL MVP - Jeter, Definately worthy of the award has been really good for a long time. MVP you usually have to have a number of good seasons before you win this award.

CY - No brainer

ROY - Verlander

Manger of Year - Flip a coin between Gardy on Leyland. Could go either way no matter who wins division. I'd probably give it to Leyland.

I agree with the guys mentioned, however would add that if Liriano stayed healthy would have been the ROY lock!! Especially with the batting practice Verlander has been tossing lately.

Good read Buzz. Did you happen to see the Quote of the Night on the right hand column?

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT

"It's kind of exciting. We're actually rooting for the Chicago White Sox. Can you believe that?"

-- Twins center fielder Torii Hunter, after his team pulled within a half-game of the Tigers, who lost to the White Sox on Tuesday.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      oops - duplicate post.

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).

      Also noticed or heard you say your using 4 lb. test line. Is that correct?? We used 10-12 mono and 15  flouro.  We sure love this lake. Can't sleep for next three weeks waiting to head up there LOL

      ago ·  Hey guys, I'm new to this site. Trying to learn more about this lake. My brother and I fished there last July 9-16-2016. We did good on all species, especially like and walleye. We had several rallies on smallmouth, but never put a solid pattern together. My brother had a 4 and 5 lber. On perch shad rap. I caught many 1-1/2 - 3 lbers on uvibe speed craws. Suspending jerkbaits caught all species well. I've been checking this site and Mr. Johnwis has some great info and video. If any of you out ther could help us get on them big smallies, we would greatly appreciate it. We're from southwest Louisiana and we'll be staying at island view lodge July 22-29 . Thanks and this is a great site

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.
