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.

      any  reports from today? we pounded through the washing machine waves all day and got nothing! Lead core,jigging, spinners haha! Ended up getting all our keepers within a mile of home when it was all over! Who else was out there? Am I the only one that did poor today?

      Cool nights and only a few warming hours each day have water temps coming down into the 50s this week.  This is actually pretty normal for the last week of September so there is nothing to odd here. 
       
      The catfish have slowed down over the past few days with this cool off.  They are still around to catch.  They are hanging near structure, usually on the drop off to the channel right next to it.  They are also on the softer side of the current in holes.  It seems that longer sit times are in order this week to allow the fish to come out, find and decide to eat the bait.
       

      Sucker seems to be the bait of choice right now.  Frogs just have not been getting any attention.

      From the fall Pelican Lakes Association newsletter - DNR Fisheries Update:

      You may have heard about the 454 adult cormorantsthat were removed from Gooseberrry Island this May by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services Unit under a permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  DNR staff looked at the stomach contents of 30 birds. Eleven of those birds had stomach contents including: 38 perch (mostly 4- inchers), 7 spot-tail shiners, 7 bluegills, 6 crappies, 1 rock bass, 1 pike, and zero walleyes.

      Thanks for the Update.  Hopefully they shoot 400 more next spring! :):)

      They were really slow today. I fished hard all day and didn't manage much. Went over tons of fish and they weren't active at all. Should get better as the weekend gets closer...I hope

    • Hello Friends:

      Looking for some help as I've been up here since yesterday morning and only two 22" walleyes. I've fished fairly hard (5 or 6 hours) and tried all of my normal spots in Frazer/Smarts/Narrows area using all presentations with minnows and crawlers. Would love to have a walleye dinner (couple of 15's) for my black lab and I tomorrow night and any suggestions would be welcomed.

      I'm not looking for spots, but general depth and bait.

      Thanks guys

      Andy

      It is great.  I don't know if they are still doing grumpy gary chicken this time of year but it is good.  They have specials on various nights, at least in summer.

      Dennis Anderson, Outdoor writer for the Minneapolis Tribune had a nice write up on the duck opener at Pelican. In addition there were some locals quoted on duck hunting there. Sounds like the ducks are back, and they have the water levels well under control.
