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.

Lot of us in Hunter's corner on that one.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
