If not tonight..Never

Still only the bottom of the 3rd, so I may be speaking to soon, but the Jays are up 3-0 on the Tigers. Yet another chance maybe to tie things up. Our opportunities are passing us by, as we still need to win out.

Last I saw, the Tigers were losing yesterday. Did they lose? If so, what a lost opportunity that was.

I agree though, whatever opportunities the Twins now have they MUST take advantage of if they are going to win the Central.

DTE,

Not that I'm going out on a limb here, but you are correct. If the Twins don't tie tonight, chances are very slim that they'll clinch the central. The door was open wide last night and couldn't capitalize.

But then again, this is major league baseball and weird things happen...

Does anyone care to guess on how Radke will do tonight? My guess is he will give up a couple runs early, then settle down...

Yeah, I saw most of the game. They really missed out on one last night. Nearly came back, but the bats spent too much time on their shoulders in that last inning except for Cuddy.

It's easy to put my finger on that one game and say "what if", but there are many other games throughout the season that I could say "what if" to also. Just hope the Twins are sitting atop the Central when the regular season ends.

Your right there have been many other games, but the easy part about last nights is Silva went back to the Silva before his 3 previous starts and giving up many runs early. Must be something about Redman facing the Twins. Didn't he win 1-0 not too long ago? Not many hits in that game if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, that game was only a couple of weeks ago. I think we had something like 3-5 hits the entire game and Redman pitched a complete game shutout. I remember being very disgusted after that game. That is a game that sticks out in my mind as a missed opportunity this season.

Yep, I believe it was 5 hits that game. I remember that I was a little fumigated with a post about that game because he was pitching so dang slow (like batting practice) and the Twins couldn't hit the ball! smirk.gif

Not to harp on Silva, well ok I am. But how about the game which Buerhle gave the Twins 7 runs in the first for a 7-3 lead after 1 inning. Silva on the mound that night and they lost 9-7. I believe he gave up 6 earned runs in less than 3 innings of work.

Bottom line, we need to win out. I thought I read that Silva may be pitching on Sunday. I hope the divison title doesn't come down to that.

If Silva is pitching on Sunday and there's half a chance for the title, he'd better have a rope around his waist so that Gardy can yank him out faster.

If he's going to choke, let's put the rope where it belongs...around his neck! smirk.gif (just kidding)

Don't crown the Yankees yet. Yankees are losing by several. Yankees play Toronto for three, starting Friday. Toronto's a good club. They can win. Yankees, like the Twins and Tigers, are concerned with getting ready for the playoffs as much as they are winning, from what I see.

Other side of the coin - I'd really rather play the Yankees in a five gamer than a seven. Especially if I had Santana going two of the five. Yankees could destroy a pitching staff in seven games.

1.. we cant play the tigers in the 1st round... 2.. i also would rather play the yankers in a 5 game series as opposed to a 7 game series... the only way i wouldnt mind a 7 game series is if we had home field thruought the playoffs..oakland dont scare me at all and tigers are slumping but yanks are prety hot now

      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.

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
