Hypothetically speaking

5 posts in this topic

Would you rather see the Twins settle for the Wild Card, face the Yankees in a five game series, or take on the A's and beat them and then have to face the Yankees in a seven game series? Personally I hope we tie for the division title and then take on the Yanks in a five game series. I like our chances over five games versus seven games. This is all hypothetical mind you. wink.gif

Catching the Yanks in a short series...with Santana throwing twice...would not be a bad 'consolation' prize for the wild card.

On the other hand, if you pass the Tigers for the division title, you have a shot at catching the Yanks and getting home field through the playoffs...

I know that the Tigers have the tiebreaker on the Twins for the division title, but what about the tiebreakers with the Yanks for home field?

twins need to have better records than both the kittens and the yankers to have home-field thruout becuz we lost the season series to Detriot 11-8 and the yanks have a better division record than we do

I say just keep winning.

Who cares who it is you play cuz you have to beat the best to get the biggest cookie.

Win, win, win.

Yankees have the tie breaker over my Tigers, too. We don't have one dominant pitcher like Santana. I fear the Yankees in five or seven. Like every game we have played this year, if we pitch real good and get some timely hitting, we might be able to beat 'em. (That sounds like our skipper, Jim Leyland)

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
