Silva is Starting??!!#$@&%**@#

9 posts in this topic

I just heard on Sids show that Silva is starting today. Are you kidding? We want this stiff on the mound in the most important game of the season, with home field advantage for the playoffs in the mix if we win and Tigers lose? ARGHH! I can't believe it. Please don't do it, Gardy! He is the last guy on the pitching staff who should be out there, period. He is horse*%$#@!

Ditto.Gardy wants to rest Santana to start the first game of the play-offs.If we lost the division,we play NY it looks like.We will only have to win a 5 game series verses a 7 game series later.I would think the 5 game series would benifit Mn.

Yep- I was wrong and man enough to admit it. I still don't think he deserves a spot in the postseason pitching staff. You never know which pitcher is going to show up, and especially in the playoffs, you need to put a starter out there who is in control of his game. More than half the time, Silva is not. I would rather have Perkins or Baker take the mound over Silva. 2 good starts, three bad ones, one good one, 4 bad ones- whatever it is, not consistent enough to take the mound as a starter in the postseason, bottom line IMO.

One thing to remember about sinker ball pitchers, is they say the less rest they get between games makes them more effective, cause the arm is a little tired therefore more of a drop. Wouldn't be surprised if he came back on short rest to start the third game. crazy.gif Yikes.

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.
