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.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.
