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.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
