Chances that Morneau signs big???

11 posts in this topic

So I am going to Fort Myers this weekend to catch a game, and want to buy a jersey. I promised my wife a Mauersi, and want a Morneauzi for meself. But, would like to see him ink a four year deal himself before I invest the cash. Whatcha think? grin.gif

Just purchase a Twins Jersey without a players name and number. Then when you decide what you want on the back take it to Steichen's Sporting Goods in St. Paul and have the lady there do the embrodery on your Jersey. She does the embrodery for all of the Twins jersey's so your jersey will be stiched exactly the same. I had her do my Twins Away jersey with Kirby's name and number and it was perfect.

Of course Justin is pushing for a long term huge contact, he would be fool not to coming off the MVP. The Twins would be smart to wait and see how the season goes. But if he repeats lasts years performance they need to be ready to shell out huge $$$...I hope it works out and he performs and we ink him.

What is the cost to have this done?

I got fed up with buying the jerseys and then having the players leave the team for one reason or another. So now, I either get one with my name and number on it or go old school like a Hrbek, Puck, Killebrew, etc...

This is especially the case with the Vikes - dang I got like 10 Vikes Jerseys and I would own them for like 1 or 2 years and that player would no longer be on the team.

Thats the main reason I want Hunter to resign, his is the only Twins jersey I have and they are expensive.

I hear ya there. I bought a Robert Griffith Vikings jersey. One year later he's gone. I bought a Jacque Jones Twins jersey. One year later he's gone.

Maybe I should buy a Carlos Silva and Rondell White jersey. grin.gif

Well it depends on exactly you want done (back number, front number, name, name plate) but it's not cheap. I don't remember offhand how much it cost so get a quote but IIRC it was around $75 and took 3-4 weeks. It was perfect though.

I'm sure that's why both parties agreed to a one year deal. The Twins want to see Morneau do it again and Morneau is betting that he can.

Well I am betting that he can, too. After looking at the jersey in the mall before my trip, I decided "a what the heck". So now I have my Morneau jersey. And wouldn't you know it, sitting at Hammonds stadium on Sunday, enjoying the most beautiful day, Morneau hits about a 380' dong. grin.gifshocked.gifgrin.gif I am going to have to wear that for every game.

P.S. When the Twins get an outdoor stadium, I am soooo in for 20 games/year. That was a LOT better than the inflatable toilet wink.gif

Morneau turned down a 4 year $30-33 million , with 5th year option. What do you think? Should we have offered more? Or do you think he should have taken it?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.

      The four I use are pretty shallow for at least the first hundred yards, but I've never damaged my boat or prop. Just gotta take it slow and trim the motor up.    I use Isle, Cove, Garrison, and the one near the casino, Shaboshkung or whatever.

      great fish!

      Greetings fishermen and women! Its great being back in the swing of things and better yet in the boat! Both the MN and Ontario season is now open and fishing has been great! Staffers here at Flag Island Resort have been busy getting ready for the upcoming summer months with some deep cleaning, window washing, grounds work and remodeling!   On the Minnesota side anglers have been catching nice saugers, walleyes and perch. Soon the crappies should be finding their way into the shallows around Angle Inlet and other small creeks and the walleyes have spawned out over the past couple of weeks. With the warmer temps that started out last week anglers were finding fish in shallower water between 5-17 feet now, with the cooler temps, rain and winds most of the fish have been pushed deeper into the 16-26 foot range. Points and reefs close to large land masses adjacent to sand and rubble have been hot locations. Anglers have found fish near Soldier’s, Little Oak, Oak Island and NW Point. The water surface temp has been in that 50-55 degree range. Right now it seems like everything is working from ¼ to 3/8 jigs to slow trolling with raps in the shallows as well as trolling spinners keeping on the move at 0.9 mph.   Over in Ontario, the walleye, sauger, crappie, perch and pike have been hungry. Perch and crappie should be spawning soon. Crappies are being caught around the 20 foot mark . Sandy bays and points have been best for the walleye and crappie bite while the perch are still caught in the rocks. Many pike have been caught in areas with current. There have been reports of a lot of smallmouth mixed in with the walleyes.  Jigging with a ¼-3/8 ounce jig has been the ticket and the water temp has been around 49-52 degrees.   We hope to see you up here soon! Until next week, good luck fishing! Guides Dan Schmidt, Jeremy Glessing and Cale Albers Flag Island Resort 218-223-8011
