Twins Talk!!!!!!

108 posts in this topic

Well, as we all know, the twins started the season off with a bang last night, when they hit the ball well, and santa was on his A game.

Just thought i would start a thread to talk about the twins all season long.

Keep it rolling!!!!!!

He has to set the ton for his year tonight. They need him huge this year again. Hopefully, he will be great for the team.

I was impressed for Boofs first game out. He was around the zone all night. THe biggest key for the twins, is to have there starts get to the 6th or 7th innings. If they can do that, with the lead, there going to be a tuff team to beat all year long.

Bit-player Tyner has played a big part in both wins.

Funny part about that is, they need to teach him how to slide head first into second base. That was funny as heck watching that last night.

Santana was not on his A game as earlier eluded and Boof only threw 59 of 100 pitches for strikes, yet they still won. This I think is good news that our beloved twins can still win even if the pitching is not always there. Last nite was another good example of the pirranhas at work.

That was funny stuff, he was literally crawling to the bag. I can't believe he made it safe. He said he stumbled, but it looked like he launched his slide a little early. I was there, so I saw no replays.

His body was moving faster then his legs were. Yes, it was a funny deal.

Another great performance from the Twins last night. Punto was amazing again at third. Great starting performance last night. They hit the ball around the park again last night. Biggest thing that i have seen from then, is that they are going with the pitchs, and staying inside the ball.

Im excited for the season.

Isnt that a fact. Man, he had a ruff outting. The yankes did hit the ball around the park, but he just looked like he was out of sink, and didnt have it all there last night.

Hopefully he will be able to come back with a good outting next time, so he can get his head back on his shoulders.

Well chalk it up to first start with new team jitters...God I hope that's what it was. Who goes tonight, Bonser probably. Yankees lineup is tight.

He did have a fairly rough outing early. The Yankees did hit the ball around very well though. He looked rough in the first two innings and then settled down and looked fairly well until his pitch count hit 90, then he went down quickly. Oh well, I think he should work well. Can't the UofM just clone Cy-tanna laugh.gif

Boof and Ortiz are going to have solid outtings against the yanks. If they can do that, we will know that we have a staff that can handel the big wings. I think if they do this, we are going to have a solid pitching staff of 4, where ponson, can get the innings to help the bullpen.

IMO i think that Garza well be here pretty quick if Ponson is like this for very long. Garza's ERA was 1.50 in spring training.

I saw nothing positive in that tub of goo that pitched last night. I have a feeling roster moves will be sooner than later.

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
