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 live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
