Thank you Joe!

Torre that is for pitching to our Joe last nite. But didn't understand the 2 bunts in his prior AB's. A nice way to end a horribly played series by our club, base running, pitching, defense and hitting pretty much stunk the whole series. Hopefully Joe's hit will carry over for a sweep of the Ray's.

Both bunts were explained in a Star Trib article.

Apparently Joe wasn't seeing the ball well for some reason so when he was given the sign to get the runner over to second he bunted beucase he thought it was the best chance he had to getting the runner in position to score.

I like the fact that he was able to recognize that he hasn't been seeing the ball well and made a choice based on that to work around it by bunting. He said he also knew that Cuddy had been hitting better lately so he figured if I can just bunt the runner over Cuddy has a better chance at bringing him home.

Bunting is a neglected art. How often we have we seen the Twins fail in this fundamental part of the game? Sure, you expect the batting champ to feel like he can drive the guy home instead, but fact is even batting champs are out 6-7 times out of 10. With our knack for wasting RISP/0 out chances, I was happy to see Cuddy come up only "needing" a sac fly instead of 1 out runner still at second. Although a "productive out" on a ball pulled to the right side would have done the trick too, I say good for Joe.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
