Is Kubel any better? Isn't that the real question here

Kubel is the worst position player on the twins roster. He looks clueless in the outfield. Runs to first base like bengie molina with a broken ankle. I'll take Lew Ford anyday over Kubel.

Yeah Kubels impressed me once- with that HR over the baggy last year. He squints and swings the bat like he's blind

All three are overrated...we must have the weakest left field in baseball...(off the top of my head), White included in that group.

my least liked player on the twins roster is anyone that stands at the plate with 2 strikes with guys on base and watches the meatball come across the plate for strike 3 SWING THE BAT OR STAY ON THE BENCH.

Kubel is the only player Ive seen strike out multiple times on 3 straight check swings.

I heard that Lew plays D&D online and hangs out with the people that he meets during said games. Maybe he should be more focused on baseball instead of his dwarf killing an ogre grin.gif

In the clubhouse they call him "weird-Lew" just for that reason.

Of the curerent LF that Mn has on the roster I would rather have Lew then anyone else. Has good speed on the base paths has some pop in his bat and when given a chance to play has in the past put up good numbers. Who cares if he plays games on his off time, looks like you are really searching to find something wrong with him. So far all I have seen on this thread is what Twins player do we pick on this week.. I sure don't hear any comments on the numbers that Hunter is putting on the board. For the past 4 weeks he has pretty much carried this team along with Morneau who is swinging a heavy bat. Boof and Baker are pitching good enough to win and it looks like the Twins have stop sliding downward and are heading back up in the standings. Lot of pitchers on the Dl and this will be an interesting part of the season to get through.

G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG OBP SLG OPS

Tyner Career 355 1135 137 307 32 9 0 82 54 119 56 13 .270 .307 .315 .622

Ford Career 449 1429 217 392 76 10 29 161 138 217 44 9 .274 .350 .402 .752

Ford has twice the doubles 29-0 in hrs twice the rbi and big margin in slugging and on base, yes he Ford has played almost a 100 more games and has 300 more at bats. I like Tyner also but Ford is more of an every day player between the two of them. A healthy White is who should be out there.

lew only had 4 hr's last year, and if tyner was in left we wouldnt be looking for power, just as i wouldnt be from lew. i think tyner is better on the bases and in field. 5 hr's a year for ford vs. 0 for tyner is pretty much a moot point. i dont think anyone in mn expects power from anyone but morneau, cuddy and t-hunt. thats why we play small ball.

Why is everyone ragging on Lew? We should be ragging on Nick Punto who will probably be batting .150 before the twins permanently replace him.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
