Piazza a Twin?

Recommended Posts

Y a h oo is reporting Twins are scouting Mike Piazza- 10 years too late, but still might hit out 20 a year- better than Ford or Kubel

Would be surprised if the Twins would pay better then 8 mil a year for a DH who can't thro ( bad Shoulder)for that kind of money they could go find a healthy, power hitting 3rd basemen.

Piazza is hurt right now. If we did pick him up I am sure Oakland would eat some of his salary. Piazza would start in the 7th hole behind Hunter and hopefully move up to the 4 hole and bump Cuddyer. I don't know why but I am not a Cuddyer fan. Especially in the 4 hole. He is not a 4 hitter. Castillo, Bartlett, Mauer, Piazza, Morneau, Hunter, Cuddyer, Kubel, and I suppose Punto. We will see what happens.

So you want to put Piazza in the outfield?

Piazza is hitting .282 with 1 HR and 8 RBI this year..........not my idea of a #4 hitter! He couldn't replace Punto at #9! I'll take Garrett Jones for a DH and a fill-in 1b-of spot. Give the kid a chance to make it, and don't get a washed-up, old has-been, who can't play defense, just because of the press he has gotten.

I never understood this thing about each position HAS to have THIS type of player(like 3b needs to hit for power, drive in runs,etc.). confused.gif I think it is a TEAM game and you need to look at the overall picture. One player picks up anothers weaknesses, and the whole team benefits. I will take Punto at 3b defensively over 90% of the 3ber's out there. He is a great utility player, and as such is mvp for the team. I've noticed they keep trying others at 3b, but they have been a liability defensively, with little improvement offensively.....so until they find someone better than Punto, he's their BEST option. If he could just lay off the high- hard one, he'd be hitting 50 pts better. Maybe he needs to crouch more at the plate....make them bring it down a little. The teams have him swinging at "their" pitches.......good scouting on their part.

I happen to like Cuddy in the 4 hole better than any other options I've seen. The L-R-L-R middle of the lineup is great, don't mess with the successes. laugh.gif

Punto MVP???? confused.gifconfused.gifconfused.gif

I will admit he plays hard and hustles but not an mvp

PUNTO MVP? Did you mean MVP as in MOST VULNERABLE PIRHANA to be benched.

As a utility infielder.... MVP.....big difference.

Piazza... no thanks!

True Piazza is no where near the player he once was but he is still somewhat of a threat. This is his first year in the AL as a DH. I would bet in a full year Piazza could hit 25-30 HR's as a full time DH. Did Piazza sign a 1 yr deal in Oakland? If the Twins don't trade for him now they could sign him next year to a 1 yr incentive laiden deal. But when is the last time the Twins signed a name player?

Could he stay healthy as a DH? That's the real question. That article also said the Yankees were shopping him, so I am not counting on anything yet

I'm not big on Piazza, but I would take him over any DH we have right now.

I'll take Dimitri Young. He is having a great year and would fit in perfectly. Switch hitting DH that could also play 1B when Morneau needs a day off or wants to DH.

Punto MVP? I don't think so. He would be a great guy to have on the bench and play 2-3 games a week giving guys a day off, but as an everyday player, he is lacking.

Let's refer to the Phil Neven experiment, which looked good on paper, but never developed into much.

I would take either Piazza or Jones as our DH. Pretty bad when you put Tyner as your DH and he has never hit a HR. Anybody would be better than what we have.

Why is Gardy so reluctant on letting Luis Rodriguez DH or even play for that matter- he has a little pop in his bat, better than Tyner at the plate.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
