Minor Leaguers and Rondell White

Recommended Posts

Rondells hitting an awesome .150- can't we just get rid of him and call up a minor leaguer? You guys think Puntos bad- at least he's not making $3 mill a year and on the DL 3/4 of the season

Everytime they bring Rondell up, the Twins loose. In my opinion he can't hit the ball, he can't throw the ball or can he catch the ball. In addtion he takes at bats away for younger players who can. It would be different if he was blasting the ball and just had minor setbacks but the guy is trying to hold onto something he lost and the Twins are suffering because of it. How woud you feel if you put in all the time and came up thru the ranks and are knocking the crap out of the ball and the organization benches you for this load just so he can get an at bat and when he does he hits into a double play or strikes out. blush.gif Last year when they brought him up it seemed to me that the players that got them to the playoffs just quit, saying, I was here all year busting my a$$ and now you bring in this load to take my job. I know what I would have said fudda youse. shocked.gif

Hey, now that Jose Offerman is in the clink, there is an open spot for Rondell in the "has beens" league.

Do we have anyone who has been hitting the crap out of the ball that could take his place? If so I haven't seen them.

I don't like White in there he just doesn't have it anymore but honestly we are getting short of viable options out there. If Mauer was healthy Redmond would be the DH but now that he has to catch everyday who else is there really.

I'd guess with the September callups and the sweep by Cleveland that RW's at-bats will diminish. Time to bring up Span and see if he'll be a starter next year. Sosa isn't playing much in Texas.

Supposedly Span is not having a good year at all. He can't hit anything from what I hear.

Well he's still only hitting .265, which is a far cry from pounding the ball.

Also I don't think they will bring up a potential center fielder of the future if they plan on trying to sign Hunter. If they bring Span up it would go along way in telling Hunter that he isn't needed around here.

They did approach him with an offer but Hunter didn't want to look at it right now. From what I have heard is the $$$ per year is in the right ball park but he is looking for a little longer deal.

I have heard many rumors also and contradicting rumors as well.

Hunter has said he would turn down a bigger cash offer from another team as long as the Twins lock him into a real long term deal, one that would allow him to retire here. Noone wants to play in this new stadium more than him. As far as offering him a contract- I though Ryans always stated the Twins never do that during the course of a season

I am getting sick and tired of T Ryans little mottos and ways... he is pi@@ing a good team away right before our eyes. Once all we are left with is two overpaid stars and 7 hacks I hope he looks back at what was...

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.
    • Rick
      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
