Nathan is the LEAST of this teams multitude of problems in the pitching dept. Rincon needs to go. If Neshek doesn't wake up pretty quick-he should be shown the door too. The mystique w/ his delivery is gone. Other teams have obviously figured out his mechanics and keyed in on (and teed off) on multiple times in the last 2-3 months. I used to be excited when he came in. Now, I groan. (Just like when I see Rincon trot in). Santana is not the pitcher he has been in the past. IMO he is not worth 20 million a year. Of course, I don't think anyone should be payed that kind of $ to start with, for that matter. They still don't have a LF or 3rd baseman. Lot of holes to plug. Are we gonna continue to bring up AAA guys and pray they can float? Are you listening Ryan?

I fully agree. Nathan is toast, you guys should ship him here to the Windy City, we would take him off your hands and send you a primo shortstop, Juan Uribe, straight up! We might even throw in a few deep dish pizza's. Do you want sausage or pepperoni?

PS Don't let the Cubbie logo fool you, it is the last day you will see it as I am paying off a bet to my Cubbie Loving buddy Geno.

K-dawg, who do you think should close then? Nathan is one of the best in the league still. If you don't want others to post their opinion, then don't post yours either. I am a twins fan thru and thru, and not one of the bandwagon fans. Yes this year is disapointing, but it is still just a game. Enjoy watching them, because their season is almost over. But really with the stats that NAthan has to start bashing him for his third or fourth blown save of the year is ridiculous. How many other teams in baseball would take him in a heatbeat. cool.gif

K Dawg, sorry, but in the real world no one is perfect. Nathan's one of the top closers in the majors. You don't like him, great, I think there's a lot of other folks on the field, dugout, & front office that need to get in the blame line waaaaaaaaaaaay before Nathan.

Bull head, keep your (Contact Us Please) opinions to your self if you have nothing positive to say. I don't like Nathan and that's all there is to it.


It's one thing not like someone but its totally CRAZY for a person not to realize that Nathan is one of the best closers in Baseball Period.

He should have been put in at the BEGINNING of the 9th. PERIOD. We would have never seen a 10th inning. That DePaula guy stinks.

And guess who gave up the game losing run in the 13th? The one and only Rincon. Big surprise.

How about. Nathan, Liriano and Bonser for AJ. Might as well throw Mauer in the deal too. Since we won't need a catcher anymore. Of course AJ comes with a couple of them deep dish pies.

I wouldn't rule out another season for the chief. Most of the year, he's been our 2nd best starter. Nathan, one of the better in the league.

For every 1 good start Chief has, he has 5 that are horrible. No way he'll be back next year

Team's record for each starting pitcher:

Santana 17-13

Silva 13-16

Bonser 12-16

Baker 12-8

Garza 5-7

Slowey 5-4

Ponson 2-5

Ortiz (as a starter) 4-6

While no one has been amazing for us (Santana has been good, but not Santana good), I wouldn't miss Silva very much.

I think the Twins would miss Silva more than you think. Every team needs that 'horse' in the middle of the rotation who can eat innings. Silva this year has 180.1 innings with a 4.32 ERA. He has a 2.3:1 Strikeout to walk ratio. He is an effective middle of the rotation guy. That is a lot of innings to replace if he is gone.

He is probably not a number two guy...but like I said, you need those innings eaters in the middle of the rotation. He would be hard to replace. He's certainly more effective than Bonser or Garza.

If Liriano can come back healthy, next year you have Santana, Liriano, Silva, Baker, then it is between Garza, Bonser, and Slowey for the fifth spot. That is IF Liriano is healthy, and IF he can be even close to as effective as he was last year.

I'm not saying I want him back, but with the history of Ryan, he seems to carry one every year. Good points Jarrod, also in 6 of silva's starts, the twins have been shut out.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
