Trade idea?

How about trading Santana for Brad Hawpe and Garrett Atkins. Maybe we could get a couple of minors as well.

Some people might see this trade as bad for the Rockies but they have NO PROBLEM filling in position players -- even some like Hawpe and Atkins.

Others say we can't trade Santana -- we HAVE to. We can't keep everyone so he is the most likely player on the team to be moved. Like the Viola deal I guess.

Just wondering what you guys think of that.

Thanks

I think to move Santana we have to get a starting pitcher or starting pitcher prospects in return.

Trade Santana for a starting RF and CF. I heard the other weekend they are moving Cuddy to 3b next year.

I see the brewers released Corey Koske,or are going to be. If he was healthy, and willing to take a pay cut, I would take him back on 3rd, before putting Cuddy there. With Cuddies arm, we need him in the out field!

I agree -- Cuddy needs to stay in right field. As far as a deal -- this organization needs hitting prospects a lot more than pitching

I wouldn't mind the first rumor...David Wright and a couple of prospects from the Met's.

I sure hope not. Last time they tried that, it didn't work out at all. He needs to stay in RF with his cannon.

I don't think there is any chance the Mets would trade Wright.

That would be nice ...

The Rockies deal might be better in the long run.

IMO, it would be stupid to trade away their best pitcher/ one of the league's best pitchers. I think there has to be better ways to improve. Whether it be a different trade or the twins always productive farm system. I didn't watch as much this year as most years and don't know what they have coming up, but imo DON'T TRADE YOUR BEST PLAYER.

Ely --

I hear what you are saying, but Smilin' Carl will not open his wallet, and if you listen to Sid, we should all feel sorry for him.

There is NOTHING in the farm system that can hit a ball. Our only option is to trade him or let him go for nothing via free agency.

dahit,

Who is Sid?

Also me being out of state all summer I didn't get the normal twins exposure and info I'm used to. Thats too bad there is nothing in the farm system.

If they do trade him, I hope they get a good starting pitcher plus another quality player/ prospects.

Oh -- That is Sid Hartman -- the guy that thinks he knows everything at the Star/Tribune.

The farm system has a good amount of top pitching prospects but Zippo on the position players. That is why we need hitters for Santana and pitching prospects.

Quite the guy Sid is. A couple of weeks back he said that if Hunter signs with another team the Twins will: (A)Have a player on the current roster play CF, (B) make a trade that will bring a CF to the club, © Promote a player from the minor leagues, or (D) Sign a free agent to play CF. Are you sure about that Sid(Captain Obvious)? I thought I heard that the Twins were going to be selling raffle tickets to the general public and the winner would play in CF.

Santana isn't nearly as effective as he used to be and the numbers show that. I'd bet he'll go sometime next year before the July trading deadline. He'd become Bert Bonser in Colorado.

We've been so spoiled by having one of the best pitchers in baseball at the front of our rotation for the past few years that the guy slips from "best" to "one of the best" for a couple of months & people start calling him Bonser? Brilliant.

Although I'm sure that there are lots of GMs out there that will pause now that they "know" Santana isn't "nearly as effective as he used to be". Perhaps the Twins will be able to afford this less "effective" version of Santana after all, since he's now on Bonser's plane. smirk.gif Heck, pocket change should do it!

      they have been great!  Provide more stability and floatation to the rear of the boat where it was needed with my 230lb frame with the motor back there.  They also make the boat look pretty "mean" for a small little jon boat   The only downside to them is now I have to figure out a trolling motor since I cant put one off the rear, and I have to get creative to mount a transducer.  Currenly i just suction cup a vexilar transducer to the side of the boat. I am planning on adding a motorguide kayak 36" shaft trolling motor to the bow.  I just need some welding on the front, but I have to customize it so the boat still can fit on my trailer properly, as I have bumpers that create a little logistical snafu.

      Looks like you got it set up pretty nice with comfy seats. How did the rear floats you added work?

      Just thought I would provide an update....the river is high and fast.  I have been down there multiple times during the course of the year and the fishing has been poor with water moving so fast.  I have tried 3oz weights and they tumble like nothing down the river.  Have not attempted to launch the boat out there.  I have been on the Rum a bit with the boat and that is a fun navigational voyage!  Not a lot of fish caught but some.  Regarding my boat set up, I did upgrade the 4hp up to a 6hp.  has just enough power to go where I need with a passenger.  next step is to weld up something to mount a bow mount trolling motor and I will have a solid fishing machine for small lakes and rivers. Hope everyone is out there enjoying our summertime open water!!

      Someone is always catching them somewhere but so far this week that someone is not me. Still a few ideas to try but running out quickly

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      CFD200, Nice Fish!  are you on the east or west side of Vermilion?
    • monstermoose78
      Just have been busy and I will work ok a report tonight. 
    • CFD200
      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.
