Why didn't the Twins look into picking this guy up? The A's just signed him for next to nothing...

I'm glad to say he's out of the AL Central... But if he came that cheap, and the Twins are looking for another bat, why didn't they pick him up at that price?

IDK he's getting older and has had many injury problems. I see him really only being valuable at the DH spot seeing we have his defensive position covered. Theres one thing I know about him he's a certified Twins Killer.

I think we should have signed him. I don't think the Twins are going to make the playoffs so they could deal him at the deadline for a prospect if he was healthy. That is a big if though. I swear everytime he played against the Twins he would go 2-4 with a HR and a couple RBI's and Scott Baker would have a no hitter.

Its 3 months ago all over again. I should be the GM, I said this awhile ago, I would rather take a flyer on him than Piazza

The Twins will be bring too many pitchers and spare not firstbasemen when they head north so there's no room for Sweeney, or it seems, Clark, who could probably help this team.

I think it was out of spite for him Pinch Hitting to break up Baker's NO-NO!!!....actually, the Twins never sign veterans or spend $$$ on DH's. We might as well just get used to it.

I was actually at that game.. It was very exciting! Then I saw Sweeney come up on deck, and I just thought "SHOOT!".

To be honest I thought it was a little crappy on their part to even pitch hit in that situation. It is kinda one of those "unwritten" baseball rules when a guy has a no-no going...

I hear you, and I can see that.

But then again, you have to think about what it's like to be on the other side. How would you like to be no-hit by a young pitcher?

I guess I really don't know what to think. It could go either way.

If I'm the Royals in that situation I don't want to get no hit. I pull out all the stops.

We just spent 2 seasons overpaying Rondell White, both a part time DH and vet. I think you meant the Twins never sign DECENT DHs or vets.

This guy ALWAYS kills the Twins. I don't care who is pitching. He proves it yet again with a base-hit against Boof in 2nd to score a run.

WHY CAN'T THE TWINS GET THIS GUY OUT?!!

Giving up 2 runs isn't exactly a bad start in my book. He didn't look good, but he got the job done.

.330 + career average vs. MN tells us it's not just Bonser giving up hits to him. ;\)

I had to say it so he'd settle down and so Guerrier would give up a jack to sweeny

That probably made the difference too. Put the pressure on our offense to put up 3 instead of 2. Delmon wouldn't have had to swing for the fences.... Boy that AB was ugly wasn't it.

ugly game in general... not very good ABs across the board! why can't sweeney be traded to an NL team so he won't see the twins??

Can't blame it all on Bonser, He gets little to no run support lately.

THE TWINS GET ZERO RUN SUPPORT...turns out 2006 was a career year for guys like Mauer and Punto.

I am so sick of mauer watching his best pitch hit the catchers mit. And then later in the at bat hitting a picture perfect double play ball!

I thought this offense was going to score runs?

      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 !!
