09 MN Twins

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to start a thread seperate from the CP thread, to leave that thread to the honor and rememberence of Carl Pohlad.

I know everyone hopes now that Carl is out of the picture that the Twins will open the check book more, but in all honesty he really want running the Twins for the last few years anyway!

Does anyone think it will get better? Or do you think it will get worse? Will Pohlads now sell the team? Whats your thoughts?

Sweet, I think this is the first time I have ever been first to respond.

I think more of the same, my mom and dad could pinch a penny, make a turnip bleed, and on and on, guess what I am the same way.

I hope I get suprised, but like you said, the kids were basically running the team already and there hasn't been much of a change.

I just checked MLB dot com to see if the twins have signed Manny or anything, nothing, the Bo-Sox are going crazy signing FA's and we are still doing nothing.

Watch out for Cleveland this year

I think it might get a little better. I think there is a fine line between throwing tons of money at players and doind it the "Twins way". I don't think we need to throw money at every high priced player out there, but picking up a good free agent, and signing some of our key players might be a little easier (hopefully).

I honestly think it was a good sign for the Twins, and I am glad they signed him for a few more years. He has played hurt for a few years and last year he showed us a look at what he really has. If we put a bat in his hands the whole year, I am sure he will lead the Twins in HR this year! I was going to post this when it was released yesterday, but I forgot.

What do you guys think of the Twins possibly picking up Joe Crede for 3rd?

I think they could get him on the cheap, its one of those high risk, high reward deals, but I would like to see him on third for the Twins. Sign him to a one year deal, if he doesnt work out we arent out much, but if it does he can add a powerfull bat on 3rd.

Not to sound like Sid, but I've been on record for Buscher, that said why not try and sign him. Geez, do something, Kubel does nothing for me, ya he has power, but overall not the guy you want to see up down by one, one out, runner on 1st.

now that football is for the most part done, can't wait for baseball. I'm really hopeful that they can pick up somebody else to play 3b but am doubtful that will be the case. Gardy has said that he's happy with the current roster so read that to mean that he's been told by the higher ups that new players aren't likely. I have to remind myself that the owners are running a business here and their goal is to make as much profit as possible. Winning a world series I'm sure would be nice for them but that could actually hurt their profits in the long run with higher salaries so it's probably smart on their behalf as businessmen to have a team that keeps the fans interested most of the season but doesn't necessarily have to win any playoff series.

I'm hopeful that the current roster can compete in the central and contend provided the indians don't play up to their full potential. Thankfully we aren't in the east where we'd be likely fighting toronto for 4th place or the west where we'd be 2nd best but likely 10 games out. If everybody stays healthy and performs up to or above what they are capable of, they've got a shot of getting a first round playoff series.

Over the w/e either on the radio home of the twins or the neighbor, they had Billy Smith and Gardy on, must have been the radio home, both said its Buscher and the other guy, Harris?, platooning at 3rd.

Idiots. I truly hope Bill Smith gets blasted to the extent that he should this year. The guy has done nothing to make us better. In fact, he has made us worse. They won last year in spite of him.

Gardy just has to be [PoorWordUsage] knowing that all it take is about 10 mill on a couple guys and he could be a WS contender. I would not keep on managing the Twins if I were him. He can get about any major league job he wanted.

Keep wasting your real players Twins FO. You wasted Torii and Johan, now you will waste Mauer and Morneau. I'm done spending any money on games, merchandice, etc if they don't sign or trade for a REAL 3rd baseman. Those 2 that platoon are bit players at best and we all know it.

I'll bet they buried Carl with half his fortune. That is the only way it makes sense that the Twins have not addressed the 2 most glaring needs we have(BP and 3rd). when we are WAY under budget this year and were last year. I'll bet the Twins had record profits last year with the sorry arsed payroll they had.

IDIOTS!!!

Nothing could put more money into the Polhad coffers then a world series appearance this year! Can you imagine how much the PSL would be? Not to mention how much more the tickets would go up going into the new stadium.

Speaking of which..........I know they are pushing '09 season tickets hard to get you lined up for season tickets in the new stadium. Has anybody seen a price schedule for the new stadium?

      Hello!)  I love playing minecraft.  From early childhood, I understood that this is just the best game, but the game became unrealistic after I installed the super mod https://99minecraft.com/mods/weee-flowers-mod-1-12-2-1-7-10/  !!!!! It will help everyone to make the game more interesting and cool.

      It seems that I have never had problems writing essays. And here it was necessary to write residency personal statement editing. I realized that it would not be possible to cope with such a document, I decided to take the help of professionals and all the problems disappeared.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.
