1st thing I said after watching the replay... Hunter would've had it.

No doubt about it. I miss some of his defense but the list ends there.

There is NO WAY Torii Hunter even gets to that ball. Gomez was on a full sprint just to get there. Hunter is not that fast.

Not to try to stir the pot here but in comparing career stats, cuddy strikes out more frequently than young and when playing their natural position of right field, they have pretty similar defensive stats, albeit young only had one full season in rf.

I'll admit to not being a big cuddy fan and what I don't understand is that so many say that he's such a stud outfielder and young is so bad but it's young that's playing out of his natural position. If cuddy is such a stud fielder, wouldn't it seem that he would be the one that should play lf and would supposedly do better defensively?

Will young be the dh tonight against a lefty? Wouldn't think Kubel would dh against lefty.

Anyhow, no reason to get too shook up over one game. Go get em tonight.

Moving toward a different part of the game, I saw Ken Griffey Jr hit the longest home run I have ever seen in the Metrodome back in about 1989 or 1990. He got it up in right field and it landed about 6 or 8 rows up in the second deck. I was in awe. Last night's homer made me think of that again.

It seems like he is one person who will miss the Dome because he seems to have a good HR record there.

Hey greebs,

Cuddy does strike out more frequently than Young but not by much. It is like comparing a 400lb guy and the 375lb guy and trying to decide who is fatter. They both strike out too much. Over the course of 500 AB's Delmon would have 95 K's and Cuddy would have 105. The point was that if anyone is going to use strikeouts or defense as the reason to bench Cuddy the solution should not be Young as you are only inserting a guy with the same issues and a lower career OBP and SLG %.

Sled Neck I cannot believe you just said that. I totally agree there is so much untapped talent there with Go Go.

Gomez has the talent to be a gold glove outfielder in the future

Wow, I just read about it. I turned on online realtime scoring and then shut it off when it mistakenly said the game was over. It was assuming Morrow got the save or something. Now I wish I would have turned the TV on.

Flipped over to check out the end of your game after my Redbirds took care of business and what an exciting finish you guys had against the Mariners.

On another note...

Dennys Reyes looked great in his first appearance out of the St. Louis bullpen.

Congrats to Kyle Lohse on his first 09 victory...

I did the same thing with gameday on the net, only to see final score pop up faster than what gameday would give

these games mean the same as those in sept.

the twins flat out stole one.

I hear ya. There ain't much difference between the two and I wanted to point that out to those thinking that young basically stinks and that cuddy is by far the superior player.

Went to the game last night. Not as many people as I thought there would be for it being the second night.

In Gardy's words most of the game was pretty "blah, blah" but it was great to see them scrap some runs in and win it in the 9th. I think they have the drive this year.

It was great to see Gomez take that walk too, I didnt think he could ever learn to look at a 3-2 pitch.

It was a nice win by the Twins, but I couldn't understand why the Seattle coach left that pitcher in the game after the first couple walks. I see it more as Seattle lost the game.

Yeah I went to bed around the end of the eighth inning, wasn't too impressed with much of anything except Span, he has had a couple good games now, Justin needs to wake the bats up, maybe he should call on joeboo or something.

He probably should have won a Gold Glove last year. He was better in the field than all 3 of last year's OF winners (Torii Hunter, Grady Sizemore and Ichiro).

Span usually has good at bats, but stats lie sometimes. Span gets a couple hits off of dome choppers and Morneau rips the ball right at people and goes 0 for or gets hosed on a call at first base. Morneau is fine, just needs to find the holes.

I was so disgusted after falling behind 4-0 in the 4th that I changed the channel. I shouldn't have given up so easily. As sleepy as our bats have been, this come from behind win should give a little confidence.

Shame Shame on those who gave up early last nite. What a finish. I will say this if those 2 pitchers at the end were the stoppers for Seattle, they are in trouble.

Trivia question for you all. Something happened last nite that has not happened since 1968 or 40 years ago. What was it.

i'll say consecutive pinch hitters both get walked and both score for the tieing run and winning run.

Actually he did, at least reference it, when they brought it the leftovers from the previous nites birthday cake / cupcakes. The day Bert doesn't mention his birthday, I'm the FLW angler of the year. laugh

But, I haven't got the answer to the previous question. Waiting patiently.......

OK here we go. I will say first of all that they keep way to many stats IMO. "THE LAST TIME THIS HAPPENED WAS IN 1968. THE LAST TIME THE TWINS WERE DOWN BY 2 RUNS OR MORE AND 2 OUTS AND NO ONE ON IN THE NINTH INNING AND CAME BACK TO WIN THE GAME."

That was a long time ago.

      I do mark my hole with a stick like spears do.

      Variable conditions seems to be the trend this season. This past weekend we had yet another snow storm which dumped approximately 10-12 inches in the Remer, Longville, Outing, and Walker area. Travel has been best still with sleds or track machines. Colder temps the past few weeks have firmed things up on some bodies of water which were once heavy laden with slush, however there are still several lakes that unfortunately we would not advise to travel on until things improve, and with the "January thaw" approaching that might be a while. If you are planning on traveling to the area, call the area resorts or bait shops to get current conditions prior. This past weekend was the Winter Inland Trout Opener. Stories of success were across the board. As some people had great success, others struggled. We ourselves definitely had noticed more lookers than takers on the Vexilar, but managed to get a few topside. Fighting the cold front that hit mid Saturday morning, being on the right body of water, and having the right presentation all factored in. Lake Trout: Lakers are hitting tipped tubes and spoons in 35'-70' of water. Look to the inside turns, points, and shelves. And the best advice I can give any fisherman targeting trout is STAY MOBILE. Keep moving until you get one on the graph, never spending more than 5-10 minutes in an inactive hole. And not only should you stay on the move, but keep that lure moving consistently, working the entire water column. Stream Trout: Try searching around 4'-9' of water on the stocked trout lakes. Small spoons like the Clam Speed Spoon tipped with a Maki Plastic or waxie have produced the best. Panfish: Hit the shallow weedlines for those big Gills, and drill out over the deep basins in 22'-35' feet of water to catch the Crappies. Tungsten jigs tipped with waxies have worked well. Again, the key to success is staying mobile. Walleye: Still can be found on the shoreline points anywhere from 11'-26' feet of water and on the sunken humps. Jigging using spoons tipped with a minnow head have been best when they have been aggressive. If your noticing them coming in yet seemingly shy of the jig, slow down your movement, and try a simpler presentation. Toss down a set-line with a plain hook tipped with a medium Shiner or small Sucker Minnow. Alice Wiese Wheezy Outdoors 218-275-7525 [email protected]

      Good tip on the sight fishing trout option Nick 👍
    • IceHawk
      I fish walleyes a bunch that's why I opted for the 8 inch K drill. But like we all know its not a true 8 😉 I know a lot of guys have 6 inch bits but most of them really only fish panfish from what I've seen.  Yes you can slip a decent eye through a 6 inch hole and many do with there accidental catches of them . But you start getting fish in the 24 plus range fairly often and the larger hole is definitely nicer to turn the head to get her to come up the hole. Its all a preference thing but personally if I'm targeting eyes I will go no less than 8 . And if you start chaseing greenbacks in Winninpeg  a 10 is even a better choice for there. Yes you can cut multiple  holes side by side with a 6 and this is another option if you rarely fish walleyes  with consistency.

      I'm not sure how the ice road is but I had -18 at my place near Ely last night. Tonight it should be right around 0 with a high tomorrow at 20. Hopefully that will help you out.     
    • Wanderer
      I won’t hold you to that! 😂  Thanks for the “offer”.   The hunt is fun too, I really don’t mind but a guy only has so much time.
    • monstermoose78
      I have not had an issue, but look at the 7 inch lazer hand auger. For trout I cut 4 -6inch holes so I can sight fish. I should add I use a 6 inch bit. 
    • Wanderer
      I’ve been able to get mid 20 inch pike up a 6 inch hole a few times but the 8 will help you turn the head easier, especially when the line is wrapped around the back side of the mandible.   Honestly my plan is to continue running the 6 inch but when I think I’m going to pike or walleye fish, the 8 will be with too.  I’ll used that after I dial in with the 6.   I’ll that I’ve over lapped 6’s in a pinch to get a bigger hole too.  I just wouldn’t do it for more than 1 tip up if I had an 8 handy.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      For those who run the drill rigs ( like myself) do you feel the 6” bit is big enough for walleye and pike fishing as well? Saves a lot of wear and battery life with the 6” than throwing the 8” on. What I’ve heard is most cases the 6” will be fine unless you hook into a lifetime fish.
