I would have figured the Twins would have accomplished this since 1968.

I was at the game last night. Small crowd. Was amazed at how few actually left early for as bleek as it looked, especially after giving up aother run in the top of the ninth.

For those of you who stuck it out, good for you, you saw one of the better finishes you'll ever see.

For those who left early? Ha Ha, better you than me! grin

Cuddy will lead the leauge in K's and runners left on base the way he is going. He should have been rung up on the 2-2 pitch before his RBI hit. I'd rather see Kubel or Crede in the 3 hole till Mauer gets back.

So would I 4wandering, but that is what was said last nite in the post game and if you listen to the pre game or recapp of last nites game, I am sure they will mention it again.

Lets see First Ice, Cuddy has 3 of the 6 rbis so far. Ya I would bench him.

Oh boy we get Carlos tonight.

Gary,

What are you gonna do with all these fair weather Twinkie fans? Second game of the season and they are already bailing out on the Twinks when they fall behind! Long season to go man. You better start cheerleading a little more and get your boys fired up, my Pale Hose are waiting to give you a little dose of game #163 all over again! LOL

I think the twinks are gonna pull off more than a few wins like they did tonight. After that first game hiccup, they turned things around pretty nicely. It's a LONG season, but I think we are gonna see the Twins right up there. No game 163 needed this year. Twins by 6 games!

Sometimes I think Gary and I are the only PP's on the board...took the grandson last night for his BD. Good game once Slowley figured himself out. And Crain looked good as the setup man! smile

Did I say anything about benching him??? Didn't think so.............. just get him out of the 3 hole. You should knock in a few when you come up with guys in scoring positoin every time.

The problem with that is, who are you going to put up in the 3 hole instead of Cuddyer.

Im a little concerned with the fact that all 3 starters have given up at least 5 runs... the bullpen has looked pretty good and the twinks can hit against average pitching but King Felix was real good. Overall, a win today and bring on the whimp sox

drop him to #6 or #7 spot and move everybody else up. easy solution until Mauer comes back.

Windy I know. I thought I was in the wrong state. The Negative Nellies are out in force around here. Oh well they will come around in time. ULT and I will carry the load and I am sure there are more Peter Positives out there. Come out come out where ever you are. gringrin

First Ice Mike, sorry didn't mean to apply that, but there is a lot negativity towards Cuddy, and there is a few that would like to see him on the bench. I posted a wrong stat concerning Cuddy knocking in 3 of the first 7 runs(not 6).

Should he move down in the order, maybe later, but right now no.

There should not be much complaining abouts swings or certain plays as everyone is having some issues. This will fix itself in a short time. Last night, it was good to see others contributing

Windy, you better have your team ready, Were comin and I believe we have revenge on our minds. Were comin.

Been a Twinks fan all my life, it's in my blood. I'll cheer them on good or bad. As for our team I'll let Gardy decide whats best. He's done pretty good so far I'll trust him to keep on doing what he does best. If myself or any of us were better at it we wouldn't be on here making comments, we would be on the field doing the job.

Twins need to stop knocking on the playoff door and start getting deep into the playoffs and to the world series. Until then the fans will remain overly critical.

Perk looking good today. Problem is, our half innings go by in a NY minute. Geez, is Washburn the second coming of Bert himself?

The Pale Hose? Yeah, whatever, no team took a step backward as far as they did methinks.

Thanks Windy, I appreciate that. Hope you have good weather for the series.

SledNeck we are a small market team as you know and every year would be a lot to ask for. With teams out there trying to buy championships, it is very tough. We are due to go deep soon.

Im well aware of that, but it can be done..and when it is, its much sweeter than teams that buy titles.

the being due part is why we are overly critical as fans

Jeez, look at the Cubby fans. Nobody's more positive and upbeat than they are and no one has a right to be more critical. There's more "positive Pete's" out here than you think. We're just not as vocal as you. I just hope that when the Twins do go deep into October you'll finally just go away quietly. grin

Totally agree there sir, Would like to see it more often also.

Those players are the ones we have and need to support around them. Just to bad all teams can't be the same, and some players being very very greedy, ruin the chance for that to happen.

How nice would that be, ALL TEAMS ON EQUAL GROUND

      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.
