I say keep Morales and let Redmond go. Maybe send morales down until Mauer proves hes healthy enough to be the everyday catcher.

Or even send Gomez down and keep Morales on as a DH.

I don't see Redmond going anywhere. I would think Morales would be sent down to keep him sharp and in game shape.

I thought for sure you were going to start you're annual move Mauer to 3rd, Outfield, DH campaign when I first read the thread topic!.... smile

huh?

Mauer would make a good RF

morales is getting better behind the plate and whose bat would u rather have in the line-up?

Hey, the kid (Morales) picked off a guy at 2nd today. First one of the year by a twins catcher.

That being said, neither Reddog or Morales is an everyday guy. I would figure Morales goes down to AAA to stay in game shape and Redmond takes his place on the bench catching a couple specific pitchers and daygame after nightgame situations.

Having reddog bat is like having a pitcher bat... that being said, wow, his avg is higher than Crede's and Cuddy's.

what will happen? i'm going with they will put him back on the dl or cuddles goes on it. they both cant be healthy at the same time can they. i cant believe cuddles hasnt broke a nail yet for he sure hasnt broke a sweat yet. 3 pitches and back to the dugout is getting old.

They would be fools to keep Redmond over Morales. But then again, they are the Twins...

Remember...Redmond is also a 2nd coach. His experience and clubhouse work is worth keeping him at least for this year. Morales will get his turn.

Geez guys, nothing like jumping on the bandwagon the second it gets out of the garage! Morales has what, 40 major league at bats? Maybe, just maybe, we should just settle down and see how he progresses over the course of the season at AAA. Maybe Reddog or Mauer get hurt again. But to cut Reddog for a guy with 40 big league at bats is crazy.

Finally a voice of reason.

Send Morales down and keep Redmond. Like it was said earlier he is like a coach and has the experience to come thru in the clutch and is durable. Look at next season for Morales to stay. He can work on his game in AAA and get call ups when needed during the season. Redmond may be expendable next season to save money.

If Twins want to keep three cathers to be on the safe side, then I say send Gomez down to AAA. He is not helping at this point and is having all kinds of issues in the field and at the plate. He needs to mature more in AAA. It helped Span/Casilla last season.

DONT go with the hot bat, go with the dinosauric bat

Don't worry, if and when Morales goes 0-10, you will all change your minds again. gringrinwink

Morales is hitting good right now but according to the Twins radio I think Jack Morris stated that Morales barely beat out Butara in spring training for the roster spot......Redmond has always been a good bat for the twins and I am sure is an asset with our pitching staff. Send Morales down when Mauer gets back.....

Keep Redmond, send Morales down. I agree, releasing or sending Redmond down shouldn't happen, send Morales down and figure Mauer will probably get hurt again, or if Redmond is struggling and Moralas is having good at bats in AAA, then re-evauluate at that time.

Hey as many double palys as they have hit in the last few games, he will fit right in.

What???? Guy is the best hitter in the AL and he still gets ripped on by Twins "fans"?

No ripping, just a lot of hitting into DP's lately. But you have to admit, he does hit into his fair share and then some.

On April 23rd Morales was batting .250. By going 6 for 8 over two games he raised his average to .375. Two games does not make a career so I wouldn't too exited. The kid has some potential but Mauer and Redmond are better with the pitchers right now and frankly our pitchers could use some help. Let Morales go back to AAA and get at-bats every day. He would get very little playing time in majors when Mauer is back up AND healthy.

He will be a great option in 2010.

agree that Morales needs to go down once Mauer is healthy. He's doing decent batting but the D can always use some work and sitting on the bench isn't going to be of any value for Morales' development.

The same could be said for Gomez. He may as well go down and get work on his batting by playing every day and facing live pitching on a regular basis. I don't think that neither him nor Delmon are gaining much by sitting on the bench so may as well send one of them down so that both of them can get full time playing time.

And Morales got a taste. Sometimes that is all they need to "take the next step". By giving him a taste now, mabe he will be ready next year when called upon to be the backup to Mauer for the 2010 season. Remember, the only reason he was brought up was because of his bat, not his defence.

I hate to say it but this is Redmonds last year as a Twin, either by retirement or being cut/optioned out. Good luck to him though, he does have a future in coaching.

Mauer= best catcher in MLB

And most injury prone. Look, I like the guy, but haven't we all gone to work with a sore back?? I know I have, for about $6.25 million less than what he makes. Amazing how we didn't sign Pudge in the offseason as an insurance catcher. Guys rarely hurt and been at it alot longer than Joe, and Houston got him fairly cheap- still irks me.

The question is What will happen when Mauer comes back and my answer is that the Twins go on a streak and go on top of the division.

      Culling is not against the law in Minnesota unless you have a limit. (Which obviously applies in this case.)   They finally cleared up the language about it in the regs this year. 
    • delcecchi
      Since culling is against the regs in Minnesota, weighing in early is a great thing to do.   Congrats.

      We're heading up tomorrow. Hoping for walleye but looking to mostly relax. We'll have leeches and minnows and any tips would be great. Just looking for enough for a good fish fry. Thanks in advance.
    • Jetsky
      Caught a lot of small ones yesterday in 20 -30 ft.  A couple of eaters.  Minnows on Lindys clearly out fished the leeches on Lindys.
    • Hookmaster
      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.
    • MikeG3Boat
      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.
    • MikeG3Boat
      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.
    • partyonpine
      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.
    • Shulsebus
      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.
