Harris?

Am I the only one who would like to see Harris play more? Last night he had another great game, 3 for 5 with 2 runs scored and an RBI. Plus he can sure rocket the ball to first from short!

We went there last year...it didn't work. Maybe Harris as SS and Punto at 2nd, but not Harris at 2nd base.

I think he should be playing right now while Casilla is struggling. Move Punto over to 2b for awhile and work Casilla in there sparingly until he gets his stroke going.

It would be nice to do that, but I bet Punto would whine and cry about it. Gardy never should have said he would be the starting short stop.

The Twins are facing 3 starting right handers this weekend against the Royals. I still think they should take out Casilla at 2nd and replace him with Harris for 2 of the 3 games this series. Harris is hitting too good right now to be sitting on the pine behind a struggling Casilla. I hope Casilla and some of the others that are stuggling can turn it around quickly.

They better win tonight against the Pontoon!

That is an unwarranted shot at Punto. Has he ever whined about anything?? The guy does everything thats asked of him and plays his a$$ off no matter what his role is. Punto is a team player. Harris does need to play with his hot stick - Mauer can bat second and put Harris down in the order. Bat Harris eighth and Punto ninth.

Enough of Punto Already, get Harris in at short! Punto is an automatic out when he gets up to bat. He saves more runs for us than he gives up my a$$!

I'd have to agree with you. From what I've seen, it's not like Harris' defense is that much worse if at all than Punto's. Sure, Harris can't hit like some of the guys in the lineup, but he sure can hit better than punto. His arm is also quite a bit stronger than Punto's from what I've seen. He would make a better all around shortstop for the team IMO.

Its to the point where if Punto never made another error for the rest of his life his hitting is so bad that he shouldnt be in the line-up

I too would like to see Harris play more. I do not believe that Punto is in fact a switch hitter. Many American league pitchers could hit .143. That is Nick's batting average against left handers when he bats right handed. He's hitting a whopping .209 batting at his best, left handed. He is not a switch hitter. The Twins should platoon Harris & Punto at SS.

Harris just made a nice play, with a lot of help from Morneau. Throw was in the dirt, but one out of 10 aint bad!

Harris had an all around good night, went 2-4 with that great play you mentioned.

No way nick Punto and his weak arm could have made that throw that Harris did last night

Said it on a different thread on here, but to me Harris has been the only bright spot of that trade with the Rays so far.

That is true. Delmon showed signs of great hitting last year, but so far this year he hasn't found it.

Hopefully every position player will start doing decent, so the Twins can have some leverage in a trade for a reliever. I would like to see Kubel pick it up a little, he really slowed down throughout May. Some people just have streaks.

it's Kubey-doo's knees again.

He has 2 3 run HRs today, and games only half over

I just saw that, 1st and 2nd innings. Thats one way to get out of a slump.

      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. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Those are some fine specimens. Great job
    • gimruis
      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"   
    • Brianf.
      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
