Best Record in the AL???

The Twins have a chance at having the best record heading into the post season, with the Yankees and the Rays having to play each other 7 more times in the next 10 days. Man that would be awsome.

that would be pretty sweet. right now we're 4 games back of the yankees for best record.

at the very least, maybe we can lock up the division early and actually have a chance to set up our pitching rotation. meanwhile, hopefully the rays and yanks go right down to the last weekend of the year and enter the playoffs limping with no rotation set.

The Yanks spent $109,000,000 more on their 2010 payroll than the Twins ($206m vs $97m) and only have 4 more wins to show for it.

Money well spent? crazy

What about the suddenly Hot Rangers taking the last two against the Yanks. That would be a great match up to start the playoff esp if Lee can get it turned around.

Unbelievable what this team has done this year considering all the injuries!!

So much for the Metro-"dump"-Dome theory. We must have one of if not the best home records in baseball.

It's going to be an absolute crime if Washington gets manager of the year and Gardy gets robbed again!

It would be a shame to see that cokehead washington get manager of the year.

The rangers have one of the most stacked teams in baseball and they keep adding to it. If anything, they are underachieving.

Minnesota 48-23 at home. Yankees 49-25 at home. The dark horse....Colorado 50-22 at home.....29-42 on the road. If they could only play all their games at home this year!! HAHA!!

I think it will be VERY close for the Twins to have the best record on baseball.

The fact that Rays and Yankees play each other 6 more times the next couple of weeks helps alot if they split and we can keep it going. Rays have Garza against a Yankee rookie tonight. It's definitely achievable if we can keep the roll going. I think we all remeber what happened the last two times we had home field throughout in the playoffs. grin

I just hope the Twins can sew up it a week early to rest the pitching staff.

That would help the most at this time. We really do need some well rested pitchers.

I agree we haven't had that luxury in spite of us totally dominating this division for close to a decade. It's seems every season we take it down to the last day or a play-off.

6 man rotation down the stretch?

Gardenhire has never been "robbed" of Manager of the Year before. That said, considering the injuries the Twins have had (particularly losing Nathan for the whole season and Morneau for the second half), I think he deserves consideration this year.

It would be a huge boost if the Twinks could pass NY and Tampa and get home field advantage for the playoffs. I think that will be a bigger concern for them than lining up their rotation if they're still in the hunt for home field as the regular season winds down. I would rather have Slowey facing Texas at Target Field than Pavano facing the Rays in Tampa Bay.

You mean we don't want a 163 game regular season after winning a tie breaker and having the most tired team in the post season?

After the past two years, it almost seems wrong to play only 162 before playoffs!

:P

The Twins could go win all their remaining games and go 104-58,,, they still won't have home field throughout the playoffs,,, only the AL.

just a reminder that the pitiful NL did win the All-star game this year. Even a broken clock is right 2 times in 16? years!!!

Good point. As the Vikings will surely attest, it's important to at least have home field through your league's portion of the playoffs though eek

      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.

      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!
