We are not going to win with pitching and defense, Gardy needs to go.

winning with pitching and defense still works when you have pitching and defense. instead we have a bunch of guys who battle their tails off on the mound and some sloths at the corner outfield spots and plouffe.

I vote for Ozzie Guillen if we must make a change. I'd rather keep Gardy though.

So who would make a good coach for the twins?

This team needs a leader with a personality like that of a Dan Gladden...tough, gritty and in your face.

Too many hands being held right now and over the last 4-5 years...we need someone who'll kick a behind or two.

There is not one coach in baseball that could coach these guys into contenders. No need to blame the coach for the lack of talent and pitching on this team. They have actually played better than my expectations thus far this year.

The team lacks leadership...period. When the Twins were winning championships it was with guys who had some "grit"...some "in your face" baseball.

Name the leader on the team the last 5 years...Mauer...Morneau...Gardy...it's a joke.

Gardy lost control of his team and "system" when he let Mauer play him like a fool 2 years ago. Mauer may make the Twins millions off of his jersey sales and ticket revenue...he'll NEVER lead the Twins to anything close to a championship.

Mauer is not a leader...Gardy is afraid of upsetting Mauer...Twins are doomed as long as Mauer is on the roster...it is that simple.

One of the two has to go....

Pohland played this state as he fielded 2 good teams a few years back to get his new ballpark. Since then, he cuts the payroll.

I do not blame a coach for lack of skilled players, thats the owners fault.

Until people stop going to the ballpark and attendence drops, JIm P will not spend another dime. Thier attendance should drop this year as the newness has worn off on the new ballpark.

I would rather have 2-$12 million pitchers on the roster than Mauer. The good pitcher could take us alot farther than 1 bat.

the main reason the cubbies will never compete, is all the stupid sell outs. there are a bunch of fans that back this team for reasons un-known to me. why pay millions to players you don't even need to make millions, they are already doing this with bad players. the only way the cubbies can win it all, is to loose there fan base, and start to sign good players that can win.

the twins have started the same path.

The twins sweep the sux and not a peep? Almost back to .500 and slowly creeping up the central standings

It is pretty amazing that we're nearing the half way point of the season and only 6 games out.

The starting pitching has been surprizing pretty good lately, the bullpen is vey good, and recently the bottom of the order is realy stepping up and getting some timely hits.

Still be a miracle if they go anywhere, but it's been fun to watch the young guys step in and make a difference. Bodes well for the near future I'd say.

So are they in the buying or selling mode at this time??

The right deal no matter what??

Such a conundrum.

This team is surprising me. Not beating the better teams a lot but doing well against the mediocres out there which wasn't the case last year. I do hope they are looking to future as trade deadline gets nearer. Don't think anyone really believes they are a playoffs (playoffs!?) type team yet but the future looks to have potential if they make the right moves during and following this season.

I hope that homerun Morneau hit the other day is the start of something. Some power to go along with his .290 average would be great!

Morneau needs a few more homeruns so we can get something for him. I'm sure there will be a fire sale and a few guys will be traded.

Think I heard there are 7 former twins on all star team. A few other former twins doing much better than they did here too. And of course Perkins who was already on the team back when they traded for Capps. More evidence that they need some major housecleaning there? Definitely could be argued.

Will Perkin's go to Detroit to help them win the division? Bremer and Coomer were talking about this during a game the other day.

I'd be surprised if he went there but anything is possible and he's probably got the highest trade value among players on the team that could be traded. I like him as a player and he seems classy given his treatment but closers on bad teams aren't used a whole lot so would not be surprised if they aren't getting some offers for him.

Boston is another place he could end up.

Good start after the All Star Break, 4-1. Likely just another bright spot in a tough year.

I really enjoyed listening to T.K. on the broadcasts last week. I could watch a lot more bad baseball if he was on each night.

      Looking at the calendar 3/14 is an option so go ahead and pencil this in with more details to come.

      Great report!

      The Harbor has been a TOUGH BITE this year.  Where are all the bigger fish at?  
    • IceHawk
      Fished this Morning on a area lake on the Horseshoe chain and it was a crappy kind of Day. 😁 Got out before daybreak to get setup to be in position as I found this pod aka school of fish couple days ago and the bite window is early and late. Midday bite has been non existent with this school of fish as they move into a different feeding area.  Cant stress enough how location plays such a huge role in a day of success. This summer walleye fishing I came across a  perfect transition area and I made a note and GPS it to investigate this winter. To my good fortune its been holding some nice pies recently .  Its a rock to sand transition are that is in located in around 20-26 foot of water. Zooplankton is thick early and late in the day and the crappies are actively on a tear feeding during this period roaming the area. Key lures were Clam drop kicks and Amped outdoors 4 mm tungsten heads with plastic bodies specifically Panfish Plastics Chigger Fry's. Hot Colors were white and firecracker. The Thorne Bros lineups sealed the deal especially the Power Noodle when they were aggressive and switching out to the Tripwire when they got a little more stubborn and bit softer.  Been using some of the Clam inline Gravity's and have been real impressed with them so far. Great real at a reasonable price.  3 lb Berkley micro ice solar green was line of choice. Caught many crappies from 10-12 1/2  inch range with two over 13 and the biggest measureing out at 13 1/2 inch all fish were released to fight another day. Looking forward to checking out another area soon I found this fall as I think there's a pot of gold wating for me under the hardtop!😉

      The walleye looks nice too!😁

      Not an east end guy, but don't people fish pike bay in may?   Reread Cliff's and Ace's notes from past years.   Depends somewhat on what "spring" is like this year.
    • delcecchi
      There is a fisheries survey report done annually by the MN DNR that provides some information about abundance and size of fish by basin.   The fisheries management plan has even more as I recall.    My PB largie was around 20"   The document are both available on line.      Lots more walleye on east end, but west end is coming back some.  
    • SkunkedAgain
      I have a 16.5ft Alumacraft with a 90hp and can get anywhere on Vermilion. Assuming you've got at least a 40hp I wouldn't be afraid to stay anywhere. Someplace mid-lake might be advantageous because both ends will be equally accessible. It's such a beautiful lake that "getting there" should be as joyful as the fishing. I'll defer to others if there is a size difference in smallies in the two basins. I've only heard about and seen it in the walleye. The rusty crayfish have affected vegetation and cover on the east end, so that may have an effect on LM bass. The smallies are more rock oriented (kind of like our Rockin' Tommy) so you should have good luck everywhere.
