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.

      Nice walleye, I have caught several walleyes while fishing crappies. If there are smaller 4-6 inch crappies around there will be Walleyes not far away.  Lately several guys I have chatted with claim they see crappies on the Vex's but they won't bite.  I wonder if those are really shiners?  As there are lots of shiners in Buffalo lake, and several other lakes here in central Mn, have large amount of shiners roaming the lakes.  I use minnows in several different areas,  and sizes can make a difference as well.  If the crappies are biting good, even fatheads will work and take the bigger ones at that. if it's slow smaller minnows, down to a size 16 trout bug on a drop shot.

      been there a time or 2 Cret!  hope your back is feeling better!!
    • jigginjim
      I had a cheaper unit I would leave out to save time fishing, not like it cost me a lot of money. Once it was banked up, it was well worth leaving it on the lake, saved about 30 minutes banking time and drilling holes.
    • jigginjim
      Sounds good, going up on Wednesday, fishing through Saturday. Would like to get a good mixed bag of fish.  May bring some 7-up & butter, for the pout.  bring lots of Jigs, spoons and other baits.  It has been a fews years since my last trip to LOTW,  been hitting lots of other lakes.
    • jigginjim
      Just all depends on your choice of area, which access you go out from?  Been a while since I was out there chasing the fish around.  Although the tullies, do sound like lots of fun.

      Here’s part two of this post I guess! Got out with my older brother this morning.  Headed north to a area neither of us have really been to before. To our surprise we both limited on some dandy pike (spearing) in a couple hours! Was a great time and ended with some good eats! Great weather as well other than the front moving through. Over all we seen a very good amount of fish but they weren’t super aggressive today with the cold front rolling through. Ooh yeah if anyone was wondering area.... BLA.

      I release all gills over 8 inches and I release most fish i catch. The photo was of one of a few nice ones released today. I was able to chat with some young guys who were impressed with the number of fish I was catching. They all asked why I was not keeping all of the gills and I said I only keep them when I am going to eat them as they are best fresh. I also explained the importance of release bug bluegills and to eat those 7-8 inchers. Both you guys said that make sense and both said they would release the big gills from now on.

      Fished several NE Wright county lakes got on some really nice bass with panfish jigs the smaller the better. Had a flurry for about half hour many largemouth caught. Then did a night bite for the crappies It really pays to move around. Also learned from some on the MInnow or not to minnow thread to upsize I used a small forage minnow spoon with 3-4 spikes that really was the ticket. Thanks all for the help everyone. The fish seem to me to be just starting to move a bit shallower with the warmer weather coming this weekend it should just get better. Most of the fish were in 12-17 feet of water.

      Yes we made one trip into Little Johnson, planned on spending the day up there and had a thunderstorm move in around 3pm, got out of there pretty quick as it was a 45 minute boat ride back. Caught a bunch of Smallies up there but no Walleye.  We will hit Little Johnson harder this May when we go.

      I fished Dog many years ago. All it had at the time were small crappies. But population seemed pretty good. Always caught fish.
