Yankee's & Twins series

Recommended Posts

harvey lee

I thought just maybe we could slpit the series with the Yankee's since Mark T and Granderson are out of thier line up. They are not the Yanks of the past years and since they are in 4th place or next to last in thier division, maybe we could do better against them.

I guess not, hopefully we can win 1 game of this 4 game series.

I am afraid maybe our bullpen is getting tired as they have not been what they were at the beginning of the season or seem to not be that sharp.

Gardy and the Twins have a mental block when it comes to beating the Yankees. It seems like we psych ourselves out when the big bad Yankees come to town(or when we go there).

classic headcase scenario.

They have this fear of the Yanks its sick they play horrible against them no matter what, they pretty much have a AAA team out there and still cant win

Agreed Harvey.

How depressing, no Arod, no Jeter, No Tex, No granderson, most of what is left on their line-up is average at best. Kind of what we have, but we are home and getting our butts kicked.

For Pete's sake they have Travis Hafner batting clean-up for them.

The Twins are either mystified or stunned every time they see the pinstripes.

Cano is fun to watch. Best 2nd baseman in baseball.

Maybe the best player in BB period. Cano is awesome.

It's sad. Right now Cano is about the only player that plays regularly for Yankees that can beat ya and yet that's exactly what has been happening so far. You'd think the leaders if there is such a thing on this team could figure that out.

Twin's just do not have a good team, they have not for the last few years.

Payroll goes down many millions and it shows on the field.

If I were a better BB player, the last team I would want to play on would be the Twins. I would want to be on a team that desires to win and fields the needed players to do just that.

The owners simply do not spend enough to field a competitive team in an average division.

The Yank's are as weak as they have been for many years and we still cannot stay in the game with them. Does not say much at all for the Twin's.

Winning a series with the Ynaks years ago would have been a big deal, but with the team they are fielding this season, we beat a team who is also close to being in last place in thier division.

We beat there b Squad with our A and that is not sayiing much from two bad teams. Only thing for the Yankees they have players coming back that can help the team.They might not make the playoffs but they will make a pussh.

We have our best out there and nothing coming to help the team get batter right now. Taking two is not that great. The goal now is not to lose 100 games.We have 70 games left and we are 39-53 . Try hard not to lose 47 more games and we can stay under the 100 mark.

<---- Go CARDINALS!

I think the twins can stay under 100. Might be close though.

I was good to see the Twins take 2 from the Yanks and win the series. They have a very hard time with the Yanks even with a lesser team.

hard to believe the yanks are an above .500 team with so many no names in lineup and add it their division. but ya take wins against them any way you get it because theyve sure been few and far awa for many years.

      Nice work Borch! Or maybe I should say Mrs. Borch?   Looks like I missed out.

      Keys to make the blade work well. *Sharp! *Cutting edge needs to line up to the Gullet of the opposite blade! *Add a .020 shim 1/8" wide between blade screw and cutting edge. Increases cut angle to same as K-Drill! I'm working on another set welding  1/4" piece of blade to the outside blade edge extending the blade 1/2" past auger flight making it a full 8" hole. Note how the K-drill blade extends 1/2" past the auger flights.

      I like your blade work as well. Two summers ago when I sold my hand auger at my garage I think I throw out about 4 sets of those old blades as well!  😣
    • papadarv
      Made the drill point out of a spade drill bit welded to a 3/8” 16 bolt/screw than cut & ground to shape the point. Drilled & tapped center of blade bracket. Tap slowly as that steel seem a grade or two above basic mild steel.
    • bluewater2
      Thank you  
    • leech~~
      That is some sweet work right there. I see these at garage sales all summer, may be I should start picking them up?  Looks like you added a drill point on the end of them as well. The adapters and the end point are key items on making these right.
    • papadarv
      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.
