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.

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.

      Hi guys,   I'm driving up to fish the Alexandria area and would like pointers on which lakes would be best for quality fish.  I've read about darling and carlos but feel those might be to heavy pressured and possible to big of a lake for me.  Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Summer slipping away means Fall fishing though!

      Did you find most of those in the afternoon? We didn't do so well. Tried for eyes on various midlake humps for about an hour and then changed tactics to panfish for about 45 minutes before we had to leave. Found one decent size northern pike but that was it for us.    Enjoyed having the opportunity to meet you, Borch. Too bad we weren't able to spend more time. Maybe next time.🙂

      The tournament the girlfriend has been fishing ended Saturday night so we were able to take off early Friday and make it out for an evening bite and again Saturday morning.
      Friday night fishing was good but a lot of 6-7" gills but we did land a few 9.75" and 9.5" gills.  Really tough bite had to cover LOTS of water to find them.   Saturday morning the crappies moved in and were really aggressive but they were 6-8" with only a handful over 10". We landed a few more 9.5" but we had to cover miles of shoreline jigging trying to find them.  Boats next to us weren't even catching a blue gill it was a tough bite.  Very negative bite.   We left the water Saturday and was instantly approached by the game warden.  I was working on my trailer prior to loading the boat and he was asking the typical questions about fishing because he's seen my trailer very often at the access.  He was pleasantly surprised that we didn't keep a fish.  He said everyone has been keeping limit after limit and he's seeing the size drop from almost 9" average down to a group that morning had kept 7" for 4 limits.  Told him we kept 8 fish last Saturday for some meals and that was it in the 3 weeks we've been fishing up there, needless to say I think he was shocked and proud that people weren't just taking limit after limit home.   Tournament ended Saturday night at midnight for the girlfriend.  The app keeps track of everyone's best 10 fish and her length at the end of the tournament was 95.5" which puts her in first place. Second place is at 91.5" and third place 91.25" so unless something major happens and they don't like our pictures she should have the win!  It was interesting in the beginning to be excited for 8" gills then after we got 10 of them they jumped to 8.5" then to 9.0" then 9.25" then pushing for 9.5".  Was a lot of fun.  I believe she has 2-9.25" and 4-9.5" with remaining being 9.75".  The final 10 fish were all caught in Becker County on one lake and were let go to swim again.  I stress a lot catch and release and keeping only what you want or NEED for a meal but during this tournament we caught the same fish 4 times.  He is blind in his right eye, big beautiful blue gill and I caught him week ago Saturday and again Sunday and the girlfriend repeated me on Saturday and Sunday this weekend.  Each time he measure 9.25" so we either caught the same fish 4 times or we caught 4 different gills all the same length in the same area of the lake.   All fish were also caught on Panfish Pirate 5 mm lead jig in Lipstick color with either Push Up or Bubble Gum soft plastic Kraken.  We are waiting for an official announcement from the organizers that these scores are official and I'll report back at that time!

      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.  
    • leech~~
      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.
