Finally looks like a good move to me. Course he'll probably hit .210 next year after he finally understands the Twins way.

Haha that was my exact thought. I am surprised Willingham is still here also

Good move. I like Suzuki and his .306 average.

so when he's hitting .225 next year - will this be the new 'worst contract in team history'?

Not even close. A really good catcher that only hits .225 is still a good deal at 6 mill.

That would be Nishioka.

Guess we add him to the overabundance of 1b and dh we already have on the team. Then again he might be catching if Suzuki eventually hits like his career avg.

I like his 700+ OPS. He comes from the Oakland A's, a team that stresses the ability to get on base and score runs, period. Not power or batting average or home runs or stats that are often overrated. If you really watch him at bat, you see how patient he is, taking pitches and swinging at what he knows will work for him. Versus hacking away at everything. Kind of why Mauer is in the predicament he is. I don't think the Twins can screw Suzuki up. Just a matter of him staying healthy or the Twins making as mistake or getting rid of him in some stupid trade.

      A new lake...... does that mean you’ve fished Vermilion?   i can’t comment on Pelican. But, I’ve spent many seasons fishing Vermilion for bass. I’d consider( any many others more in the know) Vermilion as a premier bass lake.

      I contacted the MN DNR regarding the possibility of a straight walled rifle cartridge becoming legal in the shotgun zones and they stated that it’s a possibility but it’s not a decision the DNR makes. The legislature needs to make that change. If you are interested in this being changed make sure you contact your legislators and the DNR and maybe something it can be changed in the future.

      Too early...but I wish there was enough ice.

      A couple of us bass guys are looking for a new lake to fish next summer. We are planning on spending a week on a lake and was wondering if Pelican was a good destination for our group.  A lot of the lake looks shallow on the map we have. Any comments on this lake woukld be appreciated.

      You are being kind. I remember a few really bad trips mixed in. One thing about your crew was that you could turn a bad fishing area into very good fishing.

      There is still a lot of moving water. This morning it’s -3 but that’s not nearly cold enough to get things rolling for the harbor. Be patient it’ll be ready within the next Few weeks probably.

      One could always build on than use your M18 or other drill battery to power. Fixtures are under $10, a reel of 300 50/50 bright white leds <$7 and dimmer for $3. I slip mine above one of the roof supports & put battery in net overhead storage with hat, gloves and coat. LED Hub LightHB.mp4

      Thanks, Kelly.  You are missed!  Many great trips with you!

      I doubt it, but you can check the harbor cams during the day.  http://www.duluthharborcam.com/p/blog-page_13.html As we drove into Duluth Friday afternoon there were 4 ships outside the lift bridge waiting. It was stuck down from ice after the big storm and I think it just got running again Thursday.

      I used to laugh at old people, wonder how many are laughing at me now. 😂
