Twins drive for 90 losses...

Recommended Posts

I know we are already on the same side as far as replacing mgr and staff but disagree that it is a given that no other mgr would do better with this roster. I'd argue that a good manager the past 4 seasons could have had this team back to .500 or better ball by now. good chance that the roster would look a little different too had a top mgr been in charge last 4 seasons. some of those many players who started playing much better after moving to a different team likely would still be here and producing under a better coaching staff.

quote=UMC]I don't really believe getting rid of Gardy will change much, but I do think it's just time for a change. Granted Tony LaRussa wouldn't have won 80 games with this crew but sometimes new ideas, new ways of doing things are just needed. His way of doing things seems to have run its course and really isn't inspiring anyone anymore. There's no doubt we are in desperate need of a new pitching coach.

One thing that strikes me is how many guys get better when they leave the Twins and how few get better when they come to the Twins. Phil Hughes is maybe the only guy in the last 10 years who I could argue has had an "up year" when joining the Twins mid-career.

I do get you are past wits end like a lot of Twins fans are.

So we can let slide a couple 2-3 Preposterously absurd deductions like the one above.

Molitor isnt ready I hope they go, when the time is right, with a coach with actual coaching experience.

Hog pile on Pier!.. grin

I new youd step up pier! So you are saying its time for gardy to go? I would agree if they finally decide to cut ties, its gotta be a whole new coaching staff with no twins ties.

When your first baseman has Gene Larkin- like numbers making $13 mill you won't win. Maurer needs to platoon in the outfield. Let Arcia or Kenny play first and DH.

Starting to hear some mention of possibility of gardenhire not coming back out there. Sure hope it happens. Another star trib poll asking if gardy and/or Ryan should be fired. Only 14% supporting gardy.

Surprised it was that high...I would guess Ryan's would be even lower!! I have been saying it for years "Fire Gardy!!!" Good guy but we need change in the organization and that starts with Ryan and includes Gardy!!

Caught the end of tonites game. After tigers won bremer was talking about "another championship" for the tigers. Get so tired of anyone with this organization and how they consider winning the division a huge deal. I highly doubt the tiger organization is content with a division "championship".

I agree. I like the sound of Dick's voice but he can be very nauseating. It's also annoying when teams celebrate winning the division or a wildcard with a champagne party. ALCS or NLCS wins maybe, World Series for sure, but wild card???

Bummer, the Twins hit 70 wins. Now the owners can say, "Look, we hit 70 wins, what an improvement this Year! Another on the cheap player here and one there and we'll be set for 2015." We'll see I guess. Maybe they will surprise us and spend some money, but I

m not holding my breath.

Coming down the stretch I was hoping the the twins would lose a few more games, however, I really wanted Kansas City to win the division over the tigers. So it kinda' sucked a little more watching the twin lose this particular series.

Dang. I missed my prediction by one game. They were better than I expected.

So with Gardy gone, how many of the other Twins coaches will be gone as well?

I blame the front office more than Gardy for the position the twins are in.

      i think we run into the situation where people have more free time in the winter, like seasonal workers and possibly fewer family activities/obligations?  Plus anybody with a vehicle can access the lake in the winter.  We can make summer or winter fishing as expensive as we want but accessing the entire lake in the winter can be done cheaply.

      Let us know how it goes please...pics too if you take any?

      If you were following the rules, you would have had your name and fishing license posted. I'm guessing that was not the case with this house.

      Some nice gills and perch you found! Too bad the trip was tough🙁 hoping to get back over there in the next couple weeks to  try and find some of those toad gills😏
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice job!!  Hope to do that once next winter.

      Fished hard for 3 days on Big Stone Lake and the bite was very, very tough.  The nice Marked a lot of fish and just couldn't get them to bite. Did manage some dandy perch and trophy gills,(released) but not a lot of numbers.  Saturday late afternoon we stuck 3 gills over 10".  My nephew had one that was at least 10 1/2" but released it before I could measure or get a pic.  Sunday we had 2 more at or just under 10".  Had to downsize to get bit.  Did catch a couple on set lines with fatheads.   Spoons didn't get bit often.  Tungsten jigs or flies tipped with plastics or eurolarvae got most of the action.   Found fish in or near basin areas near shallower rock structures.  We would drill, drill and then drill some more.  Once we found fish we would make smaller moves or wait out schools cruising through the area. Travel conditions were excellent.   Just had to watch out for the occassional drift or old plowed road.  Here are a few pics from the weekend.

      Hope you have a great trip Pete!

      Planning to head out on the chain this weekend. Friday and Saturday and maybe Sunday depending on my back. Need to get my new 2 man out more than twice this year. Last time out(new years) my son got an 8in walleye.
