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.

      Just got back home, checked Coon Lake, Anoka. 3" at East access off Lexington. Only 20 ft off shore lots of ice cracking. 1" at the easement access West shore 3 ft. off shore. Couple 100 ducks on open water adjacent shore. 4 guys fishing the channel one with a double Eskimo hub. They said the channel had 4". May be a challenge to get my required 6" before Christmas with December warmer NOAA forecast. New K-drill rocks.   20201204_125309.mp4

      This was from today. West End, Wakemup Narrows and Frazer still have open water.

      Welcome and what would you like your handle to be?

      Try a lake in the canyon area the other day. Solid 4-5" most of the way out,  but got close to middle of the lake, chisel went thru on second hit. Looked like maybe 2",  decided to turn around and head back to shore.

      After I made the handle, I then saw yours...then I was like darn. 364 days until I can change it again so it’s not weird😂

      wednesday I drove up to backus from Elk River along 10 and saw one portable out on Crow Wing Lake and other than that most lakes appeared to have for the most part just skimmed over.  the loop home from backus i went through crosslake and then over to 169 along mille lacs and there were some small lakes frozen over but did not see a sole out on them.

      Some bonehead decided to try driving out on Lake Bemidji this week already.  Of course he went through only 100 yards from shore.

      I went yesterday for about 3.5 hours and got a couple.  Shoulda had a third with some better shooting.  I raised about 40 in addition to 5 deer.  The dog made a real nice retrieve on a wounded one too.
