Twins in 1st Place - It's been a while

Recommended Posts

Rick

Who'd of thunk all those crazy kids with a few choice veterans sprinkled in would be in 1st place at the end od May.

I'm guessing it has to be a combination of Mauers beard or Hunter's getting the young guys into it. :)

What do you think...how long will they stay in 1st place. I'm betting they are in 1st for a couple weeks.

I wouldn't be surprised if they maintain this for a while. No one saw them coming. They're on a roll and Molly looks so far to be just what the doctor ordered. It's sure refreshing to come home after a long day out in the fields, do chores, crack a cold one, start the grill and settle into a game knowing they actually have a chance to win. Starting pitching with all these renovated arms has exceeded most expectations. Sure they've been shelled a few times but the thing that seems to happen is they're dusting themselves off and getting back after 'em the next time out. We were wondering how they're going to shift things around when Santana becomes eligible again. A nice problem to have for a change. :)

The only bad thing with Ervin is that he is not playoff eligible, should we make it that far. 

Speaking of playoffs they threw out the stat the other day that we really only need to play 10 games over .500 the rest of the way and we should have a shot.

I'm with mrklean, not really sold on it yet. It all depends on if our pitching can stay consistent and we can stay healthy.

I agree, the Twins have been fun to watch so far this year, it is nice to see some young kids having fun. I just dont want to jinx them with play off talk quite yet.

Blew a 4-12 lead last night to lose 6-4. My 2 week prediction went out the door in a hurry.

Now who is brave enough to predict when the Twins will be back in 1st place again?

The Twins have the 2nd best record in baseball. Now in 1st place all by themselves for the 1st time this season.

​It's unbelievable. You look at this lineup on paper and you have to wonder how the heck they're doing it. I'll enjoy it while it lasts, but honestly? I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop.

My guess is the injury bug will catch up with us soon.

So it seems a new coach helped the team more then I thought it would.

Well there looking good, as long as they don't play Det. Why did they play Perkins in that 6 - 4 loss  in a tie game, I'm still not sure he's closer, he scares me

Not happy about the sweep by KC but I am happy with what the Twins have done so far this year. When Santana gets back in under a month it should have a ripple effect on improving the Twins pitching.

Good to see Buxton & Vargas contribute last night.Vargas's homer was crushed,he's a big guy,look out if he gets his timing down & learns to lay off the low & away off speed breaking stuff

      Looking to trade for a Mossberg 510 mini. Ive got B2's or other waterfowl equipment. Possibly a 9.8 merc that needs an impeller. Tell me what you want.

      I dunno @LoonASea, I used to wonder the same thing.  But I have seen several floaters plucked off the water’s surface by eagles before they were completely dead.   I had the same comment about hooking mortality on Mille Lacs; how can they say such things without seeing a bunch of floaters?  Then I started hearing from friends that actually fish the lake that say they see them often since the tight slots have come into effect.     Rush Lake by Rush City had reports of hundreds of dead crappies under the ice by Crane Island.  A deep hole I’ve fished myself and put back lots of crappies I’ve had to close the mouth on to get them to swim back down the hole.  Made me wonder...   What I like about the ND study is it’s actually a study, not just feelings or intuition.  I don’t like the news any more than most with the exception that it lends some reference to an often debated topic.  Some “proof” if you will.  I’ve felt this to be an issue for several years already but didn’t have anything to refer to except my own personal experiences.  So I’ll continue to fish with this information in mind and continue to look for more.

      On Gen 1 build I uses a 720p camera I sealed inside a small flashlight. On Gen 2 I purchased the camera, cable olreadr on a reel with a 1200TVL resolution. From what I can determine it should equal or better than Gen 1. Video of the Gen 1. Gen 2 not complete till after ice out.

      Hello, I am new to this site but came here in hopes someone...anyone can point me in a direction to purchase Minnesota wild rice to plant.  I live in Maine and want to plant some in my farm pond for myself and my ducks.  Any info is greatly appreciated as I am only able to find parched rice on line.   Thank you for any direction you can point me in.  Respectfully, Lora-Jean

      If catching a fish out of water too deep for a safe release and releasing it ,,,,, Why arent the cabin / lakeshore owners complaining about lots of dead fish washing up on shore??? ,,, Do they sink to the bottom ,,,they cant all be eaten by birds

      mbeyer, can't be from this year, can it?
    • JerkinLips
      Colder weather is better for the venison, but the warm days were sure nice for sitting in the stand or in the boat that year.

      On a better note, I left the North Arm and headed south. Had fun playing with my new Garmin Live Scope. I probably would not have caught anything today without it. The fish were there but extremely picky. You had to use just the right action to entice a hit. Kinda like ice fishing for stubborn walleyes. Very small lure as well. I caught everything vertical jigging where I could see how the fish were reacting - nothing casting.   Would have weighed in about 18 pounds if I had been in the tournament. Maybe I should enter - then if I see you catch a fish, I can hover right over your spot. Apparently paying an entry fee allows you to disrespect other fishermen.     Rainy2019-9-14.mp4

      Idiot loose on Rainy!   Day started out nice and then on my first spot am anchored up for 30 minuters and casting about 50 feet away on a reef. Here comes a big Ranger headed right at me. I figure it must be one of my buddies to come so close but I don't recognize him. Does he stop at 100 feet away? NO. Does he stop 50 feet away - NO. How about 25 feet? again no, He come withing 10 feet and then says," SORRY TO CROWD YOU BUT I AM IN A BASS TOURNAMENTt" !!!?? Then he proceeds to go right where I am casting - I lose it and go ballistic. Why does he think you can hover right over where somebody is casting? IDIOT! Whole lake to fish and he has to start TEN feet from my boat.   I left the North Arm where I had planned to spend the day. Didn't need to run into any more jerks. Went south. Ended up with about an 18 pound bag of 5 bass. See next video for more enjoyable viewing.   https://youtu.be/aGgdkHGLkvM Idiot_tournament_fisherman..mp4
