Well on the midst of a lost season, the youth movement as well as the rest of team seems to finally be coming together.

Nice run since early July, Kepler kid looks to stick around.  Finally been fun to watch recently.

After 7+ months of no chatter, what are your thoughts?

We still watch or listen to them regularly.  Was painful first month or so but has gradually improved.  It's actually fun watching this young team grow and improve.

Definitely funner to watch now, but if we are in a youth movement we all know what needs to happen.  Not to start the the mauer bash again and i know he has hit better the last few weeks but with trevor back today would be nice to see sano at first and plouffe at third w/o mauer at dh. Let vargas dh or bring park back for another chance. As bad as some think park was he did hit 12hr w/ i believe 24 rbi in 60 some games. Mauer  9hr 42rbi in 104 games. I know its impossible to have a 24 million dollar utility player / pinch hitter but at some point gotta think about the future. Im guessing that will be after 2018 season unfortunately.  Either way at least worth watching now. Just a number is seen to think about. If mauer reaches 60 rbi which he probably wont he will make $384k per rbi. Most people bust their ass to make that in 5-10 yrs.

Sano's only asset in the field is a great arm which is meaningless at first. If he cant catch a pop fly at 3b he cant catch it if the twins hide him at 1b either.

I think the Twins needed to work with him better at RF but coming in 20lbs overweight to start the year didnt help and thats on Sano.

I don't know if Sano will become any kind of reliable fielder, anywhere.

I like his power potential, all other stages of his game leave little to be desired.  Although, he probably won't improve without playing time.  I think he destined to be a DH, with spot duty in the field.

Well so far 2017 has been much easier to watch!  The twins youth movement seems to be coming together nicely.

First place in the central into June and playing great on the road is a good sign.

What I like so far:

 

Starting pitching is improved especially Santana and Berrios.

 

Fielding has been fantastic!  impressed with, Buxton and nice improvement from our corners Maurer and Sano.

 

Sano is the real deal with a bat in his hands.  Lots of quality major league at bats out of him this year.

 

Molitor is letting his starts go a little longer.

What I dont like:

 

Relief pitchers!!  never comfortable.

 

We have to start winning at home.

      Ice on the majority of lakes on the Iron Rage excluding big water and the mine pits.  I did see someone out today in a hub shelter on a smaller lake.  I'm shooting for a Red Lake trip Sunday if not I'll be fishing smaller waters around Grand Rapids

      Its icing up pretty good from LF to Fort already.  Big change overnight last night.
    • monstermoose78
      Yes someone went through on skogman

      On the south end...  Most open water anglers put away the boats and are looking forward to ice fishing.  Ice forming on back bays and on different parts of the big lake.  With the cold snap, things are coming along nicely.  When the time is right, resorts will communicate when initial ice accesses will be available.  That time is not yet, but it won't be too long!  On the Rainy River...   A few anglers out braving the elements with good success, but for the most part, anglers have boats put away for the year.  Some anglers fished last week with decent success and some big walleyes.  With increased current this fall, river ice will be suspect.  Back bays iced up. Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is forming throughout the Angle.  Some reports around the inlet of 3 inches of ice, but no ice travel is recommended.  Most bays and some areas throughout islands iced up.  NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.

      Just saw the report  
    • Mnfisher
      Heard a rumor that someone went through the ice on Skogman.  Anyone know for sure?

      Cripes, I better get the boat out one last time this week.  Although I'm sure the river will be open for a few more weeks.

      It looks like it could be another "2014" Thanksgiving weekend if this weather keeps up.    That was just incredible to see hundreds of full size pickups and icehouses driving on the lake (south side at least) the day after Thanksgiving!!   Junior and I took the ATV and otter house out for 4 hours that friday afternoon and 4 more hours on saturday morning, and caught 73 eyes.  We were only out in 8' of water but were able to keep away from most of the crowd, and just hammered the fish. Bobbers, spoons didnt matter.  Hope to have a repeat performance later this month👍
