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.

      Hello!! Why yes, been in the woods lots this winter. Heading back in a couple days again. Gotta isolate to stay healthy you know.

      Condensation in portables directly related to the amount of propane used. Each pound of propane burned produces about 1.6 # of water. (1 1/2 pint) Ice melt from heater also adds moisture. Better insulated, less heat & condensation. A floor also greatly reduces moisture. The colder the outside temp the greater visible condensation. At -17 Deg. frost visible in my 949i Eskimo Hub - Big Buddy running on Hi, 18,000 BTU. At 21,600 BTU per pound propane frost in 4 hours on walls and celing. New Otters have excellent insulation, better than my Eskimo.

      This is missing the point so far I didn’t even want to start commenting on it.  So, that’s it, I’m done with that one.   Wardens should be following the mandate for whatever reason one wants to choose.  And we have the right to ask them to or not let them in.  Pretty simple.  And I’m not a mask Nazi either.  I hate em too but I wear them for others.

      Seems intentional, I would say.  They’d probably have too many and maybe too congested there?  Or just more of closed residential perk?   Nice to have some discussion on it even though the OP didn’t seem to care after all.

      Snowmobile trails not good. Haven't seen any grooming. Only good place to ride is in the woods. You can go anywhere on a wheeler in the woods and most anywhere on lakes. Look out for slush on lakes as we've had alot of that.
    • smurfy
      just talked to a friend of mine, north of deer river and said they havent, didnt get alot of snow with the last roiund. he said getting around on the lakes seemed pretty easy.   i  was up over the new years weekend and when i drove home the trails i did see along with the road ditches looked pretty beat up. thats the best i got!!!!!!!
    • SkunkedAgain
      When I was up two weeks ago, the lake snow was getting thin and was barely thick enough in the woods for snowmobiles. Have we added much snow lately?   Any word on the trails?
