Don't really care for him or dislike him, but here's my point. With our hitting woes of late (3weeks), put the same lineup on the field for 1 week. We have had Punto 1st, 9th 2nd, Stewart 1st 3rd, Mauer 2nd 4th, Morneu 4th 7th, get my drift. Stick with a lineup for a week and get some consistancy. This joggling of the lineup is very frustrating for me. I would imagine it's pretty frustrating for the players as well when they look at the card.

He's always been that way and it's worked in the past, I just think he's got so many issues in the infield this year, besides that Morneau had been as cold as ice.... Jones is streaky, Hunter the same... know what I mean.

Looking back to how the Timberwolves handled their situation, I almost wouldn't be suprised to see Gardy get the hook if the Twins miss the playoffs. Baseball drafts aren't like a football or basketball draft. So if they miss the playoffs it isn't like they are gaining anything. I like Gardy alot though but maybe he isn't tough enough on his players. But I would rather have Gardy and Flip coaching our teams just because I like how they only keep the good natured players.

With the best farm system in the whole league, and we dont trade out top farm system players, we should be doing good. I just think we lack trading. Within the last year or 2. We have only got Stewart and Nathan. And they turned out very good for us.

Gardy's not going to get the hook, their record's about the same as last year. They turned over pretty much the whole infield. Overall the pitching staff has pitched well, but Santana was unstoppable the 2nd half last year, which pretty much pushed us over the hump. He's been solid this year, but still mortal. We had two All-Star's & they were both pitchers. We really didn't have a hitter other than possibly Hunter, more for his defense than his bat, that was even in consideration. These guys are solid Major Leaguers, but they're not stars. Mauer likely will be if he stays healthy, Mourneau maybe... There's been a lot of guys in baseball history with a ton of power that couldn't make contact very consistently, just think of Bye Bye Balboni for one.

Up to the point that I lost interest, Gardy's poor decisions cost the Twins a legit six games. Gardy is a career coach, nothing more. When he gets the hook he'll never get a head job again.

Agreed on that. The Twins just blew all chances of competing this year and I think alot of the players have to be alittle mad at that. Why are they going in there everyday trying their hardest when the managers and owners dont care. Everyone knew the Twins had to make a move to start making a push. I think they lost alot of fans over this last week or 2, for the rest of the season.

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
