Rueben Sierra a Twinkie?

100% correct, he is a much better bat than what they have had in the past off the bench. Like they said in the Star & Trib this morning, you had Ryan, Tiffe or LeCroy to choose from, I would rather see a proven hitter in that spot. One question I have is why did they pass on signing Thomas for $500,000 and sign Sierra?? Both are injury prone??

Not a bad move!! He has been a good clutch hitter over the years. Looks like Gardy will have a few more options this year for the D.H position.

Mighta been nice if he had been a Twin on Oct 9, 2004. Rincon probably thinks so, too. But, could be past his prime, like most of the guys we seem to pick up. Price was right, tho. Hope he surprises me.

Was pitched around in last years playoffs. He's stayed in great shape and at 40 can still turn on any fastball in the league. He's younger than that guy that the Braves have got for this role. I think it's a great signing. I just hope the Twins have enough sense to keep Soriano up. He could be the best option for a lefty out of the pen. Gotta be better than Mulcheesearmholland. smile.gif

Maybe he meant he hopes we keep Soriano in the outfield up in Toronto instead of trying to trade for him? I guess I'm with you, I think he meant Liriano, since Soriano's right handed...

Julio Franco would be the guy the Braves had/have. He'll be 48 this August. They paid him one million last year.

Julio Franco and ricky henderson are two of the best players this leauge needs. they love the game so much, they refuse to stop playing. last I heard, henderson is still playing in minor leauges. I wish other players would follow there lead.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
