......and Garza isnt ready yet?

Recommended Posts

floating minnow

Napa,

Please read Willys post where he states I took the words out of Terry Ryans mouth. Is that me trying to start an argument?

Floating Minnow, do you think it is possible they you guys are talking about 2 different quotes made by the same person? I am fairly certain I have heard the same the Willy did about Garza having 4 pitches that are major league quality but he relies on the fast ball to much.

I did some looking, this is one quote from a coach in AAA about Garza

Quote:

"This guy can control the strike zone. He can throw a breaking ball when he's behind in a count. He mixes in his changeups, slider, but when his game is on the line -- when it was his win or loss on the line with runners on out there -- he's able to spot that fastball at 97 miles an hour and put it where he wants it."


So people think he has 4 pitches that he can use effectively. He just doesn't mix them up which is what we have all been hearing.

I think you mis-understood me. I was saying that the words out of TR's mouth were that he had 4 pitches. Not saying you said that. Terry said that himself during an interview the other day.

As far as playing baseball, I have played my share and know how it works. That's the reason he isn't up here, because he isn't using those pitches and the Twins would like to see him mix and match a little more even if it means him giving up some hits, runs, or losing a game.

Willy,

If I misunderstood you then I have to say I'm sorry.

I still think we will not know if he has any effective pitches until he gets up with the Twins and TR never rushes pitchers in fear of them losing their confidence if things do not go well.Kyle Loshe has some good pitches but he now pitches in fear of what might happen.

No big deal.

I agree that until he uses those pitches in the major leagues, then all it is would be a scout's guess.

We will know for sure when he gets up here. Maybe they shouldn't rush him, but I think if they want to stay in this race then they have no other choice.

I'm off for a day and you guys go nuts on the Twins.. tongue.gif I've heard the guys on the radio quote people from the Twins as saying "Garza HAS four effective pitches" he just doesn't use them all enough, mainly fastballs and that will get him killed up here. There is no doubt in my mind that Garza will be called up soon enough.

Garza is in love with his fastball and uses it to get people out in AAA. He shakes off the catcher a lot and that upsets the brass.

He need to pitch like he is in the show -- that's what they want from him.

The catcher in AAA needs to pull a scene from the movie Major League and tell the batter whats coming and TATER BALL!! Remember that, I think they called him wild thing or maybe it was Bull Durham... I'm forgetful. tongue.gif

I am with you, Buzz. That would be the way to wake him up.

The post was meant to be about us brining guys like baker and bonser up to pitch, yet saying Garza isnt ready....when we all know full well that Garza could destroy both of these scrubs put together.

And was I the only one that read the nice little write-up about Garza in this weeks (joe mauer cover boy) Sports Illustrated?

I really don't know that much about Garza--- but if his line is what Buzz said it is--- I'd give him another few starts at AAA, and if the Twins are in a pinch for a 4th or 5th starter and still in the hunt or ahead in the WC,, bring him up. Other wise-- the Twins will be OK with the current 4 man rotation. Those days off are real nice and prevent us from using a 5th starter.

      Nice work gents! Looks like the back-end of summer bite is heating up. Love this time of year as we head into Sept. How is the water level with all the storms passing through? Has looked rainy lately. Last I was up was early July after that 8" rain storm and the levels were back up to normal after being low in June.

      Good luck fishing! Im also fond of fly fishing. I find it easier to fish when you have the best fly fishing rods. If youre looking to upgrade your rod, you can check here.

      Seven specie day today.  Live bait not required!  Couple of things of note...   I caught eight nice crappies this morning on a deep rock reef, along with a bunch of plump gills. Seems odd, but I’ll take it.  This afternoon, I targeted ciscos and whitefish out over the basin. Success!  Was happy since I now know whitefish can be targeted year round, not just thru the ice.  I also enjoyed the challenge of a different species that not many folks know about.  Was a unique and fun experience.  By the way, everything I caught was immediately released.

      Congratulations on your retirement bfisherman11! I hope you enjoy every moment of it!

      Our week (7/25-8/1) wasn't greatly productive fish wise but I could never really get a pattern to work. I usually use a lindy rig with a half crawler. When we did try jig/minnow not much either. The start of the week the wind was tough to hold on a spot. Later we had no wind and high temps. I marked some surface temps that were like 78 deg, that's pretty warm.   I went down to Brule narrows one day, never been before. Picked a reef and caught a 19" eye pretty quick and then boat control got to be an issue.   Might try a week in Sept once I am retired (Friday is my last day) but I sure miss the ability to fish north of the border.   Bill

      Thanks Jim. I value all opinions, because I really don't want to spend the cash on a subpar product that makes my life worse!

      What is the best time of year for brookies. I've tried spring but waters too cold, summer, bugs bad but fishing good. Never tried fall but I am think that might be the ticket. Usually use worms but sometimes spinner. Is there a special trick to keep the chubs away? Lots of them in my creek.

      Good luck with your toilet. LOL Let me know how it works after a weekend when the kids and grandkids are there using it? Not sure how the Biolet works, we had a top of the line Sun Mar. There is a tray in the bottom of the unit that is supposed to hold the extra urine that goes through the compost material. After a weekend with 5 females, and 3 males using it that tray would be full to overflowing. Wouldn't have been a problem if the girls would have cleaned it out. They didn't, I had to. The whole bottom of that unit would have an inch of urine in there, that is GROSS!   Oh yea, there's an overflow tube on the Sun Mar. This would fill up with the fine compost material, and plug up, now where do you think the overflow goes? And yes, I had 2 fans in my exhaust pipe, no it didn't help it dry out any faster, but they did help keep the smell down. The only thing I can say about ours is that there are plenty of people out there that wanted to buy it when we were done using it. They do keep a good value, especially up here. If I was you I'd check out more than one brand, and one user. I'm guessin if you posted a question on facebook, you might get a variety of user opinions. We hated ours, maybe you'll love yours. I'll just leave this topic alone, and wish you good luck. lol Jim

      We might as well re-title this thread "Interesting Things To Learn On Vermilion." Thanks for enlightening me.
