Yankee series

Recommended Posts

Trainman

Well here comes the dreaded series at NYY. We're going in with the Silva-Baker-Garza rotation. Any thoughts? I see us going 1-2 unless our bats wake up.

well we wont be facing any of their aces either so maybe a high run series, hopefully the twins come out with a win or 2.

Garza had a good start on tuesday maybe he will look just as good, if we can get some run support

this could be a possible play-off matchup so this series could make or break the confidence for the twins

With the pitching we have going this series, I'll be happy with one of three. Silva is an automatic loss and either Garza or Baker will keep us within 3 runs into the 6th one game.

We WILL have to score bunches of runs to win any games this series though.

It would be good to win some to gain confidence, but the team that is going into Yankee stadium now, is not the same team that the Yankees would see in the playoffs.

Radke, Liriano, and Castillo are out. Those are three very important pieces to our team.

You forgot to mix Ernesto into the rotation. There could be a return trip to NY on the 18th for makeup game(s).

I think we need to take 2 out of 3 in this series.

I think Silva will be the downfall for this team... his losses are adding up fast!! Wait, I am one person who hates being super negative on somebody, but I'll say Silva won't win another game all year, he is absolute horse dung right now! Anybody disagree? frown.giffrown.gifcrazy.gif

I think this series is going to be painful to watch. But if you are a diehad Twins fan this year you have to watch these games and then you will enjoy when they start putting pitching an hitting and Fielding back together again. To add more problems Radke has a stress fracture in his shoulder? 2-3weeks of no throwing. I think we might have seen the last of Brad. I would give him some applause for his effort the 2nd half of the season, can't say he didn't give it his all and then some.

Twins lose 8-1. Glad we didn't waste any runs on Silva. Let's hope they give Baker and Garza a chance this weekend.

Anybody listen to the FSN post game deal? Coomer said "You really have to tip your hat to the Twins-they never gave up, and scored a run in the ninth inning." Huh? No, with a total of 4 hits and 3 errors, tonight is hardly the night to "tip your cap" to the boys. They looked really nervous and pressured out there, IMO. We really need to get a win out of this series, especially after the yawners we played against K.C.

Twins win 6-1 today. Baker pitched pretty well. Got our win. Let's see if rookie Garza can pull-off a series win!

P.S. Garza's ERA is below 3.0 if you subtract off his first start.

Yeah-and for the second outing in a row- he was quoted in the Strib saying "I was happy with the way I pitched". Say what? 4 innings-9hits-4 or 5 runs-2 dingers, and he thinks it was a good outing? Unbelievable. Too much Dos Equis, I am afraid...

      Hi I don;t know really if there is a list or not? Hmmmmm. good question? How do ya find out? I do know House boats tie up n camp to some of the smaller ones. So guessing fair game for campers also?? Fast simple way to find out those islands n locals might be to call Vermilion Houseboats n ask a few questions or drop by with a load Hoogies.  That 4 sure get some answers... KEEP OUT, PRIVIATE PROPERTY signs, Boat Lifts, docks ~ cabins n Reputation and of course GUNS n DOGS take care of the lite work for rest of us island owners. : ) 15 years ago Bonnie n I were going fishen an teasing Marauder crew of our hounds NO BOAT TODAY!  We jumped in boat on back dock, told them to have fun, be back soon. Driving around front of island to tease them an pick up front docks we see a boat pulling in to east side of island. I motor over an I ask if I can help them. Two dudes, kind of laurel n Hardy type couple. They say hey man, you a lake cop? Were on vacation an don't want no trouble, Go %$# @#$%^ an back off we are here 1st an need to take a dump. Before I say anything Bonnie says, well bud yer on private property an if you like staying healthy you should get back in yer boat really fast or you gonna know why in 10 seconds. : ) "Yeah well no one can own an island so just back off.....this aint nothing to do with you" That is when the four hounds turned corner of shed full blast in silent sneak attack mode.  : )Guess they were wrestling or chasing frogs or simply in shock that we did not let them in boat cause it took them about 1 minute to react to the voices. But maybe they were just waiting for right moment to GET IT ON! Becky arrived 1st....Buddy, then Barney an then Bailey....... One united big bark turned the dudes heads an you never seen two guys leap into a boat so fast just shy of four mouths full of teeth.... : ) Fat guy flew over the lil guy what seemed like 10 feet right into the bow of boat. Lil guys legs moving so fast to climb into boat an move it off show at same time all while screaming top of his lungs........HELP HELP HELP!!! Bonnie just says as I motor along to front docks to get hound pals.  "Talk to the hounds, this aint got nothing to do with us ~ remember" Fun couple of minutes! Later out on lake they apologized an asked info on places to camp an were sorry for being real DICKS. Told them to maybe got to DNR office in town an ask them about island camping as at the time I had no idea. Actually got to know them pretty good an laugh about this online every summer when they come to lake or when see them on lake once in a while. : ) Keep on rocken! T

      Yesterday there was open water, half way from the bridge to narrows used for netting and stripping.  It won't be long now.  The gates are still locked too.  
    • Hoey
      I was able to get my ice to boat equipment and gear cut-over completed.  Only problem was the electric golf cart was a no go.  Finally got it charged enough to move.  I just found out that the charger needed to be replaced.  Over $300 - ouch. There were many out chasing pike.  Those fishing on the reefs and in deeper water were not doing as well as those fishing in one foot of water below the ice.  Sounded like you need to be willing to run your auger into the sand.   I put new blades on my auger and went out to see how well they cut.  Well, I drilled down 2 feet in less than 3 seconds as the ice was on the hard side of slush.  I did not drill any further.  The hole filled immediately with water.   The pike chasers indicated they found little to no hard ice remaining.  That is encouraging since hearsay from the DNR indicated we need 4 weeks of 70 degree days with above freezing temps over night to get the ice out.   Come-on 70s!!!!

      For those interested in current conditions Red Door has a webcam and the north end typically goes the fastest or at least that is what it seems.  I'm all for a late ice out, similar to 2013 when the last really good year class of walleye were produced.   Kettle

      I know there are more than 300 islands on Lake Vermilion, but I was wondering if most of them are private, or could a guy throw some camping gear in his boat and stay overnight on one (obviously one that is uninhabited)? If that's possible, does anyone know of any resources that identify which ones are private and which ones would be available for something like that?    
    • leech~~
      Trying to stay on Topic from what I read. Ice out by opener.......so
    • delcecchi
      Sounds like the record of May 23 is looking safe for another year... 
    • BRULEDRIFTER
      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff
