Yeah- and on ESPN tonight they had a graphic of the so-called best candidates for MVP-and no, Morneau was not on the screen It was (you guessed it, Jeter) and Papi. I can see Papi, but that will fade probably as the Sox are sinking out of the playoff pic. But I don't get how they can not even mention Morneau. Jeter is overrated, IMO. No way he has carried the Yanks like Morneau has us this year. I don't care if he is in the big apple or not. No comparison.

I hear your passion for Justin for MVP. But I have to say, Cuddy may be the twins MVP. Only becuz nobody expected a season like this from him. Santana is the MVP including pitchers.

Sorry guys, Jeter has it in the bag. He is in the biggest market and on the East coast. Morneau will split votes with Santana and that leaves Jeter to win it. The only way he can loose it now is if Chicago wins the devision, then Dye has a great shot at it, or if Santana does not give up another run for the rest of the year. friendly

I disagree, I can see Jeter not winning as all the sportwritters that vote on this don't live in NY and tend to bias RBI guys.

If Jeter was a shortstop for the Twins he wouldnt be mentioned either.

Its gonna be the east coast bias like always.

If Jeter wins it over Dye or Morneau I will be pretty upset. Jeter just has a big market and a big name behind him and that is usually all it takes.

Morneau should be MVP, when he started hitting the Twins started winning.

I'd be very surprised if anyone other than Jeter wins it. He probably gets good pitches because A-Rod bats behind him, but that's never hindered voters in the past. Jeter may win the batting title, and he may put up 100+ RBI this year too (91 right now). East coast bias and he's been a consistent player for a decade now.

I still think Morneau or Dye should win it, just saying I'd be surprised if Jeter doesn't.

He's a solid MVP candidate and there is no question who has carried our team offensively this season. It has been #1 Justin Morneau, and #2 Michael Cuddyer. These guys are # 1 and 2 in two-out RBI's. A stat that wasn't mentioned in that article that should have been. Those are all clutch hits.

Joe Mauer may garner some votes too, so will Santana.

Honestly, I don't think you want Morneau to win the MVP. Only for the fact that he will cost a ton if he does. Either way, the Twins have to lock this guy up forever. He is a Harmon Killebrew type player for this team. A superstar and stud hitter that will anchor our lineup until he retires.

My opinion....if Jeter wins the batting title, he'll get the MVP. It's the name, it's the team, it's the city. If Jeter doesn't win the batting title, then I believe the MVP is up in the air.

If the Twins for whatever reason don't make the playoffs, Justin will not win the MVP. Only way I see Justin winning the MVP is if the Twins make the playoffs and Jeter does not win the batting title. I think Justin should win it no matter what happens though.

Morneau strengthed his case last night against Ortiz, he looked like the better hitter.

5 hits on the night, an RBI, 2 runs scored and two doubles. Raised his average to .326. This guy is solid and no question an MVP.

He doesn't have the HR totals, but the RBI's he is gonna catch Ortiz and it might happen this series. Also, his average puts him 5th and he could very easily be third by the end of the week.

Peter Gammons is coming back tonight and will be reporting from Fenway. I'll be interested to hear what he has to say about Morneau vs. Ortiz for the MVP. He is as big a Boston backer as there is, but it is hard to ignore what Justin has done this year. Morneau also plays the field.

Ortiz's line last night - 0-5 with 3 K's. We have handled him great all year long.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
