Detroit get better; when do Twins make a move?

Recommended Posts

IFallsRon

The Detroit Tigers' season ended just short of the team's first World Series title since 1984. But they think they just added a piece to the puzzle that could change all that next year.

The team has announced that they have acquired Yankees slugger Gary Sheffield and signed him to a two-year extension, keeping him under contract through the 2009 season.

The Tigers will become the seventh team Sheffield has played for in his career.

In exchange, the Yankees will receive three minor-league pitchers — Humberto Sanchez, Kevin Whelan and Anthony Claggett.

Tigers have to get better to even have a chance next year. Central Division will be tough!! Concern over the “extra baggage” Sheffield brings with him, but he did win in Florida with Leyland and Dembrowski. I’m upset about giving the Yankees three pitchers, but I guess we didn’t have much choice. Sanchez has been called our best starting prospect, but lately, he probably has moved behind Andrew Miller. Today, after the trade, I read that “his conditioning may not be what the team wants.” Never heard that before. We still need a big hitting first baseman.

Okay i'm not sold on the Tigers getting better! First off they just took on a huge headcase at a way inflated salary and mortgaged some of their future by giving up three pitchers that they held in high regards. If Sheffield hits 60 HR's per season and wins gold gloves it was a good trade, otherwise he's basically another Albert Belle type headcase... he's been on seven teams!!! That should tell us something.

All those award's doesn't mean sqwat, how about a World Series title is what matters the most. Morneau is going to cost the Twins alot of money they won't spent along with Mauer. Tigers got alot better with Sheffield, Twins should of went after him and plug him in the DH spot. Twins will always be the Twins, spend cheap. WE NEED PITCHING HELP...

Radke is done, even if he wanted to come back, he needs surgery, so is out. Unless he pulls a Clemons and un-retires in August after a long rest. He might get 2 months out of his shoulder.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

    • leech~~
