Hi Ho Silva and a Cuddyer Brain Fart !

Recommended Posts

Windy City Walleye Hunter

Your favorite whipping boy did OK today in my book. Thanks to Cuddyer for that hilarios gaff on third base. I don't know if anybody picked up on it but as Cuddyer was crossing the plate, thinking that there were two outs, did you notice AJ start walking to his dugout? He didn't want to tip Cuddyer to the fact that there was only one out and it worked as Cuddyer didn't realize his goof until it was too late. And how bout Javy with 7 strong innings???

So did Reyes give up more runs today than all of last year?

Looks like the man with one leg shorter than the other has been hitting the buffet line rather than the weight room in the off season.

Then Big Bad Bobby Jenks finishes things off against the heart of the Twinks line-up.

GOOSE EGGS!!!

Let the games begin! 1-Love Pale Hose.

You give AJ to much credit , he probably thought the same as Cuddy . Twins played poorly today and that gave the W-Sox a win . Shouldn't be enough to get the trash talk started , should it ?

Unfortunately I can back you up on Reyes. My less than ideal seats at the dome had me ten feet from Reyes as he warmed up in the pen. He's definitely been getting a second helping of taters. Neshek looked like the bat boy standing near him. smile.gif

I love Cuddy....but to say AJ was "decoying" him for the out is rediculous. AJ is as guilty as Cuddy!

I'll have to eat my words as I didnt think Silva could pitch a better game anymore. Chomp, Chomp. Crow never did taste well.

As far as AJ goes, he would like us to believe he knew there was only one out. Chicago can still have him.

Silvas performance was nice but I am not anywhere near ready to say he is "back". I was surprised more than encouraged. Lets see what his stats are by mid-May.. Jury is still out on this guy, IMO.

I am a die-hard Twins fan...but lets not get too excited about his performance today. He flirted with danger quite a bit. I think the weather hurt the hitters more than the pitchers and that made Silva look OK. I hope I am wrong, but I doubt that Silva will make it to Memorial Day as a Twins big league starter..

Cuddy will only amke that mistake once this year so I am glad it happened early in the year..

Every decent game Silva pitches gives the Twins time to prepare a younger pitcher. All Silva has to do is keep the Twins in the game so the offense can get it done. He is the #5 pitcher in my mind, and giving you a chance is all you usually get from the #5. Almost all teams have a Silva in their rotation.

"No game break down from Windy City Walleye Guy Today?"

I got him covered on the wrap today. The AL MVP drives in the batting champ. Yohaaaaaaaaan continues to own the Sox. They go about two hours without a hit. Then AJ chokes, game over. Did I miss anything Windy? grin.gif

Windy probably won't comment, he only likes to spout off when his teams are winning; he gets pretty quiet when they lose.

Sorry for the delay in posting. I had something to do today. Hosting the entire family for Easter din din. I think you guys did miss one thing, our rookie was every bit as good as YO-Han today. One bad pitch to Morneau that I would expect a MVP to hit and that was the difference. I'll take that performance from our 5th starter against the Twinks ace every day and twice on Sunday. We sent up our 4th and 5th starters while you trotted out your 1 and 2 (maybe 3). The way I sees it is that we aced you guys 3-0 and you beat us 3-1 seems like we are up a run??? Happy Easter to all you FM'ers we didn't lay any "Easter Eggs" but the Twinks did yesterday, OOOOOOOHHH Yea!

Nice spin. Let me try. The Sox were one swing away from being shut out today. Nobody pitches every bit as good as YO. Danks did pitch very well though. I'll give you that Windy.

Windy Silva is far from our 2 or 3rd starter, he is more like our 5th starter. Every game he pitches for the next month or so is an audition for him. If he starts to struggle they will yank him and bring up one of the young guns. That being said your young guy did pitch really well with the exception of the 4th inning. Also when Crain comes in I have come to expect him to give up at least one long ball, he go right after the hitters and that is bound to happen when you throw as many fastballs as he does.

Windy,

#2 - Boof

#3 - Ortiz

#4/#5 are pretty interchangable between Silva and Ponson. Granted Silva pitched great on Saturday, but I'm not convinced its the Silva we will continue to see. It would not surprise me to see both Silva and Ponson out of the rotation come second half of the season.

Heck if Ponson doesn't show any better than last night he won't make it to the All-Star break.

      it actually was renamed from my understanding, but its easier for me to go with the old name.. i definitely would want to head out there. Thanks wanderer for the feedback. might've been the push i needed to go wet the lines next week.

      Getanet, Most folks the first week or so did very well on the west end this year. It is a huge area with a lot of structure options. There are weed beds, sand flats, rubble shorelines, and creek inlets, just to name a few.The 5-15ft depths brought a lot of fish too big to keep. The keepers were in the 15-25ft range.  Evening movements can bring all sizes of fish shallow. This year, minnows were definitely the bait of choice. It's all about location, location, location. In general the best approach is to run and gun. Stay no more than 10-15 minutes in a spot, and then move to then next.  If the fish are there, they  are generally active. Stick with, and sooner or later, you'll get rewarded.  VNP really is an amazing place.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.
    • MN BassFisher
      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.
    • MikeG3Boat
      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff
    • imhatz
      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike
