Pretty happy so far with this move. Hopefully this is the start of his bat waking up. The glove will always be there for Credes!

That game is exactly what we brought him in for, all the negative nancies that have been all over him thus far, will be on the bandwagon soon

He has been FAR from good, come on... I watched the game last night yes it was a great way to end, but the guy is hitting .220 ish...Not that he has ever hit for a high avg but he has some pretty dang good talent around him right now. Lets face it he falls into the same mold as Jay Buhner, Rob Deer (not as many K's), and dare I say Tom Brunansky!

That would be nice, I wish we would have rolled the dice right away and offered a deal longterm and hope to work out a Twins deal. Now, if he puts up numbers again and stays healthy, we just got out-bidded.

I think Crede gives us a solid 3rd bag and is a below 300 avg but can give you 20+hrs and that is needed in our line-up

Lets not get crazy after one long over due clutch hit. The suggestion of a long term contract is a bit of an over-reaction to say the least.

Next thing ya know, people will be complaining about Crede not being worth $X, million. Well at least then, Cuddy will be left alone. crazy

Pier, I am just saying we could have got him cheap. If he has an average year for him and stays healthy, then he is goin to see green.

He just had another clutch hit in the bottom of the 7th today.

If he continues to go 1-3 or 1-4 but the hits come at clutch times with runners in scoring position I'm fine with him. He's better then anything else we've been running out at 3rd the last few years.

I am not getting crazy....I already am...but that is besides the point.....the guy is a good 3 bag and has a lively stick.....what other options do we have and how long have we been looking for a good 3 bag and a little more power in the line-up?? I think he fills both voids for our ball club

I find this conversation funny. Problem with Crede is he doesnt hit for a high enough average. problem with Mauer on another thread is he doesnt have enough power. Apparently, unless we field an entire team of Morneau's and Pujol's, we will suck. Guys, you only have a handful of players IN ALL OF BASEBALL that can hit for power AND average.

My take: Mauer is as good as you are gonna get at catcher. Enjoy him for what he is. Crede is the best 3B since Koskie. Enjoy not having a guy over there on pace for a 2 or 3 homer season like we had the last few years.

With some of these guys, the Twins could be in 1st place by 20 games and be nr 1 in all categories, and they would find something to complain about!! shockedshockedshocked

the bullpen is still there, so, no we dont have to FIND something to complain about. and after reading the sentence I just typed that leaves the Twins out for being up by 20 games. they have the stick potential and starting hurlers, but the pen is horrible (joe nathan, your excused from all bullpen talk!)

Twins would be very wise to extend and sign Crede to a multi-year contract. Highly incentivized if they could -- otherwise just take a chance on him staying healthy. He's a solid player who seems to fit into what the Twins have been building on for a long time.

Man it's nice to see him hitting home runs for us, instead of against us. Now we just need to get some guys on base when He comes to the plate.

    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.  
    • Excellent.  Nicely done.
    • You got it, Borch!  I was disappointed with how the season ended, but you're definitely right!  I also learned a trick this year- cards!  Morgan really enjoyed playing cards with me in the blind.  It was a good way to pass the time and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  We had a great season together and enjoyed it a ton!     That last encounter we had was really something!  I'm convinced the worst thing birds can do to a bowhunter is to come in to the deeks is stand there and stare.  I'd rather they hung up and didn't come in or did pretty much anything but that.  It makes it virtually impossible to get a bow drawn!  The turkey was at about 5 yards, because I knew we I needed one close for Morgan.  However, at five yards and staring directly in the direction of the blind, she was smart to not try to draw.  That dang bird stood there for two full minutes and didn't move a muscle.  Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and at one point told me "I was so excited and my heart was pounding so hard I thought I might die!"     It would have been a slam dunk with her crossbow, but she wanted to get one with a vertical bow.  I'm proud of her for sticking with it and she said "I'm just fine with not shooting one, Dad."  I'm glad she's ok with that.  I wish I was more ok with it...  but, that's hunting!  
    • Sounds like he is going to bring "fire" to the team haha.  Hoping he can come up with something to do with all the aging players who aren't living up to their contracts.     Also heard that Coyle played the last 2 months with torn ligaments in his wrists.  Going in for surgery.  Kind of an eye opener really, Coyle with torn wrist ligaments is better than anything they could've moved up that is healthy?  Uh oh....
    • Hey, it's all good. Morgan and you spending time together in the outdoors and getting a close encounter is what it's all about.     Sometimes the birds win and we simply run out of time.
