yeah. Great game last night. He almost took it yard earlier in extra innings to end the game.

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.

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
