Morneau

79 posts in this topic

Well, looking back at the first 3 pages of threads we have a Mauer, a Kubel, a Crede, a Cuddyer, a Delmon Young, a Baker, a Gomez, a Harris, and a (cough) Crain thread. I can't believe there isn't a fresh Morneau thread. This guy is on fire this year, and I have to say if it wasn't for the M and M boys, well, this team would be kind've boring. Since a few of us guessed how many homeruns Mauer will have at the end of the year, I figured we could guess for Morneau as well. He is currently second in the league with 12 homeruns, hitting .324 with 32 RBIs. At the rate he is going, he is projected to hit .324, 51 homeruns, and 136 RBIs. I'll guess 33 homeruns, the same as his jersey number. Over/Under 35 HR?

What do you guys think? Maybe another MVP season if the Twins can get it together and make the playoffs?

At the rate he's going 40 seems easy.

Isn't it a sickening thought that Morneau and Mauer both might end up in pinstripes someday....

Yeah, but keeping in tune with some of the other threads on here, wouldnt it be nice if Morneau got a homer every time? I mean really, he gets out more than he gets a hit. I wish he would not fly out as often as he does and he strikes out more than he walks. Just yesterday for example, he struck out LOOKING. Didnt even try and hit it. What the twins need is a first basement who never gets out. take that Negative Nellies!

Having said all that, Morny is prolly my favorite player with a very slight edge over Mauer.

kinda hard to do in baseball when you play 150+ games and bat 600+ times smile

I know that, I was poking fun at the other threads where people are criticizing Mauer and Crede.

Now look at Morny. He was up 5 times last nite and only got 4 hits. Not one of them was a homer either. What a bum!

struck out swinging...

Kind of hard to call those swings... all 3 of them gringringrin

bad at bat for an example, but I agree he is stud. If the Twins make the playoffs, he'll get serious consideration for MVP if his numbers hold steady. He did fade pretty bad last year. Both Morneau and Mauer are a couple of the best.

We should consider ourselves very lucky, not only do we have 2 of the top 10 players in baseball (Mauer and Morneau), we have two of the top ten nice guys in baseball.

I have a feeling these two will be around for quite a while in a Twins uni.

Mauer 31 HR

Mourneau 43 HR

Wow, 31 Hr's for Mauer?? Now that's a call!!!

His body is maturing, and there's some new found strength there. That combined with his sweet swing, will only lead to more homers. His homers so far this year, at least most of them, have been almost non-intentional ones. Those would have been fly outs last year. I really think Mauer should choose one at bat a game to swing for the fences. It's something that Mourneau seems to be doing these days.

I think it is very possible Mauer will hit 20-30 hr's this season at the rate he's going.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
