Ayala Gone

21 posts in this topic

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins will call up right-hander Bobby Keppel from Triple-A Rochester in time for Tuesday night's game in Milwaukee.

The Twins said Monday that Keppel would take the roster spot of right-hander Luis Ayala.

Ayala is being designated for assignment. In 28 games this season he has a 1-2 record and 4.18 ERA.

I seen a woman at the game yesterday with an Ayala jersey on. Can you imagine- guys like Mauer, Morneau, Crede, Nathan and a few others and she picked an Ayala jersey.

It was probably on sale at the 99 cent store for 96 cents!

I've seen women at the games who could probably throw strikes ... unlike the scrubs the Twins have been sending back to the home for failed pitchers.

Probably his Mom.

I agree. I guess it pays to be a lefty, no matter how you pitch.

Probably his Mom.

Nope, woman with husband and young kids. Probably a year or so older than Ayala himself.

Did you hear last night that he went into Gardy's office and said he wanted to be the 8th inning guy? Gardy told him he couldn't get any outs in the 5th and 6th, what makes you think you can get any in the 8th?

I'd have laughed right in his face.

Its hard to trade a guy who thinks he should be the 8th inning guy while at the same time he can't get anyone out.

Whats the going rate for a set up guy who blows the lead everytime he is handed the ball?

The going rate? Oakland will give us Craig Breslow and two Rosin bags for him.

Shoulda kept that Aussie that Tampa has now- Tampa is making us look like a bunch of idiots.

Bartlett, Garza and that Australian guy have done good since they left here. I am praying when that new stadium opens people will WANT to play here, and not play here because they have no choice.

PA said is best the other day- we live in a place where just making the playoffs means success to the fans.

We should demand more out of our sports teams here, but once we do that they move.

Probably his sister, or some kind of blood relative.

The Twins sent Henn down and recalled Duensing yesterday. Lets see how that goes.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
