Only the Twinks...

24 posts in this topic

Could make the worst hitting team in Baseball look like the yanks. No shock that Perkins was the one to puke on his shoes today, but 1 inning? Come on guys, Its the A's!!!!!!!

Is it time to be sellers? What can we get for whom? I just don't know...

Just another frustrated fan....

Wait wait wait. 2 months ago we beat the White Sox by TWENTY. It was one game. Glad some of you guys aren't on a nuclear sub with their fingers on the button. ICBMs would be flying everywhere.

No doubt we have some serious needs to address, but don't jump off the bandwagon yet, still a long way to go. We have been worse off at same point in the year and came through. Remember- Royals vs Tigers, last game of the season???? Seen wierder things

I am not off the bandwagon by any means. Just frustrated with the last few games. It just seems that when it rains it poors and the twins forgot to pack the rain gear. HIT THE DARN BALL!!!!! Last I checked, that was your job. The 3 games with Oakland should have been gimmies and we botched 'em. Not only that, but admit to having a bad day. Everytime we have a pitcher (perkins especialy) throw batting practice they grab the arm/elbow/sholder and claim an injury. THROW THE DARN BALL!!!!! That is your J O B!!!! wink

Now we get the angel's, the best team in baseball, to cap off the roady.

I just don't want to look back on this week as the spot we took the hard left turn.

With the deadline comming sooner than later and other teams in the devision trying to work out big deals to make themselves better you have to wonder what we are doing? From the sounds of it we have nothing going or in the works. With the blaring needs we have confusedconfusedconfused

Gardy should have soaked Perkins today with the up coming series with the angels. You pitch that bad, save the pen and take your lumps.

No such thing as gimmies in Baseball the worst teams in the league win 60 games or 40 percent of their games..K?

On a side note the Boston Red Sox have lost 5 straight and have scored 8 runs in those games...

It's baseball guys!

Someone on ESPN just 2 weeks ago predicted that the Rays would get the Wild Card and either the Yanks or the Red Sox will win division and the other team be odd man out, he might be right

Lke Pier says, don't worry, its only a loss.

Exactly another west coast collapse. Just like last year when you went through this same old spiel and gave up on the Twins!

Except you were WRONG last year and we ended up with the best record in the Division along with the Sox who we also had the edge in the season series 10-8. grin

Looks like the team feel apart in the 6-5 loss. Seems everyone had a hand in this loss. This was a pitiful loss.

They will be ok though.

We can all cheer as hard as we want but it does not help.

Agreed, that will only hurt the Twins more without having anything good enough to bring up.

Rough rough road trip, looks like Slowey is shut down for the season, according to LaVelle at least. That leaves there only legit starting pitcher is Swarziak (sp?)

Wow..kinda rough...we have 30% of out remaining games against over .500 teams, meanwhile Detroit and Chicago have over half their games against over .500 teams, and Detroit still has games left against NY and Bos. It ain't over yet. The big lady is still sitting in her seat. She hasn't even started to clear the throat. shocked

A ton of time left and we're only 4 out, I'll take that. Just hope we win the division, and then hope we are the hot team entering the playoffs. The boys are still entertaining, a little frustrating, but entertaining. It's the only reality TV I watch these days. wink

Relax boys and girls, every team goes through a rough stretch, and I mean EVERY TEAM. Boy I am not hearing anyone degrading Mauer, now that he has come down to earth. I mean come on his batting average has dropped 35 points. That is why they play 162 games or 163 if you are so unlucky.

We are 4 games out and looking for help. Something will pop this week for all you (we need some players to help make it to the playoffs) gig. How soon we forget the 87 Twins. people were dead wrong all year and then guess what happened.

PETER PETER POSITIVE OUT HERE. not negative nellies.

two things about 87 that we had in our favor that we really don't right now is 1) now a team needs to win 3 series instead of just 2 series to be champs and 2) we don't have a frank viola or a bert blyleven to carry them through the playoffs.

on the positive side, the cardinals pulled of a somewhat similar to our 87 run just a couple years ago where they clearly were not the best team during the season but everything clicked during playoffs so I guess nobody can say it's impossible.

    • HAs anyone here used this software to map your lakes?  Has anyone downloaded the lakes that are on the shared cloud?  I have a hook 7 and some of the lakes around have been mapped, it would be nice to download them and use that instead of the other map.
    •   Is that the work around garmin uses to avoid licensing the Lowrance patent?    Or was the patent on something different?
    • I was on private land that I have shot 8 birds in 10 seasons.Over 300 acres of prime land by Caledonia but none in our group of 4 scored this year. Just makes me more excited for next year. Might try the last season but will probably be into fishing by that time. Good Luck to All.....
    • Love the zoom horny toads. Man they can have some vicious blowups. Im a huge fan of buzzbaits so to be able to use this frog like a buzzbait in some thick weeds is awesome.
    • Lilacs are really leafing out here in central MN.  On my few walks through the woods, the mushrooms have been few and far between: No more scarlet cups, no pheasant backs, no oysters. I haven't went to my morel spots because there's no hurry and I don't want to trample them, but I doubt they're up very far around here if the pheasant backs haven't even fruited. I'll be back out today before the rain checking on things, though. 
    •   Just stating the facts as they stand Bear.  You listen or read at all what the national NHL analysts are saying/writing about the Wild's present/recent past/future?  I've said before I love your postivity and I'm glad too that MN has an NHL team. Spin is required to hide the facts, spin is needed to turn what is not good and make it sound good, spin is needed to make it sound like you are doing your job well when in fact we are no closer than we were 3-4 years ago.  Seriously....any chump could have improved the team from what it was when Fletch took over...you and I could have done that. If you just look inside the box, wow we are much improved; but if you look outside the box and compare yourself to the rest of the league you realize we really have not climbed the ladder very much...16th, 15th, 14th, 13th, 12th, 11th, 10th in the NHL does not cut it for me...for you it does and thus our differences and our ability to argue/discuss this back and forth.
    • Your best angle of attack should come like this: Do you need to control your trolling motor with your sonar? if so you have 2 choices. Lowrance uses motor guide and H-bird goes with Minnkota. If that is not a requirement than the field is wide open. IMO don't go with a screen smaller than 9" with side imaging there is so much detail that its hard to see on a 7" screen. I'd stay away from garmin or any unit that doesn't have a true down scan ducer that uses software to produce a down scan image there is just too much stuff lost without it.   
    • It's a pop or in my case an ice tea bottle with several 1/8" holes near the bottom of the bottle.  I then roll up paper towels and get as many as I can stacked inside the bottle.  When I need to cough I unscrew the top and cough into it.  It definitely softens then noise to more of a rush of air sound.
    • I use the standard frogs (non-Popping) as i feel i can always pop a non-popping.  I do like to throw into cover and hit those pockets and open area's ... there is times when walking it really makes a big difference on strikes.  Can't wait for the season!!  i was just experimenting with the frogs and not bass fishing yet.   We will keep in touch and see how ya all are doing with the frogs this summer.  I am intrigued also with the Zoom Horny toad, ready to try those also.   Cret
    • What spin is needed? We lost, this happens all the time in the playoffs, that is why they play the games. Our very own team has bounced two division leaders in the past 4 years, are we going to give them credit for those series wins or just completely focus on the negative and whine about everything. There are plenty of positives to take away from this season, really there is a ton to be excited about going forward if you don't solely focus on all thing negative.
