Why no Twins' interest in Washburn?

17 posts in this topic

Supposedly we were interested in Jarrod Washburn last year, but we aren't this year? You can't dispute the fact that our starting rotation leaves a lot to be desired.... I just don't understand why there isn't any talk about him. Anyone else think he would make sense for us???

they are looking at him but so are other teams and we don't want to give up what other teams are supposedly willing to part with.....

Too much salary for what you're getting.

Thats typically what the Twins offer, very little for other players and a ton for theirs.

I guess thats why we never see any trades.

Salary and our future 3rd baseman.

Anyway sounds like the trade is in limbo due to medical concerns about his knee.

IF Valencia is what Seattle wants, then they can keep Washburn. We haven't had a good 3rd baseman in a LONNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGG time! Hopefully he will be as good as advertised. I like Crede and everything, but .230 and always dinged doesn't really do it for me, even though his glove is awesome and he'll hit some HR's.

After days of debate, the Seattle Mariners have traded left-handed pitcher Jarrod Washburn to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for left-hander Luke French and minor-league prospect Mauricio Robles

Oh OH that is not good. Any other team fine, but not them.

Twins better do something, or there will be some bashing.

Kurkjian just said its basically a loaner trade- the Mariners will probably sign Washburn after the season. Weird

We could win the World Seires again and the Bashing would continue. and thats every fans right to do... so I'm told!

There is a reach right there. The Twins could win the rest of there games and someone would complain.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
