Pudge

12 posts in this topic

Once again, Pudge was moved in a deal involving little or nothing. Can't believe the Twins have never asked about him. He could DH on a daily basis, and give Mauer a break once or twice a week. He still has 20+ HR possibility and is a .300 hitter as well. Tell me he is worse than Redmond

Anyone who say's they wouldn't want Pudge on their team is a dope. But you said "...moved for LITTLE OR NOTHING..." The problem is we had NOTHING to offer.

the glaring holes on our team are in the pitching staff and infield. not sure that pudge would make the team that much better.

Redmond is a company and Gardy guy and they're not going to mess that up. He'll be a coach in the system next year and the Twins will bring the kid north to be backup.

There is that about him. He is also the closest thing to a "club house guy" that we've got right now.

Redmond only has a job yet because he gets Gardy his coffee twice a day!! Punto has his job yet... Not sure why??

Pudge would have been a nice pick-up about three weeks ago... especially at the price he brought.

I don't know. Guy is hitting around .250 and hasn't hit 20 homeruns since 2001 ... in fact, he hasn't really gotten close since then. Not to mention the fact that he was named in the Mitchell Report, and he could very well be the next steroid story. Plus, I wouldn't call his price all that slim. The Rangers gave up a pretty solid pitching prospect.

so you gonna put kubel on the bench so pudge can dh??? If they were to replace redmond (which I think they should have) we already have a catcher in the minors that can play at this level. I know he's not great defensively but redmond isn't all that good anymore either due to his age.

No I would put Cuddyer/Span in center, Cuddyer/Span in right and Young/Kubel in left. Kubel isn't the DH on an everyday basis, so what difference does bringing Pudge in make?

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
