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?

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
