Underperforming Twins

1 post in this topic

all this bonser bashing got me thinking about some deserved criticism. so lets let it out!

1. Delmon Young 51 games played 0 HR 14 RBI 15 walks for an OBP of (barf) .327 (in 12 games the uber powerful casilla has 2 HR and 11 RBI) ps Matt Garza has found his groove. (side note, in no way am i saying delmon wont improve, he's too talented not too, and not even pushing 24)

2. Michael Cuddyer- taking the ugliest swings on the team. completely lost at the plate and should be able to hit 25 balls over the fence. currently on pace for 3 (i know small sample size) his routes in the outfield have gotten worse, but at least he has a cannon arm. i expect him to come around but nobody should ever expect him to repeat 2006

3. Jesse Crain- its tough having one pitch and it being a fastball with no movement. delmon young could hit a homerun off of him

4. Adam Everett- who would have though a worse player than punto existed? everett makes me want to watch punto. hes juan castro 2.0 a FORMER defensive wizard who cant hit. unfortunately we dont get to go back and get the good fielding non hitting everett.

5. Mike Lamb-seriously its time to let buscher play. lamb has brought nothing. if its between him struggling and the young buscher struggling i'd rather watch the kid.

6. Boof-just for your own amusement. 5 bad starts (2 god-awful included in bad) but 6, yes 6 Quality starts. but still management had us buying hype. i'm not giving up yet, but if it happens he would be absolutely stellar in the long relief role with that wicked curve. the fastball has been spotty at best. he has had 1 1/2 years of trouble locating it.

anyway there is my list. feel free to vent about anyone (boof venting in the "we hate boof" thread please.

    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
    • I'm starting to wonder about my wife, she bought me a suit lined with lead. Now she's trying to convince me it's for the xrays in the sun.?.
    • Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal.  #0148433  #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long.  I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each.  Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack.  I installed with an impact driver.  Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation.  For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.
