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.

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
