BOOF!

10 posts in this topic

Wow, did Boof have an impressive relief appearance last night. Maybe (hopefully) he found his spot with the team. I know it's only one appearance, but remember how we kept at it with Hawkins for years untill they tried him as a set up guy? Obviously since he is out of options they can't send him down. Wouldn't it be nice if he finds a home in the pen?

I am one of the few that think Boof is a GOOD pitcher. Not a great one but a good one.

Maybe it will take a while to learn how to pitch without the extra poudns, or maybe he is just a reliever.

I still think he has the stuff to start IMO. This is a good step forward.

I like the idea of Boof in the bullpen as I believe this is were he will be most effective. And he has the ability to go 3 innings if needed.

I like Boof too and I hope he has success in the pen. If he works hard and works out his issues he can probably start again.

Boof will keep er up in the pen and then be moved back to a starting role after we ship Livan! At least thats how i see it happening.

k, k, k, k, Hanging Curve...Blast to upper deck

Seriously though, I like Boof and would like to see him in the future here. Part of me wonders if that can happen though.

He needs to build his confidence again...Just my guess, but it will be Perkins back to Rochester until closer to the trading deadline when they can unload either Hernandez and or Rincon, just because Perkins still has options. It's not right, but the is probably the way it will go.

I agree. Bullben Boof and dump Rincon. I have yet to see that guy make it one inning without allowing some runs. Even his ERA is deceptively lower than it should be. Comes in with 2 guys on against the Chisox tonight, gives up an immediate HR yet two of the runs go against Blackburn. I'd rather have seen Boof out there eating up innings.

    • 4"-6" sucker minnows are turning walleyes on a lot of lakes right now.  Seems to be an underutilized method lately.  
    • It would probably be more accurate for you to say you simply choose not to believe it will be a problem.   What happens to your theory if interest rates rise to 5%?  
    • All depends on the district and how many years you have been a teacher.  Although MN is looking for teacher all over.. Our current district decided on keeping befits really high and seeing an increase in pay. Where my mother in-law (down in the cities) they have great benefits but there wages haven't not increased as significantly..    Although my wife is looking to open a daycare up so we knows if she will be teaching after all? 
    • You'll be fine with the door in the V.  I heard at one point that the Lake of the Woods edition was Ice Castle's most popular layout.  I know I see tons of them, but you will have to take some precautions.  I use a Towtector on my truck, which keeps the majority of the slush down.  A piece of tape or a tennis ball over the door knob is also done frequently.  Other than that, you'll have icing and freezing of your door, regardless of where you put it.  Just the nature of the doors we use.       
    • That does happen a lot and it sucks having to play those games.  I took my contract job knowing I was going to keep looking for full time work so it was really just a stop gap to get pay checks coming in and also to gain some experience in a new area and with a different company.  I think i was there less than 2 months total including the 2 week notice I gave after accepting my full time job.  Often times its easier getting a job when you're already working somewhere as you are viewed as more employable.  If you're not working then employers start to wonder why. That where a short term contract job can pay off.
    • I'm lucky enough to have the choice when I start my day, usually head in before traffic gets bad(6:30), but today I woke up and was like..........I'll wait until after rush hour(let that carp melt). We have a guy that starts at 4:30 am, and others that roll in at 10:00 am.   35W-494-Hwy100 on the way in, but I avoid 494 like the plague in the afternoon and cut through Bloomington. Adds a few minutes time that way, but it's always the same amount of time,  I hate hate hate the accordion traffic of 494. Jump on 35W right before the MN river and I have my own lane, no merging needed.   Curious to see how shutting down Hwy 169 is gonna affect things. Might roll in even earlier if need be.   Started working from home on Friday's two weeks ago, it's nice but I don't know if I would ever enjoy working from home full time. Stir crazy and lack of interaction with other folks.   Living on the south side of the metro stinks for taking trips up north. But we live with fewer meth mullets around.   We picked where we wanted to live first and then adjusted how far we were willing to travel for a job.        
    • Ya a saw that, sounds like they have played an easy schedule but you still have to pretty good to have that kind of record.
    • One could also say Koivu has been reborn, that line has been on a tear lately. I think all of them are at or near a point per game for the last 22 games. Not to mention they are doing that while usually getting the job of shutting down the other teams top line. Crazyness!
    • most people are pretty good in the shanty towns that I frequent.  the thing that pisses me off is the guys that come out with there 50 grand fish house and there 5 dollar generator.  instead of leaving it in the back of the truck where it wont bother anyone they drag it 50ft front there house set it next to me and let it buck very annoying.
    • Maybe you can help me understand something.  He mentions his wife is a teacher.  From what I have been told and through reading doc's through the MN Dept of Education, teachers generally get paid the same.  I understand there is a little "bump" for working in the cities, but doesn't the State Teachers Union dictate what teachers make to some extent?  My daughter wants to get into teaching and I was just curious.  I highly doubt a English teacher in Shakopee makes $15,000 more than a teacher in Detroit Lakes when comparing degrees and experience.  Hopefully MJ can offer some insight as well. Thanks!
