Twins - Sox series

31 posts in this topic

Does anyone know the major league record for runs scored in a 3 or 4 game series?? Its been 3 games so far and the Sox have scored 33 runs and knowing them they will have another double diget run total today against this horrid pitching staff we have had the last week.

The Sox have been just crushing the ball this series.

7-5 today, and a 4 game sweep.

A 6 1/2 game lead is pretty nice here in June. Hopefully, they continue to hit.

They blew a 15 game lead in 2005 so anything can happen.

And now 7 doh!! Oh well, its June, lets just hope they can pull out of this pitching funk. Bert was pretty fired up with how they have been pitching lately, maybe he should gives the Twinks a little advice from the outside.

Too wildly erratic of a club to have any faith in, and too talented of a team to give up on. It's one series. Rip off a nice streak and they could be right back in it. It's happened before to both clubs.

Very unlikely to happen again, but weren't we behind Detroit by about 14 games in 2006 at one point???

Yeah its all too early to tell. The twins likely will not do a thing this year because of the youth and inconsistencies. It should be a nice group in the years to come though.

Hello Boys,

Like Jack Nicholson in The Shining....I'm BACK!

Sorry to dissapoint so many of you Twinkie lovers but The Wind Meister and the Mrs. were on a short vacation to Washington DC. I had a VIP tour of the White House and The Capitol compliments of our State Senator Dick Durbin. We visited Senator Durbin in his office where his staff was having a pizza party with Barack Obama's staff, pretty wild. We met and took photos with Senator Durbin and there was even a movie star there. Kal Penn from Harold and Kumar go to White Castle was there with the Obama staff. We then went on a VIP tour of the Capitol where we got to see Senator Durbin introduce a bill in session on the rising gas prices. Pretty nice seats from the VIP gallery. Then we hung out with the Senator in his Majority Whip office, what a fantastic view from his office, great shot of the Washington Monument and he has an absolutly stunning painting of Abraham Lincoln in his office. All in all a nice little 5 day get away which was made even sweeter by my beloved sweeping those Twinks in a 4 game series.

So now I get back and find out that my boss is taking me to the Cubs game tomorrow as a reward for producing some record numbers last month. We have a skybox suite for our company and a few of our top guns will be attending, myself included in my Cutter and Buck 2005 World Series Championship White Sox golf shirt. I am warming up my Tomahawk Chop already to root on the Braves since I am a huge ABC fan...Anybody But The Cubs!

Oh well, got to run. Big day of baseball ahead tomorrow, GO BRAVES!

Windy...with all that hob-nobbing on political hill, you better watch it, or the boys from the "outdoors agenda" forum will be all over you. gringringrin

Now back to baseball. This year is all about "NFL" parity so far. How can the Sox wallop the Twins and lost to the Tigers??

dude,

I was thinking the same thing! They usually hand Verlander his hat by the 4th inning but he shut them down yesterday. I guess even a broken watch is right twice a day, right? LOL

I just found out that Kal Penn, the movie star that we met is currently in the TV series House as one of the new doctors. We watch that show all the time and did not realize that was who he was. He had this black head wrap kind of a du rag thing on so we really did not recognize him as the guy who plays Dr. Lawrence Kutner in the House series.

Limo to Wrigley, lunch at Bar Louie and then taking in the Cubbies. I didn't even mind that they won the game in extra innings. I got only got a few comments on my World Championship shirt, mostly good fun. I even found a few Sox fans at the game who gave me the thumbs up! Limo is definitly the way to get to Wrigley, that place is a zoo!

dude,

Been hitting Cass all week and had no time for baseball or posting...but to paraphrase our good buddy..."I'm Back".

Windy,

I would say you are a good luck charm for my Cubbies, but seeing as how they made it to the best record in MLB with you rooting against them, I'd rather you continue to deny the obvious. After all, I still root against your WSox and they too are in first.

Zoo? You are a novice!

That was weird, when I typed in the correct spelling of the poor boy sandwich, by leaving off the final o and r, the site said it was a poor word usage. When I typed in poor boy it was fine, kind of wierd, eh?

I was wondering if Geno caught some when he was up at Cass.

Just trying to be nice for a change and not hassle anybody like in the Cass Lake forum.

dude,

6 of us brought back 429 go-homers made up of 8 species.

We got 3 limits of crappie, 6 limits of gills, 5 limits of Rockies, 3 1/2 limits of walleye, 3 1/2 limits of LMB, and 3 limits of pike, but only 2 1/2 limits of perch --- and a single ugly bullhead.

I caught smallest pike, LMB, and Rockie in our group. Maybe next year I will get largest....but don't bet on me.

Sled,

Only to excess...nyuk,nyuk.

Many-a-trip has been saved by those Rockies being in a biting mood. I've got the rep on another board that Rockies are my "go-to" fish.

Been through this a thous x's on the board: they filet and eat just like gills to us but not as sweet - no funky taste at all.

    • Actually, you just chose not to.

    • I've had a Marcum camera for many years and have found it extremely educational.  When I take new anglers on the ice, they love watching the fish.  Never had the camera spook a fish.

       

      I used a Marcum battery-powered panner to rotate the camera, and that helps identify my lure.  However, you also have to be pretty confidant with the depth of your jig, so that it will show up on the camera.

       

      I've found the camera of limited value during the summer, because it's constantly moving up and down, and a little side to side.  Even if I can find my jig, it's not for long.  What I use the camera for during soft water season is to identify bottom structure and get a general idea what's down there.  

       

      During hard water season, I use it primarily to see bites before they happen.  Not only do I know exactly what's near or looking at my jig, but I can see when they're actually going after it.  I have pulled the hook away from fish that were obviously too small, and also been able to set the hook on a bite before I could feel it.

       

      I love my flasher, but I have out-fished buddies with my camera.

    • Now that's funny.  I chose not to answer a ignorant question that an elitist like yourself could care less the answer to.  The only reason you want an answer to that question is to spend the next week trying to find some ignorant reason he/she is a bad choice. #rentfree
    • But you couldn't articulate who your favorite Trump picks for justices were, or why.
    • Many of the resorts / cabins where I stay on weekend fishing outings do not have a fish cleaning house. I also do not like the smell of dead fish from the cleaning process in my home. My wheel house is a fishing shack only, non-sleeper, which I take off the ice each night. It has both A/C and propane heat so I usually plug it into an AC outlet at night.   I decided to build a retractable / drop-down fish cleaning table 17” x 48” up and out of the way while on the ice and a warm place to clean fish. I use clear news print between the my fish cleaning board and the table to eliminate the need to wash the table every time I use it. Functionally works well, still needs some finish touches, paint, stain, rust treatment. I can also see many uses for this table while on the Ice. Fish Cleaning Table.mp4
    • Big win for the team today. Not many folks thought they would go into Carolina and leave 3-0. If this offense can get their sh$t together this may be a fun year. Defense is the real deal.
