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.

    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
