Anybody still miss Hunter?

14 posts in this topic

I do not miss him, looks like we have replaced his bat for sure and I dont think the opposing pitchers like him batting or on the basepaths. Now if he can pull out some key hits in the playoffs....

Exactly, he knows how the Twins operate, and what we offered him was plenty fair, and he already has more money then he could ever spend. Tori just got greedy.

Ahhh, 2006. Wasn't that a good time? Well... right up until the playoffs that is. Still, that team made for a memorable August and September.

C'mon, anyone with a brain and/or is paying attention misses him.

He wasn't worth the LENGTH of the contract, but anyone who says they "don't miss" a guy who's averaged 30HR & 100RBI the past two years on an offensively struggling team is thinking with their jock strap. smile

He made the choice to leave not the Twins. Say what you will, but I will gladly pay Gomez His minimal salary and watch him mature the next 5 years. (Then hope his ego doesnt out grow the Twinks)

Yeah - Miss him, of course. We will be alright though and the twins aren't a team that will pay that type of contract.

Small Ball it!

Hunter for the most part with the Twins was not clutch. Lots of K's with runners in scoring pos,, lots of DP's and many HR with no one on base and the game allready over.

I shouldn't have to mention his playoffs.

Glad he's gone,,, save for the one or two snags over the fence.

That's the only thing I will miss is the incredible plays in the outfield the best was when he robbed Bonds at the all star game.

I'm definately not glad hes gone, but i do like the outfield right now. Its young and the potential is amazing.

The only thing that disapoints me about the 3 main guys is they never ever go after homerun balls that are close. Thats what made Gomez going after Princes bomb on Saturday all the better...he nearly snagged it, plus almost gunned him down at 3rd. Really makes you think how good Hunter really was roaming that wall!

    • You would get what you deserve if he does do what he says he's going to do. You would get to pay for a wall, probably watch your children or grandchildren go to war, pay for his infrastructure spending, you'll still get some kind of government sponsored healthcare, more gun control and I can only imagine what else.
    • You don't seem to get it at all. It's all about what these candidates stand for. If trump would completely change his stances (again) to be closer to what the Libertarians stand for then yes you may have a point. With his current views I would not be a Trump supporter and would hope he would have no way of gaining the Libertarian party nomination. 
    • But yet you can't answer PF's question. If you can't think of any you admire, why should he be able to? That question is like the infamous, "If you could be a tree, what kind of tree would you be?" Stupid questions don't deserve an answer. At least he didn't say Putin.  
    • OK, here is your big chance to get some land away from the evil state government and back into private hands.    And help out the schools and fight cronyism at the same time.    (the requirement you need to be there to bid is clearly a crony deal in my opinion) The Department of Natural Resources will sell 40 northern Minnesota parcels in three public oral bid auctions in October and November. Tuesday, Oct. 25 – Nine northwestern Minnesota parcels will be auctioned at the County Administration Building in Bemidji. Thursday, Oct. 27 – 27 northeastern Minnesota parcels will be auctioned at the Lake County Courthouse in Two Harbors. Thursday, Nov. 3 – Four parcels in north-central Minnesota will be auctioned at DNR Brainerd area office. The properties include unimproved recreational land and residential lakeshore parcels in Aitkin, Cass, Clearwater, Cook, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Lake, and St. Louis counties. There is a wide range of sizes and land uses in this selection of sales, from a small 0.80 acre former water access site on Pine Lake in Clearwater County to a 200-acre recreational parcel in Breitung Township in northeastern St. Louis County. The DNR regularly sells land which is no longer needed for its original conservation purpose, after a thorough internal review, and after giving state agencies and local governments opportunities to purchase the land. Proceeds from sales of lands the DNR had once acquired go to the DNR division that had managed the land and are used to purchase and develop lands better suited to that division’s conservation goals. Many of the parcels to be sold are School Trust lands. Proceeds from these auction sales are deposited to a fund that benefits the state’s public school system. School Trust land by law can only be sold at public auction.
      Bidders are advised to obtain and view the property data sheet, be familiar with the property, minimum bid price, and terms and conditions of sale prior to attending the auction. To obtain a property data sheet or terms and conditions of sale call 651-259-5432, or 888-646-6367 or email landsale@dnr.state.mn.us. The property data sheets are also available online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/lands_minerals/landsale/.
    • Watch the video.  He didn't say "I don't find much to admire...."   He said "uh... I'm having an Aleppo moment... maybe the guy that used to be president of mexico.... then weld said "Fox" and he said "yeah, Fox"   You had to see it to believe it.    
    • Who are the world leaders you admire the most? Feel free to name them . Personally I can't think of any I have admiration for
