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.

I miss Radke, The old Liriano, 2006 Santana, and #34
Ditto Especially the #34. No one will ever replace him!

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!

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
