Speaking of the Chicago, were they even represented in the All Star game. I never heard anything about them contributing.

G.C.

Nice try w/ the cutdown garyc but having a low scoring 15 innings means not many position players did contribute.

Now if you're asking about P, then, yes, Chicago Cubs(Zambrano, Marmol, and Dempster with shutdown performances) did contribute.

Unfortunately their teammates could not.

Yeah, and didn't kosuke fukadome have like 9 strikeouts in the all star game? Probably set some sort of record...

Look at your clock, its about time for the cubbies to start choking on the dog!

I don't think anybody (him or Soriano) is worth what they are getting paid either, but they have been good additions to the Cubs.

Let me go check the standings now. Nyuk, nyuk.

At least the real games are back...4 days is too long. And the AllStar game and home run derby do not count as baseball. laugh

...and I sure hope every Twins "fan" stayed with the game tonight. Hey, call the kids in and make 'em watch while you're at it. Being blown out in the opening game of a series at the Stadium is never any fun, but there's character to be built, doggoneit!

i watched that drubbing...and stayed with it. At least when they get down so big so early...you don't have to get frustrated later in the night.

Cubs beginning their late season skid earlier than usual?

Gather the children 'round the tube again tonight. Maybe dress them up in their favorite Twins togs... This is how you raise hardcore Twins fans.

At least last night we had a White Sux loss...

Well, no more Frank Sinatra for another year... Classy, having Nathan pitch the 8th. Seems like the only thing Gardy has put any thought into lately, however.

It does appear they need lots of bp.

They just stink it up on the road.

considering we had the best record in the division on the road the first half of the season we'll have to disagree on that one Geno!

Gardy couldn't be doing a better coaching job this year and could very well be the Manager of the year in MLB.

Pier,

You mis-read my vague post.

I was talking about the Cubs in reference to the accusation they are beginning to swoon. They are terrible on the road this year and are indeed kind of in a slump. 7-8 All-Stars? Harumph!

Pass the Kool-Aid, Pier...

I know I couldn't do the job, that's not it. I just think Gardy just looks good when the boys are hittin' and when they're throwin' the ball good. Some of the hands-off stuff... lettin' it ride... that might be upper management, I dunno. Just seems like there's more to the job than sayin' that everybone's workin' their tails off and letting the chips fall. It took a public outcry to move No-Go down in the order. What will it take for him to see that when Red Dog is in for Mauer (much too often, by the way) that he doesn't necessarily need to bat him in the 3-hole? (Did I use enough Gardyisms?) wink

Public outcry had nothing to do with Gomez being moved. Where would you hit Redmond? .288 isn't bad for a backup and you would mess up the whole lineup and have everyone batting in an unfamiliar postion? He usually gives the Twins good ab's. I agree with Pier. If the Rays don't win the east, Gardy should be amongst the leaders in Manager of the Year votes in spite of what people on this site think.

Doh. Like I think they listen to the average fan... It's just that everybody and his aunt was saying it weeks before it was done. Maybe I'm just torqued because we use that backup way too often. OPS: Mauer-.871, Red-.663.

    • I see that the morans are still falling for the fake shiat.......   WASHINGTON — D.C. police have identified the man who was arrested after firing a gun inside of a restaurant Sunday afternoon in Northwest D.C. Edgar Maddison Welch, 28, of Salisbury, North Carolina, told police he went to Comet Ping Pong, a popular pizza place in the 5000 block of Connecticut Avenue Northwest, to “self-investigate” the conspiracy theory generated by a fake online news story, D.C. police said in a news release Sunday night. Comet Ping Pong was the target of the conspiracy theory that went viral before the election. The fake story claimed the pizza shop was home to child-trafficking, and that there was a connection between the pizzeria and Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Initially, D.C. officials had said that while the motive for the incident was unclear, it wasn’t likely tied to the fake news story. At around 3 p.m., police responded to reports of a man with a firearm at Comet Ping Pong. The suspect entered the restaurant and pointed his firearm in the direction of an employee, police said. The employee was able to escape and call police. The suspect had ordered everyone out of the restaurant then fired his assault rifle inside before he was taken into custody. Two firearms were found inside the restaurant and an additional weapon was found inside Welch’s vehicle. Welch was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon (gun), police said. There were no reports of injuries. Police said the area was safe and that the incident had not been a terrorist situation. Comet Ping Pong’s owner, James Alefantis, made a statement late Sunday night after the shooting, denying what he called “malicious and utterly false accusations.” He said that employees were getting the day off Monday, but hoped that operations would resume in a few days. Alefantis added, “I hope that those involved in fanning these flames will take a moment to contemplate what happened here today and to stop right away.”
    • 5 dollar bubbler, 5 dollar cooler and the theft of my wifes hot glue gun for 5 minutes and I have a minnow bucket that keeps them cool in the summer and wont freeze in the winter.  toss in a 94 cent scoop that hangs from a string and that's a price that's hard to beat at the store.
    • It's neat and I love looking at stuff like the Geniejar but it seems they are solving a problem I never had.
    • I've used the cheap vinyl fly line too but always get the coil effect unless you weight it fairly heavily.That can make you a lot further off the bottom than you think when you use the weight to set them. It coil even changes the depth if you set them with a flasher. I tried the new Suffix tip up line, they have braided and vinyl, and the vinyl was limper than my usual stuff but the braided was a real hook magnet. It's so thin if you break a strand or two you've lost 1/2 your strength it would seem. Is this all we have to think about? Come on Ice! 
    • How about "Minions Cheer for Crony Capitalism"?.....  
    • You should be able to find a way better price than that.  We had a 21' done for under $1k, and a 24' done for $1100.  
    • I'm a huge fan of fly line.  Remarkable hard to tangle or knot.  
    • I think the money is front loaded but the cap hit lives with us forever. The NHL also penalized these kinds of contracts in the last CBA so we are likely stuck with it no matter what happens, not sure on the details but I'm sure we will hear all about them if things get bad. We should get some cap relief when we lose a guy to Vegas this off season so sort term we aren't too bad. Koivu off the books after next season, Pommers the season after next unless we buy him out which is possible. The Suter and Parise contracts are going to hurt us in the long run no matter what we do, it's just something we 100% had to do at the time to become a competitive team.

      It's just too bad that Pommers and an injured Parise had their production tail off because some of the younger guys are having nice seasons and for us to have any kind of a chance at a cup we needed everyone clicking at once. Not that it can't still happen but it just makes it harder for us.
    • Excuse me, I meant fly fishing line, not backing.  I use a level taper (uniform diameter throughout entire line length).  I don't know what the coating is but it is fairly intermediate sinking rate.  Just don't get floating line.
