Bonds in Blue

41 posts in this topic

I like the idea, last in the league in home runs, we need another stick in the lineup, we all know that. And the good news is the TWINS can afford him. As far as the distraction part boo-whoo, tell him to show up and bat.We need another bat in the lineup to make the playoffs and to go deeper in the playoffs.

I'm not a Twins fan...it would be a disgrace to even have him in the midwest! I totally understand where you are coming from though....I don't think any organization would want the headache that comes along with him. That's a lot of drama!

Really is it that bad, heck ol knobby was on the list. We used to support him ...right? People are ranting and raving we need a third baseman that can hit. I really don't see one out there we can get.

For me, its not the roids, its the attitude. I dont want what he brings in the locker room. We dont need those headaches.

If he were right-handed, I would be all for it. The Twins need a right-handed power hitter...we are already lefty-heavy in the lineup.

Id rather have Bonds than Monroe as a RH DH.

I think he would be a great addition if he signed for cheap.

This is the kind of post you'd expect from PierBridge!

You crazy!.... grin

Bond's career is over isn't he like 47? just my opinion but the only jersey he'll be wearing will pin stripes and I aint't talking the Yankee's.

Since Bond's agent is shoping him around at the league minimum salary he would be a good pickup for the rest of the year, even if he is a Diva. Sign him at the league minimum, give him a performance incentive, and can his butt if he starts acting up. Not much downside.

If Bonds paid us 75 million we still wouldn't let him come here for OBVIOUS reasons

I think it would help the twins with his at bat, I would clap for him after every home run he hit for us, but it doesnt matter, it wont happen!

Cause the Twins are anti-power?

Cause if the Twins made a bold move to bolster our team for a post season run it would shock many people to the point of heart attacks?

I think it would be an absolute shocker if the Twins ended up with Bonds.......I would be for it for the fact that he is better than what we have at DH and in a must we could put him in the outfield and he wouldn't do any worse than Delmon Young.....He might bring a crowd with him but he might be the power that we are lacking and the way the Twins handle players I think Bonds would be just happy to be given a chance to come and play ball. The Twins need something to get them over the hump and into the playoffs and the all-time hr king* might just be what we need.......

How about this guy??

Reds left fielder Adam Dunn hit his 30th home run on Monday night, tying the Phillies' Ryan Howard for the major-league lead. His .941 OPS ranks ninth in the NL. And his defense, by most measures, has improved.

Nobody wants him?

    • Have a friend that does this....   http://aquaculturenorthamerica.com/Finfish/fresh-water-fish/profitable-commercial-production-for-walleye-and-saugeye/    
    • There's a live rescue going on in Wis Como Lake I think it was right now for a guy that went through but it doesn't look good as they just sent the divers down.   WISN 12 NEWS
    • Ho Ho....   or       Use the fake news thing as a way to censor speech not acceptable to the left.  Yah sure. 
    • Pen raised walleye?   Sounds like fake news.   Lots of Canadian walleye but I think it is netted from wild in places like Lake Winnipeg or Red Lake and so on.   Must be Putin trying to discredit the Canadian Walleye providers. 
    • Quick question. On the striker models they have a setting called the A-scope. It basically widens the right hand part of the screen where it starts so that it works kinda like a showdown at the beginning of the graph which I like on the ice.  Can you check and see if that unit has that?  
    • 5 x 5 will be nor problem for one guy and gear.  I speared out of a two man flip over otter sled for several years and had not problem.  Use to spear out of a 4 x 6 permanent and that is less sq foot than the 5 x 5 hub.  It is nice to have a large hole and yes it lets in more light in those low light conditions but I always used a 3 x 2 spear hole and never had any issues.  It worked, could it be better?  Of course but you just have to figure out what is right for you.  Get a 5 x 5 foot piece of cardboard draw out your hole on it, set up your chair and put all your gear on it and then sit down.  This is probably the closest way to experiencing it prior to doing so...... Good Luck 
    • I've seen walleye at grocery stores in the cities for a buck or two more than king crab.   Yeesh.
    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
