Casilla-out for the season?!

15 posts in this topic

What has everyone else been hearing about Casilla and his injury? It sounds like he may be out the rest of the season. His injury in his thumb was similar to tolbert's with the same ligament torn, so that isn't good. He's going to see a doctor today so let's pray. We just have to hope for the best and update each other here.

That's what Patrick Ruesse has been saying on kstp. Twins org. is keeping quiet about this until trading deadline passes. Just hope they make a deal because Everett just won't do.

There was some talk during the game tonight of a possible trade with the orioles for Brian Roberts. That might not be to bad for the season.

One can only hope they play Everett only when they have to, or better yet, not at all!

Everett --

He couldn't start on my boy's T-ball team.

What is with all of these [PoorWordUsage] HAND injuries?!?! How irritating is that.

Of course the Twins would keep quiet about this around the deadline. We know they aren't going to make a move, so it would upset fans even more to know we aren't making a move without a soild starting second-basemen.

I just read that he's undergoing season ending surgery. The Twins were trying to keep it quiet but Casilla let the cat out of the bag.

They are in tough shape, for sure....

It will be a suprise if the Twins make a trade that would be worth anything. That would be for the Yankees or Boston, nor Minnesota.

It would not break my heart to see Biff Bonser go via trade. We really could use a right bat. bring Cuddy back play him at third. Busher to 2nd.

I really think the Twins need to make a move and get a bat in their line-up after reading what the Sox just did.

Just read that the Reds are shipping Ken Griffey Jr to the Sox, now that will be some line-up to go against.

Our softball team has a few "fillers" available and are sitting by the phones waiting for the Twins to call. wink You know they aren't going to make a move. Seen this morning what Seattle is asking in return for Beltre. At least one of the following...Blackburn, Baker, Slowey, Perkins or Span. Auh...that would be a NO! Plus pick up a 12 mil on Beltre for next year... laugh

Uhm...am I missing something? Punto is a great defensive 2nd baseman and is hitting .290. Yeah, it hurts to loose someone like Casilla, but the Twins will not make a big trade and Punto will be just fine in that spot.

Harris is a solid ss and Buscher is prooving to be a good 3b guy and is hitting way beyond expectations.

Cuddy will be back soon, then we can dump Monroe and things will be rosy again. (as soon as Liriano replaces Livan) smile

Punto is a .290 hitter in limited duty. He's not a legit hitter. Love him as a utility player, but he's overexposed as an everyday guy. Watch his average start to slide if he's in the linup 6 days a week.

Casilla might be the biggest blow of the year after the way he's sparked the top of the lineup the last few months.

I wouldn't be upset to see blackburn go...And punto is still having issues with his injury. Either way I am dome bound tonight!

    •   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.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
