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!

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
