Official Twins Road trip Game Thread.

228 posts in this topic

Post all Rants, concerns, and Frustrations regarding the Twins longest road trip "14 days" in 40 years!

Personally If the Twins are within 3 games of the Central lead after this trip I'll be pretty happy.

Tonights match up versus Tori Hunter and the Angles.

Lackey (10-2, 3.22 ERA) vs Scott Baker (7-3, 3.91)

Go Twins!

The real season starts now...Lots of scoreboard watching.

3 game sounds reasonable to me...To bad these are night games out in LA. I hate west coast game. An old guy like me needs his sleep. grin

Were gonna win Twins!!!! etc.

Hopefully they can win at least one Angel game and win the series with the Mariners, Oakland, and Toronto. My prediction is a 7/7 split being a game or two out of first at the end of it all. I think we'll have a good idea if they can win the division on how well they handle this road trip. Time for the Twins to turn it on.

The White Sox are going to need to help us out over the next few weeks. They are just too hot right now.

The twins aren't too shabby lately either, The darn homers the sox are hitting are unbelievable. Must be nice to have a $120 Million dollar payroll. It's going to be a good seriese with the Angels.

And what is the Angels payroll? And the BoSox? And the Yankees? Dollars don't always mean wins, though it ain't my money they are spending so I say, sign em all!

White Sux still have a 10 game losing streak to go through yet this season. Twins will be fine.

I can see the Twins sneaking two from LAA, two in Seattle, two in Oakland (maybe three), and two in Toronto. That's 8-6 in the next two weeks.

Chicago might get one with Tampa Bay, three with Baltimore, one with Boston, and three with Cleveland in the same time period. They do have nine of the next twelve on the road. So, they could go 8-4.

If my North Dakota math serves me that would make the Twins behind by 3 games due to the fact the the Sox play two fewer games in the same time period.

Optomistic? Yep, that's what fans are supposed to be.

This will be a big test for the twins if they can come off this road trip with better then half the games won they will be in great shape for the final 4 weeks and yes i think they could go 10-4 out west.

I'm hoping for a 9-5 road trip from the twins. The whitesoxs always struggle in the month of September. Weather gets colder and the balls stay in the park.

It's do or die time. Let's hope they do it! It may be a stretch, but I too think they could go 10-4. Let's hope I don't eat those words!

GO TWINS!!!

You guys sure are a lot more optimistic then I am.

I would take 7-7 for sure which would be better then our sub .500 road record we have this season!

Ya it was a good game, thanks to Punto, the most underated infielder in MLB! grin

Punto had a great night. If our boys would quit swinging at pitches in their eyes (Young) or looking at third stike pitches over the heart of the plate (Harris, Morneau) we may just go 8-6 on this trip.

The Sox have a long history of a late season dive and should start this any day now.

Twins up by a game when we get back to the Dome 9/4.

Go Twins!

Well the Sox havent been showing any weakness lately! So they better hurry and take this dive quick.

I think if the Twins are going to win the division, they are going to have to work for it this year.

    • I'll be getting out again on Tuesday with the bow. It has been very hard finding time to get out this year, between work and a 4 month old at home. Last time out I spent 12 hours in the blind and saw quite a few birds during the middle of the day. Had multiple times where I thought it was going to happen but the Toms wouldn't commit 100%. Making a small adjustment this go round and hoping things come together.
    • Was thinking for hunting and maybe put a plow on it to use at my place up north. Wouldn't be my main driver. Was thinking around 15K for budget but that was before I did much looking mostly on line so far. But might step up in price for the right rig. And a lot of that would depend if I liked the newer V6 engine and 5 speed auto or 6 speed trany and less miles etc. Just by looking at dealer prices on line I would think a guy could find a pretty nice late model for around 20 or less. I think if I bought a nicer later model I would drive it more as they look like they have made the interior a lot nicer and more comfortable than the older ones. On the other hand if I ran across a real clean older one with the in line 6 and not to many miles for the right price that would be an option to. The drawback to a newer shiny one it might take a while before I ran it down the brushy trail.

    • Our MN hunt this year was just about as easy as they come.  Sutty and I arrived at different times, he was late, and set up on opposite sides of the field as planned.  I could hear the birds gobbling in the valley below in their usual spot, and they sat there a long time in the cold.  Sutty couldn't see because he was on the back side of a finger of trees because he didn't want to spook anything out since he was late...  Eventually they got down and proceeded to sit on the far hill for a while longer.  I could see a 6 or so males, but suspected most were jakes, and a few hens.     Just when I was getting tired of waiting, about 8:30am, I saw one gobbler enter the field and walk straight towards Sutty's position.  As the bird got in front of Sutty, another nice gobbler came into the field.  I called to him but he wanted nothing to do with me.  Sutty shot the first bird, and the second one didn't know what happened.  Of course Sutty came running out of his blind and scared off the second bird that he didn't even know was there.      Sutty just bought a new house and had to head home asap to help his wife with packing things, and his daughter didn't seem too interested in shooting her own bird this year.  Now that she saw how ridiculously easy it is she probably won't be interested next time either.      I figured I should get to the edge of the field the birds were coming out on, and as I started moving my blind I bumped some hens that hadn't yet come up all the way out of the valley.   I finished getting my blind in place and sat a while, but it seemed we had scared the remaining birds out of the area, or maybe they were just laying low out of the wind.  In any case I went to get some lunch and let things settle down for a while.     After a couple hours of eating and casting for fish that weren't there, I decided I would head back up to sit in my blind.  Just as I reached the top of the hill to see into the field I saw three big gobblers walking across the field.  I ducked down and ran around the edge of the field out of their view to get closer.     I crawled up to about 10yd from the field edge, as far as I could go without being seen, and started calling.  They liked what they heard, but wouldn't commit right away.  After maybe 10 minutes of me cutting and purring, and all three of them strutting and gobbling out at 60-70 yards they started coming.  I couldn't see them well through the brush I was behind, and they didn't want to walk through it.  If I was at the edge of the field I could have shot them, they were within 40yd.  They proceeded to do a big arc along the field edge back to where I had just walked.     After a couple minutes of not seeing them I picked up my call, they gobbled, and then I saw them marching in where I had just walked.  When I last saw them going this direction I had shifted to face that way, I was now facing the tree I just had my back against, which put my butt in a thorn patch and the barrel to one side of the tree.  The birds started walking to the other side, so as they got behind the tree I eased the barrel to the side they were going to come out on.  They started coming up the other side back to the field they were just in and were too close together for a shot.  Finally one eased out in front and I let him have it.  He tipped backwards and rolled back downhill, and didn't even kick until I went over to grab him.  27 yards with the range finder after the fact.       Both birds turned out to be very nice old birds with long spurs.     Sutty's weighted 22lb 4oz, 10" beard, 1 3/16" spurs.  I believe this is his best turkey to date.     My bird weighted 25lb 8oz, 10" beard, 1 1/8" spurs.  My best turkey by weight and age.     Sutty and his bird.        Me and my bird.  I shot from one of the trees above this rock I think.      
    • Got it done in mn.  More to come when I get home.
    • Go to a license agent and buy one for your desired season. Season C, is on process thru May 2nd. Season D, is May 3rd thru May 9th. Season E, is May 10th thru May 16th. Season F, is May 17th thru May 31st. Season F also allows anyone with an unused tag from earlier season to hunt this period as well.   Hope this help PF.  
    • How do the over the counter licenses work this year? I missed last season but would like to get out this year even though I didn't apply for the lottery.
    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
