Move over Joe, Eddie is the new baby

44 posts in this topic

The Twins have acquired lefthander Eddie Guardado from the Texas Rangers in exchange for minor league righthander Mark Hamburger, bringing back a fan favorite who helped the club win the AL Central division in 2002 and 2003.

Guardado, who earned the nickname, `Everyday Eddie,’ for his ability to pitch effectively for several straight days, is 3-3 with a 3.65 ERA and four saves in 55 appearances with Texas.

Hamburger was 1-2 with a 4.17 ERA and 13 saves in 27 games with Elizabethton, Tenn., of the Appalachian League.

The Twins later today will announce the move that will clear space on the major league roster for Guardado.

YA but look who is playing for. Not much interest as that team is going nowhere. Bring him back home and to a contending team. Look out. It could be good. We need to fill the 8th inning void.

I will, I liked him, but am glad we moved on to get Nathan. We will see how long I like him with how he pitches.

It's worth a try....Hopefully his poor pitching since the All Star break is atributed to wanting out of Texas and maybe he still has something left in the tank.

Go Eddie!

remember when he'd load the bases every time he'd close the game and get the 3rd out while we were chewing our fingernails down to the nubs....

Makes you appreciate Nathan that much more.

He makes me nervous but it's worth a shot. He ought to play better now that he has something to play for.

He would get it done when he was with us in the past but I think he cut about 3 years off all our lives the way he always made it WAY to close for comfort.

I'm all for it really, I think Rick Anderson can squeeze a couple months out of him yet.

What don't you like about that Leechbait.

nofish said it best, Everyday Eddie made my palms sweat when he took the mound. I over reacted of course but when I thought about it he'd be an ok set up guy I guess.

I think he's gotta be better than what we've been trotting out in the 8th lately. He did have a habit of making games interesting (hit a guy, walk a guy, strike out the side) but he usually got it done.

My guess is Everett will go down to make room for him. Only gonna be a few days till Sept call up.

Let's hope this move works. I sure hope he can help, but hey, with what we got it shouldn't be that hard.

I am definitely on the fence with Eddie and will take the we'll see approach. I did read that he is 3rd in the AL in holds, so that says something.

First the T-Wolves trade Mayo - now the Twins trade Hamburger....

You gotta think Lamb is the next to go ....

I would be no more nervous seeing him entering the game to preserve a lead than when I see Crain enter the game in the same situation!

They really should put Breslow in more when the game is close. I think the twins have really under-utilized this guy and he should have the 8th inning spot.

What happens when Hamburger gets into a tough situation?

"Hamburger is in a pickle here!"

I love it. Love the pickup of Eddie G. I don't see how it hurts us in any way. I bet he rebounds with us.

    •  I use a Digger mount on my ATV and sled.  Its fast and easy.   I'm on the ice everyday testing and tweaking Nils blades. I rack the auger on every blade change and some days that could be 20 times so for the me the Digger is exactly what I need.  The clamp on the Digger makes fast work of securing the auger and removal.   The height of the Digger frees room on the rack for more gear.      Once in a while we'll take my buddies ATV out fishing.  Hes got no auger rack so we'll bungie the auger to the ATV rack. It works but it makes me appreciate the Digger rack all the more.   Any rack would be an improvement there.   In the past guys have posted their homemade racks and I hope they do so again.   
    • Currently have a couple empires. Most likely toss one of them in. If I go with a furnace I'll use a small plug in step down transformer 120v AC to 12DC. They are cheap as hell basically an oversized cellphone charger.
    •   You realize the only ones taking Calexit with any seriousness are conservatives. Which means conservatives are the ones falling for the Russian propaganda. Liberals say it sarcastically because conservatives think the country would be better off without the "coastal liberal elites" (even though California pays in $405 billion in federal taxes and receives only $344 billion in federal spending, meaning the rest of the country would be $61 billion poorer without California).

    • So Bear, please describe what your policy on those drugs now banned would be, in as much detail as you can.     I am really wondering what the alternative envisioned by the "stop the war on drugs" folks is.      
    •   Bear, I explained why we are stuck with the two party system.   If you don't like the two we have, you need to "pull a trump" and take over one of them.     Good Luck.

    • I would suggest using non-oxy gas also!
    • I highly doubt it needs carb kits if only sat that long. Draining the carb bowls and spraying carb cleaner in there can clean things up a lot and loosen sticky floats. Should be a main jet on each carb you can pull to drain carb bowls and spray into and clean jet. Put in fresh gas with seafoam in it and new plugs and it will probably run. Impeller is a pretty easy job to. Should be able to find a video on u tube on how to do it. I would drain my carb bowls on my old 115 2 stroke every spring and you would be surprised at the slimy stuff that came out of them sometimes and that was just sitting over winter.
