Move over Joe, Eddie is the new baby

Recommended Posts

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.

Send down a pitcher for now. Eddie hasnt been doing very well recently! He has allowed runs in his appearences since the Allstar break

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 agree, atleast they are trying something, without giving much up.

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.

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.

    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
