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 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.

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.

    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
    • Looking for any intel one would be willing to share for bass fishing on Long Lake just south of Park Rapids.  Our family will be headed there in a couple of weeks.  From what I gather its predominately a walleye lake.  I'm just trying to get a general feel of the lake and hopefully shorten the learning curve.   Thanks, BK
