Big Smile On My Face

7 posts in this topic

OK, so the Twins had a freebie chance yesterday to pick up a half game and they couldn't do it. It's ok, the Sux will blow up eventually, and this weekends series VS the Red Sox might be a good chance.

What is making me smile so much is when I go to yahoos baseball page and they have Nick Punto listed as the #2 hottest hitter in the Majors. You all know (after last seasons squabbles) that I am a HUGE fan of the human highlight reel. About 99% of you on here were dissing me, and dissing Nick for his hitting. Well, he had a bad year. He still has THE BEST glove in the Majors as far as infielders are concerned, and his bat has come around again. Like I knew it would. He is on ESPNs top plays everynight, and remember what I said last year- he saves a ton of runs from scoring, which alot of the time is more important than knocking in runs. A really big bonus with him is he can play anywhere, and I don't think I need to remind you guys, that is huge, this season especially since we have had a ton of injuries this season.

Nice post zamboni. I have never bashed Nick as I knew what he could do also. Every nite on the highlite reel. Last night DP with Casilla was great, so smooth and the throw back to 1st beat the runner by 3 steps. Sooooooo SWEEEEEEEET.

I've always been a fan of Punto. Not only is he gold glove caliber and a human highlight reel, the dude has speed on the base paths.

I like the guy because he enjoys the game, he plays for the right reasons and always goes all out. Maybe not the best bat, but sure makes up for it in the feild.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
