Biggest TWINS Offseason Move Yet!!

15 posts in this topic

Good to see we got him locked up. I wonder why the twins went this route when they could have signed two lesser individuals and paid them the same amount as hiring the big gun? thats not very typical of the Twins.

Huge Signing!

Hopefully he will be worth the money! Thats why they wouldnt sign big 3rd baseman. Carl would be proud.

I guess it took the "old coot" to go up to that big ballpark in the sky for them to pull the trigger on a big signing.

Man! I am going to have to blow a nasty letter into Kenny Williams and ask how my beloved Pale Hose could let this signing fall thru the cracks to a small market team like the Twinks! LOL

Enjoy your new signing!

We need more Lefties for the 2010 the ground crew. Anyone know how he rakes?? And does he use ash,maple or handles on his rakes?

his attention to detail is outstanding which you will notice in the contrast from grass to the twinkies emblem.he uses some shadow technique so it seems so 3-d. wink

as for his raking skills, i cant believe this guy was still on the market for HE IS A SWITCHIE.long powerful pull right hand swipes and a more contact slap motion from the left side of the rake. coolcool

I was hoping for power from the left side, but a left handed "slap raker" is always an asset. Both ways!! bonus!.

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
