Guerrier signs

Recommended Posts

Money well spent. Let's hope that he can stay where he belongs in the 6-7 innings.

The Twins have avoided arbitration with righthander Matt Guerrier by signing him to a one-year deal worth $1.475 million.

Guerrier had requested a $1.75 million salary for 2009 while the Twins filed for $1.2 million. The sides settled at the midpoint rather than go to arbitration. Guerrier was 6-9 with a 5.19 ERA last season, easily the worst of his past four full seasons with the Twins.

Ya he is due to have a rebounding season. He had a bad season, and still had enough guts to ask for a raise. I wonder if that would work for the rest of us in the real world.

G.C.

Now the Front Office should be able to focus all of their time on the free agent market crazy

I hear they have their eye on a few assistant groundskeepers from around the league who are not happy with the teams they are currently working for!

That's funny Windy but first they need to concentrate on janitors to clean the stalls at the stadium.

What is the rush??? Livan and Sidney are still out there as free-agents waiting for somebody to sign them. laugh

We might get them cheap.

After watching Guerrier blow a few games, I started watching him with blindfolds on after he got put in.

Guerrier was garbage last year, but I think he's young enough and has the right stuff to turn his game around. The heavy workload didn't help him any either.

I agree the heavy workload didn't help, didn't he lead the majors in appearances last season?

    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
