Knife for Boof

12 posts in this topic

Twins reliever Boof Bonser will have exploratory surgery on Wednesday in St. Petersburg to try to get to the bottom of why he’s having shoulder problems.

The surgery will be performed by Rays’ team physician Dr. Koco Eaton.

Bonser will miss at least several weeks because of the surgery - but even longer if he needs more than just a clean-up. Bonser reported shoulder soreness at the end of last season but an MRI revealed no structural damage. Rest didn’t help, as Bonser threw three times off a mound in January and still felt discomfort.

Going to hurt the bullpen. I think Boof was due for a good year in the pen. He would start the season there and know his job.

Trying to think of my favorite Boof moment, and I can't. I don't think it's his shoulder that's sore but his neck from snapping it around watching the ball leave the yard all the time. He can come throw BP for my 15 year olds this summer.

Boof was a stud the second half of the 06 season. He was our #2 starter behind Johan. If he could regain that form, he'd be fine. Seems to me he was more aggressive going after hitters then and would finish the off with that great curve ball he has. Maybe the shoulder had something to do with it? That pitch(curve) sure seemed to have a sharper break to it in 06 than it has recently.

Boof Bonser was found to have tears in his labrum and rotator cuff during surgery on Wednesday.

He's almost certainly done for the season. Bonser was shaping up as a potential setup man, so it's a big loss to a team already without Pat Neshek. Juan Cruz was looking like a potential luxury for the Twins, but now there's a real need for him.

I haven't given up on Boof yet. After his shoulder heals, he could be a great set-up man with his stuff. He should get some POP back in his fastball when he is healthy again. Patience....

    • Correct.  Stinkhorns.
    • Sorry, HW signed the agreement then handed it over to Billy C.  So, you're right, clearly the democrats fault.
    • Who signed the NAFTA treaty? The House of Representatives approved NAFTA, by a vote of 234 to 200 on November 17, 1993, and the Senate voted 60 to 38 for approval on November 20. It was signed into law by President Clinton on December 8, 1993, and took effect on January 1, 1994.   Derp.....
    • I say we go to Mars and make the Martians pay for it.
    • No idea what you're talking about, but I'll assume it's complimentary.
    • Probably a good call since Trump's assertion that Billy C. signed NAFTA into law is false.
    • Any one have one of the newer automatic King Quest Satellites? I just bought a new Ice Castle, and my old own had the Winegard crank up style dish which I had no problem with. They are trying to tell me to buy a new  king portable one, but I am not sure it is worth the extra money. I only know of one person with the newer one, and he said he liked the older crank up one better. He said he was always losing signal with automatic one. Any feed back would be great.. Thanks
    • Hey all, I recently upgraded from my homemade wheelhouse to a new hydraulic ice castle and had a few questions I forgot to ask at the dealer. 1. For the hydraulic frame, does anyone bring extra hydraulic fluid with? Wouldn't imagine to need it unless you had a leak but I don't know much about hydraulics. Ever need to change out the fluids? 2. Ladders. After buying and trying to get on the top bunk I noticed it is extremely hard to climb up there (especially after a few beers) are they suppose to come with a ladder? was going to call the dealer and try and make them throw one in. I made a temporary ladder which works fine but wondering what other people have done. 3. DNR Registration numbers. My previous house I had some decals made up and looked real nice. However that had smooth siding. Anyone have any advice on where to put numbers that look good? Suppose I could just be extra careful in applying to the ribbed siding so they get applied smooth with the grooves but wondering where everyone else puts theirs. Don't really want to do the old white square boat numbers on there. 4. Microwaves. Anyone have any recommendations on a good microwave to install? I have a lot of empty space above the hydraulics near the kitchen I think a microwave would be perfect, and there is already an outlet there for charging the hydraulic system battery - just wondering if anyone had a good one for travel/low power draw. 5. Any recommendations on generators? Was going to go buy a new Honda 2000 have heard good things about them and always been a Honda fan. that should run a small microwave I'm thinking? My Honda 1000 bit the dust last year - mainly because of my own mistake haha 6. Sound system. Sounds okay in there but it isn't the upgraded premium speakers. Wondering if anyone had some new speakers they liked and possibly a new deck. 7. Rod holders. Wanted to throw some fishing pole holders on the wall in the bathroom. Was having a hard time finding any I liked at the stores or online. Anyone have something that worked well for them, and didn't fall out during transit? I had one last year I had mounted under a cabinet and of course the first weekend with my new crappie pole fell off and broke!   Figured I'd see if anyone had any advice on what worked well for them. Thanks in advance!!
