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.

Anyone else predict one year off and he will put on about 40 lbs?

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....

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
