Knife for Boof

Recommended Posts

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....

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
