Kubel

40 posts in this topic

Kubel hits for the cycle tonight!! What a game. Bullpen was terrible, but the bats came alive. Twins score 7 runs in the 8th inning when they were down 9-4.

about time, they've been terrible after 5 or 6 innings the last few games and tonight the bats got it rolling at the end! Fun win for the Twins!

It's worse than last year...did the Twins just pick-up an arm yesterday or something. Saw the last 2 innings last night and after the game they showed Gardy down in the bullpen talking to someone throwing...?

WHAT! THEY WON!!!!???? Your kidding me! I shut the tv off and went to sleep after the bullpens performance in the 7th and it was 9-4. I haven't heard "booing" from the fans like that for Crane since Ron Davis use to pitch for the Twins!

Way to go Kubes!

A new addition to the "Twins Classic games" on FSN!

Twins cut Humber. He has to clear waivors before he can report to AAA. Twins picked up another pitcher, I believe from Colorado, can't remeber the name though.

I shut it off in the 7th last night thinking they were toast. Then a few minutes ago I checked the Twins HSOforum and just about fell out of my chair! Way to go Kubel. Much better player than Cuddyer, why not lock him in? Bullpen is a disaster though. If the Twins want to contend they'll have to do much better.

I watched the last 3 innings and it was a fun game. It will be tough for Kubel to top this game individually. I knew he had the 1B,2B,3B so when he nailed that one I thought, hey hes the third player to hit for the cycle already.

OF should be Kubel, Span and Cuddyer- left to right. Gomez should be sent down

Kubel is still hot. He is smoking the ball tonight too. I bet the baseball looks like a big beachball to him right now.

You would lose too much defensively with Kubes in there. A spot start every week or so would be fine, but every day would come back to bite them in the arssse. He sure is strokin though!!

I don't think he is a step down from Delmon out in the OF. They are about even, maybe even Kubel is a tad better than Delmon. I have never seen Kubel misplay a ball so bad it had me scratching my head- Delmon has given me a small bald spot on the other hand

haha no... If Kubel loses 25 pounds but anyway he is where he should be. We don't need him out there playing defense, we have the right guys out there playing good defense except for the shaky Delmon Young.

kubel is 8 for 10 in this series. he had a great year last year, now he is showing why he is our DH.

His knees are better off staying on the bench and being our DH. He can flat out hit the ball. What an amazing two games for him.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
