It started in spring training, and he tried to say, "don't worry", I'll be better once the season starts.... tired

back to trip A. Our bullpen isnt much better.

Who's up for having Perkins start every game?

Baker and Liriano have been great batting practice pitchers so far. They were supposed to be the 2 studs at the top of the rotation. Baker is probably still injured. Liriano looks fine out there, but grooves a fastball down the pipe at least once each at bat and it is getting drilled by the good hitting teams.

Perk and Blackie are the best we got right now.

dont worry after the all star break the twinks will turn it around, thats what they do if they would have got off to a fast start that might make me worried

Rick Anderson was on the radio today and said Baker is feeling great. Arm isn't tired at all and no soreness......Sounds like it is a confidence thing.

Shouldn't have to wait that long! Shoot it's only been two and a half weeks.

Baker pitched well today and 10Ks is a good sign...Then again, they were playing Cleveland. Hopefully he takes this into his next start.

I'm not or have I been that worried about Baker. Pitchers go through these types of things.

He'll be fine IMO!

Nice game last night, Gardy should have known better than to let him throw the 8th. Although a shutout complete game is nice, you could definitly tell he was gassed. if we scored 10 runs every game we could afford some of the 5 run innings we seem to give up so often.

Good to see Baker on a roll lately.

100 plus in 5 innings and only 1 run to me means a terrible day at the plate for the royals.

Kansas City plays a lot like the Twins - work the pitchers deep into the counts - foul off a lot of pitchs until they get their pitch - try to get the starter out of of there early so they can get to the Twins bullpen. Fortunately, the Twins bullpen held up last night and Nathan is nasty like always.

Yeah...Baker kind of struggled last night, but yet got through five and only gave up one run. When a pitcher can do that on a night without his best stuff, it is good.

Baker and Slowey have come around nicely. If Liriano can get a bit more consistent, and Blackburn and Perkins can be decent at the back of the rotation, the Twins can make a run here in the second half.

But they could still use some bullpen help...

The new guy Keppel sure looks good. Hopefully he can take some of the innings and save the 8th inning boys. smile

If he keeps pitching the way he did last night that would be fine by me!! Or for the last month and a half for that matter.....

    • 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!!
