Gomez

8 posts in this topic

Now I am not the biggest Delmon fan (you all know this) but I was a little miffed last night when they put Gomez in, and shifted Span over, who was 0 for 4 and yanked Delmon, who was 3 for 4. If anyone was to be yanked, they shoulda pulled Span. Gardenhire makes a few moves that confuses me sometimes. In the 9th after Slowey couldn't finish, he shoulda went Nathan even though not a save situation, go to the sure thing.

Probably wanted better defense since they already had the lead.

Gomez is very young and full of potential. That being said, he needs to work on his game in AAA since we've got it covered up here. Call up Pridie

When the Central standings don't look like the beer league has taken over, the Uncle Rico "mix and match" theory won't go away. Baseball is turning into the NFL: too many teams and not enough talent. I see better attitudes and play at in the town leagues.

It's like Coach Lou Brown once said, "You may run like Mays, but you hit like S*#$!"

It could just be coincidence, but most of the time when I watch Gomez bat, he doesn't even take a full swing. His mind-set seems to be focused more on bunting rather than just hit the ball hard somewhere. I realize with his speed he can bunt for a hit, but that should still be a once in a while thing. And seriously Gomez, you are not good enough to bunt with two strikes. He should expect to get some things said when he does bunt with two strikes and fouls it off, either from teammates, opposing team, or fans. Not that I agree with what Lee did, but in a way he had a point: it was stupid. In Gomez's last at bat he had a nice line drive hit. He took a full swing with the mentality to hit it hard somewhere, hopefully the festivities with Lee will give him a spark from here on out.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
