Twins in first...can they stay there?

Recommended Posts

I think they can. Would be good to be up a couple games on the Sox when the Yankees roll into town though. Should be a fun couple months!

I think it will be very difficult with the amount of road games we have at the end of the season!

Those darn Republican's ruin everything they touch!... grin

Something like 30 games against teams under .500. 9 against SEA and 3 against Oak. Mix in 3 left with Cle and KC.

They have a more favorable schedule left then Chi even if there are a lot on the road.

They are playing great ball. I do think they have a chance too. The Sox get Junior and they go 1-3 in KC, OUCH! And they give up 14 runs, Ozzie looks like he is going to have another melt down. grin

Ozzie has been having a melt down every game of late.

He is a terrible coach, got lucky when they won the series and now chicago with a roller coaster ride with more valleys than peaks.

To me, its a good thing they do not have a real coach. Because they could me doing what the cubbies are doing with a real coach.

I predict that the southsiders and going the way of their skipper who acts like the back end of a donkey. They've pretty much overachieved. The Twins have an easier schedule the rest of they but they've proved over time that they play down to competition like the Vikings so it will be an interesting race. My only hope is that the decision will come on the last day when I'm on my way home from up north as it did two years ago.

As much as I like the team, and I want to say they can stay in 1st for the long run, there is a lot of season left, almost 2 months and my brain is saying......

"Negative ghost rider. The pattern is full..."

Just too young IMO.

Sutre they have a chance. No one gave them a chance to this point abd look wear they are today. I'm a believer in the Twins.

Morneau goes 0-ffer in the RBI department for the series and they STILL win it. One more reason that this is one of those freaky seasons where the Twinkies continue to pull it out of their backsides.

I'm a believer. Especially with Mr. Wicked Slider back in the line up. It may not be as fast, but that thing still has some moves.

Just my opinion, I think Ozzie is good for baseball. These players get paid bukoo bucks to play and Oz calls them out when they are not performing. A mlb lineup is pretty much set up by teams GM. The manager writes a line up card that is given to him. There is not a lot of coaching in mlb that changes wins/losses. It's about how players are playing.

I like Ozzie too ... he is good for baseball.

As for the Twins -- I M afraid it all comes down to injuries and the kids.

If Justin or Joe goes down, I M guessing it is all over.

Who knows, maybe DY will figure out how to work the count and get a fastball. I hate to sound like Bert, but it all does come down to pitching -- if we can pitch we will win. If we can't we won;t.

    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
    • Maybe, We have some of that disease in the family. I'm of the opinion that if you are diabetic the kind of beer you should drink is NO BEER. 
    • Not if you're diabetic.
    • Anyone here have any experience with keeping and using pigeons, especially homers, for dog training?   I have an almost 2 year old Brittany that has not even been out hunting yet.... Last fall he was pretty young yet plus I had some health issues that kept me unable to walk around the woods or fields.   I'm not trying to turn my dog into some kind of world champion hunter or anything. I just want to be able to spend more time, all year long as opposed to only hunting season,  doing the thing he loves to do the most. We already have a great time on a daily basis playing an endless game of fetch and he is the most prolific tennis ball catcher (after one bounce) that I have ever seen. He also spends his days chasing rabbits, birds and squirrels in our fenced in yard along with lounging in his very own pool on hot days. He is trained to do all the normal things like sit, lay, shake, come, etc and I have no doubt that he has lots of natural hunting instinct so this seems to be where the progression of his training should head.   I do live in town but as long as I'm not keeping dozens of birds at one time, I don't think it will be an issue. I will check with the city before proceeding though. I'm thinking of getting about 6 homing pigeon squeakers and keeping them in a hutch in my yard. Is there any problem with the birds being in the same yard as the dog?   I'm thinking I could go out to the country on any given day and plant a few birds for my dog to sniff out. I have access to private property to do this on but I am wondering, is it legal to do this on wildlife management areas? I think I recall that after a certain date it is OK to train dogs?   Anyone else do this? Any advice?
