    snepp reacted to stringer bell in Gophers Football   
    Each remaining regular season game brings its own challenges including playing in an obvious trap game at Northwestern. I'd love to see an undefeated Gopher team take on an undefeated Ohio State for the B1G championship, but it will take considerable focus and improvement by an already good football team to get there.
     
    As a Gopher football fan since the days of Bobby Bell and the Minneapolis Star Sports Peach, this is tremendous fun. I don't want the ride to end.

    BTW, the oldest person in American is 114, so there isn’t a person in the country that was alive the last time the Gophers were 9-0.

    Best non playoff sporting event I have ever attended. What did you think of the atmosphere as a casual fan? To me outdoor sports (Twins baseball and Gopher football) are the games to be at in person. Cannot do indoor football or baseball even with our chilly springs and falls.

    No - his value is at Catcher.  He gives us an advantage over other teams at that position and he has worked hard to improve his defense there.  He has had one really good season there in MLB - give him a few more.
     
    If you want to find someone to fill a position, 1B is a lot easier than Catcher.  In two years our minor league catchers will be pushing to take over, let the process play out.

    (True Story)
     
    Back in May of  2016... Brian Dozier was looking absolutely horrible (along with the entire team) but Dozier was capable of so much more. His extended slump had brought his batting average below .200 and I couldn't tolerate it anymore so the only thing I posted on Twinsdaily was something like: "BRIAN DOZIER -- FIX HIM!!!"  
     
    The next day, Terry Ryan talks to the press and he is quoted saying... "We've got to FIX him". 
     
    Dozier was benched the next day... for like a day and then he went on a home run tear... Hit like 80 home runs from June to September. 
     
    Your Welcome everyone.
     
    I did that.

    snepp reacted to Vanimal46 in Front Page: How Will the Twins Replace Jason Castro this Offseason?   
    My hope is they replace Castro with... Jason Castro. It's imperative to have a solid backup to split time with Garver, or take over full time if injuries play out that way.
     
    We seem to forget that Garver has a history of concussions and one more foul tip to the dome could force him out of the position.

    people feel Castro was the better hitter because Castro had both a higher OBP and a higher SLG. 
    If there's a bias, IMO it's a bias towards Astudillo, not against him.

    Maybe it just means Grossman's fielding looked like it was attempted while he wore an *actual* glove made of gold?

    And he was really, really good, IMO. Funny, insightful, not inclined to talk too much.
     
    It was only a couple games I heard, but I bet He'd be a great choice for Twins broadcasts. And they need a new color guy.

    Whenever a business decides to do this, it's prudent to have a tranquilizer handy, for there is safety in numb bears.

    First pitch looks promising. And the second. Let him continue as long as he's able.
