Also the baseball trade deadline is in 30 minutes.

BigT2002 07-31-2013 02:51 PM

Morneau not been traded?

Jarick 07-31-2013 02:53 PM

Another interesting article about Percy, gets a little conspiratorial, but I think the point about the decision to trade him in December is pretty astute.

Nope and he likely won't be.
His lack of production, especially this month has killed his value.
Butera sent to the Dodgers for the ever popular player to be named later.

Oh yeah, MN represent.

Parise, Oshie, Backes, Big Buff, Stepan, Martin, McDonagh, Faulk. EDIT: Add, Johnson^2, Wheeler, Okposo, Leddy.

Not all of these boys are locks for the roster, though most are. I think Big Buff may be the odd man out and the rest get in, Faulk may also not make it.

Drew Butera is the big trade. Heads to LA for a PTBNL...

Dr Jan Itor 07-31-2013 04:00 PM

Don't knock the PTBNL, it could literally be anybody.

Dodgers overpaid. Did their starting Bat Boy go down with an injury and need replacing?

interesting article about harvin there.

Too bad anybody isn't a boat.

They could be.

Heard we were getting Puig, Kershaw and Kemp. Possibly acquiring Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford so long as the Dodgers retain >half their contracts. Pretty solid deal.

Mansfield 08-09-2013 07:15 PM

good start ponder

00xtremeninja 08-09-2013 07:34 PM

Why is cassell not your starter. Ponder blooows

Mansfield 08-09-2013 07:46 PM

gotta admit cassel has looked pretty good so far. but ponder still has more upside I guess...but yeah if he does't grab it this season imo we may well see cassel

BigT2002 08-10-2013 09:13 AM

Ponder will not be the starter by Week 3 if Frazier isn't going to let him play and make corrections in game. What a joke of a coach.

Sharppi 08-10-2013 09:15 AM

Cassel looked very Cassel. Patterson looked very awesome.

well it's only week 1 of preseason. most starters didn't do more than a couple drives

2 Plays though? Really? For someone who desperately needs to work on his mechanics and in-game decision making? The 2nd pass was an INT. That alone warranted his ass to go back out there for another series at the very least. I'm all for not needing to play the all stars and such, but our QB was the reason we lost to Green Bay during the regular season, which was completely Ponder's fault. And why we lost in the playoffs after Ponder couldn't play and Webb had essentially never played a down the entire season because we were never ahead by enough to allow it.

00xtremeninja 08-10-2013 09:49 AM

Ponder will get more time next week, but I also will be surprised to see if the Vikes keep him as a starter the entire season.

Wild48 08-10-2013 10:32 AM

this overreacting to a preseason game is hilarious.

Ponder's game last night probably cost us 3 super bowls.

00xtremeninja 08-10-2013 10:48 AM

you did watch him play last year too right? I am not about to jump on a guy because of one preseason game and only two snaps, but he sucks. Matty C would be the only qb to keep this team competitive.

Wonder if Greg Jennings was scoreboard watching the GB/AZ game. He seems to still be in love with his old team. They did brainwash him after all, lol

The fact that Ponder only had about 900 more yards PASSING than Peterson had rushing is all I need to base judgement that he needs to make the most out of the games that mean very little to the team. Cassel has already proven himself as a QB in the NFL. Ponder hasn't. For someone that is supposed to be your starting QB, you would want him to go to Frazier and demand to be out there for another series or two.

Ponder has done nothing to earn the 'one series and done' preseason game, even if it was the 1st. He should be playing 1 quarter (or 3-4 series) minimum in all 4 games.
