Home Run Johan?

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

Kinda has a nice ring to it doesn't it? Seriously, I think Johan has taken over Brad Radke's role of giving up the long ball. I know he's still a very good pitcher our offense has sucked this year, but if Johan would learn to keep the ball inside the park, he'd probably be approaching 20 wins and another Cy Young award right now.

Wow,

Throwing the Great One under the bus! I know things have sunk to an all time low in Twinkie-land now. I guess misery loves company, now I don't feel too bad here in the Windy City as I watch my beloved Pale Hose continue their "suck fest" of 07!

Johan said the other day that he would rather give up solo homers then having players on base. He has not been his normal self this whole year.

We can take him off your hands guys. I'm sure Kenny Williams would send you Juan Uribe, Ryan Buckvich and Joe Crede and a $100 Gift Card to Star Bucks. Sound like a plan?

Don't even think about sending him to the windy city. Send him to the Motor City. Our starters are really struggling.

Did you read his post guys.

All he did was state the obvious.

If he wasn't leading the Major Leauges in Home Runs allowed he would have another Cy Young on the mantel.

Pretty simple really.

Unfortunately you guys wasted to much on Buelre and won't be able to afford 22 million plus for 4 or 5 years on Santana.

Hunter maybe...

Just check your 2008 Early Edition schedule that will come out during Fan Appreciation Weekend for when the Yankees come to town. Probably your only opportunity to see Spidey roaming HumphreyDump's center field. Repeat for 2009 to possibly catch the reincarnation of CyTana.

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

      Had great fishing out from McKinley in 28 FOW on Friday-Saturday.  Caught a great mix of dinks, eaters, and slot fish.  I ended up catching five 22-25" walleyes, but my guest on Saturday (Chris Larson) caught the largest at 25½".  Best action was using a chub on a plain hook, but small jigs and rattlers also had action.  Walleyes still didn't like the sucker minnows. I had 8½" of ice where I was (was 6½" the previous week).  But be very careful out there because there are bad spots as people have mentioned.

      Anybody walking out yet? Preferably would like to know Glenwood side..

      Just want to put this out early... hoping to keep up on the ice conditions along the north shore of superior from Duluth N. 2 1/2 hr drive is a bit far to check ice. Thanks for all the help from people in the area.
