Hopefully this will provide enough of a spark for them to at least make a push towards the division.

BGreen,

I'm with you on that one. I mean come on, first he loses the perfect with a walk and then the no no to a guy who was walking in cold to pinch hit for his first at bat since June 17th. At least my miserable team can seal the deal when they get close. Mr. Buehrle has his no no in the bank this year. And didn't they turn around and lose the other game 9-4 to KC?

PS: Don't let the Cubs Logo fool you, I have lost a few bets this year to Geno and this is his payback, a week of looking at this God Awful logo instead of my beautiful shiny World Championship ring.

Buehrle's been in the league a few years. So how long did it take for him to throw a prefect game. Wait no-hitter right. 1 World Championship and back to losersville. Over priced team of losers.

Put that in you're pipe and smoke it. Good job Baker.

Always nice to have Windy make a comment. Just like a bad movie critic when Windy talks you know it is just the opposite. A real nice game by Baker. There not easy to come by and he may never get the chance again for a perfect game. What a great experience for a young pitcher. I feel for Redmond, you know he was hoping to be on the receiving end!

only to get outdone by a guy who pitches a no-no in his 2nd mlb start.

I was a wreck watching it, I can't imagine how Baker felt.

And Windy, the Twins lost the first game 9-4. Baker's was the second.

Im sorry to all of you. I took my kid to the game and told her she better be paying attention because she may be watching history. Well ten minutes later you know what happened. Still I think a lot of people there knew in the 3rd inning they were seeing something cool. You could just see he was pitching great and even if it was a onehitter it was a great performance. Thanks scott for giving my daughter and I soemthing to remember for years to come.

Hey don't shoot me, I'm only the Piano Player!

I was just agreeing with on of your own, BGreen. He is from MN, I didn't start the fire, I just brought some extra marshmallows and a stick and sat down with my buddy BGreen for smore's! LOL

Brought my daughter to this game as her first ever baseball game (She is 3). It was a great game to watch. Do you all wanna know what she remembers about it?

"Daddy, we went to a baseball game and saw a BEAR on a 4 WHEELER. THAT IS SILLY!!!"

grin.gif kids!!! grin.gif the bad thing is the first pitch to the guy he walked was a strike called a ball and then the only other pitch he got in that count was in the same spot...not saying he would have had a different outcome but not the time to tighten the zone!! Great game for Baker!!!

It is certainly getting old........

You know the great thing about how poorly the WSox are playing? You just don't hear all that bullcrap on the news all the time about how interesting a player AJ is or how great a manager Ozzie is or what a fantastic GM Kenny Williams is....gag me with a spoon...P-uke!

It's funny...Harrelson still says Uribe is a good shortstop and Reinsdorf has the nerve to grade Ozzie as an 'A'. Hmppf.

Geno,

I guess Jerry was grading on a "curve" eh? I almost wet myself when I heard him shoot out the A. Hard to swallow in the midst of all the garbage on the field this year, not sure Jerry is on the same page of reality as the fans!

Geno,

Today there is talk of a contract EXTENSION for the Wizard of OZ ! Imagine if the Pale Hose were actually North of the Mason/Dixon line this year, we would be looking at Ozzie Jr. running the team in 20 years or so!

Things that make you go, hmmmm!

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you
