Zam-Bran-Uh OH !

Geno,

Your lack of confidence in your Cubbies seems to be paying off nicely! Your non-bet on the avatar looks pretty sweet. Maybe the Cubbies can get swept and then Lou can have a well rested Carlos Zam-bran-Uh OH pitch Sunday against Ronnie Woo Woo and 8 "fellas" up there in boys town! LMAO

Nice game of non-managing by Sweet Lou.

1 for 10 with runners in scoring position is the reason for the Cubs demise. I thought Zambrano didn't pitch bad plus he can rake at the plate...

Windy, gotta know when to hold 'em and fold 'em, right?

Not going to believe this, but I didn't watch.

But tonight I hope to stay up for it.

Yes, 1 for 10 w RISP is the story.

Against a not-so-bad pitcher - so kudos to him.

Here's my take on the game.

Z should have either been lifted in the top of the 6th for a pinch hitter with the bases loaded and two outs OR they should have pitched him at least another inning since his pitch count was only at 85. I know Marmol has been Da Man for the last few months but why did you pony up 91 Large to Z if you were not going to ride that horse? Bad percentage moves by Sweet Lou. Z did his thing and did not implode but it looked like Lou was focusing more on Game 4 than on Game 1 ! (note to Lou....THERE MAY NOT BE A GAME 4)

All in all when your top 5 hitters go 1 for 22 you are not going to do much in the game unless your bottom is on Fiy-Ya.

They better get their acts together tonight or Wiggly Field will be very clean come Sunday morning as the D-Backs sweep the Cubbie out of the playoffs!

Windy are you psychic as well as psychotic?

From what I have seen so far in the playoffs after a small sampling barring a Cleveland loss at home, the two best teams in the A.L. are the Indians and Red Sox. The Red Sox are playing well enough to beat up and injured and haggled Angels squad and the Spankee's hopes rest on Pettite tonight. While in Rocky Mania home of the Triple A Smokies they are rolling up some fat numbers on floundering Phil's.

So I will have to reevaluate my playoff predictions because as most we underestimated some clubs.

Colorado vs. Arizona (Battle of the N.L. West)

Red Sox vs. Indians (It's funny you can add the payroll of all three teams together and be short of the Red Sox)

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
