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)

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
