I think he will find another job, perhaps not for the same kind of money but not the same kind of pressure either..

thanks Joe. Making the yankees look foolish taking days to decide if they want him only to have him turn them down. you have deserved the right to walk away on your own.

I can't wait for the big George to trot out Tony LaRussa as their next manager and watch him totally tank in NYC!

Nice move, Mr. Torre.

Windy - Tony will not take that job, he hates the media period., and would not last a day in NY. Duncan is still with the Cards for another season and they are going to pay Tony what he wants, with the signings of Izzy, Pinero and Springer it shows that were not dismantling but reloading, Eckstein is next and look for the Cards to add a quality starter in the off season. Anthony Reyes game 2 winner in last years world series is probably gone... With a healthy Rolen and the youngsters Ryan and Shoe getting alot of experience we will be just fine next season... I would like them to add another power type guy for left field, I think Encarnacion may be done.. Maybe from left to right Ludwick, Ankiel and Duncan...

CNY,

I was hoping you would chime in on this. This is just the skinny that we are hearing here in the Windy, that George has Tony in his sites as a back up plan to Torre. I fully agree, NYC would chew up Tony, the fans and media are no where near as accomodating as the Redbird clan. I would hate to see that happen to him, I used to like him a ton but some of the shine is off the rose with his run ins this year. Still would hate to see him take that bite of the big apple.

LaRusssa should be signing a 3 year deal with St. Louis very shortly according to Peter Gammons wink.gif

I just dont understand what the yanks were thinking when they didnt get torre to come back. I mean, look at the guys stats. That just says it all there. I know they were talking that all they want to do is win World Series. Well think of this for a min.

Jow coached them for the last 12 years, and was in the playoffs all 12 years, you cant tell me that there is a better coach out there that has done that for a ball club. Ya i understand that they have to most money spent then god, but come on, the guy knows how to handle is players, and how to get a ball club to the playoffs.

Im not a yank fan at all, but they was a joke how they handle that mess.

CNY,

The man in the know down in Arch Town. Tony the Tiger inks a 2 year deal with the Red Birds. Now who is Georgie Porgie going to convince to run the nut house in New York?

Look for the youth movement to continue in NY with Joe Giradi at the helm...

Windy - Rumour has it the Cards interviewed the White Sox assistant GM for the Cards vacant GM position cool.gif They should have the positon filled some time prior to the end of the world series...

Listening to LaRussa's press conference the Rolen/LaRussa discontent is still there. It seem's the more Tony p.o.'s Scott the better he plays, hey whatever works. Hopefully him and Jimmy can play healthy next season but I know Mulder and Carp need to be healthy and solid for us to make another run...

I'm a little late chiming in on this, i've been m i a for a few days. I have to agree with mike and mike in the morning and some other guys that the Yankees offered this assuming/hoping he would reject this offer. They couldn't not offer him something since 12 straight years in the playoffs but its been too long with out the big win for Stienbrenner. The yankees are just saving face and Torre doesn't need the money. I don't think we will see Torre again until 2009 if ever.

      Just talked to a buddy with an Ultera issue. He damaged the belt when he secured the motor head to his boat using a ram mount. Others I talked to said keep an eye on the belt tension. It is adjustable with an allen wrench.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

        Ya, I Was corrected already. Sorry.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
