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.

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.

      Managed a 17 and 22 incher while slip bobbering with leeches on a 21 foot reef. Hope the success continues.

      Looks like weather has finally calmed down.  Are they getting fish on the riggers also?
    • JBMasterAngler
      I don't. However, in the rare instance that I'm not catching trout near the surface, I'll use small flicker shads or shad raps.

      Been working on the double and triple retrieves. Finn is starting to get the bumper I send him to get, but he likes to get the closest one.

      A portion of one of the last and largest wooded areas in Dakota County has been permanently protected as a state wildlife management area through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Dakota County and the nonprofit conservation group Friends of the Mississippi River.  Photo courtesy of Tom Reiter for Friends of the Mississippi River The new Hampton Woods Wildlife Management Area consists of 191 acres of oak forest that will be managed by the DNR for wildlife habitat and public hunting. Located about four miles east of Farmington off state Hwy. 50, it’s the only forest for miles around in a largely agricultural landscape. The area is home to a number of rare species such as the red-shouldered hawk, as well as more common game species including deer, turkeys and squirrels. Each spring, the forest floor blossoms with wildflowers. First identified by the DNR as an ecologically significant area worthy of protection in the mid-1990s, Hampton Woods also was ranked highly in Dakota County’s 2002 Farmland and Natural Areas Protection Plan. A few years ago, Friends of the Mississippi River helped several landowners contact the county to discuss the potential sale of their land. After purchasing 24 acres from Joan Uselmann and Mary and Glen Bakalars, and 167 acres from the estate of Rose Kuntz, Dakota County recently transferred ownership to the DNR. “This is a beautiful area of Dakota County that will now be preserved and publicly accessible for future generations,” said Dakota County Board of Commissioners Chairman Mike Slavik, who represents the district where the new WMA is located. “Many people and organizations made this possible, and we are very thankful for their many contributions and collaboration.” DNR regional wildlife manager Cynthia Osmundson praised the partnership that protected the area. “This new WMA is especially important because it not only protects an important and relatively rare forest area, it also provides close-to-home public hunting opportunities in the metro region,” she said. “Transactions like this can be complex and drawn out, and we’re very fortunate to have good partners like Dakota County and Friends of the Mississippi River.” The acquisition was paid for with $540,800 from the Outdoor Heritage Fund, as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature, and $197,700 in Dakota County funds. The Outdoor Heritage Fund was created in 2008 when Minnesota voters passed a constitutional amendment dedicating a portion of sales taxes to restore, protect, and enhance fish and wildlife habitat. Friends of the Mississippi River also has received a $133,000 grant from the Environment and Natural Resource Trust Fund, as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources, to conduct management activities in the WMA, such as removal of non-native invasive species like buckthorn. Friends of the Mississippi River previously developed a natural resource management plan for the site with financial assistance from the Minnesota Ornithologists’ Union, Southern Dakota County Sportsmen’s Club, Wild Turkey Federation, Hastings Environmental Protectors, Winter Wheat Foundation, and Pheasants Forever – Dakota Ringnecks Chapter.

      Was up Tuesday until this morning (Frazer / Smart Bay) and wow was the walleye fishing slow for me. Was out Wednesday / Thursday mornings from 7:30-10:00 ish and nary a walleye bite in all my usual spots. Tried a bit in the afternoons as well, but not too serious.    Hope everyone else is having better luck!!

      Getting these big fish back in the water as soon as possible is important in summer heat.

      Thanks guys! JB-how do you get the Mepps down deep?

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.
