Scott Rolen gone to Toronto in exchange for Troy Glaus. Gonna miss Scott's defense. Now what to do with his jersey sick.gif

I wish there was something that could be done with those jerseys. You feel dirty wearing them when the player leaves the team, unless they were a legend like Garnett with the Wolves. I'm keeping my Santana jersey though!

No kidding on Rolen. A year removed from earning his 7th gold glove.

CNY,

What is up with that? I have always thought pretty highly of Rolen and Glaus has never really done much for me. Put it this way, if I had my choice of the two to don a Pale Hose jersey I would go with Rolen and if I had the choice of the two up to bat in a game winning situation I would go Rolen every time. Maybe some of the "stat rats" out there will prove me wrong as I have not compared the two. Just my initial blush on the situation.

Just from what I've heard in the press, I think it's more about attitude. Rolen caused some problems in the clubhouse with his fights with LaRusa. HEY, he would fit in with the White Sox!

Windy,

I thought you thought that Crede is the best 3rd bagger to ever lace up spikes for the WSox?

GO PACK!

Geno,

You're right on that matter, I was just comparing the two that CNY was talking about. I would take Crede over Hack Wilson and Ron Santo! LOL

So are you guys going to keep dumping millions on broken down 40 year old retread pitchers???

Didn't Jon Leiber pitch for the Cubbies in the 70's or was it the 80's!!!

Hugs and Kisses Geno

Well I'd say it's step back as far as defense but Rolen's health has been an issue and it may be his last stop in Toronto before he hangs it up same with Edmonds going to San Diego. Loook for Encarnacion to medically retire as well. I'll never forget that foul ball that caught himsquare in the eye. Just hoping he will be able to have some of his vision if not all back for the 09 season. We signed another pitcher Matt Clement and he's coming off rehab so will see how he he fairs. Mulder will be back before Carp.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
