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.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .
