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.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
