Boofs Weight

Recommended Posts

Guess when Boof got to camp all the other players could hardly recognize him- he lost 30 lbs in the offseason. I think Boof should be the ace for a season and see what happens.

I like boof. Did a great job two seasons ago, then last season kind of had a few problems. hopefully he can turn it around. I really like the way he goes after hitters.

BOOOOOF - hopefully he can keep it together and not wear out late in games...maybe the loss of weight will help towards his stamina.

i think hes going to have a great season. The man is commited to the game of baseball, any by getting into shape, is only going to help him out.

Loosing 30lbs will help his stamina. Hopefully he can keep the weight off as the season progresses - hard to do when you travel a lot.

Eating Fruits?

I thought you were talking about some of the Cubbies up in "Boys Town". They eat a lot of fruits up there, right GENO??? LOL

I ran into Boof a couple weeks ago at a baseball convention, and he probably lost more than that. He is thin.

I sure hope the loss of weights doesn't take away from his velocity...

According to today ST. Paul PP, he has added velocity.

Yes, hopefully Boof can regain the form he showed in the second half of 06. He was a solid starter usually good for 7 strong innings during that time.

I like his stuff, he has a great curveball and throws fairly hard. He also seems to go right at hitters and when he is on, that's a good thing. He has high strikeout rates. Hopefully this weight loss helps him stay consistent and he can have a breakout year, cause if he doesn't, there are lots of young pitcher in our system right now that want a shot.

You have to root for a guy like Boof. I think he will become the pitcher he was meant to be.

Like --

4.15 ERA 14 wins and 170 Ks.

That is not Santana-Like but very solid for any team's Number 3 starter -- maybe outside shot at 3.35 17 wins and 200 Ks -- certainly possible -- nice number 2 starter.

He did tire a lot as he entered the third and fourth innings -- that boy can sweat with the best of them -- even in KC in April.

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.
