"That's life, that's what people say.

Riding high in April, shot down in May."

Or should it say riding high on Tuesday, shot down on Wednesday.

Hopefully this will be a wake up call to all the Twink fans that have really been crowing and just salivating waiting for Liriano to return.

A little shout out to Pier, "Is he really injured or is he just using it as an excuse for a poor performance like "Bobbi Jinx"? Not too funny when the shoe is on the other foot, eh, Pier?

Just a little payback from the baseball Gods to all you Twinkie fans who may have started the celebration dance at the 5 yard line and got the ball smacked out of your outstretched hand by some defensive back. You guys may end up getting to the dance but I would tread very carefully on the celebration dances. And YOU CAN PUT THAT ONE ON THE BOARD...YES! Windy

HUH?......a poor performance?.. bad anology.... never said it was funny just corrected your flawed data, your mocking a pitcher who is really hurt and can't pitch, BJ is pitching and has said he's OK...

Go Twinkies..... grin.gif

Where the heck is Jim been Windy? tell him we all said HI... grin.gif

And we all know that player's never lie about being hurt right, Pier? The guy saves 40 games this year, blows two all year, blows two in the same week as his velocity goes from 98-99-100+ down to 91 and you say he is not hurt? Right!

Too bad about Lirai-NO but all teams get injuries, the good ones play through them and I am sure the Twinks can play through this one too, just had to counteract the crowing out there in the land of 10,000 Lakes. Windy

I just have one stat I want to share with you that pertains to Liriano. Since he went out with his last injury Aug. 8th the Twins have lead the major leagues in ERA so they will find a way to play through it.

Actually since Liriano went out after that start in August, the Twins have gained 9 games in the standing on the Tigs.

I have confidence in our guys. Santana can win you two and if Radke comes back between him and Bonser we can take another one.

Play through injuries, are you kidding, thats what the Twins have done all year. Proving just how good they are. Hunter-out, Stewart-out, White-out, Lariano-out-out, Radke-out, how many more good players could you have out. Yet they're hanging in. With no excuses. These other teams in this division should be embarrassed that they couldn't pull away from the "make shift gang". Chisox moreso. blush.gif $.02

Not Nuf,

I never said the Twinks didn't have injuries and I have already been on record as saying the Sox have been the most injury free the past two year, but they do have some injuries to some of their key player at the worst time and they are playing through them. Crede (chronic back) Dye (back) Jenks (hip) all in the past two weeks. They have spent some time off but have not went on the DL. Seems like the collective collars are all getting a little tight up in Twinkie-ville at a time when you should be celebrating. The Kitties are the ones who should be sweating right now as the two clouds of dust keep getting closer and closer from the Twin Cities and The Windy City. As for the Sox..we already have the ring on the finger, this year is a bonus!

Buzz,

This was not directed at you, you have maintained a cool head while others around you were losing them. You know that one man does not make a team but others acted like they could get in line for Series tix today after Liria-NO pitched on Wednesday. Pier got under my skin a little by implying that Jenks was not injured when it is obvious he is. I just wanted to bring a little reality back to let everybody know that none of the three teams in this race are perfect and by no means are a lock to win the thing. It is, it has been and it will be an extremely close race with two of these three teams getting to the dance and one going home. Of course, I hope my team is not the one home before curfew and I expect the same from you guys. Windy

Don't be too hard on the wind bag buzz. He's down in the windy city and it's real weird there. I spent the absolute worst 2 years of my life in servitude there and I'm tellin ya, the air there does strange things to your mind. Example, it makes you proud to be Polish, and it makes you put green peppers on your hot dogs.......see what I mean? It's just plain weird there. On top of that the Sux are still a couple games out of even the wild card with absolutely no chance of getting into the post season. This is puttin a lot of stress on Wind bag.

Prolly why thd F.I.B.'s keep comming to Minnesota. Clean air and better baseball. grin.gif

Agreed, I figured for the last week or two, like many Twins fans, that the Twins and Chisox can and will pass by the Tigers.

Windy,

We sure missed you yesterday. It is good to see things getting better for you. Your Sox won and you got your computer fixed. (Sarcasm really starts here) I am sure it was killing you yesterday that you could not discuss the Sox spanking, Jenks loss and the Twinks comeback with us. But thank God you got you PC fixed in time to discuss Garcia's gem and the Twins misfortunes of yesterday.

twins loss + white sox win = post by windy

I thought most of us figured that out already

windy in all kidding aside, I know you mean no harm. If anything we are all getting to watch great baseball and a I hope its a sprint to the finish with the best team coming out on top.

The spin and logic you have really leaves me scratching my head sometimes though.

I still like our team better than the Sox this year.

Our lineup, although low-paid and unrecognized, is leading the league in team batting average. The middle of the lineup with 3. Mauer-batting leader, 4. Cuddyer - 100 rbi, 25hr guy, 5. Morneau - possible MVP, and 6. Hunter 25 hr, 80 rbis, has some punch.

Even through injuries this team has shown resiliance. We will be there at the end. The last series should be a good one. I actually think it will be for the division title, not the WC.

You won't have to worry 'bout no Muslims Buzz.

Got this one a coupla days ago and likes it:

>Subject: playing with cowboys

Three strangers strike up a conversation in the airport passenger lounge in Midland, Texas, awaiting their flights. One is an American Indian passing through from Lame Deer. Another is a Cowboy on his way to Houston for a livestock show and the third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly arrived at Texas State University from the Middle East.

Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull. The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table and tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face. The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old windsock is flapping; but still no plane comes.

Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly he speaks,"At one time here, my people were many, but sadly, now we are few."

The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward, "Once my people were few," he sneers, "and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?"

The West Texas cowboy shifts his toothpick to one side of his mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a drawl, "That's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, but I do believe it's a-comin'."

well, back at ya! tongue.gif

Two Arabs boarded a flight out of London. One took a window seat and the

other sat next to him in the middle seat.

Just before takeoff, a Marine sat down in the aisle seat. After takeoff,

the Marine kicked his shoes off, wiggled his toes and was settling in

when the Arab in the window seat said, "I need to get up and get a

coke."

"Don't get up," said the Marine, "I'm in the aisle seat, I'll get it for

you."

As soon as he left, one of the Arabs picked up the Marines shoe and spat

in it.

When the Marine returned with the coke, the other Arab said, "That looks

good, I'd really like one, too." Again, the Marine obligingly went to

fetch it. While he was gone the other Arab picked up the Marines other

shoe and spat in it. When the Marine returned, they all sat back and

enjoyed the flight. As the plane was landing, the Marine slipped his

feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened. "Why does

it have to be this way?" he asked the two Arabs. "How long must this go

on?

This fighting between our nations? This hatred? This animosity? This

spitting in shoes and peeing in cokes?

THE MARINES WILL ALWAYS WIN!

      We survived our trip!  LOL   Fishing was steady.   We caught 30 walleyes in 3 days of fishing.  Usually fished from 11 am to 4 pm.  The 'eyes were running small, lots of 11 to 13 3/4" fish, but we did get 3 keepers.  We also kept a few nice perch and crappies.  We also caught a few snake northerns.   Jigging w/ chubs produced the best, but I did catch a few 'eyes on the crawler lindy rig combo.  Mid lake structure and underwater points off of islands all produced fish.  Mayflys were hatching, but the fish were still hungry. I did catch a 4-5 lb channel cat in the Savanna River one evening.   We stayed in the south loop of the Army Corp campground.  We liked that we were w/in about 30 yds of our boat which we kept at the dock.  The river on the north side of us and the lake on the south side offered a nice breeze to keep things cool and the bugs away for the most part.  Con's were the campsites are small and were too close together.  Also no turn around at the end of the south loop road.  The north loop was beautiful, spacious campsites, but surrounded by swamp and we heard the skeeters were bad at dusk.  Definitely want some thermacells or a screen tent to enjoy the evening by the sounds of things.  Also the docks aren't close/in view of the campsites.   We would definitely stay there again, on the north loop, in May or Sept. after the skeeters have died down a bit.   Staff was friendly, shower houses were nice, boat landings were nice.     Brian

      Just got back from our 34th annual Grand Marais trip. Weather, and how bad it was, was the theme. At one point or another, it rained every single day we were there! The wind was miserable he last couple days as well. Really affected our fishing plans, as we had to cancel out on some of our normal lakes, and fish some less than desirable backup lakes.   As per tradition, we left in the middle of the night and pulled up to the Lester River just a few minutes before sunrise. Didn't catch anything there. Also got skunked at the Talmadge and French rivers. I got free admission at Tom's logging camp on account it was Father's Day  and as always, kids had fun feeding the animals. I did catch a few little rainbows out of sucker, knife, and Stewart rivers. Had our traditional "fisherman's breakfast" at McDonalds in Two Harbors. We stopped at the silver creek tunnel, and that was the first time I've been at the overlook since it was actually part of the highway back in '94. We rolled into Grand Marais at about 3:30 and had to wait out a rain storm before putting the boat out on Kimball Lake. We lost several trout, and in the end, only my 6 year old son caught 2 rainbows.   Monday we fished Greenwood Lake, and as was the case with my 2 older kids, my 3 year old daughter caught her very first fish here...a smallmouth bass! Between all of us, we caught about 130 bass, all of which were pretty small. Unfortunately no lake trout. However, a big surprise occurred...while casting for bass, I caught a herring! Then a few minutes later, my son caught one also! Never would have guessed I'd ever catch one in the summer, let alone 2!   Fished a "secret lake" on Tuesday and caught quite a few northerns. They were all either 5 pounds, or 6 inches long, nothing in between. My son caught an 8 pound, 33 incher, which ended up being the biggest fish of the trip. We was screaming, and excited, and wanted me to take his fishing pole. But after about 10 minutes he finally got it in so I could net it. He's still bragging about it. My 3 year old also caught her 2nd ever fish, a perch, which ended up being the only one of the trip.   Went up to Saganaga on Wednesday. I spent I don't know how many hours trying to catch lake trout, but didn't find any!  Finally gave up and ventured deep into red rock bay for the first time ever. Really nice back there, wish I would've went there first. Fishing was ok, considering the weather was starting to get bad. Caught the biggest bass of the trip, a hair over 18 inches. On the drive back we seen a bear. Ironically it was walking down the road to black bear lodge at Poplar Lake.   Biggest disappointment came on Thursday. The plan was to fish both Hungry Jack and West Bearskin lakes. The wind was terrible, and coming straight from the west. Had hungry jack not had the reputation as a big bass producer, I wouldn't have went here. Unfortunately the big bass weren't around, nor any bass for that matter. Only caught 4 small bass. Kids caught about a dozen or so sunnies from the dock at the resort, some of which were decent size. We didn't even bother with bearskin. There's no way we would be able to launch our boats in that wind. We went to Loon Lake instead. In the limited time we were there, we caught about 30 tiny bass. My 9 year old daughter also caught her first rock bass. I tried for lakers, and marked a lot of them, but didn't catch any.    So since we didn't fish West Bearskin as planned, we penciled it in for Friday. Knowing the weather was going to be bad, we picked Poplar Lake as our backup. I drove up to Mayhew Lake to start, because I wanted to check out the launch. I was able to get my boat down the launch, but it was a real tight fit. Nice little lake. We saw a mommy moose with 2 babies laying right on the shoreline. I got sick of trolling, so I decided to cast cranks along the drop offs of the one small stretch of shoreline that was out of the wind (relatively speaking). Hooked into a big fish! Got excited because I thought I finally had a lake trout! It was a northern!  never thought I'd be disappointed in catching a 5.5 pound pike, but that's what I was. Didn't bother going to Bearskin, as I knew the wind was too bad again. Went to Poplar, which is a lake I do not like! As is typical, the fishing was no good! He weather was bi polar! It would be bright and sunny, then rain for 20 minutes. Did that the whole rest of the day! Only caught 1 little pike and  1 little bass. Got excited for a minute, as whitefish started surfacing around my boat in the evening. I was hoping I could catch 1 or 2, but nope!    Saturday we were supposed to fish Two Island for a few hours before going home. But it was pouring rain. We didn't even bother driving around to different boat launches. So the trip ended on a sour note, but we still had lots of fun, seen a moose, had our donuts (I highly recommend the bacon maple longjohn by the way), and went to Sven & Ole's. I was going to go camping in Ely in July, but I think we'll come back to Grand Marais instead, and try to make up for what we missed out on due to the weather. IMG_6122.MOV

      I have not been on Rainy much as of late. On June 12, I got 75 walleyes in about 6-8 FOW. On. June 15 (Sanctuary opener) I hit Stangi for several hours and only got four fish. June 17, got 20 fish in about five hours - mostly walleyes on a weed edge in about 8 feet of water. Many on jig with Lunker CIty trailers. Also some good ones on a feather jig. Bass were few and far between. Plus some pike but nothing huge. Biggest walleyes 24-25". Bass 18", pike 29". View my fishing report to see videos of lures that were working.   I did mark lots of fish in deeper water but they were dink walleyes so I did not fish them for long.The dinks are actually harder to catch on lures than bigger ones. They respond better to live bait which I don't use.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
