Goooosssshhh darnit!!!! Here I am checking out posts and stuff, all the while the Twins make a comeback and win! Here it is, end of the 8th, Twins down 1-0 and I leave to check out the forums. And what's worse....my wife doesn't even tell me of the comeback! GRRRRRR!

Oh well, at least they won. Plus, they'll replay it tomorrow so I can set the VCR and record it.

Just a testament to the makeup of this team. The fact that Radke even makes it out there to pitch seems to me beyond the realm of possibility; better yet Radke has a strong outing. I don't even want to hear anybody try to minimize his effort because we are playing the Royals. You know Radke would have pitched left-handed if that's what it would have come to.

DOwn here in IOwa-- the games don't come in so well, especially late in the year with the loss of daylight, but tonight was a treat laying on the couch listning to CCO' and Gordo. Even after Hudson pitched lights out for 7 innings,(don't let anybody tell you the Royals are a bad team, they have a better record since the ALL Star break then the freakin CARDS)) you had a idea the TWins would still win. Even more so when Rincon got out of bases loaded, NO OUTs , jam in the top of the 9th.

I have heard GORDO call many big wins for the TWINS... --- PIERsynski's insurance shot agst the A's in 02',, Guzman's BUNT HR IN 2003, but last night's call with that high pitched voice going totally nuts with Mauers' HR, was the best so far. Hopefully he's got a few more in the postseason--- Here's a DRIVE,,, LEFT FIELD,, IT's GOT CHANCE---- (Gladden in the background going,, "GET UP- GET UP!!!)) GONE.... HR JOE MAUER!!!!! OHHH MYY!!! TOUCH' EM ALL!!!!! JOE MAUER!!!

One of most spectacular comebacks in sports history--- even if the Twins do nothing in the playoffs. They have passed the World Champs who they trailed by 10 games in June and tied the run-away train who some people thought would win close to 110 games. All this with one stud Starting pitcher and a makeshift rotation that includes guys that started the season in A ball or AA. AWESOME!!!!

I was crying "FOUL" last night. Twins get two on and KC walks the next guy to load 'em up for the number nine hitter. Looking decent. I go to the stats and the guy has a .313 average!!! That's not fair. My tigers don't have a .313 anywhere in the order and you guys got one batting ninth.

Nice win. Will Chicago play tough or roll over? Can the tigers go the season with only one loss to KC?

Good luck.

I think the Sox will play tough. They aren't going to lie down for the hated Twins.. Same with KC against Detroit. Play the spoiler role.

That was one of the best games I have ever watched, just as I was bichin about how the Twins have no killer instinct when the door was left open two consecutive nights and how it seems they are going to settle for the wild card...bam! Mauer baby. And how about Bartlett? That was pressure there, and he tagged the ball! There are at least 3 ways to make an out in that situation without scoring a run.

I agree with Stratos. Sox and Royals have had horribly disappointing seasons. If I was a Sox or Royals pitcher I think I just might be looking to end my season with about a dozen a strikeout performance. And maybe an 0-fer night for the batting Prince. smirk.gif

That was an exciting game last night. I'm down in Iowa too. Sweetie took the XM receiver out of her car and left it for me last night so I could hear the Twins. She's a good girl.

I only got a chance to watch a bit here and there last night, and got frustrated at how the Twins batters made the KC pitchers look like Cy Young. Got to watch the bottom of the 9th though. Mauer was just clutch. Still need to win out to have a chance. Hope it keeps going tonight.

I take it then you plan to win the weekly bet this week? Personally, I like your chances on this week Buzzsaw, but for the sake of the avatar I'll say "Go Bills".

Awesome...simply awesome. It was just the momentum they needed to carry them into the final series with the Sux.

I was also at the game last night. Brad pitched great. Actually looked pretty tough out there.

After Mauer hit that homerun, you knew the Twins were gonna win the game. You could literally feel it swing the Twins way.

This has been a special season and one that fans should not take for granted.

Best thing - These guys are all relative newbies to the MLB. We will be tough for years.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.

      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?

      I would call the catfishing this week seasonal.  It is a pretty normal bite for a period of lower water and heat.  The catfish are in post spawn and spread out in their summer haunts.  The more aggressive fish are in the deeper water in the middle of the river.  As usual stay on the move and keep the bait fresh. Bait does not seem to matter still but people with frogs are saying they are getting their better hits with them.

      Wildlife artists can submit entries for the 2018 Minnesota Trout and Salmon Stamp through 4 p.m. Friday, July 28, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  2017 Trout and Salmon Stamp Competition
      First Place: Timothy Turenne Anglers can purchase the trout and salmon stamp validation with their fishing license for an additional $10. For an extra 75 cents, purchasers can receive the pictorial stamp. It is also sold as a collectible for $10.75. Revenue from stamp sales is dedicated to trout and salmon management and habitat work. Trout or salmon must be the primary focus of the design, though other fish species may be included in the design if they are used to depict common interaction between species or are common inhabitants of Minnesota’s lakes and rivers. Brook trout designs are not eligible this year. Artists are prohibited from using any photographic product as part of their finished entries. Winning artists usually issue limited edition prints of the artwork and retain proceeds. Judging will take place Thursday, Aug. 3, at DNR headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul. For more information and contest guidelines, visit mndnr.gov/stamps, or call the DNR Information Center at 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff
