NLCS Predictions New York v.s. St.Louis

66 posts in this topic

boy we must be the 1st 2 people to vote so you can tell who I voted for. I know your a Cards fan but I think if NY can shut down Albert they will win the series but that is asking alot.

Yeah I voted for my heart naturally but I am a realist too the Cards could be easily swept in this, heck 21 out of 22 ESPN analysts picked San Diego over St. Louis so there you go... Just gotta play the games now...

Nice Walters CNY,

I wonder if you will get any comments from Sled Neck? Good luck to your Birdies tonight.

Nice fish Tim. I will take the Cards. Albert will lead them to the promised land.

Actually, I know very little about the NL, but you can't predict what will happen. Who here thought that Detroit would do much in the playoffs the way they ended the season? Right now they look like the odds on favorites they way they are playing.

Thanks guys, glad you enjoyed the waldos. As far as my redbirds if they miraculously can pull off this NLCS I can't bear the thought of them getting swept in the W.S. yet again and the way Detroit is playing regardless if it's the Mets or Cards I still don't think that they have remotely enough to beat Detroit. Leyland can do nothing wrong case in point with Casey at the bat down with a calf injury some 10 yr. triple AAA 20K guy steps in and picks up where they left out. here playing some amazing ball right now. I truly believe it's Detroit in the end and why not they play real baseball in the AL Central...

I agree with you CNY,

The Kitties look earily like my beloved Pale Hose of last year. They start the season like a house on fire with great starting pitching, great relief and huge hitters, then go into the dumper the second half of the season, pee away their division lead (though my Pale Hose did hang onto it, barely) and then find a resurgence come playoff time. Kind of looks like "destiny". If they do pull it off I would not mind, with ex-Sox Leyland, Maggs and being from the Central but I would not mind seeing the Birdies take it with Tony and Duncan. Just don't want to see the Mets take it!!!

If Carp get's it done and we still don't hit this ship is sunk. Last night we made old man Tom Glavine lok good... For Christs sakes we had ample opportunities and kept shooting our selves in the foot, with double plays. Scott Rolen needs to sit period! Weaver pitched his butt off, one mistake to Beltran but othere than that he pitched good enough to win. AAAARGGHH give me a reason to stay home and watch you guys if not I'm going walleye fishing.

I don't think you'll get a better pitching performance from any of the Cardinals pitchers the rest of the series, with that being said, the cards better score some runs or the brooms are coming out of the closet. frown.gif

As they have started, it seems to me the better series would be OAK/StL!!

This gonna start our disagreements over again Windy or do we have a new record of agreeing on TWO things????

If by "better" you mean more competitive then we agree. If you are saying that StL and Oak are the better teams then we disagree. I guess the World Series should be the best two teams and right now for better or worse the two best appear to be the Mets and Kitties. I forgot about the fond memories a NY team brought me lo the many years ago when I was a mear tot at the age of 10 back in the Summer of 69 (pardon my Bryan Adams reference). I guess I did like a NY team for one short period of time when my beloved Pale Hose lost 100 games that year! It helped quiet my Cubbie loving friends that summer. Windy

CNY,

Don't go sending up the panic flares just yet. I didn't realize the Birdies had a DDH on their bench. (designated dinger hitter) So is 2 for 2 in the post and both went yard. Touch em all So Taguchi! Windy

Windy, I did mean it would be more competitive (since both were in hitting slumps), but now the Cards are back in it.

Tim, more beauties...off a dock? You lucky guy. Pulled a MN walter out for my dinner tonight-yum!

RJ,Andy, or whoever the heck it was that was such a huge Tiger toaster -- you finally were right. Man do they ever look like they deserve to be in the WS. Who do you want - Mets or Cards?

      I think you need to go back to basics. What you are trying to do doesn't have to be reinforced in just the boat.

      You need that dog to obey and listen to each command you give. If you are trying to get her to sit/stay then that's what you need to work on.

      You can practice and work on that command every time you open the door to the kennel to let the dog out. You tell her to sit/stay and you open the door. If she doesn't you know close the door and repeat.

      Every time you give your dog a bowl of food don't just give it to her make her sit/stay before she get its. There are  varieties of situation that the sit command can be used for. Start with small exercises and work your way up to bigger more complicated tasks, repetition, repetition repetition. Be sure to praise and always try to end work on a positive note. 

      I think the most important thing is don't give a command you cant reinforce.

      I made it out last night, saw a small buck and a nice doe at 20 yards but to quite to hear them and since I'm in some really thick stuff I didn't see them until they were on top of me.  Also saw another deer 40 yards away but couldn't tell what it was, then spooked something behind (not the direction the deer normally head to in the evening) me as I was getting down.  Almost had a Coyote in the CRP grass when I was walking out, big sucker and the second one see in two sits now (one by my wife and now by me), the land owner said that they are coming up on to his yard now.  I've hunted this ground for 12 years and this is the first year I've seen a coyote while hunting.

      Here's a couple of views from the stand, going to move it to the edge of the CRP field that is about 30 yards behind me.

      Made it out for a very short sit Saturday Night. Thunder storms had my son and I scrambling for the truck. Our view. Lots of good deer sign in area. Early SE Corn.JPG

    • 750 this week only Im losing money on this but would rather have someone be able to use it than for it to just sit around. After this week I am going to winterize it and it will no longer be for sale.

    • How is she on the sit command?  That is the basis of everything.  She needs to learn to sit still and wait until the next command.  I don't even teach my dogs "stay" because it isn't necessary if they are solid on "sit".  Every dog has the ability to be steady, it is up to you to teach them.  A lab that isn't steady in the boat is not only annoying, it is potentially dangerous with loaded guns and the potential to capsize a boat in open water. 

      If she knows sit but just needs some reinforcement, it may just take a couple trips where you don't even bring the gun along and let others shoot while you handle the dog. 

      If she's real bad, I would recommend going back to the basics. It will be tougher with an older dog versus a puppy but is definitely worth it. Check out the retriever training DVDS by Bill Hillman. They are spendy but definitely worth it.

      Looking for advice on keeping the dog focused and quiet in the duck boat.  Was out today and we shot enough ducks to keep her busy, however my dog is such a hyper hypo that it's a  little annoying.  Either whining or jumping back and forth from the front and back of the boat.  Do I just need to establish the expectation and keep on her till she finally gets it or is this how some dogs are in the boat? This is her 4th year duck hunting and she has continued to improve each season.  Overall I am happy with her work, especially with the limited amount of hunting I do.  We were out today for 3 hours, shot 8 birds and she did great on the retrieving end and is pretty much focused on the skies, but if something is not constantly dropping from them I feel like I have a screaming baby on my hands.  It's not really that bad, just very annoying.   I would just like her to sit in her spot, stare at the skies and wait for my command.  Is this to much to ask?

      she's getting big

      She's up to 38 pounds at a few days short of 5 months and does not stop going 100 mph. She got exposed to a lot of feathers this weekend at duck camp. She retrieved dead ducks and geese in the yard after our hunts. The goose was a bit big so I chopped a wing off and worked with that after she picked it up and barely made it back a short distance to me.

      Fishing Report from Flag Island Resort Lake of the Woods, Northwest Angle 9/25/16

       

      Happy Fall!

       

      On the Minnesota side fishing has been great around Soldier’s and Mergan’s Point. Most points have been producing fish as well as bays due to shiners moving into the bays. Raps and spinners have been successful as well as 3/8 ounce jigs with the jig bite turning back on. Shiners, crawlers and fatheads have all been attracting the fish. The magic depth has been between 8 and 18 feet. The duck and goose opener has been successful with many resident birds still around we have not seen any signs of northern birds in the area. There have been many Woodducks and Mallards around.

       

      Over on the Ontario side the Walleye bite has been great and the Crappies are picking up. Anglers have been targeting fall spots and jigging in 18-28 feet of water. Emerald shiners are on the move to spawn so watch for them in channels and bays with creeks. The water temp is cooling down and is approximately at 62 degrees. Trolling for Muskies in 10-18 feet has also been good.

       

      The leaves are starting to change colors and there is definitely a chill in the air but, there is still plenty of time to get in on some wonderful fall fishing. The best part about fall fishing is some of the great wildlife you get to see out and about. Also, it is a good time to start thinking about your winter ice fishing trip, we would love to have you as our guest!

       

      Until next week, good luck fishing!
