Atlanta Braves.

20 posts in this topic

I know where all from Minnesota, but how many atlanta braves fan we have out there. I am a HUGE braves fan. Chipper Jones Lover. I believe they have there team back to where they were before. They dont have the big guns like back in the day, but they have a team that is put together to make a run again.

Who else is with me!!!!!!!!!!

I'm with ya! Life long fan. Bullpen looks GREAT! Rotation has the makings to be strong and still the best coach in the majors. Outfield is the best defensively and 2 of three are great hitters. Catcher ranks among the best there is. Infield is the only question mark. The left side is fairly strong (if chipper can remain healthy). Hopefully Johnson and Thorman can hold their own, and we'll be alright!

Love to hear that chant in October!

I am watching the Pre Season game, and they had a interview with chipper. He said that its never going to be 100%, which is something that everyone should know. But they had him move up a show size, to place support inside the shoe. He said that he hurts the most on solid ground, but wants to be in eevery game that he can. He wants to play 150 games. Thats huge. I hope he can.

Big Braves fan here too. Got it from my dad, he was a Mil. braves fan and followed them when they moved south. I try to get to a Braves game once a year when they play the Brewers or if they get the Twins. High hopes for this young club if they can stay healthy. I gotta believe this could be Cox last year.

The only baseball on TV up north years ago was the Braves. The games would play normal time and repeat after midnight. Great teams with Murphy, Sarge and others.

Actually TBS is scheduled to show less Braves games this year than ever. And starting next year they will show random games, not Braves games. Oh, how I miss Turner!!! He was a GREAT owner. Not a Steinbrenner (Thank goodness!) but he allowed the team to compete. Now it's corporate b.s.

Miss Turner for sure. Games on TBS almost every night and he wasn't afraid to spend the money.

I've watched 7 Braves games in my whole life. That's when they lost to the Twins in the world series.

I think they really got a good shot this year because there bullpen is alot better then last year.

Isnt that a fact. I think they are going to be a team to beat. The best thing i can say, is there bull pen is alot better, yet there going to still have to hit the ball. If they hit the ball, there going to be a tough beat.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?

      not something I consider when eating as I don't eat fish weekly.  I feed them to my kids and my wife ate it while pregnant.  Not sure if there really is a concern or not but the basic guidelines are out there more for kids and pregnant women.  Unless you are eating fish daily or every other day then I don't think you need to worry a whole bunch.  Heck if you die because of mercury poisoning from eating too many fish, well at least you had one hell of a time before you died! HAHAHA   A few years back a local lake close to the metro started producing a lot of crappies and people drove all over to fish.  A lot of fish were taken and eaten.  The lake had been traditionally known as a dumping pond for farm runoff and other things like that...I ate a limit or 2 from said lake and never had issues with anything and the fish tasted like they should.  Point being that unless they say "DON'T EAT FISH FROM THIS LAKE" just follow the state guidelines for your kids and prego wife but other than that enjoy a meal or 2 a week if you are lucky to catch enough!!  Good Luck- Ozzie

      I think day use motor or camping requires a permit, not self service.
