What a start to the season

30 posts in this topic

Oh Windy,

I don't care the outcome, but I like the start of the season:

Going into the bottom of the first: CLE 5, WSox -0-

Not to steal your thunder, Geno, but the Twins just won their season opener.

That's a better way to start the season!!!

Santana just needs to start keeping the ball down.

I liked what I saw from Santana last night. For a guy who starts each year out slow (by his elevated standards) that was a pretty good start. I wanted to see Morneau get up another time and see if he could tie Lou Pinella's record of getting thown out at all four bases in one game. laugh.gif

Yep, that was a good one. Good games by the guys you need good games from. We all know Santana will only get better. Did anybody else expect to see Radke's first pitch, 0-0 count, top of the first inning to land in left field grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I loved Morneau's comment after the game saying he was trying to help the O's lead the league in outfield assists. I loved watching the game last night, the twins were aggresive in all aspects and kept the O's on their heels, the lineup looks good from 1 to 9 and hopefully out starting pitching can keep us in it through the sixth. I'm surious to see what form Boof is in tonight.

Boof , as stupid as it sounds, is the key to Twins hopes for postseason. If he improves on last year and hitters don't figure him out like they do on lots of soph pitchers, the TWins always play the game the right way-- Expect around 90 wins and playoff berth. I see the Tigers on a downfall.

On a postive note both Hunter and Morneau are on pace to hit 162 HR's this year. grin.gif

On the down side, Cuddyer is on pace to strike out 486 times. frown.gifgrin.gif

Where can I get my playoff tickets?

The only twins without hits were white and bartlett. White got a BB. And bartlett lined out to the SS with men on base. Things are looking sweet.

Wow,

The Twinks and the Cubbies in the World Series!!!

This is gonna be great (pardon my Flounder-ism there from Animal House) So Geno, nice start to the season for the Cubbies, that power packed line up really throttled the opposing pitcher. If they keep this pace up they will have 162 runs at the end of the year, not to worry though Kerry Wood and Mark Prior will pitch shutouts every game they start..........I said, Every Game They Start....Tee Hee!

Hey Windy,

Just got a call from Prior and Wood - they told me to check the scoreboard --- looks like the PaleHose are gonna come from ahead to lose today. They also saide, by the way, NICE shutout by Garland today. The WSox staff gonna have an even worse ERA this year compared to last?

Hey Geno,

I just heard an interesting fact. In the past 30 years, how many years did the Cubbies finish over .500????

How many years have the Sox finished over .500????

Sleep well my friend, until you find the answer to these questions....Here's to the new season, any wagers??? Sox record vs Cubs??? You name the price and I will take the bet. How about 1 week of avatar of winners choice for every game difference. We can go month to month or season total. You can plan on having to look at the Sox Championship Ring with your name on it for about 15 weeks!!!

Do we have a bet???

Thataway Windy, evade the issue as usual.

Here's what I plan: WSox in 4th, Cubs to the WS.

Who are you - Jethro Tull? Talk about Living in the Past, sheesh. Lessee, the Cubs are .500 now----TODAY---not 15 weeks ago. What are the WSox? Never mind, that was a rhetorical question. (But just to gloat while I still can, I'd like to state the obvious: WSox are "oh-fer" - O for the season! Nyuk, nyuk.)

I've already made one bet this year with a fishing buddy that by the time we get to PHole lunch on our Cass trip, the Flubbies will be ahead of the Cards. One pitcher of ice cold beer will be used to celebrate my winnings.

As for our bet, how's about we compare monthly recods so that gives us 6 diff bets (Apr - Sept)? Hey, wait a minute: didn't we already bet a dinner of Cass Walters...Cubs against the field? I'm gonna have to go back and review some old posts.

Ah, forget it. You'd probably just evade the bet anyway.

PS Twins lead WSox by 2 1/2 - and the WSox are only 2 games into the season!

Spinner,

I've been dealing with this my entire life. My two best friends since 1st grade were a die hard Cub fan and a die hard Sox fan. The other die hard Sox fan eventually became my best man and the Cub fan ended up moving to Las Vegas when he was in the 8th grade. I don't know what that means but I honed my arguing skills in 1969, you remember that season right Geno? One of the greatest seasons for Sox fans as we watched the Cubbies go down faster than Linda Lovelace at a batchelors party. It was sweet listening to my friend crow for 4 months about how great the Cubbies were and then BAM (pardon my Emeril-ism there)

OK Geno, it is a bet, at the end of each month the team with the worst record has to post the winners choice of avatar for one week. It will be a cumulative record, not individual segments.

So I have to ask you this Geno........

DEAL OR NO DEAL???????????

It's all good Windy. I love coming here for my daily dose of Sox smack. It's no fun if the bad guys won't play. BTW, you're one of the most vocal prognosticators, so lets see your predictions posted on the 2007 Playoff thread before the season gets too old. I know you got an opinion. grin.gif

All right Geno,

Start looking for your favorite Cubbie avatar, you are already looking at my favorite Sox one........

On second thought, what am I saying, the Cubbies will never be ahead of the Sox this season, don't bother looking for a Cubs avatar, YOU WON'T NEED ONE!!!! LOL

      Just curious about these two landings...Heading out for pike next weekend. Any "sketchy" spots or ice ridges I need to worry about this year? I normally go out of the warroad landing and head east down the shore a little ways. Thanks

      No compression and if it is leaking fuel out of the exhaust, then it is a valve problem, fix-able, but at what cost when compared to a new one or find a used unit.

      Hello everyone last year at he end of ice season I got a clam auger plate. The one you install in place of drill chuck. I didn't have time to use it last season. This past Christmas I got a Milwaukee fuel drill and it doesn't fit. The threads for the chuck are bigger then the adapter clam includes. Has anyone dealt with this issue?

      With ice as thick as 24-30 inches and long range forecast for freezing temps, ice fishing season through March in good shape. Roads have smoothed out from the warmer weather and now freezing again.  Some snow still remains on the lake. A very active bite continues with many good sized walleyes and saugers.  Working every fish with electronics is helpful.  Some walleyes are suspended. The anglers working a jigging line with jigging spoon tipped with minnow head or tail and a dead stick with a plain hook or small ice jig and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/ early afternoon and 17-24 before nightfall.  Best colors glow pink/red or chartreuse.    The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been spotty at times. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. The river is open from Birchdale to the east. Only some shore ice remains and some reports say anglers have already started pushing boats over the ice.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, ice conditions are still favorable with 20-24 inches of solid ice in non-current areas. Snow cover is minimal on snowmobile trails but are still being groomed and in good condition. On the Minnesota side,  walleyes are being caught  on shallower rock points between 20-24 feet as well as deeper mud between 28-30 feet. A good number of saugers and perch are also being produced. Black and gold have been performing very well using a variety of baits.  In Ontario the crappie bite has been hot and cold as of last week. Walleyes are are most active on rock humps with successful colors being, blue and white, pink and gold. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  Pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN.
