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

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?
    • ZachD
      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too
    • DLD24
      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      lol I posted that Friday but with no service it must went when I ran into town for new hose

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch
