Will there be any "The Sox are in last place!" threads started here?

I was going to. 2 years removed from winning the world series and not losing any major players and in last place- sad.

I think I'd control myself. The Twins seem to be heading the same direction. I'd feel like a little kid chanting, " Your team sucks more than my team!"

You are right Cicada. It certainly isn't over yet. As far as the first to worst thing goes, I think most teams are only a couple players away from either extreme. I am very surprised to see the Sox where they are right now though. The pitching was suspect last year, but they could flat score some runs.

Cicada,

You are wise beyond your years, grasshopper. However, at the moment, the Windy City has the dubious honor of possessing both the best last place team....

AND THE WORST FIRST PLACE TEAM!!!

They signed Dye to an extension and Mike Myers, does that count?

Windy,

And I thought ("they are dead to me") you didn't care anymore?

You forgot to mention the WSox are also the best last place team on an 8 game losing streak.

And they are the best last place team to get swept by the NL Central Leading Cubbies this year (which just may have been the start of their slide).

Oh yeah, and they must be the best Pitching rotation in all of baseball and still be in last place.

GO KC!

PS I told CNY Tim you might be a jinx on his Cards....keep rooting against the Cubbies.

Sled,

Ditto, Dye and Meyers. Looks like they are trying to pose to make those season tix holders think they are serious about next year. Buehrle already in at 56 Mil. I will wait to see if they pop some of the big boys who will be on the market. Word around here is that they are looking at Tori. We shall see.

Geno,

Popping off and sounding cocky, that is just where I want you. All the more sweeter when the Cubbies come crashing down. And we all know they will come crashing down, not a matter of if but when!!! Having already given up on this season it is nice to just sit back and pick off the weekest members of the herd! LOL

Signing dye was Huge although it had little to do with season ticket holders for the Sox as if there was such a thing in Sox land... grin.gif

I think the rest of the league is quite happy Buerle was signed yes even the Twins who have struggled against him.

The Sox as bad as they are are not as far away from contending again as most would like to believe.

Go Ozzie! grin.gif

Windy,

Just stating facts which are certainly true so they can't be taken as cockiness.

Not looking good right now, though, especially if they can't continue after this downpour.

Oh yeah, and if anybody should know what it feels like to come crashing down, it is the BEST LAST PLACE TEAM and their No. 1 FM fan.

Geno,

I still have the glow in my eye from my shiny World Series Champions ring. It is two years old but still shines brighter than anything on the North Side of town. Still sounds like you are starting to feel your oats and I am just trying to help ease your pain that is coming....and it is coming because...THEY ARE THE CUBS! We got ours, when are you going to get yours???

I'd go easy fella- if not for 2005 they haven't won a Series since 1917. 3 Worlds Series championships since the teams existance (1904 first year as White Sox) not exactly the Yankees, huh?

Sorry, but I cheer on the Cubbies, I know you're just Gene some crud, but I thought I would give some back

Zamboni,

I am not comparing my beloved to the Yankees, I am comparing them to THE CUBS!!! And we got MO! This has been going on since the dawn of time when Ogg and Mogg the first two cavemen in Chicago, at the time called Chee Caw Go started arguing over which dinosaur was faster. And now it has morphed into me and Geno. It's all good, we are just two middle aged goofs havin fun in the Windy!

Can you really sit and pick off the weakest members of the herd when you are the herd member already being circled by the vultures? grin.gif

Watch out there Fishy,

There are lots of eyeballs out there with fatter wallets than the Twinks and they have Mr. Santana and Mr. Hunter in their sites. Would not surprise me at all to see Mr. Hunter patrolling the green green grass of US Cellular very soon!!!

Isn't Torii public enemy #1 down there because your sissy of a catcher couldn't take a legal hit?

The way I see it the Sox only have one thing in their favor and that is the bigger wallet than our Twinks. Outside of that, they have many things working against them. They are on a downhill slide and have some holes to fill in a pitching staff. They have some aging veterans that are breaking down. They have AJ. And if I remember right, Torii hasn't been too appreciative of some of the trash they have talked after getting beat out by the Twins.

That said, I think the Mets, Yanks, Red Sox and possibly the Cubs are closer to competing for a title than your Pale Sox and have wallets just as large or larger.

      Thank for the update and photo Dave and Diane! Cliff

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.
    • JeremyCampbell
      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.
    • Horseshoe_Don
      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
