Home Run Johan?

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

Kinda has a nice ring to it doesn't it? Seriously, I think Johan has taken over Brad Radke's role of giving up the long ball. I know he's still a very good pitcher our offense has sucked this year, but if Johan would learn to keep the ball inside the park, he'd probably be approaching 20 wins and another Cy Young award right now.

Wow,

Throwing the Great One under the bus! I know things have sunk to an all time low in Twinkie-land now. I guess misery loves company, now I don't feel too bad here in the Windy City as I watch my beloved Pale Hose continue their "suck fest" of 07!

Johan said the other day that he would rather give up solo homers then having players on base. He has not been his normal self this whole year.

We can take him off your hands guys. I'm sure Kenny Williams would send you Juan Uribe, Ryan Buckvich and Joe Crede and a $100 Gift Card to Star Bucks. Sound like a plan?

Don't even think about sending him to the windy city. Send him to the Motor City. Our starters are really struggling.

Did you read his post guys.

All he did was state the obvious.

If he wasn't leading the Major Leauges in Home Runs allowed he would have another Cy Young on the mantel.

Pretty simple really.

Unfortunately you guys wasted to much on Buelre and won't be able to afford 22 million plus for 4 or 5 years on Santana.

Hunter maybe...

Just check your 2008 Early Edition schedule that will come out during Fan Appreciation Weekend for when the Yankees come to town. Probably your only opportunity to see Spidey roaming HumphreyDump's center field. Repeat for 2009 to possibly catch the reincarnation of CyTana.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
