Hopefully this will provide enough of a spark for them to at least make a push towards the division.

BGreen,

I'm with you on that one. I mean come on, first he loses the perfect with a walk and then the no no to a guy who was walking in cold to pinch hit for his first at bat since June 17th. At least my miserable team can seal the deal when they get close. Mr. Buehrle has his no no in the bank this year. And didn't they turn around and lose the other game 9-4 to KC?

PS: Don't let the Cubs Logo fool you, I have lost a few bets this year to Geno and this is his payback, a week of looking at this God Awful logo instead of my beautiful shiny World Championship ring.

Buehrle's been in the league a few years. So how long did it take for him to throw a prefect game. Wait no-hitter right. 1 World Championship and back to losersville. Over priced team of losers.

Put that in you're pipe and smoke it. Good job Baker.

Always nice to have Windy make a comment. Just like a bad movie critic when Windy talks you know it is just the opposite. A real nice game by Baker. There not easy to come by and he may never get the chance again for a perfect game. What a great experience for a young pitcher. I feel for Redmond, you know he was hoping to be on the receiving end!

I was a wreck watching it, I can't imagine how Baker felt.

And Windy, the Twins lost the first game 9-4. Baker's was the second.

Im sorry to all of you. I took my kid to the game and told her she better be paying attention because she may be watching history. Well ten minutes later you know what happened. Still I think a lot of people there knew in the 3rd inning they were seeing something cool. You could just see he was pitching great and even if it was a onehitter it was a great performance. Thanks scott for giving my daughter and I soemthing to remember for years to come.

Brought my daughter to this game as her first ever baseball game (She is 3). It was a great game to watch. Do you all wanna know what she remembers about it?

"Daddy, we went to a baseball game and saw a BEAR on a 4 WHEELER. THAT IS SILLY!!!"

grin.gif kids!!! grin.gif the bad thing is the first pitch to the guy he walked was a strike called a ball and then the only other pitch he got in that count was in the same spot...not saying he would have had a different outcome but not the time to tighten the zone!! Great game for Baker!!!

It is certainly getting old........

You know the great thing about how poorly the WSox are playing? You just don't hear all that bullcrap on the news all the time about how interesting a player AJ is or how great a manager Ozzie is or what a fantastic GM Kenny Williams is....gag me with a spoon...P-uke!

It's funny...Harrelson still says Uribe is a good shortstop and Reinsdorf has the nerve to grade Ozzie as an 'A'. Hmppf.

Geno,

I guess Jerry was grading on a "curve" eh? I almost wet myself when I heard him shoot out the A. Hard to swallow in the midst of all the garbage on the field this year, not sure Jerry is on the same page of reality as the fans!

Geno,

Today there is talk of a contract EXTENSION for the Wizard of OZ ! Imagine if the Pale Hose were actually North of the Mason/Dixon line this year, we would be looking at Ozzie Jr. running the team in 20 years or so!

Things that make you go, hmmmm!

      On the south end... Lake of the Woods ice fishing is still going strong.  Ice trails and ice roads are doing well.  Some anglers report slush when going off of the roads and creating their own trails.  Good idea to work through your favorite resort and outfitter this time of year.  Ice fishing is still readily available if you want to get out. Both day houses and sleeper houses are out and can be through March 31st.  The forecast ahead has high 30's during the day and teens at night.  Work through a resort or outfitter as they monitor conditions closely on their ice roads. The walleye and sauger season extends through April 14 and the pike season never closes.  Perch, eelpout, tullibees and crappies are also in season. A good week of fishing for some, mixed for others.  Walleyes seem to be moving this time of year.  If you are on them, it is normally good.  The combo of the jigging line and deadstick is working well.  One day they want it moving, the other, the deadstick is the ticket.   Huge pike continue to be active with good reports this week.  Setting up in 5 - 15 feet of water is the depth most anglers are targeting. On the Rainy River...   The morning / evening bite has been best for walleye anglers.  This time of year, extra caution is needed if fishing around moving water.     No open water fishing to report as of yet.  On the Rainy River, ice can go out quickly, only Mother Nature knows.  We will keep you posted. Remember, on Four Mile Bay and the Rainy River, catch and release only for walleyes and saugers through April 14th.  The big lake is still open for harvesting walleyes and saugers through April 14th.  Up at the NW Angle... Good walleye and pike reports by anglers this week up at the Angle.   Like the south end, a plain hook or small glow jig with a live minnow has been working well.  Walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, big pike and eelpout in the mix. Crappies continue being caught on the Ontario side of the lake amongst the islands.  We recommend using a guide as ice conditions amongst the islands with current and neck down areas, etc.   For those looking to access the NW Angle while avoiding customs, snowmobiling across the lake on the marked trails are in good shape or utilizing the Lake of the Woods Passenger (bombardier) Service keeps you in Minnesota.  During the open water months, boating across or charter boat service is available keeps you out of Canada.

      Drove out again on Tonka yesterday late afternoon and fished sundown. Six other vehicles on the bay. Ice in great shape. Lost a lot of snow since last Wednesday. Snow melt starting to drain down the access so that'll go first. My hot spot was  still hot but not as many bigger crappie. Had to coax them a little to bite. Still got a 12 (inhaled the jigging spoon), a couple 11s and several 9-10. They were 80-90 feet away from where I caught them last week in 20-22' instead of 18-20' maybe because of the bright sun. Gotta love LiveScope for helping to find them. At 4:24 pm (spring solstice) I thought the fish might start jumping out of the holes or at least go on a ravenous bite, but nothing changed. When all that bit were little bluegill I went looking for the crappie and didn't find them. I did find 2 schools of sunfish. One in 15' that had 7" fish and one in 18' on a ridge between shoreline and a hump that separates 2 deeper holes. Those were 8" average.

      I rarely buy live bait in the summer also, with the exception of leeches.  But all of it needs to be kept cool and oxygenated so the bait coolers do prove their value.   You might want to shop around for bait prices though.  Maybe out of the 7 county metro you could call ahead.  I found decoy suckers for $3 each over the winter.
    • gimruis
      Part of my issue with live bait is that it generally results in a higher hooking mortality than artificial does, especially in the heat of summer.  95% of what I catch is intended to be released, so in order to maximize that, it helps to avoid using live bait.  I'm not saying you can't accidentally kill a fish with artificial that is deep hooked, because you certainly can.  But as a general rule, they are more often hooked in the mouth with artificial.   The cost is also ridiculous for some live bait too.  Crappie minnows and waxies aren't bad, but when you start talking shiners, jumbo leeches, and decoy suckers...it gets out of hand quickly.  The last time I bought a big decoy sucker for muskie fishing years ago, they were $14 each.  15 bucks for a dozen shiners and half of them are dead by the time you get to the lake?  Take my left arm too why don't ya.

      End of April is my guess for lakes along the I90 corridor.

      Great.  Have to swing by soon to see what they have, then over to Petti Bros for some jerky and sticks!

      Great news. They opened last Wednesday. Sounds like it’s about twice as big. Looking forward to checking it out soon.
