Game 7 ALCS


Mudcutter

Recommended Posts

It's Oct. Game 7 for a chance at the WS. Doesn't get any better than this- other than maybe game 7 of the WS which doesn't go that far anymore.

Who can perform in the clutch???

Boston 8

Clev 5

Bullpen blows it for the tribe.

I just hope its a LITTLE closer than last nights game 6- what a joke. Honestly though, don't think it matters- the Rockies will win the WS in 5- and easily, too

I truely thought that the Indians could handle Boston. I now fear that Cleveland is in BIG trouble. I guess we will know more after today.

I picked Cleveland to beat the Rockies in the WS, wont work if they fall apart now. frown.gif

When I saw the pitching for Game 5 and on, I figured it would turn around and be Boston's series to lose (easy to say now, I know, just trust me on it). I think Boston pulls it out tonight and beats Colorado in 6. I think the layoff cools Colorado down a little.

i have a feeling that boston is going to run with it. They have alot of momentum right now, being that its in boston.

4 innings left. We will see what happens towards the end.

My Pick... Boston

Is it just me or does Casey Blake's playoff beard give him that Will Primos look?

Sox get out of a jam in the 7th with a Blake double play.

Let Paps finish this thing. I should hate the Sox for their huge payroll but I guess I don't want to see another AL Central team win a pennant and not be named "Minnesota Twins"

That and Dice and Paps helped me take the cake in Fantasy BB this year.

I pull for Boston. Why-- I hate the NL. they give the AL a much better chance at winning the WS. Who do you think rockies fans were pulling for??? Let's seee,,, we can face either CC- (my fat) SAbathia and Fausto (deer in headlights) Carmona or-------- JOSH BECKETT and CURT SCHILLING. Beck is the best big game pitcher this decade and Schilling is not who you want to face when you need a big win.

BOS in 6,, maybe 5--- they are HOT!!!!!

Not really a major collapse.They ran into a TEAM.They faced Beckett at home and got beat by the best. SChilling and SUZAKA' at Fenway. NO selfish hitters on the Red Sox other thabn maybe Manny. Hafner and Sizemore--- hello???? Casey Blake--- all you have to do is hit a fly ball and Lofton scores. Anyone who thought it was over after 4,, is nuts ( the line in Vegas after BEck won game 5, favored BOston 12-10.) ((and Beck was 16-10 fav over SAb anyways...)) --- Boston has pitching and hitting----- and so does CLEV--- but who executes in the CLUTCH????? Too much exp-- too much Fenway Park, and too much top notch pitching.

Nice Pick Up Pier,

I was going to chime in with the same. You have to lay that one on the ole Pale Hoser, Joel Skinner, 3rd base coach for the Tribe, he initially was waving him around but he put the stop sign up before Kenny got to the base. It is a split second decision and I think he may, I say may, have made the right choice. That ball riccocheted into very short left field and with the short porch, Manny was just past the skinned infield when he picked up the ball. I think it would have been a very close play at the plate although everybody is saying the opposite. That is the number one job of the third base coach and it has to be split second. If you think long you think wrong.

Didn't the Rockies take 2 of 3 in Fenway during interleague play and did they not beat Beckett and Shilling, some buddy may want to check that. I think the only game the Sox won was when Wakefield pitched. Should be a good one...

I agree it's split second decision by the 3rd base coach but Lofton would scored easily.

ESPN did a split screen analysis of the Play and Manny was still a good distance away from the ball.

Oh well.... Go Rockies!.. smirk.gif

Can't argue that Pier, that is why I said Skinner "may" have made the right choice. That has to be one of the toughest things to do as a coach. My Pale Hose did great in 05 with Joey Cora, it seemed like he guessed right almost every time. This year, my Pale Hose did not fair so well. Razor Shines was wrong most of the time. I think the short porch may have fooled Skinner and he might have thought Manny was closer than he was.

      On the south end...   Summer fishing is prime time right now up at Lake of the Woods.  Good numbers of walleyes being caught.  A nice variety of sizes, which bodes well for the fishery.  Small fish, eaters, slot fish which must be released (19.5 - 28.0 inches) and trophy walleyes over 28 inches all in the mix.     The mud is holding big numbers of fish and two main fishing techniques are being used to get it done. The first technique is drifting or trolling crawler harnesses.  Using a two ounce bottom bouncer and a two snelled spinner will do the trick.  Best spinner colors have been gold, gold/pink, orange/chartreuse.     Making sure your weight is near the bottom, but not dragging the bottom is key.  Try to maintain a 45 degree angle and make sure the spinner is spinning, normally 1.0 - 1.3 mph.  Walleyes will load up, almost feeling like you are dragging a wet sock.  A good feeling!   The second technique catching good numbers of walleyes is trolling crankbaits over the mud basin.  To get crankbaits down to schools of fish normally in that 28 - 32' range, lead core line, snap weights, downriggers and even a 4 ounce bottom bouncer with 6' mono or fluorocarbon leader with shallow diving crankbait will work well.   Most popular depths on the mud are 30'-36' of water over the mud basin.  Not every walleye in the lake is focusing on the same forage base.  There has also been success in that 12-20' range over sand and even shallower along shore.     Reefs can be their own ecosystem and can always hold fish.  Fish can be on top, sides, on the rock to mud transition or even adjacent to reef out in the mud.  Go fishing, watch electronics. On the Rainy River...  With drier weather, the flow of water is decreasing on the Rainy River.  Water clarity has improved and so has fishing.     Most are targeting the edges of the main current where water is slower moving.  Points, bridges, underwater structure, docks and bends in the river can all change current flow, creating good spots for fish to live. Jigs, spinners and crankbaits are all catching fish.  There are 42 miles of navigable Rainy River with literally thousands of fun spots to fish. The sturgeon season is open.  Some nice fish were caught this week.  Anchor up on a hole or adjacent to a hole in the river and soak some nightcrawlers.  Local tackle shops have flat no roll sinkers and sturgeon rigs.     There is a big population of smallmouth bass in the Rainy River.  Although they don't receive much attention due to walleyes, they are abundant. Up at the NW Angle...  Great walleye fishing is the rule of thumb using three techniques, jigging, trolling spinners and trolling crankbaits.     Reports of walleyes sliding deeper off of structure.  If fishing a "spot on a spot", jigging is the preferred method.  If fish are spread out or you are searching a flat, spinners and crankbaits will cover more water and walleyes are normally cooperative.   Some big pike caught again this week.  These predators are often hanging around schools of walleyes and saugers, but rocky points, bays and sunken islands are great spots as well. Muskie anglers continue reporting good success fishing a variety of structure amongst the islands.

      CFD200, Nice Fish!  are you on the east or west side of Vermilion?
    • monstermoose78
      Just have been busy and I will work ok a report tonight. 
    • CFD200
      We had difficulty finding any walleyes this weekend.  The previous two weekends I marked a lot of fish with few takers.  Didn't  mark many this weekend but, caught this 24" mark.

      Fish cleaning shack has been pretty quiet at pike bay resort last 2 days. Been on several spots on big bay with little success.  Family wants to lose their $$ at casino today.  Hopefully get out later today. Good luck and keep posting.  
    • FishinCT
      Any recent info out of vermilion? Coming up for next 4 days and will report back as well. Haven’t fished in the summer up there for a long time
    • Dash 1
      74 in big bay this morning.  Now I just need to find the fish.

      Blame you?  You needed it there and I knew you couldn’t change your, um, *stretch?* time.
    • smurfy
      🤣🤔 I can't believe you didn't try blaming me.   It's been a while since I stopped there... to check the landing  🤭
    • Wanderer
      I was wondering how long it would take you to notice - and blame me!  It wasn’t there the weekend before the 4th I know!  We took my buddies duck boat with a surface drive motor out for the grand tour.   I looked for it and thought DANG Smurf’s gonna be pizzed!   Then I found you something real nice on the interweb you might be interested in.
