I wish there was something that could be done with those jerseys. You feel dirty wearing them when the player leaves the team, unless they were a legend like Garnett with the Wolves. I'm keeping my Santana jersey though!

No kidding on Rolen. A year removed from earning his 7th gold glove.

CNY,

What is up with that? I have always thought pretty highly of Rolen and Glaus has never really done much for me. Put it this way, if I had my choice of the two to don a Pale Hose jersey I would go with Rolen and if I had the choice of the two up to bat in a game winning situation I would go Rolen every time. Maybe some of the "stat rats" out there will prove me wrong as I have not compared the two. Just my initial blush on the situation.

Just from what I've heard in the press, I think it's more about attitude. Rolen caused some problems in the clubhouse with his fights with LaRusa. HEY, he would fit in with the White Sox!

Windy,

I thought you thought that Crede is the best 3rd bagger to ever lace up spikes for the WSox?

GO PACK!

Geno,

You're right on that matter, I was just comparing the two that CNY was talking about. I would take Crede over Hack Wilson and Ron Santo! LOL

So are you guys going to keep dumping millions on broken down 40 year old retread pitchers???

Didn't Jon Leiber pitch for the Cubbies in the 70's or was it the 80's!!!

Hugs and Kisses Geno

Well I'd say it's step back as far as defense but Rolen's health has been an issue and it may be his last stop in Toronto before he hangs it up same with Edmonds going to San Diego. Loook for Encarnacion to medically retire as well. I'll never forget that foul ball that caught himsquare in the eye. Just hoping he will be able to have some of his vision if not all back for the 09 season. We signed another pitcher Matt Clement and he's coming off rehab so will see how he he fairs. Mulder will be back before Carp.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
