Boston is either 8-0 or 9-0 in elmination games in the last few years. sign of a tough franchsise.

I think if Boston wins Game 7, they sweep the Phils.

Ever think that sometimes that certain elements of games involving the red sox, might be somehow "adjusted" by certain powers that be?

come backs from 3-1 alcs in 3 of 5 years? Does this once in a lifetime stuff just happen.......3 times?

It would be like watching your own kids that you raised be sucessfull. The Twins pretty much had representation on all the playoff teams.

Should be a very good World Series. I will be routing for TAMPA BAY.

Man, you guys apparently haven't watched the Phillies play any games this year. Why all the hating on the Phils??? They are an excellent team, and the Rays could be in trouble. I picked Phils/Rays WS at the beginning, before any games were played, and I say Phillies in 6

I will be pulling for the Rays for 3 reasons:

Reason Number 1 - They are not Boston or New York!

Reason Number 2 - It is their first time and they have one of the lowest payrolls in MLB, further irritating Boston and New York!

Reason Number 3 - They beat my beloved Pale Hose so at least I can say that we lost to the World Series Champs!

[PoorWordUsage] Delmon's only 23. He'll come along. The trade will eventually pan out for both teams... Just doesn't look so good now does it lol.

Even without Garza, our rotation was great. Wasn't much of a weak link that Garza would have exactly replaced.

nothing agst the Phils. just agst the NL. It could be the Dodgers or anyone else,,, when you look at the difference in W-L % in interleague play and your an AL fan,,, well, I hope TB sweeps the Phils.,, thou I think it will be good series since it's Tampa and not much experiece.

Tampa in 6

What would Manny have hit if he played all games in NL this year?? What would Jones,Pujols hit if they played in the AL??

All 3 are great hitters,, but in my mind, Manny hits around .380 in NL and JOnes and Pujols hit around .333

AL has dominated interleague play, not becasue of the DH, but becasue of pitching,, especially the closers.

Windy--

#4-- they win and the Cubs don't. Another team that wins a world championship that wasn't even dreamed of in 1908 or 1945 or ... does it matter. ANother nail in the coffin of the Cubs.

Heck even if the Phils win,, it's a nail in the coffin of the Cubs--- the losingest franchise in all of pro sports wins a title before the vaunted Cubs. That's a curse that gets better (worse) even with the Cubs 'dreaming of next year'.

I agree,, it's one year. Not a trade,, but look at Joe Mauer and Mark Prior. Then again he went to the Cubs,, all bets are off after that.

The thought that Prior or Mauer was even a question mark like Leaf or Manning back in the day is almost laughable. Is Prior ever going to play again?

You guys all know how I feel about the Cubbies, but back in his day people thought Prior was the cats pajama's. He was supposed to have the perfect delivery vs his teammate Kerry Wood who was the gunslinger and who they predicted would have arm trouble through his career. Then Prior started with the little nicks and dings and all of a sudden he turned into one of those brittle pitchers that could not pitch unless he was 100% plus. He could not pitch with pain. There is a difference between being hurt and being injured, look at Nolan Ryan. He took the ball every time. Now the Cubbies sign another pitcher who is notorious for being on the IR, Rich Harden. You think they would have learned with Prior. Oh well, enough Cubbie bashing, though I got to say that back in the day Prior was supposed to be the second coming...he just never did!

But where is the highest concentration of true baseball fans?

I think it is Minn given the constant chatter on this board.

A question. Since Tampa has a payroll around 43.5 million, How much money will they make this year, now that they are in the World Series. My guess is a lot......

Well, the Strib had it on their front page in the sports section, ESPN discussed it today, TBS and Fox have both mentioned it during the play-offs, and I said it MONTHS AGO- the trade for Delmon Young is really starting to look like a bust for the Twins. When I said it MONTHS AGO half of you said I was crazy, NOPE- I was dead on. Plus I predicted the WS teams before the play-offs started, I am a genius when it comes to baseball laughwink

      I do mark my hole with a stick like spears do.

      Variable conditions seems to be the trend this season. This past weekend we had yet another snow storm which dumped approximately 10-12 inches in the Remer, Longville, Outing, and Walker area. Travel has been best still with sleds or track machines. Colder temps the past few weeks have firmed things up on some bodies of water which were once heavy laden with slush, however there are still several lakes that unfortunately we would not advise to travel on until things improve, and with the "January thaw" approaching that might be a while. If you are planning on traveling to the area, call the area resorts or bait shops to get current conditions prior. This past weekend was the Winter Inland Trout Opener. Stories of success were across the board. As some people had great success, others struggled. We ourselves definitely had noticed more lookers than takers on the Vexilar, but managed to get a few topside. Fighting the cold front that hit mid Saturday morning, being on the right body of water, and having the right presentation all factored in. Lake Trout: Lakers are hitting tipped tubes and spoons in 35'-70' of water. Look to the inside turns, points, and shelves. And the best advice I can give any fisherman targeting trout is STAY MOBILE. Keep moving until you get one on the graph, never spending more than 5-10 minutes in an inactive hole. And not only should you stay on the move, but keep that lure moving consistently, working the entire water column. Stream Trout: Try searching around 4'-9' of water on the stocked trout lakes. Small spoons like the Clam Speed Spoon tipped with a Maki Plastic or waxie have produced the best. Panfish: Hit the shallow weedlines for those big Gills, and drill out over the deep basins in 22'-35' feet of water to catch the Crappies. Tungsten jigs tipped with waxies have worked well. Again, the key to success is staying mobile. Walleye: Still can be found on the shoreline points anywhere from 11'-26' feet of water and on the sunken humps. Jigging using spoons tipped with a minnow head have been best when they have been aggressive. If your noticing them coming in yet seemingly shy of the jig, slow down your movement, and try a simpler presentation. Toss down a set-line with a plain hook tipped with a medium Shiner or small Sucker Minnow. Alice Wiese Wheezy Outdoors 218-275-7525 [email protected]

      Good tip on the sight fishing trout option Nick 👍
    • IceHawk
      I fish walleyes a bunch that's why I opted for the 8 inch K drill. But like we all know its not a true 8 😉 I know a lot of guys have 6 inch bits but most of them really only fish panfish from what I've seen.  Yes you can slip a decent eye through a 6 inch hole and many do with there accidental catches of them . But you start getting fish in the 24 plus range fairly often and the larger hole is definitely nicer to turn the head to get her to come up the hole. Its all a preference thing but personally if I'm targeting eyes I will go no less than 8 . And if you start chaseing greenbacks in Winninpeg  a 10 is even a better choice for there. Yes you can cut multiple  holes side by side with a 6 and this is another option if you rarely fish walleyes  with consistency.

      I'm not sure how the ice road is but I had -18 at my place near Ely last night. Tonight it should be right around 0 with a high tomorrow at 20. Hopefully that will help you out.     
    • Wanderer
      I won’t hold you to that! 😂  Thanks for the “offer”.   The hunt is fun too, I really don’t mind but a guy only has so much time.
    • monstermoose78
      I have not had an issue, but look at the 7 inch lazer hand auger. For trout I cut 4 -6inch holes so I can sight fish. I should add I use a 6 inch bit. 
    • Wanderer
      I’ve been able to get mid 20 inch pike up a 6 inch hole a few times but the 8 will help you turn the head easier, especially when the line is wrapped around the back side of the mandible.   Honestly my plan is to continue running the 6 inch but when I think I’m going to pike or walleye fish, the 8 will be with too.  I’ll used that after I dial in with the 6.   I’ll that I’ve over lapped 6’s in a pinch to get a bigger hole too.  I just wouldn’t do it for more than 1 tip up if I had an 8 handy.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      For those who run the drill rigs ( like myself) do you feel the 6” bit is big enough for walleye and pike fishing as well? Saves a lot of wear and battery life with the 6” than throwing the 8” on. What I’ve heard is most cases the 6” will be fine unless you hook into a lifetime fish.
