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

Matt Garza...ALCS MVP...

Said it MONTHS AGO- give us him back, and they can have Delmon (I don't look so) Young.

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!

I hope the rays win it. Be nice to see a low market team win it. I wonder what the tv ratings are going to be with no high market team in it!

But where is the highest concentration of true baseball fans?

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

We do have serious fans here. Ive noticed that alot of people Ive met from around the country that claim to be baseball fans seem to know less about their favorite teams than I know about their fav team!

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

Anyone else agree?

      Nice work gents! Looks like the back-end of summer bite is heating up. Love this time of year as we head into Sept. How is the water level with all the storms passing through? Has looked rainy lately. Last I was up was early July after that 8" rain storm and the levels were back up to normal after being low in June.

      Good luck fishing! Im also fond of fly fishing. I find it easier to fish when you have the best fly fishing rods. If youre looking to upgrade your rod, you can check here.

      Seven specie day today.  Live bait not required!  Couple of things of note...   I caught eight nice crappies this morning on a deep rock reef, along with a bunch of plump gills. Seems odd, but I’ll take it.  This afternoon, I targeted ciscos and whitefish out over the basin. Success!  Was happy since I now know whitefish can be targeted year round, not just thru the ice.  I also enjoyed the challenge of a different species that not many folks know about.  Was a unique and fun experience.  By the way, everything I caught was immediately released.

      Congratulations on your retirement bfisherman11! I hope you enjoy every moment of it!

      Our week (7/25-8/1) wasn't greatly productive fish wise but I could never really get a pattern to work. I usually use a lindy rig with a half crawler. When we did try jig/minnow not much either. The start of the week the wind was tough to hold on a spot. Later we had no wind and high temps. I marked some surface temps that were like 78 deg, that's pretty warm.   I went down to Brule narrows one day, never been before. Picked a reef and caught a 19" eye pretty quick and then boat control got to be an issue.   Might try a week in Sept once I am retired (Friday is my last day) but I sure miss the ability to fish north of the border.   Bill

      What is the best time of year for brookies. I've tried spring but waters too cold, summer, bugs bad but fishing good. Never tried fall but I am think that might be the ticket. Usually use worms but sometimes spinner. Is there a special trick to keep the chubs away? Lots of them in my creek.

      Good luck with your toilet. LOL Let me know how it works after a weekend when the kids and grandkids are there using it? Not sure how the Biolet works, we had a top of the line Sun Mar. There is a tray in the bottom of the unit that is supposed to hold the extra urine that goes through the compost material. After a weekend with 5 females, and 3 males using it that tray would be full to overflowing. Wouldn't have been a problem if the girls would have cleaned it out. They didn't, I had to. The whole bottom of that unit would have an inch of urine in there, that is GROSS!   Oh yea, there's an overflow tube on the Sun Mar. This would fill up with the fine compost material, and plug up, now where do you think the overflow goes? And yes, I had 2 fans in my exhaust pipe, no it didn't help it dry out any faster, but they did help keep the smell down. The only thing I can say about ours is that there are plenty of people out there that wanted to buy it when we were done using it. They do keep a good value, especially up here. If I was you I'd check out more than one brand, and one user. I'm guessin if you posted a question on facebook, you might get a variety of user opinions. We hated ours, maybe you'll love yours. I'll just leave this topic alone, and wish you good luck. lol Jim
