Just heard that my beloved Pale Hose are sniffing around Bobby Abreau. Anybody else hear anything along those lines?

Still has a lot of game left. Would be a good pick up. Can't believe he hasn't been signed yet.

B. Amish

probably has something to do with how much he and his agent are asking for. a.k.a. manny and his agent not accepting a one year 25 million offer.

some of these aging super stars just have to accept the fact that they aren't going to command top dollar anymore.

MLB on XM radio reported yesterday that the offer was 8 million.

The Sox would need to trade Dye before taking on more salary.

Perfect signing for the Sox. Old guy that costs alot. He is a professional hitter though. Would be an ok pickup. His fielding is nothing special though.

When will they learn. They did best when they went with youth, speed, and guys the play the game hard. Member 06?

Actually 4wand we beat them. Both teams played a full 162 game season ending with the same record and we won the season series 10-8.... which means we were a better team...period end of discussion.

The Sox will have to dump Jermaine Dye before signing BA.. in other words it aint happening!

Nice catch Wandering, don't want to open that Pandora's Box again, you can see the evil spirits already leaking out from Pier. We know who won and who went home early but no need to stir that pot anymore....I GUESS I JUST DID! Oh well, Spring Training is right around the corner, might as well get the party started! LOL

How could you consider the Whitesox a better team then the Twins last year?

Even with the ROB JOB playoff game at the weeker teams site we still in-spite of that travisty had a 10-9 advantage?

Ok just to keep it simple, how about I say them old cootes are almost or just as good as our young upcoming team!

But we were the ones watching all of the playoffs on tv, instead of playing!

Keep stirring that pot Wandering! I Love It. Maybe I can find a picture of our 2008 Division Champs hat and post it here! LOL

If you look at the record books it shows the Sox as Central Division Champs, ask Pier what it says after the Twins, go ahead ask him! LOL

Sled,

I don't think the playoffs went out to the smaller markets! Or maybe you did not have enough aluminum foil on the rabbit ears!

Actually the White Sox were in the playoffs but as usual no-body cared or can remember it..... smile

If memory serves me right they got swept?... Wait maybe Blogolevich paid off his Mob Buddy's and the Sox won A game. Thats how they roll in Chi Town ya know!

Pier,

Actually they did manage to win one game and Blago is a Cubs fan. Our number one fan now resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and will be throwing out the first pitch on Opening Day!

Who cares who Blago or Obama is a fan of??? By the way, No World Series win in 100 years or not, the Cubs fans in Chicago, and anywhere else for that matter out number White Sox fans 20-1.

      Hello. This is a post for those interested in the Bayport area.   Many anglers are waiting for the river to freeze to get after the big river crappie. Right now the Bayport pool is skim iced over. The Bayport area of the St. Croix River is the best and safest place on the river for crappie fishing. The Crappie bite can be very good, but as a whole not the most consistent. Normally the morning bite is be the best though, from a half hour after sun up till 8:30, with an ok bite from 3:00 till sun down.  Techniques that catch crappies: Crappie minnow and bobber on a #6 hook or small jig.  Space out your lines in terms of depth above bottom as these crappies suspend up to 18 feet of the bottom, though four to ten feet above bottom is more common than 18’.  Smaller crappie minnows work better than the larger ones for numbers of caught crappies; minnow heads can be productive on jigs (for anglers actively jigging) instead of a whole minnow when the bite is slow. Crappies always roam the basin; this soft fluffy bottom covers the majority of the Bayport pool, and the majority of the basin is 33 to 36 fow.  Also the shallower basin (the north part of the pool) in 26 to 30 feet can also be productive.  Without a doubt these crappie roam and a mobile angler does better.  Walleye and sauger catches remain inconsistent traditionally, and a few being taken constitutes a good day (15” minimum size for walleye), Jigging Rap’s are a best bet to tangle with river walleyes and saug dogs (glow green tiger, clown, and rainbow trout colors in sizes W3, W5, and W7) either tipped with a minnow head or plain.  White bass are a bonus and very good out of the ice-cold water the top loin is white meat and good eating. Avoid the meat.  Trucks will eventually drive on the ice, but it is a river folks!  Please be aware that there is open water on the river. Because of currents, I would not drive within a mile of the train bridge (swing bridge) near Hudson or the New Stillwater bridge.  The NSP plant also has a warm water discharge.  The Malileau Dam also flows into the Bayport pool. Learn the river in the day and stay on the beaten path until you are experienced enough. Keep Catchin’ Turk

      So the weeks betwixt point and click and smoke pole deer hunting always have my ire up to get that last Musky Missile into my hands.  Gotta scrub that slime into my glove until next year.  Going to give the Mississippi below Falls a try here in a few hours.   Might find it frozen, might find a spot to get in.   I'll bring my boat because I'm an optimist,  but I'll bet the kayak is where i end up.    Wish me luck, otherwise I have a scheme on my mind for my favorite frozen central mn musky lake.

      On the main basin... Ice is making progress and now covers Lake of the Woods. Satellite images from 11-17-18 show the majority of the lake locked up with various pockets of open water. A very welcomed sign, but way too early to be on the main lake. Some spearing for pike taking place on Bostic Bay. Spearers are often the first on the ice. Please use resort marked trails and exercise safety precautions as ice thickness is varied. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River and Four Mile Bay is frozen over with various pockets of open water. Currently, higher than normal current. Areas of the river locked up earlier in the week. Up at the NW Angle... The NW Angle is locked with ice. Higher than normal current. As always, neck down and other areas with current are iffy. Mainly airboat traffic between islands thus far. Work through resorts and stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins. Safety first. We are getting closer!
