Hot Pale Hose Rumor!

Recommended Posts

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!

I do believe Pier is referencing the quotes by Ozzie to the effect of how he hates those Minn "Peer-on-yahs"

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.

      Those are great, thanks!  The Mink/Kimball combo might be the ticket as it also looks like there’s a sandy swimming beach on mink so when the kids get tired of humoring dad and his need to fish, they can play in the water!

      Noticed the same on North Long

      I don’t believe anyone has mentioned if they are bringing the traditional Friday night fish fry back ?  If so how is it ?     Really liked the salad bar / fish fry before they got rid of it …

      Thanks for the reports. Going to give it a try this evening. Got very frustrated and had to give it a break for a while. Hopefully things turned around a bit.

      Anglers have set new Minnesota state records for whitefish and golden redhorse. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources certified a record 13 pound, 9 ounce whitefish caught by an Oklahoma angler ice fishing on Lake of the Woods, and a 4 pound, 13 ounce golden redhorse caught by an angler who beat his own state record.  The DNR certifies state record fish in two categories: for fish caught and kept; and for caught and released northern pike, muskellunge, lake sturgeon and flathead catfish. Whitefish The Oklahoma angler, Billy King, was getting an introduction to Minnesota ice fishing with two other anglers April 6. They were catching walleye, sauger, and tulibee, and in the evening were fishing near a sandbar for the sunset walleye bite on Lake of the Woods. Despite the others initially catching more fish, King stuck to his spot on the ice and was rewarded with not only the biggest walleye of the day, but soon after, the huge whitefish. “This turned out to be the trip of a lifetime and I have to say that everyone was so nice. Not just in relation to the potential new state record but everyone was so polite and welcoming. It made the trip all the more enjoyable,” King said. Golden redhorse Ethan Rasset – already a state record holder for golden redhorse – was fishing for redhorse March 24 on the Otter Tail River with a friend from college. Rasset caught the record 4 pound, 13 ounce fish with a chartreuse curly-tail artificial lure, on a shallow flat with rubble that had produced a few smaller golden redhorse earlier in the morning. His previous record was a 4-pound, 8-ounce golden redhorse he caught in April 2018 on the Otter Tail River. Rasset said he was quite excited when he suspected he may have broken his own record. “Very few people can say they have broken a state record twice!” Rasset said. Current records and information about how to submit documentation for a record fish are available at mndnr.gov/recordfish. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Maybe he or she was trying to invent the "hashbrown pizza". 😆 With bacon and cheese it might not be too bad.

      The Sip remains higher than usual for mid June.  (it’s current height is more what I see in early/mid may but there’s plenty of good shore spaces to throw a line.) Water is warm—70’s.  Water is quite clear for the Sip—lack of rain in past ~2 weeks is limiting runoff (that’ll change apparently this weekend…) Smallies are getting more active and taking variety of baits—surface/cranks/etc… Suckers are done running…☹️ Walleyes are moving deeper (...I usually find them tough to target during day until water cools down again in fall) Panfish have moved into the shallow/flats   Daughter and I were fishing yesterday morning and got 3 nice sunnies, 2 smaller wallies, and 1 healthy, feisty smallie—fishing with crawlers.  (bite was nibbly:  We lost quite a few worms compared to the fish we landed…--overall seemed a bit disappointing and less active than we expected… but that’s fishing.  We were hoping the kitties might be active but didn’t find any…  ?Weather change this weekend might change things.)   River seems to be settling into its usual summer pattern;  we were pleasantly surprised at how morning fishing from a shady/tree lined shore and neither or us saw a single mosquito!  (there were quite a few small mayflies 2 weeks ago and they’re all but gone.  Wonder if that could be part of the sluggish bite?)

      Mink lake right by Kimball has a trail on the south end off the road you can walk. It's pretty cool you end up on some small cliffs you can fish off of. There is trout in there also. Pine trestle over by Two island has Splake in it has nice shore fishing spots caught a few there.

      Down by Nisswa Mn on lake Edward two weeks ago was a full blow hatch they were every where and you had to keep your mouth shut or eat one!! 😕  
    • gunner55
      Seen a few on the surface in the last week but no full blown hatch here yet near Bowstring, Winnie/Cut Foot. Some big clouds over the deeper mud on the graph too. Had just < 67* surface temps last night & early today.
