Wilson Ramos kidnapped in Venezuela

Recommended Posts

mrklean

Just read an article Ramos was kidnapped, no demand for him have been made. Maybe that was bill smiths first move try and get something back for that horrible capps trade...sorry that was a bad joke. Hopefully he is returned soon, most of the crazies down there kidnap for cash so hopefully everthing will turn out ok

My prayers are with him. This is just terrible. I've read things in the past about players from down there having full time security protecting their houses. Didn't something like this happen to a relative of Johan Santana? Maybe I'm wrong but I know he was at least concerned about it.

With the wealth that many of these guys get in the United States, it would seem that MLB should strongly encourage them to hire protection services in their home countries (if they live in a country where abduction is a concern).

"Police last year said that 618 kidnappings were reported in 2009, and the numbers have grown rapidly in recent years. Security experts say the real number of kidnappings is much higher because many cases aren't reported to authorities."

That is a stagering number of kidnappings. I would not go out of the house with out people protecting me and having a gun on me as well.

They should have waited a year or so he only made 450 last year. 99 percent chance he will be released unharmed~

you think its really that high? With how crazy some of those people are down there i was thinking like 75%, you would think if they wanted money they would have said it right away been almost a full day with no contact

Not to make light of the situation, I hope all works out out well.

But...

Do you think the kidnappers would take Matt Capps and player to be named later?

      Found a minimum of 15" on one local lake. Toping out to 19" in one spot. Average was 16". Bringing the wheelhouse out this weekend.

      We are new to Minnesota fishing, I've read you can have 3 hooks within 9" on a tip up.  Can you have a minnow on each hook?  Or only allowed one bait, for example, a 9" smelt with all the hooks attached?  Kind of a man made lure.

      Last I heard was it was really tough going North side of pine when you're headed east towards the portage. There was significant slush. We've since gotten 15-16 additional inches of snow since that time as well which only made matters worse.

      Was up on the pond from Monday to Wednesday last week.  Slow afternoon bite.  Action was best from midnight to 4am.  Mornings were good too.  Malmo market has all your bait needs.  Shiners are hard to come by, and worked the best.  17 inches of ice on North end.  Used castaways roads.

      Harmie Welcome to the site! Thanks for the Awesome report. Me and a few buddies are kicking around the idea of going up this weekend and shredding some ice hopefully if we go we have some success. Where did u pick up your Small suckers from?
    • Harmie343
      Was up on Mille Lacs Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. Saw 16”+ ice in St. Albans bay area. Off first break but before flats. Some sketchy spots where auger would rip through like styrofoam. Found about 6” of clear ice with 12” white ice/frozen slush in that area. 16”+ good ice 30 yards away. Off road travel was ok, just keep a heads up for big drifts. Bite seemed to be getting better as we were leaving with some aggressive fish Monday mid morning. Set lines with Suckers and jigging spoons were getting attention. Smaller fish flying around the electronics-thinking tullibee

      Bubba is one of the newest ones to hit the market. I haven't tested one yet but hopefully someone has. I have a  few different ones Old Henry, Rapala, Cutco. And a couple elctrics. Have to Agree with Rick G on this one hands down the best I have used is still the Cutco for a manual knife and for the best bang for buck the Mister twister for a electric.  Tough to beat a leech Lake  for looks and  Craftsmanship just haven't wrecked the Cutco yet. My next one will be the leech. We have a set of the Cutco knives for ordinary cooking and I love them. Was a little upset when wife bought the set because u could almost buy a small car for the price 😲 But they have proven themselves over and over again and she made a believer out of me. 
    • Rick G
      Honestly, the odd times I keep a few I been using a electric.... but will break the old Cutco out from time to time😁
    • leech~~
      If I could afford a $129 Wusthof.  I'd get the Leech Lake knife instead!  I stare at them every time I'm in Reeds, but just can't pull the trigger so I keep using one of the other 5 cheap knives I have. 🙁

      still using my leech lake knife............
