Radke

Anybody else want to see Radke come back? I know i really would, some people might not agree with me but i think he would do just fine next year as their 4 or 5 starter. I know he gives up to many home runs but after that rough start this year he had pretty good numbers. I couldn't believe the heart that he showed playing with that bum shoulder. I guess i would really like to see him come back no matter how he does next year, i think it would be really nice for them to get a ring for him; i think they have a good shot if they add a couple players; just because of how he stuck with the team in the 90's when they were horrible and he was still a 20 game winner. What do you guys think?

Everyone dreams to go out on top. That did not happen for Brad this year but he did have a good ride. He is a young guy still and I think he needs to heal that shoulder and then take a look at playing again if he wants. I would say that he has been playing ball for more then 25 years. Maybe he is ready to move on. Would make a fine pitching coach. Always could throw with control and there is no questioning the guy has heart and a love for the game.

Yeah I would agree he set a great example for the young guys on the staff on how to pitch through pain. I hope he has surgery this offseason, takes next year off and lets everything heal up and then maybe come back the following year.

I would love to seem him come back as a 4th or 5th starter/mentor but I don't see it. If it was just the pain and rehab staring him in the face he probably would, but he usually cites a desire to be with his kids more and watch them grow up. I don't think that one is negotiable to him anymore.

The guy can't even pick up his kids right now. That arm is SHOT. There is no way he should or will come back...

To tell ya the truth if Radke came back he would have to come back for about 1 million a year, we need his salary freed up.

I would like to see him back, but I really wonder if his shoulder would allow him to perform as good as he wants to.

Radke would be #4 or #5 if he absolutely had to, but I don't think he wants to. He's been the backbone of the team for a long time. As much as I don't want to see him go, it's time for him to go fishing.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
