its nice to see on most fantasy baseball advice boards is the twins have the highest ranked catcher (mauer) the highest ranked starting pitcher (santana) and the highest ranked closer (nathen). justin morneu is not the highest ranked first baseman, since there are soo many good ones, but he still comes in at the 24th best of all postions.

looks like another division title. grin.gif

I'm in again this year, I think the regular season winner should get something this year smile.gif Any interest in $5 giftcards as payment this year? Last year it cost me $7 to ship my $5 lures. Just an idea... We could even do $10 gift cards and save money. We could even do a 1st 2nd 3rd then... Last year was great! should be another great seaon. let's try to get everyone paid before the season this year

I was just thinking that I should post up about Fantasy Baseball 2007. I am getting spring fever bad, open water fishing and baseball. Its only February! I think a $5.00 gift card to a sporting goods store would work too if you want to do it. Up to the individual. Last year I think we went 10 for 12 on the lures. It has gotten better every year, but lets get 100% this year.

Auto draft again this year?

Here are the stat catagories from last year:

R, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

Bushwacker, I'd like to be in the league again. I'm O.K. with the stat categories you listed. I would be in favor of a limit on transactions. I remember a live draft last year.

I'll get one started up. Lets give the guys from last year a couple days to get in first, but then we can open it up to new guys. If you are registering for this league, you are committing to sending in a lure worth $5 or a $5 gift certificate to a sporting goods store. It is a winner take all deal. $5 a guy isn't much, but it makes it interesting until the end of the year. I will post up the info in a little bit. This is actually the 3rd season of the FM Fantasy Baseball League for a Lure. grin.gif

I have the league all set to go and all of the owners from last year have been sent an email with the league name and password needed to register. It is exactly the same settings as last year. I have all of the emails except the two that made them private with Yahoo. The team names were Ballers and Roosterfish. So if you are either of those two send me an email at mtrierwe @ yahoo . com and I will get you the info. We will keep it private for two days then I will post the league info on here to fill in the rest of the teams. Lets have another fun year!

I'm in!

Bushwackers, who didn't pay last year? We should get those two replaced or get their lures before the draft. It sucks when everyone else pays then two stiff the winner. Just a thought.

Also, any thoughts about limiting transactions? That wouldn't be too bad of an idea. It makes the pitching a little more valuable at draft time... again, just a thought.

Good luck, looking forward to the draft!

Got mine in. I agree with the limiting of trades, makes it more interesting when you have to rely on your picks (with some room for adjustment) instead of facing a team that has 50 different pitchers a week frown.gif. Just my humble opinion. Good luck to all. Should be a fun year again.......

      I have a couple Garmins and I like them a lot, especially the new touchscreen.

      So any idea how far along the lakes are to opening up. Headed that way first weekend of May.

      Volk, a community prevention specialist for the state Department of Human Services and also a member of the Lincoln city council, asked to put to rest a rumor that he snagged the fish. He hooked the fish in the mouth, he said, and it wrapped itself in line as it fought. The mouth hook was certified by Game and Fish, Volk said. A snagged fish would not count as a record.
    • eyeguy 54
      where are these videos? Game and fish said not snagged. hmmmm.

      Cube the breast meat, and marinate it in buttermilk overnight, then dredge it in whatever you use to fry fish, and pan fry it until golden brown.  I like to use peanut oil, because you can get it really hot. You only need a half inch or so of oil in the pan, they fry up quickly. Very good, and I have tried it many ways. You could trim out the dark meat, and do it the same way.
    • huntnfish
      Definitely a huge fish. I don’t know if it was snagged or not but there are a couple videos that look like a hook being removed from the back of the fish. Kind of tough to tell for sure from the videos though. If you go to the ND game and fish Facebook page you can find them.

      Warm temperatures and dry conditions mean increased wildfire risk, so the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will restrict open burning in the following counties effective immediately: Anoka, Benton, Chisago, Douglas, Grant, Hennepin, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Pope, Ramsey, Sherburne, Stearns, Stevens, Todd, Traverse, Washington, and Wright.  The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste in these counties until restrictions are lifted. “Escaped debris burns are the number one cause of wildfires, so that’s why we issue these restrictions,” said Casey McCoy, DNR fire prevention supervisor. “They really work—we’ve reduced wildfires by nearly a third since we started spring burning restrictions in 2001.” McCoy encourages residents to use alternatives to burning, such as composting, chipping, or taking brush to a collection site. For information on how to compost yard debris, visit the DNR’s guide to composting yard debris. People who burn debris will be held financially responsible if their fire escapes and burns other property. Burning restrictions will be adjusted, including extension of restrictions to additional counties, as conditions change. For information and daily updates on current fire risk and open burning restrictions, visit the Minnesota DNR website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Flying a drone can be a lot of fun—but it can be downright dangerous during a wildfire, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Most people wouldn’t dream of driving their car in front of a fire engine that’s responding to a fire,” said Casey McCoy, the DNR’s fire prevention supervisor. “Flying your drone during a wildfire is just as reckless: we have to ground our planes until the drone gets out of the way, and that slows down our ability to fight the fire.” This happened last year during a wildfire in Little Falls: DNR pilots had to land firefighting helicopters because a drone was buzzing overhead. According to McCoy, “interfering with fire operations in this way is dangerous for our aircraft, firefighters on the ground, and the general public.” The reason drones pose such a problem is because they fly at roughly the same altitude as wildfire suppression aircraft. Even a small drone can cause a fire-fighting helicopter to crash if the drone makes contact with the aircraft. Flying a drone over a wildfire isn’t just dangerous, it’s illegal: Federal law prohibits interfering with firefighting operations, and that includes flying a drone over a wildfire. To protect firefighting aircraft, temporary flight restrictions may extend over a 5-mile radius of a wildfire. Even if temporary flight restrictions are not in place, people will be penalized if their drone is caught near a wildfire. Be fire wise and fire safe. No photo or video is worth the risk. Drop the drone near all wildfires. For more information about drones and wildfires, log onto the National Interagency Fire Center. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
