What a start to the season

Recommended Posts

genegodawa

Oh Windy,

I don't care the outcome, but I like the start of the season:

Going into the bottom of the first: CLE 5, WSox -0-

Not to steal your thunder, Geno, but the Twins just won their season opener.

That's a better way to start the season!!!

Santana just needs to start keeping the ball down.

I liked what I saw from Santana last night. For a guy who starts each year out slow (by his elevated standards) that was a pretty good start. I wanted to see Morneau get up another time and see if he could tie Lou Pinella's record of getting thown out at all four bases in one game. laugh.gif

Yep, that was a good one. Good games by the guys you need good games from. We all know Santana will only get better. Did anybody else expect to see Radke's first pitch, 0-0 count, top of the first inning to land in left field grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I loved Morneau's comment after the game saying he was trying to help the O's lead the league in outfield assists. I loved watching the game last night, the twins were aggresive in all aspects and kept the O's on their heels, the lineup looks good from 1 to 9 and hopefully out starting pitching can keep us in it through the sixth. I'm surious to see what form Boof is in tonight.

Boof , as stupid as it sounds, is the key to Twins hopes for postseason. If he improves on last year and hitters don't figure him out like they do on lots of soph pitchers, the TWins always play the game the right way-- Expect around 90 wins and playoff berth. I see the Tigers on a downfall.

On a postive note both Hunter and Morneau are on pace to hit 162 HR's this year. grin.gif

On the down side, Cuddyer is on pace to strike out 486 times. frown.gifgrin.gif

Where can I get my playoff tickets?

The only twins without hits were white and bartlett. White got a BB. And bartlett lined out to the SS with men on base. Things are looking sweet.

Wow,

The Twinks and the Cubbies in the World Series!!!

This is gonna be great (pardon my Flounder-ism there from Animal House) So Geno, nice start to the season for the Cubbies, that power packed line up really throttled the opposing pitcher. If they keep this pace up they will have 162 runs at the end of the year, not to worry though Kerry Wood and Mark Prior will pitch shutouts every game they start..........I said, Every Game They Start....Tee Hee!

Hey Windy,

Just got a call from Prior and Wood - they told me to check the scoreboard --- looks like the PaleHose are gonna come from ahead to lose today. They also saide, by the way, NICE shutout by Garland today. The WSox staff gonna have an even worse ERA this year compared to last?

Hey Geno,

I just heard an interesting fact. In the past 30 years, how many years did the Cubbies finish over .500????

How many years have the Sox finished over .500????

Sleep well my friend, until you find the answer to these questions....Here's to the new season, any wagers??? Sox record vs Cubs??? You name the price and I will take the bet. How about 1 week of avatar of winners choice for every game difference. We can go month to month or season total. You can plan on having to look at the Sox Championship Ring with your name on it for about 15 weeks!!!

Do we have a bet???

Thataway Windy, evade the issue as usual.

Here's what I plan: WSox in 4th, Cubs to the WS.

Who are you - Jethro Tull? Talk about Living in the Past, sheesh. Lessee, the Cubs are .500 now----TODAY---not 15 weeks ago. What are the WSox? Never mind, that was a rhetorical question. (But just to gloat while I still can, I'd like to state the obvious: WSox are "oh-fer" - O for the season! Nyuk, nyuk.)

I've already made one bet this year with a fishing buddy that by the time we get to PHole lunch on our Cass trip, the Flubbies will be ahead of the Cards. One pitcher of ice cold beer will be used to celebrate my winnings.

As for our bet, how's about we compare monthly recods so that gives us 6 diff bets (Apr - Sept)? Hey, wait a minute: didn't we already bet a dinner of Cass Walters...Cubs against the field? I'm gonna have to go back and review some old posts.

Ah, forget it. You'd probably just evade the bet anyway.

PS Twins lead WSox by 2 1/2 - and the WSox are only 2 games into the season!

Spinner,

I've been dealing with this my entire life. My two best friends since 1st grade were a die hard Cub fan and a die hard Sox fan. The other die hard Sox fan eventually became my best man and the Cub fan ended up moving to Las Vegas when he was in the 8th grade. I don't know what that means but I honed my arguing skills in 1969, you remember that season right Geno? One of the greatest seasons for Sox fans as we watched the Cubbies go down faster than Linda Lovelace at a batchelors party. It was sweet listening to my friend crow for 4 months about how great the Cubbies were and then BAM (pardon my Emeril-ism there)

OK Geno, it is a bet, at the end of each month the team with the worst record has to post the winners choice of avatar for one week. It will be a cumulative record, not individual segments.

So I have to ask you this Geno........

DEAL OR NO DEAL???????????

It's all good Windy. I love coming here for my daily dose of Sox smack. It's no fun if the bad guys won't play. BTW, you're one of the most vocal prognosticators, so lets see your predictions posted on the 2007 Playoff thread before the season gets too old. I know you got an opinion. grin.gif

All right Geno,

Start looking for your favorite Cubbie avatar, you are already looking at my favorite Sox one........

On second thought, what am I saying, the Cubbies will never be ahead of the Sox this season, don't bother looking for a Cubs avatar, YOU WON'T NEED ONE!!!! LOL

      Do you have any tips for fishing Fish Lake this time of year? I'm gonna try it out in the next few days... Is it typically an early morning, late evening bite or can you get them all day long? Thanks for any info.
    • PRO-V
      Calling them would be your best bet. Maybe you can reserve some on a card.
    • delcecchi
      starft you off.... https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/lake.html?id=69066000 http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/data/lakemaps/b0537011.pdf Status of the Fishery Ely Lake is located approximately 2 miles SE of the city of Eveleth. This popular lake is highly developed with homes and cabins. There is a small seaplane base and two public swimming beaches also located there. Water clarity is good and large amounts of aquatic vegetation can be found throughout the lake. 

      There is a concrete planked boat ramp and dock located near the NE end of the lake off Cedar Island Drive (CR629) for public access. The parking space is somewhat limited near the ramp. Several private accesses are also present. 

      Thirteen species of fish were sampled during the 2017 survey on Ely Lake. Gill nets, trap nets and night electrofishing were all used to sample the fish community. Small bluegill were common in the gill net catch (34%) and abundant in the trap net catch (57%). Other panfish species including hybrid sunfish, pumpkinseed, green sunfish and black crappie were also sampled in good numbers. Largemouth bass outnumbered smallmouth bass in the 2017 sample. Walleye (16%) contributed to the gill net catch and several were sampled in the trap nets. Yellow perch are present in average amounts and some good sized pike were again sampled during the 2017 survey. 

      Bluegill numbers in 2017 (72.1/trap net) were much higher than the long term average (31.6/trap net) on Ely Lake and greatly above average (7.9/trap net) compared to other similar lakes in the area. The average bluegill sampled was 5.6 inches long and about 6 years old. Approximately 66% of the bluegill sampled with the trap nets were under 6 inches with a maximum size recorded of 8.0 inches. Bluegill sampled with the gill nets had a similar size structure. Approximately 7% of the hybrid sunfish sampled in the trap nets were 8 inches or larger. Several pumpkinseeds were also in this size range. 

      Largemouth bass (92%) and smallmouth bass (8%) were sampled during the night electrofishing effort. The average largemouth sampled was 10.9 inches which is similar to the historic average of 10.6 inches. The biggest largemouth sampled was 18.5 inches. Approximately 33% of the largemouth sampled were 12 inches or larger. The average smallmouth sampled was 9.8 inches which is slightly larger than the historic average (8.4 inches). The largest smallmouth sampled was 16.8 inches long. Approximately 32% of the smallmouth sampled were 12 inches or larger. Largemouth bass were also sampled from the gill nets and trap nets in numbers above average. 

      Walleye numbers in 2017 (6.2/gill net) were similar to the historic average (6.1/gill net) on Ely Lake and slightly above average (5.0/gill net) when compared to other similar area lakes with walleye. The average walleye sampled was 15.5 inches and about 4 years old. Approximately 34% of the walleye sampled were 15 inches or larger up to a maximum of nearly 29 inches. Walleye fingerlings are currently being stocked during even-numbered years and in 2017 approximately 62% of the walleye aged came from years where stocking occurred. 

      Northern pike numbers in 2017 (1.1/gill net) were similar to the historic average (1.3/gill net) and below average (3.2/gill net) compared to other similar area lakes with pike. The average pike sampled was 26.8 inches which is similar to the historic average length of 26.3 inches. The largest pike sampled in 2017 was 35.2 inches long and sampled with a trap net.

      Yes they do. Many resorts are set up for summer usage. Understand you can't use your FH in the storage lots. Only in a summer use lot. You have to pay for it. The cost is in addition to your winter fees. Usually more $ but the season is longer. The county requires the resorts to have bathroom facilities within a certain distance. Mac's Twin Bay has summer lots as do many others. Hunter's Point is another. Doubt Brandt's is set up for summer.

      Sweet! Heading back up tonight through the weekend. Bringing the wife and little one this time instead of my buddies, hopefully the weather cooperates.

      Heading up Sat morning and will be looking for Shiners. Anyone know if the Gateway and/or Kab Outdoors have them in stock??    Thanks for the input.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan
    • crappieslapper
      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan
    • huntnfish
      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though. 
    • Hoey
      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.
