Recommended Posts

i heard rick sutcliff on kfan today say he thinks cuddy will be an all star this year blush.gif as much as i would like to see this it will be very hard to down right impossible for him to go.he'll never get voted in as we all know it is a popularity contest and unless gardy is the manager he most likly wont be added.to bad he is just another example of a good player thats just not a superstar.might not be all bad though if he were to make it his price would just go up grin.gif

Let's see...right fielder Cuddyer or Guerrero? Lot's of better right fielders out there...Sheffield, if he's playing right for Detroit...is another. Fat chance for ol Cuddy I think. He did lead the AL with outfield assists last year I believe but, he's average defensively and offensively otherwise.

Going to be very hard to get votes. He is a decent OF with a very good arm and good batting numbers. But you need the glove and some web jems out there..

As long as somebody in the dugout reminds him how many outs there are, he should be fine! LOL

If I remember correctly, all three outfield positions get lumped into one. So he's not just competing against right fielders. Maybe Morneau will pull a hammy, Santana will pitch the day before the break, Nathan will be too tired after saving 70 games, Mauer will catch a cold, and Hunter will stub his big toe. The Twins still have to have one represenative at the game.

You are correct - which makes it impossible for him unless he puts up some serious offensive numbers!!!!

Cuddy would likely have to have close to MVP numbers for this season to be an All-Star next season, that's just the way it works with small market teams. I don't necessarily agree with it, but I still think it's true. Do I think he should be an All-Star this year? If he improves upon last years numbers, sure, if not, no, but he's very good.

Incidentally after some of the ridiculous things Rick Suttcliffe (sp) said in the Monday night game this week I now have to question things he says while broadcasting for other teams. Case in point, paraphrases of his Eastern media clouded bunk:

1)You know if Jeter wins the battle title last year he makes up the 15 votes to pass Mourneau.

2)Joe Mauer winning the batting title on the last day of the season gave him the MVP. (He didn't win it on the last day, he could have sat out & won it, he was already leading. He didn't sit out & went & got two more hits to prove he deserved it!)

3)How much higher could have Jeter's average been if he wasn't doing all the little things to get runners over batting in the two hole? (What, Mauer doesn't do those things in the three hole? Mauer attempted to bunt the runner over twice last night alone (4/11)! What about the virtual All-Star lineup batting all around Jeter, so they can't pitch around him?)

Rick was rickdiculous!

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.
