Egghead: A type of lead sinker, when coupled with 2lb fluorocarbon leader and bait, will allow you to catch more trout than anyone else on the lake.

Did I hear on the radio this morning that Sano is going to need a steel rod imbedded into his shin bone?

According to Levine, it is one of several options being considered. They prefer to not have to do it, but they haven't ruled it out.

The part about in tradition with the family plan is talking about saving the Pohlad’s money,
which is part of Levine’s job.

No. Bernie Taupin, Elton's lyricist, said he simply liked the name and it had nothing to do with Levon Helm. Levon Helm was the drummer for one of the greatest groups of all time, The Band.

Sounds like you catch trout using live bait....isn't that a no no for trout fishing? If you were fly fishing, don't you want the line and fly to stay on the water? If you use an egghead, you are sinking the line aren't you?

This is what is used for kids, mine and my friend’s kids who ask me to take them fishing.
Usually use either power bait or a worm with it.

I am a snob fly fisherman who turns his nose up at bait fisherman.
As for sinking, trout eat sub surface 90% of the time, so you usually have a wet fly or sinking fly line, but
catching them on a dry fly on the surface is the preferred method if the fish are willing.

The Twins have the day off.
Any content in the off season is good content.

Great!

Let's talk about the new Star Wars movie.

It make Luke Skywalker look like a scared little wuss and failure as a Jedi.

It looked like Rey may be leaning dark side.

It looked like Ben/Kylo Ren was going to kill his Mom too (a good way to end the Leia character as Carrie Fisher is dead). I don't see how he could be redeemed after killing his parents.

Snoke isn't just a hologram this coming movie. and Finn and Phamsa have a brouhaha.

I am getting very excited about this film. Need to temper my expectations.

So apparently Wren had Mommy issues as well as Daddy issues. Sorry Scott, he has to be one of the weakest villains ever.

I just want more time to fish. Just got back from the lake........took out the dock, built steps for the porch, mowed lawn, grilled twice. No time for fishing.

Maybe in a few years when I retire.

I do like Berkley Power bait. Berkley Bedell was a US congressman from Iowa. Had a fishing tackle business out of Storm Lake Iowa. Democrat and very reasonable. Unlike the nutcase from the 4th district known as Steve King.

Don't forget he was a scared little wuss until he whacked his Dad's hand off...then turned around and was a wuss until dad save his ass.

Fansided: One move every MLB team should make

MN:
Minnesota Twins: Extend Brian Dozier

Fluky or not, the Twins went back to the playoffs this year. This year’s team went one step further than the 2015 squad that missed the postseason by a few games. Do the Twins have what it takes to sustain a winning club, or will they slide back down like 2016? A full slide all the way down to last place is unlikely, but the Twins are still on shaky ground.

Minnesota needs to address deficiencies in the starting rotation. Bartolo Colon, Dillon Gee and Kyle Gibson were starting crucial games in a pennant race for God’s sake. This year’s free-agent class just does not offer any huge upgrades. Jason Vargas coming over from Kansas City and continuing to pitch in the AL Central with its pitcher-friendly parks makes sense for the Twins.

Without a ton of money to throw around on starting pitching, the Twins will likely only make a minor move in that regard. After adding a starter, the front office should focus its attention on getting an extension done for All-Star second baseman Brian Dozier. The 30-year-old proved this year that his 42-homer year in 2016 was not a fluke with 34 more home runs and a solid .269/.357/.496 slash line.

Dozier’s current contract is set to expire after next season. He has earned much more than his last deal for four years and $20 million. Dozier should at least triple that $20 million over four more years.
