anybody else think that black magic was on his way to a no-hitter?? 11K's throu 6. I think he might be finding he's summer magic. No win for him, but it was a very well pitched game. Twins need to keep him. He may be the best pitcher the Twins have ever had.

santana is a great pitcher yet but to go as far as the best they have ever had ?? i'm not too sure about that.. Viola was awesome in his day also. don't 4get about Bert either ..he gave up a longball or 2 but ALWAYS kept you in the game

a few stats between Frankie V and Black Magic;

FV- Wins 176 Loss 150 %.540. 3.73ERA. 2836IP, 864BB, 1844K.

JS- Wins 89 Loss 39 %.695 3.16ERA 1237IP, 347BB, 1302K.

With santana's W-L % of nearly .700 and nearly 11K per 9IP-

I'll take Black Magic any day of the week.-

most of Bert's stat's came from other teams, thou it's a joke he's not in the Hall with 60 Shutouts and 3800K's.

Mud . you can't deny that Sweet Music was a great pitcher when the game was on the line though right?? besides JS hasnt pitched as long as FV and his k's to IP is great yes but his ERA could get up there by FV's also in time

Sweet Music was a gamer, no doubt about it. In that regard-- santana has some things to learn. Black Magic was not so good , or say, unfortunate with run support agst Zito last year. I'd say that Santana has the best talent and stats, and sometimes that doesn't win big games. Either way- the Twins don't get guys like this very often. I hope they keep him around to get a chance again in a big game in the postseason.

Santana's are few and far between. I would guess he will go down as one of the best the Twins have ever seen. zThats pretty good company when mentioned with Frankie & bert.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
