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.

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.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
