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.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
