Ramon Ortiz Gone

7 posts in this topic

What does everyone think of Ortiz getting traded to the Rockies for a minor leaguer? I think it isn't a bad trade at least we got something for a pitcher that wasn't worth a darn and definetly did not need to be here next year.

Good trade. Weren't using him that much anyway. Saved some money and got us a AAA 3rd baseman. We're still stacked at pitching right now.

It's Ok but Gardenhire seemed fairly disapointed when he anounced it after the game the other night. Ramon was good in the clubhouse, took his demotion from starter well, and he did a good job filling his role (pitiching garbage time). Having said that, the trade is probably good for him (Rockies have a shot and need pitching, Ramon wants to start) and a decent AAA prospect is always good to have.

The Twins gave him over $3 million and he proved to be a failure. At least they saved $800,000 he would have been paid for the rest of the season.

Well he did get 4 wins at a better price then Clemens gets per win. Was only signed for this year as a starter that did not work. Good looking prospect in trade...

I think it's one of those moves that just makes good baseball sense. Ryan mostly makes those, sometimes there's some moves he doesn't make that I think would make good baseball sense too, but overall, in the long run, his moves are pretty solid.

What has happened the last two years? Lousy veterans who don't pan out are trusted upon to help the team and end up leaving (with the exeption of Mr. White). Batista, White, Ortiz, Ponson, all crappy and none have helped. I wish the Twins wouldn't waste money and just focus on our own guys (Garza, Baker, Slowey) and getting our home grown veterans signed.

Staying on topic, I am against the trade because it shouldn't have happened in the first place because Ortiz shouldn't have been on the team in the first place! (did that make any sense?) confused.gif

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
