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

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
