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

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
