Our Boy Lohse

5 posts in this topic

Well, keep your fingers crossed. He is going to make another attempt to hold a team to 5 runs or less over 6 innings. I wish I could say I think he can, but I don't think so. Too many hits, walks, wild pitches, hit batters, etc. Our "O" better score a bunch tonight...

I think Lohse's problems are all in his head. He cant shake anything off, he looks like he's gonna lose it out there when he walks a few or gives up a big hit.

A respectable start for Lohse today...and maybe Gardy is getting smart about him...pulled him after five, and didn't give him a chance to choke it away.

I was indeed surprised and glad to be wrong about my prediction for last night. It sure would be nice if we could count on him to pitch like that more often. Strib says they tried a new approach w/ him in bullpen sessions- forget the curve ball and go after hitters w/ a slider, change-up, or a fastball. It seemed to work for him, at least it did yesterday. Maybe it is a sign of better things to come. The mgm't. seems pretty motivated to keep trying different things w/ him, rather that stick him in the pen. Maybe he is and always will be a 5-inning pitcher and that's all we can hope for and expect. One outing does not change a pitcher, however. I will remain skeptical on this one for awhile yet..

I got a little nervous last night, but he bailed himself out of the fifth without letting in any runs. Would be nice to see him develop into a dependable guy.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
