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.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
