I cannot believe how great Ortiz is pitching! Do you think he will stay like this all year...any thoughts?

I hope he does, he has looked good so far and that last night was against a very good line-up. We need a solid 2nd starter in our rotation. He is our Little Papi...

Thankfully, the bats came alive in the 8th to seal the win for RO. What a great performance. Love that emotion he shows!

It's amazing how hard he throws for how small he is. We need somebody to step up to that #2 behind Johan. Hopefully Ramon wil be that guy.

I hope so. We need a starting pitcher upside surprise or this is going to be a tough year.

Hopefully he will. It would be nice to get 10-12 wins from him this year. That would be a good compliment to santana.

Thing I like best about Ortiz is that he lets the ball fly without standing on the mound doing a lot of thinking.

He's pitching good against the Mariners tonight as well. He goes after the batters. So far so good. by the way.. Torii Hunter just hit a grand slam! Twins up 7-1 bottom of 5.

Extra base hits by the cartload, Ramon (3-0) Ortiz's sinking 2-seamer inducing ground outs and nifty DPs, getting reminded by my wife how down I was on Torii last June and how she has always kept the faith, and a very crooked number. (I'd say '11' qualifies.) Nicely entertaining night. And I debated staying up to watch.

Great game. Ortiz may not be a true #2 guy, but he is sure filling the role for now. Only about one starting pitcher away from having a competitive rotation at the moment. Not a "2006 good" staff, but perhaps sufficient to stay in the hunt.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
