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.

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
