Lohse wins arbitration ... not bad for a scrub

Lohse tops Twins in arbitration, to earn $3.95 million

Pioneer PressPitcher

Kyle Lohse won his salary arbitration case against the Twins for the second consecutive year.

The right-hander will make $3.95 million in 2006 rather than the $3.4 milion the Twins offered.

Lohse was 9-13 in 2005, the same record he had a year earlier. His ERA dropped to 4.18 from 5.34 but he made 30 starts, four fewer than in 2004. He made $2.4 million last year rather than the club's $2.15 million offer.

The case was heard Monday by arbitrators Dan Brent, Stephen Goldberg and Steven Wolf.

He is good for batting practice!!!!!!!!!!!

Lohse has good stuff but his 2 biggest problems are that he can't stay away from the BIG inning and he is to emotional on the mound. When a teammate makes a error or he doesn't get the call from the ump he goes into Meltdown mode!!!

With Liriano and Baker waiting in the wings, why didn't they just let him go. I hope they move him to the bullpen this year.

Next to Mays I'd rather have Lohse. Mays had 1 good season. Lohse had 2 good and 2 bad. I'd stick with Lohse. Need 5 starters anyway.

I think Lohse just secured a midseason trade. He is getting too rich for the Twins blood as a below average starting pitcher.

Who trades for him, Yanks, Bosox, Cards ??

I would rather have Lohse than Mays. If Lohse can pitch this year like he pitched during the last half of the season. We'll be in good shape. That will give us a very good starting 4 with Santana, Radke, Silva, Lohse then Baker and Liriano fighting for that 5th spot.

We don't have to worry about the pitching staff. We need these guys to be swing the bats consistently!

The book has been the same on lohse for the last few years. the only thing is he is full of "ifs", if he can stay away from the big inning, if he can keep controll, if he can have a breakout year this year, if he can pitch like he did for part of last year. The guy was supposed to have a breakout year two years ago. Yes he does have good stuff but it seems he can't apply it for six or sevens innings on a regular basis. I don't know but another 9-13 season doesn't cut it for me.

As a teacher that makes less in one year than he will make per inning, all I have to say is that 9 wins in 30 starts, means if I do a good job at teaching Math and Reading once every 3 days, and let the kids go crazy the other days, I should be able to ask my school board for a 75% raise! How about that, I have been working too hard all these years!

he did have a 4.18 ERA last year. can't remember who, but someone just signed with another team for 8.95 mil, and he had a ERA over 5 last year.

lohse had very bad run support last year, so his 9-13 record should have been better. lohse is still young, and has the potential to do good. if he had last years ERA for a top offensive team last year, he probally would have won close to 20 games.

lets hope he can do a 4.18 or better this year.

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      67 degrees today in big bay. No fish today for me.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      I am with you. Can’t seem to find any walleye

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
