Twins add Ortiz

Recommended Posts

Nice signing. 3.1M for a 1 year deal. 2 veteran pitcher signings (including Ponson) in the off season. Terry must be ready to make a real run at it this year.

Hey, BPW: Remember the fiasco of an ALCS game that you and Ray and I went to back in '02? 400 mile round trip to the HumptyDome on a school night. Remember the Angel pitcher going 5 innings for the win? Our new-found friend Ramon Ortiz. Seemed like the only highlight that night was Johan coming in relief after Reed gives up his second HR of the night. Maybe Ortiz can do it again, but I'm not sure if it's enough arms even yet to look for many Twinkie ALCS wins in '07. But, maybe......

Twins strike a deal with Ramon Ortiz

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Twins have agreed with right- hander Ramon Ortiz on a one-year deal. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports the deal is worth $3.1 million and is contingent upon him passing a physical.

Ortiz went 11-16 with a 5.57 earned run average in 33 starts for Washington last season. In his eight-year career, Ortiz is 79-76 with a 4.85 ERA in 220 games, including 200 starts.

The 33-year-old Ortiz has started at least 30 games in five of the last six seasons, with his best season coming in 2002 when he helped the Los Angeles Angels win their first World Series by going 15-9, including a 6-0 record in his final nine starts, with a 3.77 ERA.

Ortiz could fill the void in the Minnesota rotation created when Brad Radke retired after last season. He would join a starting staff that already consists of reigning Cy Young Award winner Johan Santana, Carlos Silva, Boof Bonser and possibly Sidney Ponson. Ponson agreed on a minor league deal with the team earlier this month and will have to make the team out of spring training for his contract to be guaranteed.

Schweady--

I do rememeber that trip--"Good Times!" The only problem is, I know that if the Twins are in the play-offs and we go again, the only pitcher that I will get to see is BOOF!!! I hope that this is a good signing--if nothing else he should eat up innings until the young guys are ready!

GO TWINS! grin.gif

Ramon is from the Bert B. school of home-runs-are-OK pitching. But chances are that he can get to middle relief.

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
