Ramon Ortiz to Min

Postby Havok1517 » Fri Jan 19, 2007 5:13 pm

The Twins are set to sign Ramon Ortiz to a one-year, $3.1 million contract, assuming that he passes a physical.

We're sure like to know who they wre bidding against. Despite being a flyball environment in a friendly environment, Ortiz was terrible after taking a $2.5 million contract from the Nationals last season, going 11-16 with a 5.57 ERA. Also, he was almost as bad with the Reds in 2005, finishing with a 5.36 ERA. We don't see how he's a better bet for 2007 than either Matt Garza or Scott Baker.

Ouch. Ortiz isn't very good...
The opposing lineups in the AL Central just started salivating over the thought of batting practice against Ramon Ortiz.

Yuck. I know the Twins need some veteran presence, but I'm much more comfortable with Glen Perkins.
