Post doubleheader thoughts (April 29, 2011)

Before we get started, the tarp went on the field after game two.

Please let it come off before the game tomorrow.  Please.

Game one was a Chili’s ‘Rattlers Win, You Win’ victory.  On the way out of the stadium, you should have received a coupon good for Free Chips and Queso at the Appleton Chili’s located at 1170 N. Casaloma Drive near Fox River Mall.

To the musings of a madman’s mind

  • A lot has been made about the speed of the Timber Rattlers outfielders.  But how about those arms.  Reggie Keen with an outfield assist in both games.  Franklin Romero with on in game two.
  • Granted, the base running of the LumberKings was not good…but, still….WOW.
  • I feel bad for Cameron Garfield. In game two, he gets back behind home plate for the first time since getting off the disabled list and…I’ll let Mike Woods (@Floridagators59) take it away with the following tweets
  • Catcher Cameron Garfield, 2nd-round pick of Brewers in 09, looks to have suffered knee injury Had to be helped off field after play at plate
  • There was no collision, looks to have caught a cleat. Scream was pretty loud. Tough break for Garfield. Good thing, he’s just 19
  • Well, I’m not sure if any time is a good time to get a knee injury for a catcher, but if I hear anything else I’ll try to let you know.
  • Speaking of health updates here is Jason Rogers (@jasonrogers3000): chilling in arizona, getting ready for my surgery next wednesday, rehabbing for 6-8 wks, then back to wisconsin!!!
  • Get well soon, Jason.  Hurry back. The weather will be much better when you get back here. I guarantee it.
  • Our usually on top of it music crew missed it with Forrest Snow on the mound for Clinton in Game two of the doubleheader.
  • How do they miss a chance for Informer
    You know say daddy me snow me-a (gonna) blame
    A licky boom-boom down
    ‘Tective man he say, say Daddy Me Snow me stab someone down the lane
    A licky boom-boom down
  • I mean really.
  • Cody Hawn on the home run board with a line drive homer to left.  Opposite field homers are a good sign…Or so I’ve heard.
  • Helllllloooooo, Matt Miller!  I can’t wait to see how he pitches when he gets in a groove of pitching every five days instead of having to wait 10 days and then wait another six.
  • Seriously.  I had Austin Ross at 106 pitches (69 strikes) in his 7 inning complete game on Wednesday.  Miller was at 84 pitches (61 strikes) for his complete game on Friday.
  • Miller struck out six and walked one.  This is the Matt Miller that went 9-2 in the Pioneer League (playoffs included) last season.
  • Friday’s attendance: 4,062.  The front office really needed that
