Postgame thoughts (May 6, 2011)

The sea's in my veins, the tradition remains; I'm just glad I don't live in a trailer.

Final score from Friday:

Rattlers 4 @Snappers 3
Boxscore | Game Story

  • Yes. That is the broadcast booth at Pohlman Field
  • I don’t mind it so much because one of my favorite shows when I was a young aspiring broadcaster was The Rockford Files.
  • I think I’ve figured out the Greg Holle savings plan: Get out of a jam in the eighth inning and count on a spectacular defensive play in the bottom of the ninth to close out the game.  Must be a Horned Frog thing.
  • Congratulations to Tom Keeling! Picked up his first professional win yesterday.
  • I seem to recall a comment about the Rattlers being too aggressive on the basepaths before they went on the road.
  • I only bring it up because Romero scored the tying run from second on a bunt single by George and Walker scored the go ahead run on a contact play with a slow chopper to second.
  • 4-2 road trip!  Whoooooo!  Winning road trip!
  • Jimmy Nelson had a couple of comments on twitter after the game that makes you want to pull for him: Had no command today but the team did a good job picking me up and getting the W. & Kudos to Holle, keeling, Reggie, and hopkins.
  • Honesty in analyzing your own game is a positive.  Just like throwing strikes and getting groundballs.
  • Yes. Hopkins.  He put on one heck of a Brooks Robinson display. There was a first inning error on a tough hop, but…WOW! he made some plays.
  • I hope they don’t BUT…will MWL teams ever learn to NOT run on the Rattlers outfielders?  11 outfield assists.  WOW!
  • Still working on the highlights from that last game in Beloit.  Hope to have them cut up soon.
  • Rattlers are home for six games starting today.  Five night games and a day game.  You know who is most excited about that?  The coaching staff.  Expect a lot of early work starting on Monday.
