Scooter Day

The Arizona Fall League wrapped up its regular season today.

The Peoria Javelinas ended their season with a 2-2 tie against the Phoenix Desert Dogs.

Scooter Gennett (’10) went 1-for-3 with a pair of RBI for Peoria to finish the season at .411/.470/.556 with a pair of homers and 14 RBI.  I’ll touch on how other ex-Rattlers performed in the down in Arizona with a post tomorrow, but today is mostly about Scooter.

Mainly because this post from the Brewers website has about two minutes of a video interview with Scooter.

Then, there is the extended video of the interview on Jonathan Mayo’s blog.  But first, Mayo’s lead-in:

I’ll admit, I tend to like scrappy players who go all out. Guys named Scooter are automatically going to become guys I root for unless something happens to make me feel otherwise.

Then I met Scooter Gennett and the conversation merely confirmed my earlier thought. It’s hard not to like the guy.

Last note today: Adam McCalvy notes (on his twitter account) that Baseball America has released their list of the Top 10 Brewers Prospects for 2012.  Former Timber Rattlers in bold.
