April 2013

UPDATED: Rating April since 2003

This post originally appeared on April 29, 2011 as a response to an insane number of rainouts.  I did not update it in 2012 because, there was just one postponement during all of April, 2012.

The only change I have made to this post is the removal of Perry, the Postponement Penguin. I’ve can’t afford to pay him residuals on this.

Now, after another postponement on April 19, I am compelled to update.  2012 and 2013 are at the bottom of the post.

===================================================

There have been so many tweets and emails and questions and ahhhh….let me do the math since I have nothing else to do tonight. I have been announcing for the Timber Rattlers since 2000. I have been full time with the team since 2003. Let’s use 2003 as a baseline since that was the gold standard for bad weather in April that I can remember.

I had a little time on my hand and came up with a rating system. Don’t be scared. This is what happens when you take baseball away from me.

April Postponements in Timber Rattlers History:

2003 April Postponements: Overall: 7; Home: 6
April 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8*, & 30
April 3-6 was a four game series at home against Beloit. April 7 and 8 was a series with Clinton. However, the Rattlers front office talked to the LumberKings and the Midwest League and that game on the eighth was actually moved to a league wide off day on April 10. I guess I can count it as a postponement. The April 30 game was the final game of a series at Clinton.

2003 rating:

2003 rating: Smiling Willard Scott. Look at him. He’s up to something. Just like this month. Watch out for this Willard Scott.

2004 April Postponements: Overall: 1; Home: 1
April 20
The first game of a series with the Burlington Bees at home was rained out. That was it.

2004 rating:

2004 rating: Valerie Voss. Wisconsin native, CNN meterologist, awesome. Not awesome…this is the best picture of her online.

2005 April Postponements: Overall: 0; Home: 0

The first rainout of the 2005 season was on July 25. The Rattlers played just two doubleheaders that season. One was a scheduled Day-Night DH on June 6 as a certain QB hosted his charity softball game on June 5. The other was a makeup of the July 25 rainout on July 27.
2005 rating:

April 2005 Rating: Jeaneatta Jones. This month was as beautiful as the best weather forecaster ever on The Weather Channel. Ever.

2006 April Postponements: Overall: 1; Home: 1
April 30

April 30 in a game against West Michigan. Seriously, it couldn’t hold off one more day?

2006 rating:

2006 rating: If there is anything that makes Willard Scott better it would be Al Roker. Al smooths out the harsh edges of Willard and make this month pretty cool.

2007 April Postponements: Overall: 5; Home 5
April 6, 7, 9, 11, & 12

The season opened on April 5 in 30 something weather. That would have been a postponement, too. Had it not also been the first game Ryne Sandberg managed. The games on the 6th and 7th against the Chiefs were colded out. April 8th was a scheduled off day. Clinton came in on April 9 and got rained out. The teams actually got a doubleheader in on April 10, but the next two games were called off due to snow…I’d say “Seriously?” but, it snowed on April 19 this year.

2007 rating:

2007 rating: I just blew any chance I had with Valerie Voss by posting this picture. But, April, 2007 deserved this rating…unlike Valerie who did not deserve this as the only other picture of her that I could find on the internet.

2008 April Postponements: Overall: 7; Home: 6
April 3, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, & 25

April 3 was opening night and it was in Quad Cities. The Rattlers home opener against Clinton was played on April 7. BUT, April 8-10 against Clinton was either rained or snowed out. Dayton came up to play on April 11, but the field still had ice and snow. April 12 also had too wet. The only reason the doubleheader against the Dragons was played on April 13 was because the Rattlers front office brought in a helicopter to dry out the field. Yes. Seriously. There’s a picture somewhere in the files. I’ll dig it up later. April 25 was a game against Beloit on a Friday night.

2008 rating:

2008 rating: Serious Willard Scott. Not even Willard Scott can smile about a month that needed a helicopter to play games.

2009 April Postponements: Overall: 3; Home: 1
April 19, 21, & 26
April 19 was a Sunday in Clinton. April 21 was a Tuesday at home against Peoria. April 26 was a Sunday afternoon at Quad Cities

2009 Rating: Young Willard Scott. That right there is what we in the business call ‘Network Hair’. You trust this man. You trust this month.

2010 April Postponements: Overall: 3; Home 2
April 8, 25, 30

April 8 was the famous snow out on Opening Night at Time Warner Cable Field. April 25 was a Sunday at home with the Beloit Snappers. April 30 was later in that same week at Beloit.

2010 rating:

2010 Rating: Nervous Willard Scott. Not enough home postponements to frighten Willard, but just enough to put him on high alert.

2011 April Postponements: Overall: 8; Home 6
April 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 22, 26, 28

And it ain’t over yet.

2011 rating:

2011 Rating: Willard Scott as Ronald McDonald. Nightmare Fuel. Best thing about this rating? Willard Scott went on to a long and successful career after this…this…well, I don’t know what this is, but yes…he (and Ronald) survived.

===================================================

NEW MATERIAL:

2012 April Postponements: Overall: 1; Home 1
April 16

Group Captain Sir James Martin Stagg, CB, OBE, FRSE. The man who made the call on D-Day for the Allies. The man made the call in a tough spot and he was right on the money.   What? You were expecting Jillian from the FOX NFL Pregame Show? This is a family blog.

April of 2013 needs to be blown off the pages of history...just like the overly smug and in way over his head Dr. Jonas Miller was in Twister.

2013 Rating: April of 2013 needs to be blown off the pages of history…just like the overly smug and ‘in-way-over-his-head’ Dr. Jonas Miller was in Twister.

 And it ain’t over yet.

Another one? Another one.

As soon as Friday’s game was called, I went looking for the nearest marquee that included a temperature.  Fortunately, I didn’t have to walk far:

  Not that it would have been any better back home.  Thanks, Kevin.

Sigh.

No game tonight…Obviously. Two on Saturday starting at 4pm. There will be a doubleheader when the Timber Rattlers host the LumberKings in May (May 8-10).

This is eight postponements in 2013. I am going to update the Rating April since 2003 post to include 2012 and 2013. It will be up tomorrow morning.

For now, enjoy pictures of Ashford University Field and the Timber Rattlers getting their work in for the day.

Yeesh. Can they just PLAY baseball!?!?

Although, the baseball coaches of Appleton West and Menasha High Schools had a heck of an idea.

Sadly, no such deal could be worked out in Clinton tonight.

Tip of the cap to JP Cadorin for a pointer to that PC Sports tweet.

Wet Grounds in Clinton

First, meet my new happy place:

It's my happy place because the water is where it belongs. In a lake, not falling from the DAMN SKY!

It’s my happy place because the water is where it belongs. In a lake, not falling from the DAMN SKY!

In case you had not heard, tonight’s game at Clinton was postponed due to wet grounds.

If you are interested to see where this April rates in relation to past Aprils of the Timber Rattlers, I urge you to go back to this post from 2011. It is titled Rating April since 2003. The rating system used mainly pictures of Willard Scott. Please note that the April of 2012 is not rated because it was a very benign month that barely made an impression on me. April of 2013 is approaching the April of 2011 and the horrific Willard as the original Ronald McDonald rating. Ugh.

Pictures from around the ballpark today.

Wet grounds. No kidding.

2013 Timber Rattlers Walkup Songs

No game on Wednesday.  Rained out…again…

In the more family friendly words of Frank Vitchard...This is getting to be Ri-GOSH DARN- diculous.

In the more family friendly words of Frank Vitchard…This is getting to be Ri-GOSH DARN- diculous.

In lieu of a game recap and game notes, here is one of the most popular features we have each season.  That would be the Walkup Songs of the players.  Not all of the players have turned in their songs to the production crew.  But, here is what they have so far.

Note, the Timber Rattlers production crew uses the edited songs for player walkup music.  I am going to follow that rule.  If I can’t find the clean version, I’m not going to post it or link to it.  Also, official music videos only.  If you want to hear the songs not linked, use google.

There are three songs on this list that I have heard before searching for the videos.  If you read this blog with any regularity, you’ll know which songs.

I’ll add to this list when possible during the season.

A few things after the doubleheader

“Janita, double stock my mini bar, please. 1019, Thank you.” – Dean Ziegler, Cedar Rapids.

End of the night.

End of the night.

Game one:
Timber Rattlers 0
Cedar Rapids 3
Boxscore | Game Story

Game two:
Timber Rattlers 1
Cedar Rapids 9
Boxscore | Game Story

GAME 1:
The Rattlers had seven hits in game one of the doubleheader.  BUT, five of those seven hits came with two outs in an inning.

Mitch Haniger had another double.  He has four doubles and a triple for five extra-base hits this season.

Tough loss in game one.  Cedar Rapids scored an unearned run in the third inning.  Then, they got two big insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth.  A possible comeback in the top of the seventh got very difficult.

GAME 2:
The 8-run bottom of the first was really tough.  Each of the first ten batters reached base.  The only out that was recorded was on a run scoring fielder’s choice.

Joe Garagiola wrote Baseball is a Funny Game.  That’s true.  BUT, baseball can be a really cruel game, too.  Jorge Lopez made a great pitch on Byron Buxton to start the first inning.  Jammed him good.  But, the ball rolled slowly to short and Ozzie “Freakin'” Smith couldn’t have thrown out Buxton.  The race was on from there.

Tip of the cap to Ryan Gibbard for coming on and working 5-2/3 innings in relief.  He allowed just an unearned run in the fifth inning.

There was a scoring change in the bottom of the fifth as an error was taken away from Jose Sermo.  This is how the play looks now in the play-by-play:

  • J. Arias reaches on a fielder’s choice, fielded by J. Sermo, A. Walker scores; N. Goodrum to 2nd. R. Jimenez grounds into double play, J. Sermo to M. Garza, N. Goodrum out at 3rd.

Originally, Sermo was charged with a throwing error on the play at second base.   The scorer believed that Sermo’s throw to second pulled Alfredo Rodriguez off the base as second.  However, the throw was right on the money.  Rodriguez showed some situational awareness because Sermo’s throw was not going to get the force on Niko Goodrum at second base.  Rodriguez came off the bag to try to get to the ball quicker to get Arias at first base for the out.  It didn’t work out, but still.  Heads up.

Speaking of heads up….Orlando Arcia saved Gibbard a couple of very frustrating  hits.  In the bottom of the second, Dalton Hicks sent a routine fly ball to medium center.  Tyrone Taylor could not see the ball off the bat and never found it.  Arcia ranged far from his shortstop position to make the catch.  The very next batter was Adam Brett Walker and he sent a routine fly ball to left-center field.  Michael Reed could not see the ball off the bat and never found it.  Arcia ranged far from his shortstop position to make the catch.  Arcia may be on 0-for-11 in this series, but he is keeping his head in the defensive part of the game.

The Shift continues.  Here is how Wisconsin’s infielders were playing Dalton Hicks tonight:

Shift is on!

Shift is on!

It worked in the fourth inning of game two. Hicks hit a grounder up the middle just a bit to the right of where Arcia is playing in that photo. Arcia made a backhand stop of the ball, raced to second for the force, and threw to first for a nifty double play.

Single game on Wednesday…we hope.  Some of the local weather forecasters are not leaving themselves any wiggle room as they are calling for a 100% chance of rain.  Here’s hoping that certainty is misplaced.

Before we get into that…you’ve GOT to see the scoreboard they have in Cedar Rapids…WOW!

They should film the highlights in IMAX!

They should film the highlights in IMAX!

The team watched Goon on the way down.  It is an awesome movie.  It gets better each time I watch it.  I’ve watched it a lot in the last two seasons.  We must have watched it seven or eight times last season.   I don’t think the Rattlers have lost a game after they have watched that movie.

Goon beats the heck out of the two good luck movies from the 2001 season: Cliffhanger and Meet the Parents.  No, seriously, we must have watched those movies 15 times that season.

This one is for the velocity mavens: Damien Magnifico hit 99 on the radar tonight.  What does that mean?  Jeff Johnson from the Cedar Rapids Gazette, can you help?

For those interested in everything else about pitching: Magnifico allowed one run on two hits with no walks and five strikeouts over five innings. He mixed speeds and had good control.  I’d say exceptional control, but he did hit a batter in this game.  Two nice outings in a row for Magnifico.

Leonard Lorenzo struck out five in three innings. He did not allow a run either.  Eight shutout innings with ten strikeouts and one walk by Lorenzo this season.

Tough error on Orlando Arcia in the third inning. Candido Pimentel went to steal second. Parker Berberet’s throw was right on the base and into Arcia’s glove. But, Pimentel appeared to clip Arcia on the glove hand with his spikes. The slide sent the ball toward left and dislodged Arcia’s glove from his hand. Ouch! Arcia stayed in the game, but went without a hit for the first time this season.

In the style of Clarence Boddicker from RoboCop: Ooo! Offense!  Offense!  Offense!

Mike Garza, Jose Sermo, and Tyrone Taylor all hit the ball out of the ballpark on Monday.  Wisconsin had two home runs – both by Clint Coulter – in the first seven games of the season.

The right fielder for the Kernels made the official scorer’s job a little more difficult in the top of the ninth.  Chris McFarland hit a ball to the track, but it appeared that Adam Brent Walker had a bead on the ball, but he jumped for it…and the ball thudded off the heel of his glove.  I can see why the play was ruled an E9, but…Geeze…it would have been McFarland’s fourth hit and second triple of the game.

For a moment, I thought McFarland had hit the ball hard enough for it to carry out of the ballpark.  If it had, McFarland would have had the first cycle in Timber Rattlers history.

McFarland, Sermo, and Taylor all had three hits.  Taylor and Michael Reed each had four RBI.

The tarp was on the field when the team got to the the ballpark today.  The tarp has been on the field every day the team has arrived at the ballpark since…last Monday?  I don’t know.  Last week seems so long ago.  I can’t remember if the team hit on the field that day.  I think they did.

Let’s say that they did.  Just for argument’s sake.  Since the Timber Rattlers arrived at the ballpark for practice on April 2, they have taken batting practice outside on these dates: 4/4, 4/5, & 4/6 in Peoria and 4/8 at home.  Four times in two weeks.  That is not a good ratio.

Doubleheader tomorrow. We hope.  It’s still going to be crummy, cold, and clammy.

Yogi Berra would argue – and is probably still arguing – that Robinson is out on that play. You be the judge:

I am working on this post at a little before 4pm.  The tarp is on the field in Cedar Rapids, but I am told that the rain will let up in about an hour or so and there will be a game tonight.

Apparently not.
