Rattler Radio Podcast – September 19, 2016

Welcome to the offseason.  The 2016 season came to an end in Cedar Rapids and I took a little time away from the blog.  Regular posting will start again soon with some fun new features along with a few old ones that will be returning.

One of the returning features will be the Podcast and the first guest is Wisconsin Timber Rattlers manager Matt Erickson.

Matt and I sat down for over an hour last Friday to recap the season, talk about a lot of the players that played for Wisconsin this season, his plans for the offseason, the upcoming instructional leagues, and his future.

Boxscore | Game Story | Gameday

In the second half Western Division Wild Card chase, the Burlington Bees lost 5-4 to the Clinton LumberKings. The Bees are now 33-33 in the second half and the Rattlers have a two game lead on the Bees for the Wild Card spot with four games remaining in the season. Wisconsin owns the tie-breaker of the Bees by virtue of winning the season series between the teams. Wisconsin’s magic number over the Bees to clinch a playoff spot is two.
