Notes on 2011 Timber Rattlers hitters

Part 4 of a season stat recap.  The multi-hit and multi-RBI games and hitting streaks involve only those players who were on the roster (Active or DL) at the end of the year.  The starts by batting order and starts by position are for everyone who played for the Rattlers during the 2011 season.

It goes without saying that all errors are all on me.

Plays of the Year

I meant to do this earlier today, but I slept in for a little longer than usual.  Then, we had a front office review meeting for most of the day.

The boys in the production booth put together the top ten offensive and the top ten defensive plays of the year.  Or, as I like to call it, “A bunch of plays where I sound like a raving lunatic.”*

Top ten Defensive Plays of the Year:

Top ten Offensive Plays of the Year:

Oh, you probably should have turned the speakers on your computers down a bit.

*-The production crew has another name for “Plays were Mehring sounds like a lunatic.”  That name is Tuesday.

Second half intro music

There have been a few requests about player music in the second half.

Since Monday’s game was rained out and there will be no Postgame Thoughts tonight how about a list of the current walk up music for the hitters.

This is what I have:

Reggie Keen – Racks on Racks by Young Chris
Nick Shaw – Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice
Jason Rogers – Simon Says by Pharoahe Monch
Greg Hopkins – Work by Gang Starr
TJ Mittelstaedt – California Love by 2Pac
Chad Stang – Am I The Only One by Dierks Bentley
Mike Brownstein – Alright by Darius Rucker
Tony Pechek – Small Town Kid by Eli Young Band
Franklin Romero – Miami Boy by Pitbull
Cody Hawn – Honey Bee by Blake Shelton
Joey Paciorek – Young Cardinals by Alexisonfire
Mike Walker – Paper Planes by MIA
Nick Ramirez – If I Die Today by Lil Wayne

The most frequent request has been, “What is the song that plays when Jason Rogers comes to the plate?”…I am paraphrasing.

So:

Enjoy the unexpected night off everyone.  Let’s play TWO on Tuesday!

All the young arms

Tom Haudricourt has this blog post up about the young arms (h/t to the artist formerly known as @battlekow) in the Milwaukee Brewers system.  Particular attention is being paid to the Timber Rattlers.

[O]ff to the best start is right-hander Austin Ross, an eighth-rounder out of LSU. Ross, 22, was the Brewers’ minor-league pitcher of the month for April and has continued to excel in May.

Through seven games (six starts), Ross is 4-1 with a 1.85 earned run average. In 43 2/3 innings, he has allowed only 28 hits and 12 walks while logging 45 strikeouts.

Brewers minor-league pitching coordinator Lee Tunnell has been impressed with Ross, on and off the field.

“From the first time you meet him, he’s very professional,” said Tunnell. “He presents himself well, takes his job seriously and has a vision to be a major-league pitcher. He’s intelligent and focused.

“So, if you ask if we are surprised by his success, no we are not surprised at all.”

Right-hander Jimmy Nelson, a second-rounder out of Alabama, and righty Matt Miller, a fifth-rounder out of Michigan, also are pitching in the Timber Rattlers’ rotation. But perhaps the most interesting pitcher there is right-hander Tyler Thornburg, taken in the third round out of Charleston Southern.

Because he is smallish – 5-foot-10, 185 pounds – and has an unusual delivery, Thornburg drew comparisons to Tim Lincecum before the draft. And he does have a live arm, throwing his fastball in the mid-90s with regularity.

The Miller’s tales

Superlatives all around for Matt Miller after last night’s complete game shutout.

Here’s The Post-Crescent story:

A lot of things helped Miller. He faced just one batter over the minimum due to a double play, an outfield assist and a base runner caught stealing. The latter came with the help of catcher Tyler Roberts, a.k.a. Miller’s best friend.

“If you get in a rhythm out there, and that’s key for a pitcher to just get in a rhythm, in the sixth we were just clicking,” Miller said. “Then when we got to the seventh and we just carried the same momentum we had in the sixth. I thought we were more locked in there than early on in the game. That kind of happens. You find your chemistry and your moments as the game goes on. And Tyler did a great job tonight just being there with me.”

….

“It’s different at every level,” Miller said. “Obviously, you come here with high expectations. If you looked at our starting pitching staff, just a slew of great arms and great college careers. And last year we all played together and had some success.

“We’ve tried to bring that here and everybody is trying to feel it out. Obviously, in the beginning of the season, everyone is going through bumps. But we’re just going to put our head down and keep working. Collectively, everybody played a great game today.”

And MiLB.com also caught up with Miller after his gem:

“You have to get ahead of guys and pound the zone,” he said. “That’s what I learned tonight. You have to remember that you are in charge out there. Taking the pressure off yourself and putting it on the hitters is the key.”

….

“We had a lot of success throwing the fastball tonight,” the University of Michigan product said. “They were a predominantly left-handed lineup, so we were going hard away and then changing the pace.

“Once we got ahead, we could use the changeup in any count and that helped us get a lot of ground balls.”

Carlos George Interview & Mike Walker Highlight

The Production Crew has taken up residence in the Time Warner Cable Field.

First, here is the Carlos George interview from the the April 12 pregame show:

Now, here is Walker’s eighth inning at bat that ends with the Rattlers taking the lead against the Kernels:

Next task for the production guys is to get me the Honus Wagner baseball card and invent a perpetual motion machine.  I’ll give them a week.
