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.

1. Wily Peralta
2. Taylor Jungmann
3. Jed Bradley
4. Tyler Thornburg
5. Scooter Gennett
6. Logan Schafer
7. Cody Scarpetta
8. Taylor Green
9. Jorge Lopez

Arizona Fall League Report (Games of November 2)

Peoria 4, Salt River 2

Peoria:
Scooter Gennett (’10): 3-for-4, RUN, RBI
Kentrail Davis (’10): 1-for-4
Adam Moore (’06): 1-for-3, RUN

The game story from MLB has this little bit on Scooter’s day:

Javelinas leadoff man Scooter Gennett, the Brewers’ No. 4 prospect, and No. 9 hitter Ryan Jackson (Cardinals) each went 3-for-4. It was the second straight three-hit game for Gennett, who raised his average to .383, while Jackson struck out on four pitches in the eighth inning to fall a homer shy of the cycle.

A good day in the Arizona Fall League

MLB.com has a story on yesterday’s win by Peoria over Mesa.

After the Solar Sox scored twice in the bottom of the second, the Javelinas picked up the pace in the fourth and fifth opposing reliever Bruce Pugh (Twins), who was tagged with his first loss. Kentrail Davis (Brewers) tripled home Zelous Wheeler (Brewers) and Juan Lagares (Mets) plated Scooter Gennett (Brewers) with a two-run homer.

Gennett and Davis, Milwaukee’s No. 4 and 6 prospects respectively, went a combined 5-for-8 at the plate. Gennett is batting .421 through four AFL games.

For Wednesday’s game, Gennett went 3-for-5 with a double and a run and Davis was 2-for-3 with a triple, a run, and an RBI.

There was a file photo of Scooter Gennett that went with the story.

If you are looking for an update on the World Cup down in Panama, don’t. The entire Wednesday schedule was rained out.  It looks like there are doubleheaders scheduled for today and tomorrow.  All of the games are scheduled for seven innings.

A bobblehead to remember

This is happening!

The Wisconsin Timber Rattlers have taken the lemon from a snowed out Opening Day in 2010 and turned it into a one-of-a-kind collectable for Opening Day, 2011. The Rattlers and Time Warner Cable will give away a bobblehead to all fans attending their game against the Kane County Cougars on Thursday, April 7. The bobblehead is titled Scooter vs. The Snowman.

The bobblehead is based on a picture of Scooter Gennett, a top prospect in the Milwaukee Brewers minor league system and a 2010 Midwest League All-Star, taking a swing at a snowman built by the players just after the first game of last season was called off due to snow on April 8, 2010.

Right now, you can guarantee the bobblehead (AND get a free Opening Night ticket) for yourself by ordering a 10-game ticket package.

Ben Hill of Ben’s Biz Blog did. He named it one of his ten favorite photos of 2010.

It is one of my favorites, too.
