Your article makes me wish that these guys had been up when I took a trip to Beloit with my dad last year. It would have been fun to watch, not that the game we watched wasn't fun.

Technically, it's not a Prince Fielder "bobblehead" day but a bobble-arm day - the head is stationary, but the arms are on springs.:)

Well did you get a snappy burger or not? Also how was the attendance and quality of the ballpark, is it midway-like?

Assessment of Eddie Rosario's defense and chances to be a MI at the MLB level? And, does he have a reasonable shot to get on the fast-track to an expected arrival sometime in 2014?

The one game I saw him play defense, he had two major errors - basic routine plays (an easy ground ball hit right at him that he just failed to pick up, and missing a short toss from the shortstop at the start of a double play).

Got checked in to the hotel about an hour ago. I had dark clouds chasing me here all the way from Cedar Rapids. I've got a hunch it's going to be a wet time at the ballpark.

TOnight I got the Snappy Burger and it was excellent.

Attendance was stated to be 1100, 1200 and about 2200 tonight.

Eddie Rosario will continue to develop into a good 2B. His hit tool is advanced for that level. He reminded me a lot of DSpan with the bat, letting it get deep into the zone and slapping it down the 3rd base line or past the 3B.
