I like the Nelvin Fuentes line. That was pretty good.

Brad, great writing as usual! Also, would Rosin be the first Mound View alum to play in the majors if he makes it?

Thanks for all the kind words everyone, I really appreciate them.

Rosin would be the second Mustang to reach the Majors. Mark Hamburger, MVHS class of 2005, signed with the Twins as a Minor League free agent in 2007. The Twins later traded him to Texas for Eddie Guardado. On a side note, I had completely forgotten about Guardado's 2008 stint with the Twins.

Back to Hamburger, he eventually reached the Majors in 2011, pitching 8 innings with the Rangers. He bounced around a bit after that, then was suspended 50 games in February for recreational drugs (shocking for a Mounds View kid) and he will have to serve those games if he signs with a team. As of now, he has not.

So, Rosin would be second and hopefully he can have a more prolific career.
