I was at the Saturday game and I caught the game in West Michigan today too. I it was a cold, but fun games to watch. Eddie Rosario's bat is starting to heat up again. I was bummed I didn't get to see you play, your teams has so many middle infielders it must be hard to give everyone playing time.

Tommy Watkins had such an interesting career... he's one of the best reasons that fans should follow minor league baseball. Late-round draft pick, spent pretty much two years at every levels. Fans and teammates absolutely love him. Gets to AAA and thanks to some injuries, he got that cup of coffee... and forever, he can be called "Big Leaguer." He also hit like .357 in his 9 or so games, and would have kept starting at 3B likely if not for his own injury. Great stories!
