All is right in the world!

LaVelle E. Neal posted this afternoon that the Twins have sent Aaron Hicks to Beloit. It should be very interesting to see how he adjusts to the Midwest League. It would be fun to see he and Angel Morales roaming the same outfield! Travis from Travis Talks will be in Beloit this weekend to witness the festivities! Call me officially jealous!

    A single tear dropped down my face when I read this.

    That would help Beloit. The Snappers have been very disappointing this season. The only batter who has a good year is Ramon Santana and pitchers whose last name does not start with a “T” (all but Tarsi, Testa, Tippett) have been underperforming. This is the beginning of the good part of the minor league seasons where promotions happens and people are weeded out

    Beloit sure looks bad on paper (er, online). Are they that bad?

    Mike,

    Unfortunatly when I have seen them the answer is yes. They have had some good performances here and there, but they just don’t seem to be that good. It doesn’t look like a Twins team also, not as tight and a bit sloppy. I have been particularly disappointed in the pitching, but the disaster that was Hank Sanchez didn’t help and I have not yet been impressed with Morales. But maybe he needs to adapt to all us Swedes, Germans, Norsk and Poles here in Wiscosnin.

    Hopefully Hicks will add some spark to a pretty lifeless offense. Might make going to Pohlmann field fun again like last year when Revere came up.

    Maybe this is what the Snappers need to get going. Don’t they have a lot of the players that won the championship in E-Town last season? I’m surprised they have such a poor record. Any ideas why?

    Pitching.

    See Shooter Hunt and tonights starter Dan Osterbrock as examples 1 and 1A. Though Osterbrock has shown some signs of pulling out of his problems lately, with three pretty good outings in a row. In the bottom 3rd of just about every catagory.

    Not to excuse the offense, but this is a pitchers league I think.

    I am optimistic about the second half with Hicks and some signs of life among the pitchers. If Morales finds his groove, Santana keeps it going and Waltenbury hits a few long balls. In baseball you never know.

    Just read the blog from the other night. Very interesting and enjoyable. Also, the handbook sure comes in handy when guys that I am not familiar with, such as Michael Allen, come into the conversation. Another Good Job Seth. Thanks.
