The Midwest League (A-Ball) All-Star Game was pretty great! Granted, we had to sit through endless iterations of Zooperstars, Myron Noodleman, and Birdzerk performances to get to the actual baseball, but after four years of watching minor league baseball games on a semi-regular basis, I'm starting to get used to them. (BBoy McCoy was occasionally passable entertainment. Mostly when he got D'Marcus Ingram from the Quad Cities River Bandits to dance with him. This just in: Ingram is a capable dancer.)

I completely forgot that the Lake County Captains are in the MWL, so I was pleasantly surprised to see three players from Lake County on the East team: Bo Greenwell, Chun Chen, and Nick Savanides. I haven't heard much about any of these players, although Greenwell's name sounds familiar, so I hesitate to say anything about their performance on Tuesday night.

[ profile] caruso! I did keep my eye on Jacob Turner, but only when he was playing, since we got to the park fairly late and weren't around for the other festivities. He pitched the fourth inning, faced four batters, gave up no runs, and mostly got dudes out on grounders. His pitches seemed a lot faster than they really were, I think? I don't know. He was one of the pitchers I found intriguing to watch, but I am not a scout. :)

Other notables: Jerry Sands of the Great Lakes Loons was MVP of the game. He is a really big dude. Every time he came up to bat I leaned over to be like "HE IS SO BIG" to Secret Canadian. BUT HE IS. HE IS A BIG DUDE. Also, the Ft. Wayne Tin Caps' Nate Freiman is CRAZY TALL. There was also a guy from the Burlington Bees who pitched for the West whom I found kind of entrancing, but I missed his name and know NOTHING ELSE.

Anyway, good times!

Today, Secret Canadian and I shopped around for parts for the desktop we are building for me. Just pricing stuff, not actually buying things, though. I am PRETTY EXCITED.
