Lugnuts Notes: Home and Away Series Against the West Michigan Whitecaps

April 13 thru 16

  • Lugnuts 3 games, Whitecaps 1
  • Lugnuts are 7-5 (.583)
  • First place, 1/2 game ahead of the Wizards

Mark Quinn and Carlos Beltran collided on the first play of the game last night, and the Journal believes they will be out for a few days. A strange series; the first game was well-played, the second was silly, the third was awful (9 errors), and the last started with an injury. Welcome to the low minors, Lansing.

Our team is leading the league, as a team, in nearly every hitting category. Can’t say the same for the pitching. Treanor and Hallmark are at or near the top of the individual categories; Pat’s tied with four others for the stolen base lead. (Not bad for a catcher.)

I’m starting to recognize the team without resorting to the scorecard; now things get interesting. Coffee’s swing’s prettier than his statistics. Treanor throws really hard. Key’s fun to watch; I like watching sidewinders.

The weather’s still bad, though not as bad as last week. My crocuses have blossomed; I expect daffodils any day. It’s still too early to tell about the team. Stay tuned.
