Futures Game: Team USA

 I was pretty disappointed that there were no Futures Game specific souvenirs I could buy when we went to the Futures game last weekend.  Everything was branded with the All Star game logo.  I didn’t go to the All Star Game.  I went to the Futures Game.  However, they handed out some handy  programs, and that was as good as anything since there were short write ups of all the players inside. 

I thought I would spare you my thoughts on the players and just scan the pages for you.

Wil Myers received a huge ovation from the crowd.  I’m not sure what the delay is on calling him up from AAA.  I was listening to sports radio on the way home, and some guy from the Sporting News said Myers could be in the same category as Trout and Harper.    I hope so, and from what I’ve seen in person while he was in NW Arkansas, it wouldn’t surprise me.

So bummed Tyler Austin didn't play. He was hit in the head a few days before.
