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.
