Brock Kjeldgaard is an awesome name. Sadly, he hit a 2-run home run off Shafer.

Vitters is now 0/2 with a BB and a K. Second straight day with a walk.

Thought it would be fun to head to Jackson to see the Jaxx host the Smokies. Got great seats for the game behind home plate. These proved useful in that we got a great look at Sandberg as he was getting ejected. Ugh.

Not sure what Ryne said to set the umpire off. The SP was getting shelled and he went out for a meeting on the mound. Considering that nobody was even stretching in the bullpen it wasn't that he was stalling before bringing in a reliever. On the way to the bullpen he exchanged some words with teh umpire and that was that. FWIW a lot of bickering between the umpire and visiting dugout. The home plate umpire must've had a hot date after the game. Not often you see an umpire get to the mound within 5-10 seconds of the catcher getting there to talk to the pitcher telling the duo to hurry it up.

OF Greg Halman (Mariners' top prospect according to BA, #2 prospect according to Sickels)
C Adam Moore (#6 Mariners prospect according to BA, #7 according to Sickels)
RP Josh Fields (first rounder last season)

Recap:

The field was in terrible condition. Down here our lawns are bermuda grass. The grass goes dormant in the winter. It's just now coming back to life. Last night it looked like they were playing on brown billiard felt.

Jay Jackson's fastball was very hittable and he didn't have good command of his breaking pitches, he was in trouble all night, however, the umpire behind home plate had a postage stamp strike zone (for both teams). The umpiring was pretty terrible. West Tenn had a guy thrown out at second on a steal attempt who was clearly safe, it wasn't even close.

I think Sandberg got tossed for arguing balls and strikes on his way back to the dugout after a mound conference. The umpire actually followed him back to the dugout. I think he wanted to toss Sandberg. As soon as Sandberg got tossed I started laughing really hard. My wife asked what was so funny and I said to her, "It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice". She didn't get it.

Greg Halman is a man amongst boys. He's a physical beast. He looks like a young Frank Thomas. At Pringles park dead center field is 395 with a 30 foot hight fence. He hit a ball right over the 395 sign with about 10 feet to spare. That ball easily went 420 feet and that was his second HR of the night.

No one on the Smokies stood out in any way.

They have Fat Tire on tap! That alone was worth the trip.

The stolen base was one of many awkward moments last night by the umpiring crew. The guy was 1/3 of the way before the pitcher threw to home and he was laying on the base when the ball finally arrived. Apparently the umpire felt that he took something off the base while the fielder held the tag on him. I guess he didn't grant time. Don't forget the other play at second where the Smokies got a terrible call. The SS had to range, fell down and flipped to the 2B. The runner was clearly there before the ball yet he was called out.

FWIW I also didn't understand a "foul tip" the umpire called as well. Clearly appeared to be a swing and miss with no sound at all. Rather than a 3rd strike it leads to another pitch and a single. The guys in blue made the game a lot more difficult that it needed to be.

Disappointing to see what the Jaxx organization has become. Hard to imagine how few people would've been there had Sandberg not been at the game.
