Minor League Invite Orgy

February 12th, 2010

How many times have you read this statement during the offseason? "(Team) signed ______ to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training." 100? 200? All your favorite ex-Brewers like Frank Catalanotto and Seth McClung got these types of deals and the Brewers partook in the practice quite a bit as well. By my account there is at least 13 players headed to spring training for the Brewers, but there may be more. Some might make the team, some might disappear and some might head on down to Nashville. We're still a couple of months from those decisions being made and right now there is just a gaggle of veterans working out in hopes of making the team. Their probably all just home working out in preparation for the season right now, but what if they weren't? What if they were all just chatting on the internet?

Okay, the Brewers asked me to lead this orientation chat.
Why?
Because in 2007 I started the season 5-0 for the Brewers.
Wow that's really good. Then what happened?
He lost the next 22 games he started.
Wow, that's really bad.
Guys, guys, nevermind that. Can we please just get through this? Ken Macha thinks we'll all have an easier time assimilating to the team if we get to know each other so can everyone please state your name and the last team you played for. I'll start. Chris Capuano, Brewers.
Joe Inglett, Blue Jays.
Norris Hopper, Washington Nationals.
Shouldn't we say teams we actually played for?
Oh, right.

Norris Hopper, Reds... in 2008.

lol
Trent Oeltjen, Diamondbacks.
Scott Schoeneweis, Diamondbacks.
Was it two for one at the former D-bags with hard to spell last name store or what?
luis cruz, pirates ;))
Matt Treanor, Tigers.

JOE INGLETT HAS LEFT THE CHAT ROOM.

im sorry i didnt mean to offend my new teammate. i have been alone for many nights since my true love left me with only the internet to console my broken heart
Can't imagine why. Where'd they find this guy, To Catch a Predator? haha
JOHN HALAMA WASHINGTON SENATORS
Okay, I think that's everyone.
Edmonds didn't say his name and team!
Calm down tattletale, everyone here already knows who I am. What's that? You want to hear it anyways?

Jim Edmonds, STARTING Center Fielder of YOUR 2006 WORLD SERIES CHAMPION St. Louis Cardinals.

Okay first order of business, does everyone already have their new uniforms?
I wasn't finished.

AKA Jim Edmonds STARTING Center Fielder of YOUR 2008 National League Central Division Champion Chicago Cubs!

Yeah, but where'd you play last year douchehole?
It's funny I told Piniella that I was going to go to Europe to see Limp Bizkit tour and he said that was cool. When I came back the Cubs told me they didn't want to make the playoffs so they didn't need me. That's baseball for you.
you should check out owl city. great music to listen to with the ladies :)
HE DIDN'T INTRODUCE HIMSELF
GUYS. Did everyone get their uniforms?
I got mine, but I think it's the wrong one. It says "Sounds" on the front and has a music note with a baseball on the hat.
me 2
Mine is wrong too. It doesn't say "JIM EDMONDS STARTING CENTER FIELDER" on the back lol
You aren't being serious are you? You think you are not only going to make the team, but become a starter in a center field? This is a joke, right?
Yeah, why not? I am Mr. National League Central. Seven playoff appearances for NL Central teams in nine years. If the team wants to win, I'm in.
Yeah, but you're a douchebag. Nobody likes you in Milwaukee. Or anywhere outside of St. Louis.
Yeah, and who is going to fill the "good looking player" role now that JJ Hardy is gone? I'll give you a hint, it's got two thumbs and a Diamondbacks hat on. Give up?

IT'S THIS GUY!

Yeah and who is going to fill the Chris Duffy/Corey Patterson useless outfielder role?
Not you. lol
Can't argue with him there.
Okay, I can see this is going nowhere. I am going to end this chat.
Yeah, don't want to be late for another Tommy John surgery.
wait i need to kno r there lots of pretty grls in milwaukee who like middle infielders? ;)
That depends. Are you like 40 years old?
no :)))
Then no.
its pittsburg all over again ;((
Hey, wasn't Mark Mulder supposed to be here?
WHATS A LIMP BISCUIT?
MULDER!? GO CARDS!!!!

Vince Morales is the guy who runs this site. He likes the Milwaukee Brewers, pro wrestling and beer. If he offended you he is very, very sorry.

    so true about the only possible use for Trent Oeltjen–and the Counsell fangirls, for that matter.
