Observations from Rome

I was at the game in Rome tonight (Friday), and here are a few things I thought I'd report to anyone interested:

1.  Freddie Freeman is not only a power hitting dude at 1st, but he's also very good defensively.  He hurt himself pretty good tonight chasing a ball into foul territory - banged his knee into a concrete wall.  He limped throughout the rest of the inning, but came out of the game the next inning out.  He came out of the clubhouse limping and with his knee wrapped and said he wants to play tomorrow night, but he figures they'll make him sit.  Here's hoping he only misses the one game.

2.  It looks like the Jon Gilmore era in Rome may begin soon.  The big club website lists him on the Rome roster, but the Rome website does not.  The rumor at the stadium tonight was that Samuel Sime had been sent back to extended spring training, but I didn't hear any mention of Gilmore.  I just happened on his name on the roster.  We'll see what happens - maybe the paper will have the roster moves.  Adam Coe, incidentally, has been playing regularly at 3rd and has been doing very well - he hit a home run tonight and got a double that almost went out. 

3.  Mr. Kurt Kemp was in attendance tonight - he sat behind the plate and watched Corey Gearrin and Scott Diamond pitch.  He moved up to the suite seats for a while (the Atlanta Braves game was on the tv).  Who knows exactly what he was doing - maybe just taking inventory, who knows, but one usher told me he was there last night as well when Locke pitched.

That's about it.  Rome lost, so blech.
