Rueckel Report, September 1

The Outright this! edition

I know, I know. It's only been a couple of days since the last, rather mournful report. Well, it's near the end of the season, and I want to pack in a couple more updates.

Oh, and Baby Ruckles just tossed a kick-butt performance, too:

---> August 31: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 SO (credited with save in 5-3 Harrisburg victory over Reading).

[By the way, be sure to read the game summary thread by CHIP over at the BPG board. He recounts a triple play that occurred in the game. Unfortunately, it was turned against the Senators and involved a momentary lapse of reason by Ryan Zimmerman. Consider it a last hurrah for Zimmerman, who's now a big leaguer.]

Brick drops an interesting factoid:

Jason Bergmann shares his birthday with Danny Rueckel, September 25, but is one year younger than Baby Ruckles. Should it be Baby Bergmann?

Good question.

The funny thing with "Baby Ruckles"---if you've ever wondered of the derivation---is that I had no part in its creation. For the story, check out the very first Rueckel Report, specifically the first comment by "The Natsural." It's totally a product of Charlie Brotman, the RFK Stadium sound system, and a creative interpretation thereof. I've proferred other nicknames, such as "Grand Master Ruckus," but "Baby Ruckles" is the one that's most reoccurred here, by a wide margin.

Oh, and check out the fifth comment; it's from Poppa Ruckles. I'm sure I've long scared him away (and I'm sure there's probably a restraining order prohibiting me from setting foot in an Eastern League park), but that was pretty cool.


Ever wonder what a Rueckel Report from "Across the Pond" would look like? Me too!

We're in luck, then, because Pete from Donutball has created the Alex Smit Dispatches, in which he follows the aforementioned Nederlandse Honkballer.

Smit, 19, is a reliever in the Twins' system. He pitched this season for Elizabethton in the Appy League. So, it's not really an "Across the Pond" thing? Oh, but it is; Smit pitched for the Dutch in last year's Olympics, and he's a member of the Dutch squad that will compete in the World Cup, which begins tomorrow. (This is different from next spring's "World Baseball Classic"; Pete is hopeful Smit will make the team for that.)

In addition to providing an interesting narrative, Pete drops a great number of familiar names in this update, including: Gene Kingsdale, Calvin Maduro, Randall Simon, "Bam Bam" Meulens, and Davey Johnson (the US coach, as it were). Furthermore, Pete inserts a quote from Dutch coach "Robert A. Hoorn," who might very well be former big leaguer Robert Eenhoorn---who, Bill James once quipped, played in the "Oolympics."

Baseball, international intrigue, stalker-ish following of a player . . . don't miss The Alex Smit Dispatches, people!
