2011 “Love Notes”: Infielders

At the end of 2008, I wrote an end of the year wrap-up on each player in the organization. 2009 was skipped, and last year I decided to write “love notes” instead of a semi-objective wrap up for each player. A few people have wondered if I’m doing the same this year – why not? So here are short little notes to the boys, from one of their biggest fans. Ya know. :)

Names taken from baseball-reference.com, hope I didn’t miss anyone...

Dear Fweddie,

If I could give you one hug for every hug you gave another Brave this year, I would. The hugs made this year so, so special. :D

Love,
Lauren

Dear Huggla,

I never gave up on you in the first 3 months of the season, never wore your shirsey ironically, and defended your defense to every “fan” who was being grumpy. I’m looking forward to the next four years.

Love,
Lauren

PS – The giant tobacco ball looks like poo when you play with it with your mouth opening. Please stop that.
PPS – I would love to see you arm wrestle someone next year. Maybe work it into a handshake? :)

Your cleats are the best on the team, your defense was totally amazing, and I love your gameface. Hope you’re back next year.
