Stories from above–steel snouts edition

Good morning from the booth at Alliance Bank Stadium.  The Chiefs are off and rolling, on pace for 144-0.  A few notes from the first two wins over the IronPigs from Allentown:

*Trent Jewett seems to manage similarly to Tim Foli–100 miles per hour.  In the opener, his double steal with Pete Orr and Eric Bruntlett set up a pair of runs.  He’s an active manager, physically, too.  Trent spends as much time in the third base coaching box as Calista Flockhart spends at the buffet.  Not much.
*Roger Bernadina seems to show no ill effects from the ankle injury last season.  He stole two bags last year and has played a steady corner outfield.
*Josh Wilkie’s first appearance (in game two) was superb.  Scoreless 10th inning for the win.  8 out of 10 pitches were strikes.
*On a personal note, I caught the flu on Wednesday.  Last night, as I was trying to fall asleep, I clicked onto TNT and started watching Bones.  Very rarely do I watch TNT if I’m not ill.  I think this goes for most of America.
Airtime is 1:30.  Former Chief Rich Thompson will join me and Mike.
