Here comes Rusty

Anybody have any news on Rusty Brown's progress? Cooney's DIamond Diary this week - which for a coach is a very well written column - said Rusty could be available to pinch-hit this weekend against GW.

Our offense could use the boost ;D

I believe Rusty needs about another week to mend,
should be ready in time for the Invitational the following
weekend or so we hope. He may see some DH time
this weekend.

Rusty went 1-for-1 in his only at-bat Friday, his first plate appearance of the season. He was pulled for a pinch runner after re-aggravating his foot injury.

Let's hope it's nothing serious. We could use Rusty against Notre Dame but it's more important that he's ready by the time the A-Sun schedule kicks in.

Let hope he recovers quickly.

Bad news about Rusty. :'(

Word on the street is that he isn't healing nearly as fast as they would like and could be shut down for the season. If he is shelved for the rest of the year, they are hoping for a medical redshirt.

We could have used him against Campbell's lefties last weekend.

Yikes that is truly horrible news to hear CanandianOwl. Sad to say Ive heard much the same. Until its definite, Im going to continue to hope for a late return this year. If we could just get him back in maybe Mid-May so he could have a few series before the playoffs to get back in the swing of things, our post season hopes would be so much better. Wouldnt it just be sweet to have Rusty coming off the bench in the regional winners bracket game against UM, hobbling up to the plate and doing his best Kirk Gibson imitation and sending the Canes to defeat?! Thats the thought Im going to keep thinking instead of him being gone for the year! :)

Nice image Burrowing, but Gibson was a lefty.

But that would make it even better. Have Rusty turn around and hit from the other side of the plate and plant one on the fourth deck of their stupid parking garage at Mark Light.

Whose bright idea was it to put a parking garage in the outfield?

That parking garage is a good place from which to steal catchers' signals and relay to the hitter!

Nice image Burrowing, ….

I could see him walking-up to the plate… ;)

That is rather unfortunate, it's got to be hard for him to sit-out the season like this, fustrating. :(

I was aware of Gibson being left-handed-I just couldnt think of any hobbling right-handed hitters-LOL
Interesting thought you have there slider-perhaps thats why they have security chase people away who try to watch the game from up there-UM doesnt want their secret plan discovered. :)
I agree Canadian Owl-its an even better dream to have him walk to the plate and deliver the big hit without limping
This is so disheartening about Rusty-Ive been sulking around the office today after reading the news. Just this morning I was so happy after receiving an email of approval of a vacation day on June 4(first day of the regional) but now Im stuck with the thought Rusty might also be watching the regionals like me instead of playing. ARGH!! I am just going to just have to stay in denial and keep going to the games with the thought he might pop out of the dugout and be a surprise pinch-hitter. :'(
