    Midwest League All Stars

    Kohl Stewart, Yorman Landa and Bryan Haar will represent the Cedar Rapids Kernels in the Midwest League All Star game.

    Not sure that there are a lot of Kernels that are deserving, but Mitch Garver had to be in the discussion.

    Extremely surprised no Mitch Garver.
    Scouting Report: Tools - Power: 30, Hitting: 50, Arm: 60, Defense: 40, Speed: 40. "Line drive swing and shows good contact and on-base abilities. Double's power at his peak. Strong arm from 2B or the OF, stiff hands. Not a fast runner, but above average instincts on the bases. Skinny body doesn't look the part, but can sneak up on you. ACL surgery sapped much of his athleticism." (Probably)
    Spring Training Regular since 2011.

    Last year was an incredible year for Cedar Rapids with so much talent. This year there isn't much prospect talent but they still are interesting to watch.

    There is no excuseable way that Garver should not have made the All Star team:

    Garver - Cedar Rapids (HOW DOES HE NOT START)
    .308 BA - .393 OBP - 14 2B - 1 3B - 7 HR - 37 RBI - 54 Games

    Remillard - Kane County (RESERVE for ALL STAR GAME)
    .319 BA - .382 OBP - 12 2B - 0 3B - 1 HR - 25 RBI - 35 Games

    Littlewood - Clinton (STARTER for ALL STAR GAME)
    .286 BA - .383 OBP - 10 2B - 0 3B - 4 HR - 24 RBI - 34 Games

    Garver is the best catcher in the league hands down. UNREAL

    Garver was a definite snub. Hoping maybe he'll be a late addition if someone named can't play.
