One Buck Makes an All-Star Team

Garrett Temple has been named to the D-League's East Conference All-Star squad. Joe Alexander would be one of his opponents, and if you believe this FanHouse post, Wisconsin alum Marcus Landry was snubbed. It also notes Tiny Gallon may be a replacement for the East team.

Click here for enlarged version. I posted a slightly different version of this in the last Game Thread. I'm re-posting because I feel like tooting my own horn to celebrate the new year.

Missing 20 FT in a Game

Dale Sveum given two-year extension as hitting coach

22

From Adam McCalvy's blog: "I was informed last night by the Pirates that I won't be considered for their job, so that was a little disappointing," Sveum told the radio station. "But on the good side, I am coming back as the hitting instructor for the Brewers for the next two years. So that's good. I love Milwaukee, and hopefully we can get a manager in here pretty quick and can get that sealed and done and we can get back to playing some real aggressive-type baseball, the way our players really want to play -- get back to running the bases and doing some things."
