All those close losses don't have manager Tommy Watkins concerned, however. "The good thing is, after all those games, we responded afterwards," Watkins said on Saturday. "We've lost a couple of games in the ninth inning, but it happens. We've got a young team. We're going to take some bumps and bruises, but I think things have been pretty good to start the season." In fact, Watkins said his team has pretty much performed at expected levels. "Palacios has been swinging a hot bat and giving us a real boost at the leadoff spot," Watkins said, of his shortstop.

If you see Watkins at a ballpark without a smile on his face, snap a picture quick. It would be a rarity. Early during the media session, Watkins was asked what sort of mood he likes to see in his team's clubhouse. Martinez, claimed Tommy won the dance contest and Tommy claimed the two coaches had been the winners. Whether or not there was an actual winner of that contest, there was no question that Watkins, his coaches and his players all are looking forward to having a fun season - and winning some baseball games along the way. "I'm excited about all of these guys," Watkins said of the players making up the first roster of his minor league managing career. Hitting coach Brian Dinkelman, Manager Tommy Watkins and Pitching coach JP Martinez (photo: SD Buhr) "(Tommy) is great. I think he's really going to develop team chemistry and that's pretty important," Poppen said, of his manager. "We had Tommy in instructs (fall instructional league) and spring training," Blankenhorn added. "I didn't know Tommy going into instructs and he came in already cracking jokes at me, so he's definitely going to keep us loose in the dugout."

Still, Watkins said, "I didn't know if I would get it or not." Trevor May and Tommy Watkins react to Byron Buxton explaining how he "noodled" a catfish Once the assignment was officially offered, Watkins was very happy to accept. Asked by Atteberry to tell the gathering what went into the front office's decision to offer the job to Watkins, Levine led off with tongue firmly planted in cheek. "One of the things that I heard when I first joined the Minnesota Twins was about the man to my right, Tommy, and I think the universal feeling was that he had a chance to be a really good hitting coach, but he had the chance to be special as a manager. Watkins said before the event that he's looking forward to his return to the Kernels. The final question from the audience asked Watkins and Buxton to relate the funniest thing that happened to them during their time with the Kernels.

There was a signup sheet in the Kernels' clubhouse with nine lines on it for volunteers to sign up to work the camp. Every line was filled and a couple additional players wrote their names in between the lines, giving Watkins a group of 11 ballplayers pitching in for the two-hour long camp, topped off with an autograph session. Kernels General Manager Scott Wilson was also appreciative of the time put in by Watkins and the players. "The way that Tommy runs it now, I love it, because everybody rotates to little different things."

Watkins believes English can handle the spot at the top of the Kernels' batting order. He's got tools," Watkins said, of English, over the weekend. "I think there is a difference when you lead off," Watkins added, "but just talking to Tanner about slowing things down a little bit and not using his body as much.

Watkins thinks Kanzler's on the right track with that goal. "I think for him just to work on his overall game," Watkins said.
