What a weekend for Mark DeRosa

Mark DeRosa, probably Penn's most famous baseball player (with Doug Glanville a close second), is having a memorable weekend. On Saturday, the former Penn star who also played QB for the Quakers was traded from last-place Cleveland to the St. Louis Cardinals, who are currently tied for first in the NL Central. Although he went 0-for-3 in his debut game, he still made a very impressive catch in left field that was considered Sunday's second-best web gem (about 30 seconds in).

As a result of the publicized trade, many people were atwitter about the deal. Literally. As UTB observed, Mark DeRosa was one of the "trending topics" on Twitter this weekend, somehow only right beyond the misspelled "Micheal Jackson."

However, as for UTB's petition for DeRosa as commencement speaker next year, there's no way that's happening. Whether or not he'd be able to give a good speech, I somehow doubt he'll willingly take time off from the May baseball schedule to speak. But maybe in a few years when the 34-year old decides to retire he'll return to Franklin Field.

  1. Was Howard Gensler trying to weave a DeRosa comment
    into the Tattles column today?

    Or was that an unfounded rumor on the Cornell blogs?

  2. Can someone please tell me who Howard Gensler is?

    Between Gensler and Lubin, I feel like there is some bizarro
    sub-culture going on around here

  3. Howard is also one of the world's preeminent authorities of the Tator Tot.

    As part of his ritual for away games, he is often seen out and about
    trying to find the best Tator Tots in the area.

    Its his calling card. More or less.
