    D1 has us in their conversation as well. FWIW, those predictions are usually HEAVILY based on the feel they get talking to the coaching staffs.

    1. Last I heard, they were going to try Sparks out both ways. That was before his TJ surgery, though. I really like Sifrit's speed and wish we could find a way to get him on the base paths. Like you and I discussed, speed is something we really lacked in the lineup this past year. 2. Lyons...

    Pretty giddy about how good the pitching staff could be next year. Every finger and toe crossed that everyone can stay healthy.

    Exactly. I saw a video the other day of Tank going opposite field for an RBI double. If TH has him thinking about beating the shift, that can only be a good thing.

    They play a lot travelling team tournaments at the college campuses over the summer.

    Fly fishing 2017

    Yeah, I will never keep a smallmouth or any fish from a small stream. It takes YEARS for a smallie to get to any real size in anything other than a lake or the biggest river. Those fish are too precious to take out, IMO. I always mash down my hook barbs as well. It's cost me some really nice...

    Fly fishing 2017

    My brother and I explored a tiny Oklahoma stream earlier this week. Caught some smallmouth, spots and sunfish. Everything we caught is still swimming.

    Cowboys in the 2018 MLB Draft

    Only recruit who was drafted was Hueston Morrill, who went in the mid-late 30 rounds. He was ranked much higher than that on most draft prospect lists, which is usually an indication that a guy is leaning toward going to college. It's never a given, but I'd assume that they should all get to...

    Holder wants recruiting to improve

    Not to derail the thread, but baseball does pretty dang well given the facilities issue, on the one side, and the draft and scholarship limits, on the other. Off the very top of my head, we had at least 6 guys on this year's team who were top 150-175 recruits in their graduating class...

    Cowboys in the 2018 MLB Draft

    You'd have to assume they are the favorites in the clubhouse, but the JUCOs (Gragg and Lyons) come in having put up a lot of wins. (No inside info, but I also wouldn't be surprised to learn that we aren't done recruiting). The great news - knock on wood - is that RW will have a much fuller...

    Cowboys in the 2018 MLB Draft

    + arm, for sure. I'm just glad he's getting a chance. When we were getting down to round 30, I started wondering if we'd see his name. Some might not remember, but he likely would have been a top 10 round pick out of HS (was ranked #48 nationally by Perfect Game) had he been willing to sign...

    Would love to have him back, but wish him well if he goes. He was a huge part of this team's success.

    Cowboys in the 2018 MLB Draft

    IMO, I'd pump the brakes a bit until we see him play defense. Neustifter was a stud at third and seems to be getting better with reps. I also won't be surprised if Funk hits better next year. He missed a lot of time in JUCO due to knee injuries. Good news, either way, is that we should have...

    Open letter to Coach's Holder/Holliday/Walton from a fan who wants to be a FAN

    Yes, 3 paid coaches (HC and 2 assistants). I believe volunteer assistants have ways of making money - i.e. running camps, etc. - but it's definitely no more than a stepping stone to bigger and better things. Josh's first volunteer assistant, Steve Sabins, is now an assistant at WV and his...

    Cowboys in the 2018 MLB Draft

    Well said, and I should amend my statement above. Selfishly, I hope they come back because I think next year could be an Omaha type season with a few breaks along the way, but I'll root for them whatever they decide.
