    Big12 Baseball and O’Brate opening

    With an elite recruiting class coming and some Srs staying, there was expected to be transfers: D1baseball lists: Ryan Van Leeuwen, Josh Spiegel, and Cam Thompson as entering the transfer portal. I assume there will be more to come.

    That is correct, but let’s say we have 2 scholarships split up by 4 Juniors we anticipated getting drafted, like KP. But with the draft maybe only being 5 rounds, now KP may not get drafted and leave. But his scholarship was promised to an incoming recruit. That’s where the scholarship crunch...

    Big12 Baseball and O’Brate opening

    Considering the MLB is looking to downsize the draft, I don’t think there’s any concern of them treating enrolled students as essentially still in high school and it likely runs afoul of the MLB draft rule that says once you enroll at a D1, you must obtain the age of 21 or be 3 years out of high...

    To get back on topic: Josh was on PerfectGame's College Baseball show on ESPNU Radio SiriusXm today. He said the players are all adjusting to distance learning and he's hearing good things about their classroom performance. He also said 7 players stayed on campus instead of going home to avoid...

    Big12 Baseball and O’Brate opening

    I think Parker & Polc are draft targets if it’s 10 rounds, but probably not if it’s just 5. So they would benefit by returning if they don’t get drafted this year, without losing their leverage. Parker was likely to leave last summer, because he got offered a large signing bonus, I just don’t...

    Big12 Baseball and O’Brate opening

    I think it’s highly unlikely that any Senior would choose to sign a free agent contract for 20k, if their goal is to continue playing baseball as a job. They would have a strong financial incentive to stay and play here for a year and try for a better minor league situation in 2021. Especially...

    Big12 Baseball and O’Brate opening

    I guess we can start the 2020 off season now. Is there any chance Parker Scott turns down the money again? Do seniors like Ben Leeper that have improved their draft stock use the additional year of eligibility as leverage to get a good contract and go pro now (instead of getting paid nothing...

    The College World Series isn’t until June. You could have waited until May to make that call after we learned more about how things were going.

    Big12 Baseball and O’Brate opening

    Looks like Pac-12 and SEC have cancelled baseball, but so Bowlsby is still discussing it with the Big12 ADs. But considering TCU and Texas have already banned fans, OSU and OU have gone online only, I don’t think the votes will be in favor of playing.

    I get this pit in my stomach that it isn’t going to happen for a bit. No inside info, but that’s how the tea leaves read.

    It’s early. One weekend doesn’t mean anything. We need more consistency from starting pitching, but otherwise, I think we are solid. A win today vs a struggling aTm and the general tone of our fans would change, but we won’t be any better or worse. It just feels that way when you win.

    FWIW, I’m in the park, the wind speed is way up today, but it seems to swirl more than it did the previous two days when it was consistent to the LF foul pole. May play a bigger role in high hits today.

    We have better bats than Dylan. That should be the bigger factor. Our lineup is better with Polc at second. I would rather see Blake Robertson get a look at third if Thompson has to miss any time. But I’m not sure he made the trip to Frisco.

    He took the rubber without the ball. First baseman still had it.

    2020 Cowboy Baseball

    Answering several questions pending recently, since it’s not FallBall, I would not expect any kind of public scrimmage schedule. The guys are practicing every day to get ready for the season, but in season Josh takes more quiet approach to what is being displayed in practice. Josh loves...

    2-3 years ago TH made the comment on a Bedlam broadcast that you don’t build a massive stadium to not use it. The in season bedlam game on that Friday night only confirmed everyone’s suspicions that a home bedlam game that counts would drive ticket sales. Pretty sure this has been in the works...

    Texas Bowl vs aTm

    The best TV viewer numbers the Alamo has ever gotten included Texas. Love or hate ‘em people watch them. Our value seems to have slipped in the last few days on a belief that we may not have Chuba. And a Chuba-less OSU has no appeal.
