hope so!

That was my thought. The way this season ended had to leave a sour taste in their mouth. Hopefully it brings them back with some fire next season.

McCarty won't go that high. He has slightly above average stuff that is very hittable if he isn't perfectly locating his pitches. Good college pitcher.

I'm worried about Braley the most. He's 91-94 with a good slider and change. That's big league stuff. However, he's going to get penalized heavily for being under 6 feet tall.

You can buy a lot of sugar with a signing bonus, or you could take a David Clark line drive off your knee defending the SUNWACUSA crown.

We have maybe 7 total at full strength. They had about 15 before all their injuries. Velocity isn't everything. But if I have a choice between a staff with 15 90 MPH guys or one with 7, I'm taking the one with 15 every single time.

Players wash out because they can't hit a breaking ball, not because they can't catch-up to a fast ball. I'd take 7 strong arms and 7 who can make a ball circle the plate every time.

What you do with those other 7-8 spots depends on whether you prefer to diversify or just load up on spares. Young guys throwing 90+ are hell to face, but they aren't the most durable things in the world.

If he goes I wish we'd hire Richie Haralson from NW Mississippi. He was here for the 2009 run. Great coach, great guy.

Harrelson is at Northeast. I believe he was well liked here. Would be interesting if he made the move back. I believe he was a volunteer assistant during his time here.

I'd like to see us make a run at La Tech's pitching coach Ostrander "IF" Federico should leave. Not sure what he's making at La Tech but surely we could match or increase his pay you'd think.
