RE: Offseason baseball thread
Why would you think that ? We have one of the poorest athletic departments in D-1. And I doubt outbidding someone for an assistant baseball coach is a top priority. I would love to get Ostrander too. He's a great coach and recruiter. But I think he turned down Bama last year. Doubt we could give him enough of a raise to change his mind.

But Tech's is one of the few that consistently trails ours as far as that goes.

I was about to say. And Berry makes quite a bit more than Burroughs. Almost double, I think. Would think our assistant pay is better too.

I wouldn't be surprised if McCarty stays for his senior year.

Also kinda surprised braley isn't on that list. Must have been 20 scouts in Biloxi watching him.

Would love to see our Juniors stay. Could be a big year next year if they do.

We'll see what happens. If I'm honest, hope Fed takes the job. We can find a pitching coach at a small school that is doing phenomenal to come here and get us where we want to be. Pitching hasn't been our strong suit in a long time and Fed certainly hasn't helped develop pitchers.

Not sure I agree with that.

We typically have a solid rotation and what usually screws us every year is a late-season power outage at the plate. Very little to do with Federico.

This year was an exception to that, obviously. Couldn't really count on any of starting pitchers to provide a quality start toward the end of the season. Unfortunately we've been lacking in recruiting pitchers with good stuff the past few years and it came back to haunt us at the worst times. Perhaps he is to shoulder some blame for that.

Braley and McCarty were both very solid down the stretch. Lack of depth in the bullpen killed us.

Draft starts today. Rounds 1-2 tonight, 3-10 Tuesday, 11-40 Wednesday.
