    Ah did not know that, even better really.

    With just two summer OVs available, this is exciting.
  3. I forgot about this thread since we started winning, my apprehension of the shoe dropping won’t go away lol This is a brutal stretch of 13 games against Red Sox for 7, Yankees for 3, and the recent sweep of the Angels is a good start. This will be a great test to see what kind of team they have. I’m loving this lineup, top to bottom and someone is always coming up with a clutch hit or homerun even. I’m also impressed by Leblanc and Gonzalez, they have stepped up lately. Everyday Eddy is nasty, hopefully Nicasio figures out his problems, Dipoto has been making some good moves and Servais is pulling the right strings.
  4. This reminds me of when Felix finally won the Cy Young because he would have great seasons but the Mariners sucked and couldn’t score him any runs. It was the year CC had I think 20+ wins, which is the new 30+ season, and the voters tipped the cap to Felix with his metrics because he got no run support and the team historically sucked. It’s sad this is the first season since ‘01 where Felix has a legit shot to pitch in the playoffs, but is past his prime. He means so much to Seattle and there isn’t anybody more in sports right now who I hope turns his career back around in time for his moment to shine one last run - if he continues to trend downward. I am a baseball guy, but I can’t stand rooting for bad baseball or closely following bad teams. I could imagine how hard that is to get through a Mets season right now, sorry Mav

    I wasn’t attempting to speak for other posters, just sharing what John Talman and Sharp had to say about all the offers to the mid-grade offers. It’s similar to Matt Campbell at ISU. The cohesion of the staff has allowed them to narrow down their shotgun offer approach based on experience of coaching together and having a plan - not just on the field, but also roles for specific kids. Like every staff, they’ll miss on kids and like Mav stated, gotta build a foundation, but when we read or listen to the coaches speak publicly, their message is consistent and their plan is clear. Thats not honeymooning, Mike Hughes and Shaqueem Griffin are the proof in the pudding.

  7. What’s the deal with Northwestern landing this transfer QB and why are Husker media tweeting about it like it’s important?

      Seeing how Schaefer, Josh Peterson, Jack Mitchell all have tweeted about it and quote retweeted, couldn’t tell if there is an inside joke or not. 


      Its a nice pickup, but just curious if it’s legit hype. The reports heralding his recruiting ranking leaves me wondering “who cares?” 5* transfer QBs are the trend these days.

    I believe I heard on S&B, minus the B this week, the prospects at that range who continue to get recruited by the staff is a testament to identifying talent, knowing and sticking to their plan, but mostly the cohesiveness of the staff. The latter seems to currently be their biggest advantage.

    I’m all aboard on this dude. Even if he doesn’t end up at Nebraska, I’ll still root for him, he’s someone for others to look up to.
  12. So, who is going to leave?

    I just voted for Jack McVeigh, is that how it works?
  13. So I met Bill Moos and his wife at work recently and aside from the super friendly nature everyone has mentioned, After sharing my Eastern Washington connection he asked where I grew up in Washington, I was surprised to learn that we went to the same high school and some of his connections over lapped my childhood experiences. Small world.

      How cool!  I love stories like this!  Thanks for sharing. 

  14. Marco Gonzalez throwin some ched. His last two starts now have been real impressive. Be nice to hold up that consistency.
  15. They’re grinding it out. It’s been nice to follow a winning team who is staying in contention, just wish they could start winning some series off of Astros and Angels. They have a lot of depth in the lineup and unsung heroes stepping up at the right time - Zunino’s homer last night was a beauty. Just stay within striking distance while the starters nurse their nicks and get hot in the summer
