Imagine a herd of bison loosed in a UNESCO world heritage site and you’ll understand the waves of dismay that coursed through parts of the baseball community when photos of a denuded and desecrated Rosenblatt Stadium hit the internet.

Prospect A-Z Day 16: Matt Purke

December 20, 2011
By
A to Z

Outfielder Oscar Taveras was the subject of yesterday's Prospect A-Z. His breakout season helps strengthening a Cardinals farm system that's starting to look much stronger compared to recent seasons. That being said, everyone saw a number of homegrown players chip in contributions to their World Series run, and sometimes it's hard to argue with results. With Albert Pujols signing elsewhere, St. Louis will need to look to its farm system to fill the void,...

Prospect A-Z Day 2: Trevor Bauer

November 15, 2011
By
A to Z

Yesterday, we reviewed one of the Rockies' top prospects, third baseman Nolan Arenado. He's been a solid, above average hitter throughout his minor league career so far, and his defense on the hot corner is improving. In an ideal world for the Rockies, he develops into a middle of the order slugger to complement Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez. While that's probably a couple years away, today's player could reach the majors sooner than...

The Bus Leagues Baseball 2011 College Baseball Super Regional Preview

College World Series Logo

Starting Friday, sixteen college baseball teams will pair off in eight best-of-three Super Regional series, with the winner of each advancing to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska. College baseball is not exactly my thing. For instance, I’m not sure I could tell you who won last year’s College World Series. (Go visit College Baseball Daily for that sort of thing.) But that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to develop (read: create from...

The 2010 College World Series All-Time Alumni Team

College World Series

A couple years ago, I put together an All-Time College World Series Alumni team for that season’s participants. Basically, I took the players with the best major league careers from each school and made a team. It was fun and mildly interesting, so I decided to bring it back this year. Two rules at play here: one, all eight teams have to be represented, and two, I wanted it to have some semblance of...

Book Another Ticket To Omaha

Arizona State was one strike away from Omaha before Arkansas's Brett Eibner, the guy who picked up the loss in Saturday night's Super Regional opener, took a hanging slider down the left field line for a game-tying homerun. Unfortunately, Eibner's dramatics only delayed the inevitable for the Razorbacks. The top-seeded Sun Devils maintained their composure, took a two-run lead on a Drew Maggi homerun in the twelfth, and held on for the 7-5 win....

Throw Another Team Into The Series

As noted just a couple hours ago, we have a fifth team in the 2010 College World Series. UCLA came from behind to win late on Saturday and transferred that momentum to Sunday, beating Cal State Fullerton 9-1 to advance to Omaha. This is the third trip to the College World Series for the Bruins, the first since 1997. In the last game tonight, Arizona State leads Arkansas, 5-4, through eight innings.

College World Series

As of this moment, four teams have qualified for the 2010 College World Series, which begins next Saturday in Omaha, Nebraska. Florida, Florida State, and TCU advanced after winning the rubber game of their Super Regional matchups earlier today. South Carolina didn't need a third game, sweeping Coastal Carolina 4-3 and 10-9. It will be the 20th College World Series appearance for Florida State. South Carolina is making its ninth trip to Omaha, Florida...

Four Days From Omaha

June 10, 2010
By

With all the focus on the MLB draft this week, I somehow missed the fact that we are just days away from finding out which eight teams will represent their schools in the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska. Sixty-four teams entered double elimination regional play at sixteen regional sites last weekend, with the top team from each location advancing to the Super Regionals, best-of-three matchups that begin tomorrow and run through Monday. Four...

A Mendonca Among Boys

August 6, 2009
By

Spokane's Tommy Mendonca has been on a bit of a hot streak lately, hitting .395 in his last ten games.  He has had multiple hits in half of those and exactly three in four. Last night against Salem-Keizer, the 21-year-old out of Fresno State enjoyed the best game of his young career, belting three solo homeruns to lead the Indians to a 6-2 win. Mendonca was the Most Outstanding Player at the 2008 College...
