Kostin's around as of now. He and Logan Brown are battling it out for starts. James Neal was sent out. Team's getting healthy. There is not room for everyone, and that's a good thing.
He's talked about being more willing to experiment with platoons and game-day lineups that prioritize those matchups over continuity, so I'd expect more players playing and more day-to-day change based on those statements. He will have to make sure the regulars are on board with that and buy in. The best way for everyone to see the light is to win, of course.
Oh there are worse ones. Much worse. And recently. Like the story out there that alleges baseball was using two different versions of the ball this season. Players are not happy about that report.
So, you knew he was on board when you said the recruiting was dead? Why not mention him? Or, you don't think a four-star signee is a big deal on a team that can only play five guys at once? If so, that kind of goes against the notion of recruiting failures being the reason to fire the coach, no? Those ready for a coaching chance can just say so. They have company. But ignoring or misrepresenting facts doesn't make an argument stronger. It does the opposite.
Last year, for the first time, the MLB held the draft in July. There's no set date for the next one and it will be determined by the CBA negotiations. Another wrinkle. Horn is not expected to be on campus for spring practices.
I'll have to look into that, along with the theory the first check was accidentally made out to Hans Wiemann by mistake.
Time to jet, folks. Thanks for the good debate and discussion and some laughs along the way. Same time, place next week. Cheers.
