we'll be on ESPN and ESPNU a few time this year.

all good.
he had a few more appearances than the other big names, but that was more due to the extra games we had.
I believe he only averaged in the neighborhood of 6.2 innings per appearance if i remember right.

LSU playing the back end of a double header vs. William and Mary.
Landry just stole his 4th base (LSU record, last done by Mitchell last year) of the game.

couple other Tigers to possibly keep an eye on:
Matt Gaudet - SR - DH/OF: great power to all fields

Trey Watkins - SO - OF: only a sophomore, so he ain't draft eligible, but WOW this guy is fun to watch. Amazing speed (on par with J. Mitchell), prototypical leadoff guy, regularly takes pitchers deep in the count, high OBP guy, really good instincts on the bases, and a great feel for when to take off on a steal.

Watkins had an OBP right at .500 before the start of the double header today. He's been on base seemingly all day.
2 triples, a walk, and a HPB (4th or 5th time he's been hit this year) in game 1, and he's 3 for 3 in game 2.

Coach announced today that his "Recovery Period" is being extended by a week. Meaning he ain't gonna pitch this weekend either.

I'm not liking the way this is sounding.
They're calling it a stress reaction. And this is all precautionary.

I realize that they may be just saving him for the conference slate/postseason, but I don't get all warm and fuzzy with him sitting out this long.

Hoping for him it isn't more serious than they're publicly admitting.

I haven't heard/reach much about his injury on any college/prospect sites, so I'm going to guess it isn't too serious. They are doing the right thing by being extra cautious though. Kid is in line for a nice chunk of change this summer, and they don't want to jeopardize his potential MLB career.

word on the street is he'll throw a side session tomorrow.

if it doesn't go the way he and LSU are hoping, he may have to get his elbow scoped

looking good for Ranaudo.
little/no pain in his bullpen session today.

not gonna set a timetable for his return just yet.
gonna see how he feels tomorrow, then again after his next throwing session.

sounding positive so far.

P.S. sorry for hijacking this thread into an Anthony Ranaudo watch.

Andy posted his Mock Draft #3 - First Round.

Also, MLB Bonus Baby will be part of the SB Nation in the near future.

Makes me sick to think of the money we spent in the high rounds of the early 2000's for what we got out of it. So is the 'crapshoot' of the draft...

If Ranaudo falls to us at 13 because of the recent injury problems, will the Sox take a chance on this guy? He was projected as the #2 overall pick before the injury. The ohter problem is he's a Boras guy... I'd like to see a top guy like this...

Perhaps. The comments about a framework to work with Boras in the future, stemming from the Damon negotiations make me hopeful.

If Ranaudo bounces back there isn't much chance he's still around at 13 though.

Is he going to be on a reduced workload?

i haven't heard/read anything official, but if I had to guess, he'll probably be on a pitch count.
