This Friday at 7:00pm (central time) on ESPNU
LSU vs Ole Miss

Should be Ranaudo vs Pomeranz

Ranaudo fanned 8 in 6 inning this past weekend.
5 hits, 3 earned, 3 walks.

Wish I could see it. I have a final exam tonight from 6 to 9.

Pomeranz has been lights out this year. His draft stock has gone way up. It's very likely he is taken 2, 3, or 4 if this keeps this up. I don't think he gets past Cleveland at 5.

Hopefully we'll instill some doubt in the minds of the scouts.

last night's game was rained out.
Double header today.

I'm gonna assume (nothing official) that Ranaudo and Pomeranz are gonna go at it in game 1 today.

3:00 on Sunshine network (DirecTv channel 649 if you catch it)

not exactly a pitcher's duel between them

Ranaudo chased in the 2nd after giving up several homeruns.
30 mph wind blowing out carried almost every fly ball Ole Miss hit out of the park

Pomeranz gone with nobody out in the 4th after walking 9.

College seniors with little upside? Coop'ell fix 'em.


I'm just poking a little fun at our draft strategery from a couple of years ago. I know who these guys are and their lines don't represent their talent.

I've seen a lot of Ranaudo. Dude is a stud.
He really wasn't off by much.
Wind was really whipping out, and all 3 homers he gave up barely cleared the wall. One actually looked like a foul pop heading out of play, but the wind blew it fair and carried it out.

Was my 1st chance to watch Pomeranz throw.
Was really disappointed he didn't have his stuff today.
A lot of 1st pitch balls, and he was seemingly 3-2 to every hitter.
LSU just put the bats on their shoulders, and he never really found his control. Gave up 4 (may have been 5), but only allowed 1 hit, a wind aided homer in the 1st.

Brentz certainly has a beautiful swing/MLB-level bat speed. Certainly worthy of a 1st round pick on those attributes alone. If he has half-way decent pitch recognition, and the bat control to go with it, he will be a star. Sign him up Kenny! I think he goes top 10 though...

I'm really not sure where Brentz goes at this point. I think the only questions are in his makeup and pitch recognition. I wouldn't be surprised if he goes early due to the lack of impact college bats, but I also wouldn't be surprised if he falls due to the amount of quality pitching that is available for early picks.

I really think that we are going to see Yasmani Grandal taken somewhat early this year. A high floor catcher is a very desirable commodity, and we have seen similar picks with Jason Castro in 2008 and Tony Sanchez in 2009. The Royals have been linked to him thus far this year.

I'm not the biggest Wimmers fan especially if Cole is still on the board, but he's by no means a reach at 13. I wouldn't love the pick, but I wouldn't hate it.

don't know much about the kid, but I did watch his no-hitter last year against Michigan.

obviously way too small of a sample size, but he was on that day.

Im not sure if any of you follow high school players getting scouted, but apparently a player at my high school who got a full ride to Creighton is being scouted for a possible 7-10th round pick, my friends on the team have said the Cubs are going the hardest after him but he refuses to ever play for them because hes born and raised in St. Louis and he said he would love to play for the Sox or Cardinals. Im not sure if anyone is good at finding information about kids like this but his name is Mike Gerber from Neuqua Valley
