21. Jordan Mickey
Before Mickey stole their affection, scouts started the season very excited about Jarrell Martin, another LSU freshman. Mickey's long, he's an explosive finisher around the basket (he shot 77 percent at the rim), and he's a terrific shot blocker. He also showed off an effective ...

The Orioles are apparently the leading candidate at the moment. I would love to see the Cubs resign Samardzija, but I wouldn't mind seeing Kevin Gausman in a Cubs uniform either.
[quote]The Orioles have premium young pitching that the Cubs will insist on if they are going to move their ace. Right...

| Tiger Rant|| Question Related to LSU ULL Baseball Game - PurpleAndGold86 on 2/26/14 at 7:14 am|
Can someone explain to me why everyone is saying the score was 4-1? Looking at the box score it looks like ULL scored in the top of the sixth which is when the game was called off. The game should revert back to the last completed inning and should have been 3-1. Obviously, it doesn't matter, we los...
