re: Nick Longhi - OldAlexBox on 7/12/13 at 1:36 pm
Ok so lets assume it takes him an amazing 3 years to make it to the big leagues. The day he is called up he makes major league minimum, which is approx. $440,000 or $2,716 per game pro-rated. I consider that decent money. Lets say it takes him the average 5 years to make it up.. he would be 22/23...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Colvin got $900,000, damn good money. What got everyone all upset was he was on campus for freshman orientation so assumptions were made that he was coming to school. Great negotiating tactic by Colvin. Cecchini initially asked for 1.75 mil and got 1.3, so I guess he got way less than what he w...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Things to do in St. Louis? - OldAlexBox on 7/1/13 at 1:30 pm
Do not do the arch.. Hot, crowded, AC sucks.. just generally miserable. Zoo is really nice and FREE. They usually do an airshow on the riverfront downtown that is really cool, but may be a little loud for a 2 month old....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: 2013 CWS in a nutshell... - OldAlexBox on 6/26/13 at 9:28 am
Out of all of the nonsense posted since LSU's departure from the CWS, you just brought up the topic at the heart of college baseball today. Parity. For years every school outside of the south and west coast has complained loudly about the "advantages" warm weather teams have over everyone else. F...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Does it make you feel any better to know - OldAlexBox on 6/26/13 at 8:41 am
Huh? How is the current college game dissimilar due to the bats and ball structure? If anything the college game now with the bats and ball change is more comparable to low minor leagues.. High school players use the same bats as college guys they know exactly what the college game is. The choice t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: What the '14 baseball team is shaping up to look like - OldAlexBox on 6/21/13 at 2:07 pm
Laird's summer on the Cape will go a long way in determining his future draft outlook. Athleticism, speed and defense are definitely there. If he can handle the transition to the wood bat this summer, he may have a decision to make after next season....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Why isn't the baseball draft after the CWS? - OldAlexBox on 6/20/13 at 2:33 pm
Technically they can begin the negotiation process, but traditionally the team will wait until the player is finished with his season. Definitely can't sign.. They immediately lose amateur status and would be ineligible....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: boys travel baseball teams - OldAlexBox on 6/19/13 at 2:25 pm
So I take it you would put your 7 year old on a travel team? :cool: I'm putting one together and will let your son try out for the bargain price of $1650. We will have super sweet uniforms and all the moms will have matching tank tops and we will travel around whipping arse in coaches pitch. That ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: boys travel baseball teams - OldAlexBox on 6/19/13 at 2:14 pm
I will take a shot at answering your initial question.. IMO people form "travel" teams because they think they can collectively bring a select group of kids together for all of the reasons you listed. I believe little league and throwing and hitting with old dad in the backyard is plenty at age 7....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: CPM's Lack of Strategic Coaching - OldAlexBox on 6/19/13 at 8:56 am
Any fan who compares Vandy's baseball program to LSU's is just plain dumb. Corbin is an excellent coach and so is James Franklin, but put them both in Baton Rouge and they don't last 5 years if their results are the same. Expectations are a bit higher in BR. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
