Tough break on Labas. Hope the Razorbacks can find a rotation for this season. Opening day less than 2 weeks away. Here's to a great season for both clubs

Labas will be a tough loss...but looks like LSU will have the pitching depth to compensate.

Sad to lose a pitcher but Reid is a hell of a player and an even better teammate to have in the dugout. Kudos PM for getting him back
