Didn’t know that. I’m sure he’d be fine there but it’s prob not what is best for his future

What makes you think Milazzo won’t be back?



He's old enough to sign pro if he wanted to. With Travinski out, I think it's less likely that he gets frustrated and bolts.

But as of a few weeks ago we were looking at the potential of something like this:

Doughty exhausts eligibility and doesn't use extra year
Wyeth leaves to find playing time in his last year
Milazzo gets tired of playing for this staff and takes whatever is offered from a pro team
Travinksi (pre injury) gets tired of not getting regular ABs and goes elsewhere to find them

Both commits get drafted and sign.

I brought it up a while back and said even then that it was highly improbable, but not out of the realm of possibility.

Similar to Marceaux they probably will have a guy who has the potential for the draft show up and be able to start on the weekends
Other than dugas at the position standpoint a lot is coming back

Are you saying you don’t think he would have a scholarship unless there is some kind of waiver? I can see where it maybe throws a wrench into things if you didn’t expect to have him back, but I assume either the current staff or a new one would want to keep a vet like that around if he wants to return.
11.7 can have really bad consequences and this is one of them. With so many position guys returning and us needed to use scholarships on OOS pitchers (8 of the 9 currently committed), you may be asking someone like Labas to take less and who knows what that could mean. That's my only point. You want him badly to stay no doubt, but you have also made promises to recruits.

Him, Safford, and Bianco also worked there in the fall for emergency reasons as a COVID countermeasure.

Crews' bat will play anywhere, his arm could play behind the plate, but (as a pro team) why wait on him to develop behind the plate when you can aggressively promote him because of his bat?

He benefits from the new deadline I believe. Since he turns 21 on Aug 1st.

Correct. If the draft were at the same time it has been in the past, he would not be eligible. He's one of a handful of players around the SEC affected, and the only one on LSU's roster.

two catchers currently committed.


Both projected to be top 5 round draft picks, so very likely neither will make it to campus.

I would say getting one or the other is probably more likely than losing both.

We won't get Moller but I still have hopes for Jensen.

Why do I feel like we'd have less roster turnover in a coaching transition than if we stayed status quo?

That was my initial thoughts. This thread made me look a little into our class and MLB.com actually has Jensen ranked higher than Moller. Moller is better defensively, but Jensen has some serious pop in his bat. I sure hope one of them slips through.

We are barreling toward a scenario where we have no catchers on the roster for next season. It's kind of amazing actually.


What makes it spectacular is the catchers coach is also the recruiting coordinator
He should be on top having options lined up

Moller draft stock has been on the decline and Jensen has gone up. That gives me a little hope Moller will want to prove something.

Leto has a chance of making it to campus and brings a big bat.

Mansfield, Kudrna and Selvidge are the big pitchers all are high draft risk.

Juco and portal are real possibilities, especially if we have new coach. I actually think Hasty could be decent if he gains more control.

re: Who is supposed to be the stud pitcher next year?
You can make a hypothetical for each current and signed catcher to leave, but many of those are based on others at the position staying. There is close to a 0% chance that we won’t have any of Milazzo, Wyeth, Travinski, Moller, or Jensen on next year’s team.

ETA: And given Travinski’s situation I would bet they have another catcher for this class in their back pocket if needed.

Ian Moller coming in next year from Iowa is a great defensive catcher that can hit.
Just hope he does not go pro as I am sure he will get drafted.
