re: LSU Baseball 2018 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread *New 2021 Commit 6/18* - macaoidh
I don't see any way you could carry those two with 19 or fewer pitchers. You'd have to lose Threadgill and Gunter, which I have no information will happen....

re: Top-50 DL Nathan Pickering sets up return visit to LSU - macaoidh
Pickering on one defensive end and Sopsher on the other really ought to anchor your defense for two if not three years. They're prototype 3-4 defensive ends....

re: LSU Baseball 2018 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread *New 2021 Commit 6/18* - macaoidh
I'm going to guess at a roster here... Catchers (3): C.J. Willis, Brock Mathis, Braden Doughty Infielders (8): Josh Smith, Brandt Broussard, Hal Hughes, Saul Garza, Drew Bianco, Gavin Dugas, Chris Reid, Cade Beloso (although I wouldn't be surprised to see somebody get signed this summer and one ...

There might be somebody else we're not considering, you know. Jordan Loving could come out for baseball. This is a kid, after all, who hit three home runs in a game back in April. EDIT: Loving was all-state... [quote]He was one of the the most well-rounded athlete in the greater New Orleans...

He's now down to .366, as he's 15 of 41. But he's up to 11 RBI's, which leads that team (two other guys are tied with six), and he's stolen 10 of 12 bases in 13 games. So far Dugas looks like a big addition. He's a Josh Smith from the looks of it....

[quote]CPM also compared Can Sanders to Nola before the season. I think we are all excited to see what Stortz can do, but don't get too caught up in every word he says.[/quote] I get that, but it isn't just Mainieri who likes this kid. Storz was considered a potential first round pick before he g...

[quote]Is that what caused him to miss time his Senior year of high school as well?[/quote] That's what it sounds like. This thing has gone undiagnosed, or misdiagnosed, for a while, because he's had multiple MRI's that didn't pick it up. So I'm putting in my weekend rotation projection, at le...

Great Nick Storz news from Mainieri's press gaggle as well... - macaoidh
...namely that they finally found out what's wrong with Storz. He has a tear in one of his lats. It never showed up in the MRI and they couldn't figure out why he had pain, but they've finally diagnosed it.

re: Erik Tolman 2018 LHP - macaoidh
Friend of mine was at Mainieri's press gaggle earlier. He said the story is this guy's not a done deal because they still need to make sure they can make room for him under the 35-man limit, but that he's very good and they want him, and they think he would fill the need for a left-hander....

[link=(https://www.instagram.com/erik_tolman/)]Here's the Instagram page[/link] where he calls himself an LSU commitment. The question is whether he got a release, because he signed with Cal Poly back in November. ([link=(https://www.gopoly.com/sports/bsb/2017-18/releases/20171108n1pedn)]LINK[/li...

re: Erik Tolman 2018 LHP - macaoidh
Well, Project is busy but I've got some time. Here's the skinny on Tolman. He's a 6-2, 180-pound lefty out of El Toro High School in Lake Forest, California and a former Cal Poly commitment. This year as a senior Tolman was 6-0 with a 1.63 ERA. In 47.1 IP, he gave up 36 hits and 13 walks while...

re: LSU Baseball 2018 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread *New 2021 Commit 6/18* - macaoidh
Ditto for Levi Kelly at 249. But if you start trying to project an 18-pitcher roster out of the returning players and signees it's pretty damned hard to do without SOME of these kids getting drafted. The only concern now becomes left handed pitching. Seems like Cabrera is going to get some cha...

It has a ring of truth to it, because Marceaux definitely should not have gone undrafted through six rounds. The only way that happens is he didn't take the money when the call came....
