Is the thought that Jones is signing? Talked to a cali scout who thinks Halpin signs which fucked up my day.

Cleveland double dicking us by taking Tucker way early and paying him under slot so they could pay Halpin over slot ( @Horny Bull's theory) to convince him to sign is almost funny in how much it fucks us over.

I blame Matt Kata.

Flores actually plays for SA Brandeis, but I think he’s from the valley originally. Still, Aaron Nixon &  Viggo Lopez prove that Pierce has no problem recruiting down there. Starting to see more & more valley kids joining high profile travel teams, in all sports. It’s really helping them improve their games & get noticed.

Is Colton Rathjen projected to start? I was high school friends with his dad.

With the abbreviated draft, every team in the country is experiencing a massive roster crunch. We did not lose as many non seniors to the pros as we normally would've... So now Pierce has to have tough conversations and trim the roster. I suspect Fields was one of those cases

Good for Kam, perhaps a fresh start gets him going.

I'm digging what i've seen/read about Phil so far. Big frame 1B and natural hitter.

Yup. I wish Fields the best but he really struggled at Texas. Texas still has 21 arms left on the roster, including transfers and the '20 class, so there are probably going to be other guys advised to look around. 

The good news is with the 35 man roster cap being lifted for a  year you can carry a bigger roster. But I don't see Texas carrying more than 40 or so guys on the roster. 

Either way, the Fields news shouldn't be surprising at all. He only threw 5 innings last season in situations that weren't high leverage at all. He was recruited over. Even if there wasn't a roster crunch I'm betting he was gone.

We seem to be all in on turning the roster over. 

Not much roster turnover at all going into next season. 

They've only lost 2 starters in Elder and Ellis.

I haven't looked recently but he was a top 100 guy in several recruiting rankings at one point. So he's probably a MLB risk. 

But the only way you get guys like Witt, Duplantier, Madden and Faltine to campus is by taking the risk.

Hope so,  best of luck to Kam.     The skill is there,  perfecting is the key.

Should be noted he graduated (3 years) in May (Corporate Communications)
