Please Christmas baby Jesus may we please have a really good team this year. It’s all I really want for Christmas.

Dear left-handed, five-tool baby Jesus...please let us make the postseason this season.

I’m guessing we do. This’ll probably be similar to DP’s first year. Hopefully he can pull a 2017 and turn a scrappy group of rag tags into a conference winning, CWS type team. Last time we finished last in conference, we did pretty well the next year so fingers crossed I guess

Anyone get scooters for Christmas?  Axing for a friend...

 

 

Bought them for my boys...they haven’t crashed.  Maybe I should give them some beer to recreate the most likely conditions.

A line item that says our first to worst nosedive last year was unprecedented in Texas history but now par for the course of an apathetic athletic department and fanbase that thinks Omaha & Hardware is the working title for a Builder's Square corporate comeback?  At least baseball writers know enough about their sport to not automatically write us into every pre-season poll only to watch us piss it away.  I think we're certainly better than we were last year, how can we not be?  But I think a top-half conference finish and road bid to a regional is about the best we can hope for until we get some more experience.  

That said, where the fuck are the game times?

They got big names too. 

Quote

Former major league third baseman and ex-White Sox manager Robin Ventura has resurfaced at Oklahoma State as a student assistant, per Kendall Rogers of D1baseball.com. The Cowboys’ staff now boasts him and fellow former big leaguer Matt Holliday, whose brother, Josh Holliday, manages the team. The 52-year-old Ventura hasn’t coached in the majors since the White Sox let him go after the 2016 season. Ventura’s name came up when the Mets were seeking a manager in 2017, but he reportedly didn’t have interest in the position.

I think Nolan Ryan has a ranch up that way, Robin.  So watch your melon, you fucking child.

We should hire Nolan now that he's unemployed and maybe they can go at it again.

Damn. That might look worse than De Niro beating that schmuck in Irishman.

Just as a public service message, single game Rice baseball tickets for the Texas series don't go on sale until Feb 3rd.  However, they offer a 3 game mini package that is on sale now along with their season tickets and you can make all three Texas games the mini package.

I was really looking forward to taking my oldest to this next week but I won't get back into town until around 5:00p.

Speaking of schedules, nothing on the main website but if any of y'all see any of our home gametimes posted on social media or whatever, would you put it here por favor?  thanks

Hamate injuries are quite common in baseball caused by high, compression forces during a swing (see below article).  CJ Hinojosa dealt with the same.   As McComas states,  full strength may take time.

  Though he brings power at the plate,    I am excited to see Duplantier pitch. 

 

https://www.beyondtheboxscore.com/2014/5/2/5672834/hamate-fractures-and-power-in-the-pitchfx-era

 

Hamate bone fractures are one of the more common upper extremity injuries seen in baseball, not only due to the abundance of occasional wayward pitches or foul tips striking a glancing blow to the area, but also due to where hitters position their hands on the bat, which can introduce repetitive, high compression forces on the bone during a swing, but in particular, during a checked swing. Along with the forces and motions mentioned, the hook-like protrusion of the bone—also called the hamulus or hook of hamate— and certain vascular features make the hamate (lettered 'H' in the image below) predisposed to injury.
