He’s from Creighton...Omaha...@artvandalay and I stumbled upon some of his info at one of those funky store/museums in the Old Market area of Omaha....
Butler: "I want to hit"
Howard: .327 BA; 4 HR; 30 RBI; 37 R; 23 SB; 13 E
Howard has 13 errors?
And he's considered a solution for us in the infield?
I just had to repost this here since some of you may not check Swamp Gas regularly, sorry Mods.
Here's a different idea with the new logo. If our baseball team starts wearing the Jump Man logo we can claim its actually an Auburn player making a play at the wall and the ball is definitely out.
Ba Da Boom!
What happened to Blasucci?[/QUOTE]
Tommy John in December
from the jc thread: Most surprised about Schifflett and Baker. Thought they both had a chance for regular roles in 2019
ere's a recap of the comings and goings that have been discussed across several threads:
That is a lot of talent walking out the door.
Hold the phone. Hearing Baker may have had a change of heart and is coming back for his Junior year. Fingers crossed. Love the kid and his enthusiasm.
excellent, hope it works out that way....
Would be interesting to hear the background story on first leaving, then coming back.
Looks like he started to show some offensive life with the Mallards towards the end of the summer.
he is going to need to show something honestly. He will never see the field again if he does not. Unless it is in mop up roles for us
I always thought Baker had more potential as a hitter/fielder (outfield? He has good speed) than as a pitcher.
Then again, I am certainly not the Coach.
I love his enthusiasm, but he’s gonna have a hard time getting pt in the outfield unless Nelly’s shoulder is completely toast.
Baker's flashed some stuff from time to time on the mound - he's struck out 48 in 45 2/3 IP. Had control issues last year and was way too hittable as a freshman. But he's shown the beginnings of a strong fastball-slider combo.
Of course, lots and lots of unsuccessful pitchers have flashed some stuff, struck out a bunch of guys and shown the beginnings of a fastball-slider combo, so that's no guarantee of anything. But considering all we're losing on the mound, we can use as many talented arms as we can find to soak up innings.
Really hard for me to see him contributing with the bat, I have to say.
