    With Guscette leaving anybody else think we just got super thin at catcher?

    BT- likely gone even though would love to see him come back.

    Mac- gone

    Lastres- Had Tommy John

    Salvador Alvarez- will be true freshman

    Luke Heyman- big time catcher prospect. Chance doesn’t make it to campus. If he does he could play immediately.


    Seems like would have to add a Portal guy. My numbers say 2 catchers on roster with Lastres and Alvarez. If Heyman doesn’t sign that great but you still have 3 very young catchers with one that can’t throw for another 9 months.

    yep, why I included 'legally'. An independant contactor they can work/play where ever they choose.

    nba is funded(mostly) by China. Doubt they survive w/ just the miserable tv ratings in America. I know the difference, but if its only about where the money is coming from, which is worse?? lol

    Think Clemson is offering him immense cash…don’t think fsu will be able to match. Just my two cents.

    No question the Clemson offer will be bigger. Especially the base, pre extras.

    I'll be surprised if he chases a few extra bucks rather than 'going home'

    And I still dont think fSU pulls plug on Meat w/out being pretty sure they are getting him.

    For compasion. Meats base was 400K. Monte Lee at Clemson was *350K. Sr was at 700K when retired.

    I think Vitello is highest paid at 1.5 mill.. Guessing Clemson offers a mill per to Link.

    *Lee will be paid a base salary of $225,000, with supplemental income of $125,000 for a total annual compensation of $350,000.

    Transfer guys….wouldn’t they need to announce in next 2-3 weeks so as to get enrolled in a timely manner. I’d have to think transfer window is extremely tight. Can’t transfer in in July and August or at least wouldn’t think so.

    The transfer deadline is May 1st for Fall and Winter sports, July 1st for Spring sports. That is transferring without having to sit out a year.

    Thanks!!

    I’d expect we would hear something about White and other portal kids soon then. Hope to see us grab 3-4 potential immediate impact guys. 2 pitchers, a catcher, and a hitter.

    Somebody posted something about Riopelle coming back. If so, that’s huge. Big year and team improving could move him up into rounds that pay big money slot wise.

    I am shocked that he isn't getting more love by the pundits. He plays the position well, hits for average, hits for power and is really fast for a catcher. He wasn't 1st Team all SEC for nothing.

    Not saying he is of the level of Zunino, but he is solid.

    If he ends up drafted in later rounds I think we might see him in Orange and Blue next season. If I was a MLB general manager I might take a shot at a second or third round pick. He is a sleeper.

    Tired of waiting on this guy, think we should just go back to coastal carolina and grab a few more BT’s and call it good.

    What Notre Dame did was impressive.
    Top 2 pitchers came from Furman and Jacksonville. Pretty sure Sully has cast the transfer net wide. As Notre Dame has showed you don’t have to get your transfers from big schools.

    Let's hope he does. I've said it in the past, Link Jarrett is a great coach and even a better person. FSU is going to get a great one.
