    In that same light, any kid that thinks he can hit will surely think he has a starting position on this team if he chooses to become a Cajun.

    Recruiting for hitters should be way, way up.

    Brilliantly positive.

    Your weakness can be your strength.

I remind people once again that at least three games with multi run ninth inning leads were blown due to not having Stoelke. He may be the key guy going forward.
    Assuming you're top seed in West and get byes. How many games you gotta sweep to win? I'm very doubtful we can win four games.

    I can speak 1st hand on some elements of baseball recruiting. UL baseball has a large number of commitments for 2018 already signed & most importantly next year's 2019 HS grads is a very large group, I've seen the list of commits and it is quite impressive....these 2019 guys can sign in Dec.

    .........plus there are a few early HS commits from 2020 and even one from 2021. Other than LSU, only UL in Louisiana is getting early commits from prominent HS players.

    Pretty sure we're going to need exceptional freshman hitters to be much better on offense.

    Top 6 teams get a bye. 7 plays 10 in a one game playoff with the winner getting the No. 2 seed. 8 plays 9 in a one game playoff with the winner getting the 1 seed. Regardless if you are 1 through 6, you are in the same boat. Advantage of 1 and 2 is playing a team that may have used up pitchers and likely threw their best already. It may be doubtful we can win four games in the tournament. However at this point it is our best bet for a regional bid.

    Early signing period for all sports but football is one week in mid November.

    The stadium is the bomb. If you watch a lot of college baseball on TV you see how much of the bomb it really is.

    The JC arms have not pitched well from the last stats I recently looked at, although that doesn't mean any of them won't be drafted. But it is highly unlikely that any of them get drafted in the top 12 rounds according to the recent college draft reports.

    I don't know anything about the recent JC commits, so I will wait to hear those announced. But overall, there on a few early signees to be concerned about with the MLB Draft.

    Me too but we weren't being recruited to play.

    For a recruiter the upcoming stadium could be anything the recruit could desire. Salesmanship.

    Non of this truth implies the reality won't deal huge rewards.
