    Dayton told me that he really struggled with the decision to leave. But he got what he wanted from the Blue Jays, who will pay for the rest of college.

    Well you can't fault him for that. Best of luck to Dayton. Proud to see a former Rebel going pro!

    Well that's great to hear, now it's time for Thad Griffen to step up into daytons role from this yr as a long relief/closer. I think he can do what Dayton did if he stays healthy.

  8. Default Marze Leaves Cajuns for Toronto Blue Jays

    A key piece of the Ragin' Cajuns pitching staff next season is going to be missing as Dayton Marze was drafted in the 14th round of the MLB draft last week by the Toronto Blue Jays.

    Marze is leaving UL and signing with the Blue Jays. He's headed out of town tomorrow to Florida where he'll undergo physicals. He'll then be placed in either rookie ball or with a short season team in New York. As a redshirt sophomore, the former Teurlings Rebel was five and four with two saves for the Cajuns this past season.

    With Satriano likely becoming a starter next year and Marze going pro, Griffen should have every opportunity to be the closer in 2011.

    Griffen has the grit and stuff that you need in a closer. He's a throwback player and brings an attitude to the field. Not enough guys like that out there anymore.


  10. Default Marze leaves UL for minor leagues


      Dayton Marze kept his options open after getting drafted last week in the 14th round by the Toronto Blue Jays.

    Marze had two choices: He could sign with the Blue Jays and begin his pro career or return to UL for his final two years of college eligibility.

    In the end, Toronto made the athletic right-hander an offer he could not refuse.

    Ovens needs to pass 12 hours this summer to graduate. He has some work to do before he officially becomes a Ragin Cajun.

    My last post had part of a story I wrote in February about Ovens. My most recent blog now has the entire story.

    Here is the blog link again:

    If he ends up also playing football, that would free up his scholarship money for another baseball player. The NCAA dictates that any multi-sport student-athlete that plays football must be on a football scholarship (once he plays in an actual game).


  17. Default Marze Signs With Toronto, Headed to Auburn


    Former Louisiana relief pitcher Dayton Marze signed with the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday and received his assignment to the club's short-season Class A affiliate Auburn (N.Y.) Doubledays of the New York-Penn league.


  18. Default Marze playing minor league ball for Toronto


      After a stellar career at Teurlings Catholic High School and two solid years with the Ragin' Cajuns of the University of Louisiana, Dayton Marze found himself with a decision to make.

    After leading all Cajun relievers with five wins during the 2010 season, Marze was drafted in the 14th round of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays with the 426th pick.

    So Marze was faced with the decision of returning to UL or signing with the Blue Jays. In the end, the offer to play for the Blue Jays was just too good to pass up, so he inked a deal with Toronto and headed to the minors.

    Although financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed, the Blue Jays will pay for the rest of Marze's education.
