Baseball Roster

Discussion in 'Scott Nix Frog Fan Forum' started by FrogPreacher, Oct 12, 2018.

  1. I was looking at the baseball roster and there are only 20 players listed.
    Of those 20 only 8 are position players. Is this truly the whole team?
     
  2. I don't think they have added the freshmen or transfers yet.

  3. You only need 8 position players. Seems about right.
     
  4. I heard around 20 new players this year and a transfer starting Sunday pitcher. It will go Janseck(sp?), Lodolo, then on Sunday this transfer.
     
  5. I will be remarkably pleasantly surprised if JJ is our Friday starter. I will be somewhat surprised if he is a starter in the traditional since. I don’t know anything about his situation and have heard nothing but just my thoughts.
     
  6. I recently looked at baseball recruiting and we were not even on the radar of the top 25. It seems like we have had near top 10 recruiting classes each year for the last 3-4 years, and now we’ve just dropped off. Does anyone know: (a) if I’m way off base here, and (b) if I’m not wrong, what is going on?
     
  7. MLB draft has hit the Frogs hard the last two years....especially this past year.... most of those rankings don’t take into account Junior College players I believe

  8. I don’t think they ever publicize the roster until after fall practice since CJS always has to make cuts at the end of October

  10. The transfer is hurt so that’s gonna be a wait and see deal.
     
  11. The roster is never updated until spring.

    Others have touched on it already but I’ll just reenforce here that the 2018 class lost it’s 4 best guys to the early rounds of the draft and was also a small group. Just like with football the bigger classes get higher rankings. TCU brought in 7 HS kids while pretty much everyone in front of us was in the mid teens or higher. Of the kids we did get I think Porter Brown will be a good player and Marcelo Perez should make an impact on the mound at some point. I think we signed 7 (or more) JUCO guys as well and they don’t impact the rankings that have been linked in this thread.

  13. Moose - assume we are hoping for a bigger impact from JUCO players this year than most?

    Sounds like we got a good group of them this year
     
  14. Wow. So we’re number 4 for 2019. That’s great. I guess I saw something flawed. Thanks.

    Edit: I just looked it again. We fell outside the top 25 for 2018, and y’all explained that. If we’re top 10 again for 2019 then there’s no cause for alarm.
     
  15. MLB took our best recruits, so it’s a very down year. It’ll be a rebuilding type of year in baseball like football.
     
  16. Who is the transfer?
     
  17. LHP Williamson
     
  18. Rebuilding from not making the NCAA tournament?

  19. I don't really think bringing in more JUCO guys than can all play at one time is rebuilding - if they can't contribute immediately, then they won't be here long enough to be part of "rebuilding" - its either win now or we are just trying to avoid being terrible
     
  20. However you want to spin it, don’t expect better than last year.
