    “As much talent as college baseball has ever had.” Jim Schlossnagle likes his team, but so do most coaches.

    Omaha or bust?

    It certainly feels that way for Frog fans, and with six weeks of successful fall ball under their belts, the sentiment is echoed by the manager as well. “Our goal, as always, is the College World Series.”

    Off to a red-hot start and looking like they had a championship-caliber team in the spring, TCU Baseball’s season was ceremonially cut short in March amidst the Coronavirus pandemic. Set packing in surprising fashion, a roster loaded with seniors and MLB prospects found themselves home months earlier than planned, and a year that was supposed to end in Omaha just... ended.

  2. This shouldn't bother me as much as it does, but your job is to write. Don't make mistakes like this unless you really mean to say selflessness lives in the dugout.
     
  3. Ability to use and understand your native language used to be a must. Spellcheck is such a terrible crutch. It leads to dopey errors like the one above.

    Of course, I can also remember a time when Babbili would have kids do copy editing, playing Find the Error! Even then, we were not allowed to use the Startlegram because "it was too easy."
     
  4. The second paragraph has two errors (at a minimum). I quit reading after that. I’m sure it had some good points.
     
  5. Just my two cents, but give Melissa a little snack here. She moonlights as a reporter and who runs Frog O'War website and is about as big and enthusiastic Frog fan as there is.

    Plus she has worked her azz off to bring a lot of cool stories within our athletic department to our attention that nobody else woulda written. This is more or less a hobby for her and she usually does a helll of a job IMO.

  6. There are at least two errors alone in the use of the word ceremonially. I see capitalization issues, words missing important letters, syntax... You're right; it's a messy paragraph.
     
  7. Didn't realize that. I guess I don't pay enough attention, but I assumed something published on SB Nation was written by a professional. Pass granted.

  8. She may well be the most enthusiastic frog fan on earth but she can make her own damn snacks.

  9. Hoping they can pick up where they left off when the shutdown hit last season.
     
  10. “Ceremonially” was an interesting word choice.

  11. I thought we had a pretty good team last year until things went South. This year I expect them to be one of the best in the country. You don't often have this many seniors on a baseball team that are this talented.
     
  12. Forget seniors, some of them are almost senior citizens.
