From Bailey–Brayton Field on the campus of Washington State University, I watch the Cougars play Gonzaga. I wonder why college baseball hasn’t caught on. Plus I wonder about a “What if?” concerning WSU alum John Olerud.
It is a school spirit Episode 903 of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.
Mookie Betts, Jorge Soler, Jake Odrizzi, Jacob deGrom, Chris Heston, Brandon Phillips and Nelson Cruz all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball?
Ryan Westmoreland seemed like he had the commuter lane to being the next legend of Fenway Park. He’s a 5 tool hitter who also happens to be a native New Englander who was destined to be a left handed terror going into the new decade.
But a cavernous malformation of the brain has put that on hold… for the time being.
Now let’s all hope that Ryan makes in through fine.
Whether you play another game of baseball or not, I think I speak for all fans when I say get through this Ryan. We’re all rooting for you.
(Not for nothing, John Olerud had brain surgery when he was in college and he went on to win a batting title, play 16+ seasons in the bigs, get two World Series rings and have one of the sweetest left handed swings in the game. But first thing is first… get better, man.)
