    Here is a link to an article written by Jeff Metcalfe at azcentral which talks about the departure of players from the ASU baseball team. This is an addition to Ronin's post above.

    This season has been especially disappointing.

    ASU baseball coach Tracy Smith has four years left on his contract

    It's been a very disappointing season. :(

    I was excited about the hiring of the new coach, so hopefully they can finish strong this season and build on it next year.

    I can't help but wonder about the head coach but I am far away from the program. Hopefully this season is just a bump in the road.

    Will Smith last much longer? I can't understand why ASU has fallen to this point. They should be killing recruiting and Smith led IU no back to back CWS so we know he can coach...I just don't get it.

    My understanding is that Smith lacks regional connections for recruiting. Maybe towards the end of his contract he'll have them but that's a long time to wait. I'm with the crowd that thinks Murphy should be the coach.

    Do you mean that he should still be the coach or that they should bring him back?

    Bet he is happy as a bench coach for Milwaukee.

    Both! Not that I think that #2 will happen. I'm sad about ASU baseball.

    Smith has recruited well, at least according to internet rankings (5th on Perfect Game last year) but all these sudden dismissals are just weird.

    It's looking more and more like that 11-7 scrimmage "loss" to JUCO CAC this past fall was more of predictor of things to come than a wait and see what unfolds.

    Welcome to the board!

    Pretty cool that your first post is on ASU baseball. :)
