    Devils swept Boston College over the last weekend, and squeaked by NMSU in 10. Let me just say the umpiring of that game sucked like [insert simile]. Balking home a run in the 9th for the Aggies? WTF?

    Y'all should go out and see the games. The stands aren't crowded, it's relaxed, no snowbirds. But bring a sweatshirt for sure!

    And the Tork walk parade continues ad neauseam. I believe he leads in the NCAA in both total walks and intentional walks, and is going to break Bob Horner's school record by the end of this weekend when Nebraska comes to town.People in Detroit are already talking about making Tork the #1 pick in the draft. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/s...t-hitter-generational-type-player/4850662002/

    Amazing that the Arizona schools let Nick Gonzales get away

    ASU smoked the Huskers like cheap weed last night, with a load of their fans there. In 5 plate appearances, Tork recorded only 1 AB (SO), 3 walks, 2 runs, and an RBI on a HBP. I think Workman was the only guy who recorded a full game's worth of at-bats, because Nebraska couldn't hit the broad side of a barn door. They basically put all the freshmen in for the 8th and 9th, the score, 31-5, wasn't nearly that close.

    In yesteryear Sun Devil baseball teams could come close to that score. They used to feed off Eastern teams like Michigan coming out West.

    Still winning 13-5, I will take it.

    Arizona State (10-4) beats Cal State Fullerton twice on the road 12-2 and 9-3.

    Although Fullerton may be down a bit, nevertheless impressive.

    Just that stumble right out of the gate the first weekend. Ever since, things are clicking even with Torkelson getting walked at a stunning rate. The last two weekends of Match they are playing OSU and Stanford... that will be a good measuring stick.

    Turns out that Stanford and OSU are having down years right now so maybe those two series aren't nearly as daunting as expected.

    Series sweep of Fresno St. over the weekend. Not a bad team there in Fresno. Their guy Presno (I know, Presno from Fresno) is tied with Torkelson for 5th in HRs...The kid Gonzalez from NMSU is way far out front with 18.

    ASU-UA game postponed until the 17th. The upcoming weekend series is with Utah. I hear they start serving tacos on Tuesday during the Pac-12 games...tacos and St. Patrick's Day! w00t!

    Auburn's Conor Davis reportedly heading to Tempe. He will have one year of eligibility remaining.
