Big 12 Weekend Preview (5/6-5/8)

With only a few weeks left until the postseason starts, the Big 12 features three conference series, two out-of-conference series, and a pair of teams taking the weekend off.

Texas travels north to take on Nebraska for the final time as conference opponents. The Longhorns took a pair from the Sooners last weekend, giving them an important boost in the standings, and setting up a possible winner-take-all showdown against Texas A&M to close out the regular season. Taylor Jungmann is one of the best overall players in the nation, and Cole Green has steadied after a rough start. The Longhorns are still looking for a third starter to pick up the slack. The player to watch is SS Brandon Loy. Loy has always had an excellent glove and arm, and has found his stroke this season. Continue reading

Ten Minutes With Capital One Cup’s Robin Ventura

As the record holder of the longest hitting streak in college baseball history (58 games, held for nearly 24 years and counting) and a member of the College Baseball Hall of Fame’s first class, former Oklahoma State Cowboy Robin Ventura has always been heavily involved in college baseball. This season, Ventura is even more heavily entrenched, adding his work as the baseball ambassador for the inaugural Capital One Cup to his plate. The Capital One Cup honors the country’s top men’s and women’s collegiate programs across 13 different sports, honoring the winning schools with $200,000, money earmarked for athletes looking to go on to graduate school.

Ventura took a few minutes on Tuesday to check in with College Baseball Daily and give his thoughts on the season so far: Continue reading

College Baseball Daily Midseason All-Big 12 Team

Roughly one half of the way through the season, and there are a few players starting to distance themselves from the pack already. We compiled a list of the best players at their respective positions, and surprisingly discovered that only four players were on our Preseason All-Big 12 team. The midseason team features a pair of freshmen (David Paiz and Corey Knebel) and three transfers (Zach Johnson, Kelby Tomlinson, and Evan Mistich) among the returning veterans. Continue reading

Big 12 Weekend Preview (4/1-4/3)

As we enter the third weekend of Big 12 play, some teams are playing as expected, while other teams have stumbled out of the gate. Texas A&M has bolted out of the gate, defeating Oklahoma in the opening weekend, then shutting down the Jayhawks in week two, giving up only three unearned runs all weekend. Texas is tied for second in the league, getting by on their strong pitching, while battling to overcome a weak offense. Dan Spencer has his Texas Tech squad in a good position, tied with the Longhorns for second place. The Red Raiders are the opposite of Texas, a potent offense with a question mark on the mound.

CBD Quick Hits for March 25th

Here are some of our thoughts from the games played on March 25th.

  • The big showdown in the ACC this weekend is between the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and the Miami Hurricanes. The Yellow Jackets got the worst start of the season from Mark Pope which is saying alot as he entered the weekend with a 5-0 record and a 5-0 record and a 0.23 ERA. He ended up giving up three runs (two earned) while working seven innings walking a batters and striking out nine. The Hurricanes returned back to being the “Bad News Bears” though as they committed six team errors including Harold Martinez committing two at shortstop in his first start of the season at that position.

Big 12 Weekend Preview (3/24-3/26)

The Big 12 kicks off their second week of conference play today with a five-series slate. Making their conference debuts, Missouri hosts #8 Oklahoma, while Nebraska travels to Lubbock, Texas to take on Texas Tech.

Week one didn’t go as expected. Texas jumped into first place after a sweep of a solid Kansas State team, while favorite Oklahoma scored only four runs in a series loss to Texas A&M in Norman. Texas Tech and Baylor put on quite a display of offense in Waco. Texas Tech overcame large deficits in the final two games, including a 10-6 victory to seal the series on Sunday. Kansas was the surprise, taking a pair of games from Oklahoma State in Stillwater. Continue reading
