Baseball news and other links

Here is a good article on how NCAA schedule rules and the move to the ACC has impacted the BC baseball team.

I've had plenty of interviews and news leaks fall through on me while writing this blog. I try not to get into the nitty gritty details here because I don't think it makes for interesting reading. Someone should tell that to the Daily Gazette's Ken Schott. In my opinion he used his column to throw Beanpot hero Nick Petrecki under the bus for a missed interview. He passive aggressively lets Nick off the hook at the end for being a college student. Meanwhile this writer is getting haircuts and going bowling and chatting online. Tough life. Sounds like he is a college student. I've already given this more attention than it deserves, but why would this guy whine about a non-interview? Maybe instead of bowling he could have come up with another column idea.

Mass high school coaches selected future Eagle Nick Halloran for their Super 26 team.

Realfootball365 thinks Clemson's schedule sets up well and picks the Tigers to win the division.

2009 recruit Logan Heastie is saying good things about BC.

Wow, what a great article on Petrecki. I understand what Mr. Schott says he's trying to in outlining a difficult situation...for him, on his day off. But come on, it's the local paper and you're trying to make a guy look bad in front of his friends and family. It's obvious that he wasn't even really that invested in Petrecki because he didn't watch the game. And this is a guy who writes for When you hear about athletes and coaches who really dislike talking to the media, it's because of stunts like this.

Ken Schott deserves the "Bronx Cheer" or as we used to say in Boston - give him the rasberries!

Clemson is always chosen to win the Division, it seems. We'll see, we'll see!!!

Nick Halloran looks like a player to me!

Heastie looks like he has a good head on his shoulders - hope he enjoys his visit to Boston.

Any Blue-Chipper that simulataneously has the foresight/direction to covet and plan for his business degree in his college search is a prototypical BC player.

Heastie (WR) would be a great fit in terms of BC's "well-rounded" intangibles, not to mention Logan's pass happy attack.

Remember Rutger's Vallone being won over my Schiano's helicopter? What a difference some character makes.
