In an earlier blog post today, John Manuel recapped a wild Tuesday in college baseball. I was on hand for some of Coastal Carolina’s big win at North Carolina, and I’ll have more on the impressive Chanticleers in Friday’s Weekend Preview. One side note: as I walked into USA Baseball’s National Training Center in Cary (temporary home of the Tar Heels), I was stopped by Jim Strasburg, whose son Stephen is San Diego State’s ace righthander and a strong early candidate to go No. 1 overall in the 2009 draft. Naturally, I was slightly befuddled: I was in San Diego last weekend and did not meet Mr. Strasburg, so I certainly wouldn’t have expected to meet him across the country in a game that does not feature the Aztecs. But he explained that he’s in the area on business, and he figured it would be nice to take in some college baseball while he’s out here. Now that’s our kind of guy.
To this week’s mailbag:
