OMAHA–You know it’s been a good College World Series filled with exceptional performances when filling out an all-tournament ballot becomes an impossible chore. Ballots were distributed this evening in case Georgia wins tonight (if Fresno wins, these votes will be discarded and we’ll vote again tomorrow), and I find myself wishing we had an all-CWS first team and a second team. How can you choose between Gordon Beckham and Danny Muno? Dustin Ackley and Rich Poythress? Ryan Peisel and Tommy Mendonca? There is one DH slot, and I’d love to give it to Joey Lewis, but I’ve got to find a way to get both Peisel and Mendonca on this team, so Lewis is out.
Fresno State continues it’s eye-opening onslaught, sending 19 batters to the plate in the last two innings to build an 11-5 lead. The five-run fourth was highlighted by a two-run triple by Muno (seriously, how can he not be on the all-tournament team? But how can Beckham not be?). The outburst prompted a nice text message from John Manuel: "Man, Fresno is impresive. Good show for college baseball."
My sentiments, exactly.
