    An aside: Sammy Esposito lands gently as hitting coach/third base coach for Houston. See you next year, Sammy.

      Glad to hear it. As far as I can tell Sammy is a solid baseball guy.

      I'm just going to leave this here. Because I think it's important to keep in mind. And quite fun to peruse.

          Phil had 300 walks in his career. Could you imagine a player in our recent memory getting to 150 in a career?

          Phil was extremely disciplined at the plate no doubt about it. 65-85 games a season, with 10-15 of those often times against KCAC type foes (1980 for example 26 games against non D1 competition Hawaii-Hilo, Phillips, Minnesota-Morris, Augustana, NE Missouri, Benedictine, Kansas Newman, Friends, NW Oklahoma, Bethany, Kearney State and OKC). Not Dismissing Phil at all. I consider Phil a friend and he was the best hitter I ever saw but comparing stats playing 56 games with ones playing 10-25 more games, and basically no non D1 competition as compared with 1/3 of the schedule against non D1 just isn't apples to apples.

          Most of those WSU numbers are never being broken by anyone. Different era. But it is fun to look at. And it's not like it didn't translate well to the highest level at the time, either. Also, a walk for Phil was essentially a double, given the stolen base prowess.

          Joe spoke at Gene's HOF induction in December. Sounded great as always. So personable. I don't hear a lot from him, but I suspect that he'll be more involved in the coming months and years, as will many baseball alumni.

        you consider Phil a friend?
        you “don’t hear a lot from” Joe Carter?

          The man passes on information that he has first hand knowledge of and you have some off hand patronizing remark. Seems like you have a “little” envy going. I saw no where in his posts that he was buddies with Phil or Joe just personal comments unlike others that heard it from the wife’s third cousins best friends stylist.

            Wait... what did the wife's third cousin's best friend's stylist say??? ;-)

        • #98
          She agreed with the good doctor. But she did mention Joe needed a better haircut and style

            It's been a quiet week. I would think an announcement regarding an assistant coach is not too far off.

              As usual, you're thoughts are spot on.

                According to a source with knowledge of the situation, WSU baseball coach Eric Wedge is expected to hire outside of the Shocker family for the assistant/lead recruiter role. Former Shockers Mark Standiford, Kevin Hooper and PJ Forbes all interviewed. Expect an announcement soon.

                • Excited to hear who he is going with. I was personally pulling for a legacy hire, but I'm totally on board with whatever. Wedge is ultimately responsible, so he should be in charge of getting whomever he thinks is best fit to help him get the job done right.

                  • I think this is another hire that we will be excited about. I’m sure Coach wanted the best established D1 coach/recruiter he could find to bring onto an already really solid staff.

                    • People always have a very different meaning of 'soon' than I do.
