    Not the first -- but might be the first for the new staff.
    “The rebellion on the populist right against the results of the 2020 election was partly a cynical, knowing effort by political operators and their hype men in the media to steal an election or at least get rich trying. But it was also the tragic consequence of the informational malnourishment so badly afflicting the nation. ... Americans gorge themselves daily on empty informational calories, indulging their sugar fixes of self-affirming half-truths and even outright lies.'

            Regarding Aiden May.

            Haven't had many kids out of New Mexico.

            Here's a 1 pitch video: https://fivetool.org/pocket-radar-fi...une-30-90-mph/

            This was this past summer. He has 2 more high schools years to develop. Max Preps had him listed at 6-0, 165 but who knows what he will be in 2 years.

              Pitching in the upper 80s and even hitting 90 before his junior year is hopefully a sign he'll be at least in the low 90s by the time he arrives on campus. If he can control it, even better!

                Shocks with a verbal from Will Stark, a middle infielder from Katy TX

                  Not finding much info on Will Stark. Perfect Game lists him as a 5-11, 172 lb second baseman who throw R and bats L. With two more years of high school ball in front of him there's good chance he check in at WSU a little bigger and stronger.

                      Shockers get a '21 verbal from Alex Birge, a 6-0 190 catcher and corner infielder from Olathe West. Started his high school career at Eudora.

                      Also starts at QB and strong safety for Olathe West football.

                            Booga gets a 10 on the Perfect Game best names list.

                            Hopefully, the Shocks will be able to get him a hat that fits.
