Sticking with my original pick of Florida, that team is flat out stacked (they could have as many as 5 players who could go in first 2 rounds next year). USC has a chance though, they just find a way to win. Hope it goes 3 games.

As much as I hate to admit, I agree with you, darko. I expect Florida to win if they play to their ability. They are completely loaded with talent. South Carolina has a great team, but Florida definitely has the more elite players. USC can only compete depth wise. Either way I'll be fine with the result. Winning the last CWS at Rosenblatt and defending the title in the CWS final at the new TD Ameritrade Park is great for our program. If we can only get Guerrieri to shun the Rays and go to school, we might be back here again next year...

Sophomore Christian Walker for South Carolina is done for the CWS with a fracture in his wrist. What a huge blow. He is our best hitter.

I can't believe Walker is playing. Everything I had heard up to game time was that he had broke a bone in his hand and wasn't going to be able to play. Gutty performances by him and JBJ to play through their injuries so far this CWS.

Great win tonight for the Gamecocks. This game came down to defense since the hitting and pinching were pretty much evenly matched. Florida ended up making two crucial errors that cost them the game, while South Carolina made 3-4 critical plays that kept the game alive.

I'm confident with Roth going tomorrow. We're not a lock to win, but Roth always puts us in a position to win. Should be a great game.

Only got to watch the game until Wingo's RBI single in the 8th that tied it at 1. The man's clutch. Koumas was good. The only Florida batter he walked ended up scoring. Same goes for Randall who was fantastic, walked 1 batter (Mooney) who scored on RBI single.

Advantage Gamecocks tommorow. They've got Roth starting while Florida is going with Karsten Whitson (Padres 2010 1st rounder who didnt sign). Whitson is a freshman. Then again so is Koumas and he kept Gamecocks in the game today.

Oh yeah and Walker is a beast.

Back to Back National Titles for South Carolina! Roth is a CWS legend at this point. This team is so clutch.

Dodgers 10th round draft pick Scott Wingo wins the MVP. Very deserving winner.

Roth gets the job done. Wingo is clutch. Congrats to Gamecocks, well deserved.

Also the last team to win at Rosenblatt and the first to win it in the new stadium (Ameritrade Park).

Gotta love that US pitching staff.

Nice to see Liam Hendriks make it.

What do you think of Hendriks?

Also, what's up with Montero this season?

Hoping Hendriks turns into middle of the rotation type of pitcher. Control pitcher, you wont find many with better control and he pitches to contact which makes him a perfect Twin lol. Pitched in Australian baseball league over the summer (your winter) and got a good look at him but didnt do well, got lit up abit but it was nice to just see him there. His team (Heat) won the whole thing. Luke Hughes also played for the same team. Cameron Lamb (Giants) is another minor leaguer on that squad. This is why (even as a Yankees fan) I could never hate Twins, they scout quite a bit over here. I'd take Hendriks over any Twins minor league pitcher not named Gibson (with Wimmers struggling) ... take that with a grain of salt coming from someone like me.


Montero started slow last year as well before being 1 of the hottest hitters in minors in 2nd half. Hopefully he gets going very soon. We may not see him up this year though.

Michael Choice should be in AA quite soon. Dude's been absolutely killing it in Stockton. Can't wait until he's up with the big club.

Desmond Jennings called up and doubles, triples and gets a steal.

Cleveland called up 2 of their best prospects in Kipnis and Chisenhall.

Jennings looking like he's good enough to stay in the MLB. With the Rays out of the race, it will be nice to see him as a regular for the rest of the season.

Matt Moore was promoted to AAA and has been very impressive so far, although I think it's only been two or three starts.

The Rays farm is looking great as usual.

He's looked lights out at AAA. Had an 8 inning/13K gem couple days ago. Moore will be up with Rays shortly, most likely in bullpen role just like David Price.
