Award Season

I take a break from NCAA Regional coverage to talk a little award selection. Michigan's Nate Recknagel is the only Big Ten representative among the final fifty candidates for the Golden Spikes Award.

The Golden Spikes Award, presented by USA Baseball, also has a new website. One of the features is that you can vote for your favorite amongst the candidates. I don't believe it's has bearing on anything, but Michigan fans can go stuff the ballot box nonetheless.

One player that got left off the Golden Spikes Award is Indiana's Josh Phegley. Phegley paced the Big Ten in both batting average and RBI. The good news for the Hoosiers' backstop is that he is amongst the semi-finalists for the Johnny Bench Award.

Reading this preview, and the Baseball Zealot's tournament wrap-up made me recall that you never posted a review of the new Fish, Brian, as you mentioned during the Big Ten opener. Any chance that you'll do that now? Did the tournament experience change your opinion in any way?

Brian said...

No, Chuck, the tournament did nothing to change my opinion of the new yard.

As soon as I recover from the fact somebody actually reads what I write, I'll try to remember to share my thoughts on the new Fish.

Considering its been 3 years that I've been reading this, I expect the thoughts around the time Ray Fisher is rebuilt again.

Dave at www.maizenbrew.com (Michigan) is supposed to be doing some q&a with www.seaofblue.com (Kentucky) sometime this week. I managed to draw a couple main page posts on his site under my non-google commenting name. He's a big baseball fan as well and is getting real excited about it. Good to see some non-revenue love in the Michigan blogosphere.

Yes, k, you've been around almost longer than I have. I'll try to say something specific about The Fish renovation before they contemplate adding on.

I've noted a few Blue bloggers and general fans joining in, as well. Even the local media has run a small feature on both the Big 10 tourney and the regional.

I'm happy to see college baseball get some attention. The key is to get these "revenue" folks to hang on year after year.

The funny thing is, I can't guess whether the opinion will be favorable or unfavorable.
