Unusual Opportunity for Astros Fantasy

So I generally have at least 3 fantasy teams per year. Two are your traditional fantasy games, head-to-head and rotisserie with well thought out draft rankings. The third is generally reserved for...

Baseball Receives Major Gift for New Ballpark

Minnesota has received a sizable donation that will allow them to completely renovate Siebert Field, returning baseball to campus (and outdoors). This is a huge commitment and will be a great recruiting tool for baseball, a sport Minnesota has historically been very good in.

Q&A with Seth Rosin, RHP, Minnesota (2010 Draft)

Baseball Beginnings does a pretty solid job of covering a lot of prospects. They recently sat down with Minnesota's Seth Rosin. The Q&A also has a link to his scouting report that graded him out to a "mild prospect."

Are Sportswriters Really Necessary?

In my keeping up with Michigan baseball, I found that our finale against Iowa made it into Business Week magazine. Apparently, scientists at jNWU have developed robots that take in all the stats and pump out perfectly spelled newspaper articles. SKYNET is certain to follow!

Baseball: Iowa Preview

Iowa baseball takes on Michigan this weekend. They have a good chance of taking a game, maybe two if they grab the momentum in game one of a double header Friday. With rain predicted Saturday and Sunday, chance at a sweep if everything works in their favor. That said, Michigan is pretty good this year and Iowa's bullpen and hitters aren't what many would call good.

Iowa Baseball Beats Ranked Kansas

Sure, Kansas is just at the bottom of the polls, but for a program like Iowa's (think the basketball team this year, but over a 20 year period) this is very encouraging. The best news is it wasn't even a Hippen (one of the most underrated aces in the Big Ten). I think the Hawkeyes have a good shot to make the Big Ten Tourney this season, and this is just one step towards that goal.

This is how I feel about football season. This is also a perfect metaphor for the Michigan season.
