Yeah, BYU whooped up on Utah! 14-3 final score! My boss is taking notice of BYU baseball and even watched part of the game last night! I like this from our coach:
"We don't understate the fact that Utah is a big game for us," Littlewood said. "We're not afraid to say this is a huge game, maybe the biggest one on the schedule, and we have to win this game because that's the way we feel. Maybe if we shy away from it, then we don't have as much emotion."

So who do you all think will get drafted off this team?

I think for sure
Rucker
Shaver
Lund

Anyone else?

Who is eligible? Do they have to be a junior or a certain age? I don't remember the rules. The coach said that he think Rucker will be gone.

BYU's bats have abandoned them. Their pitching was never that strong and now the bats aren't compensating. BYU baseball is returning to the lowly level at which they usually perform.

This post may have been a bit premature. I was watching the game and something told me not to give up on them, even after they fell behind 4-0 in the 9th inning. Watching the 5-run 9th was the most fun I've had watching Cougar Sports in a while. Never say die!

Big win. We have the tie breaker on them now and are in first place in the standings?

Players can be drafted right out of HS. For players who choose to go to college the MLB then has to wait two years before they are again eligible to be drafted. So basically, anyone who just finished their sophomore year or older can be drafted. A lot of times sophomores will choose to stay in school. Juniors usually go because they lose a lot of leverage in their contract negotiations if they wait until they're a senior.

I thought it was three years in college if you were drafted out of HS but decided to go to college.

I believe that rule is only for the NFL.
