Tough losses on Friday and Saturday, and looks like another tight one today. We need t one of these.

Lost 4-3 yesterday after being up most of the game. Losing 5-3 in the 8th right now.

At least we seem to be much more competitive this year. Last year's 25-2 games were just sad.

There were apparently some unearned runs that lead to Charlotte winning.

We should try to get MidloDad to post some analysis over here.

They are playing at the Hickory Crawdad stadium. I guess they are just meeting in the middle to play.

As much as we like to rip on the AD on here, whoever runs that Wake baseball twitter account does a good job

The Mets acquired first baseman Allan Dykstra from the Padres for righty Eddie Kunz in a swap of former first-round picks, tweets Darren Smith of XX 1090.

Dykstra, 24 in May, hit .241/.372/.438 in 469 plate appearances at High-A last year. He was drafted 23rd overall by the Padres in '08. Two years ago, Baseball America ranked him eighth among Padres prospects, praising his "plus-plus raw power and plate discipline" while expressing concern about a hip ailment and his lack of athleticism. Dykstra did not crack BA's top 30 Padres prospects '10 or '11.

Great win last night. A win today would be huge in helping our ACC Tournament chances.

Kind of random, but I was listen to DC sports talk radio this morning and they had Cal Ripken on the show. They asked about his son, a HS 1B, and he said he was pretty much set to come to Wake before a last minute change to South Carolina. I'm not sure if they offered late or he just decided to visit late, but it would have been cool to have Cal at our games. He was very complimentary of Wake, calling it a great academic school with a protective environment that any parent would love, but South Carolina had just won the NCAA Championship and they had a great program.

He'll never play there, and wouldn't have played here. Name is doing a lot for him.

Our 2012 class... PG had it ranked as high as 26th overall, apparently. Doesn't look like there are many studs here. A couple guys ranked in the 200-250 range, and another 1 or 2 in the top 500.

I might be showing my ignorance here but 26th is pretty good isn't it? Isn't it likely that any studs we signed we would have to worry about the MLB draft?

That was its highest ranking. It doesn't look like any of the guys we signed are high on draft radars right now. Granted, they still have senior seasons to play.

It should be noted that only one of our 2011 recruits was drafted (by the Red Sox as a 44th rounder; he didn't sign, and is coming to Wake).

Interesting. I heard the same interview this morning, and Cal made it sound like his son got overlooked in recruiting because he had mono. Who knows, and not that important other than I was thinking it would have been nice to have a high roller around the program a la John Grisham's kid at UVA a few years ago.

Everyone I've talked to says he's not good, and I've seen him and agree. South Carolina probably just took him to get some money from Cal.

Grisham built a field at his high school that is amazing. He even has these shade things that swing around to block out the sun. Howie Long's kid went there too. They were pretty good.

St Anne's Belfield.

All of Howies kids went there. One went to play baseball at FSU but was kicked off the team. Got popped for a DUI after driving the wrong way down a one way street.

He is now considering going back to FSU. I'm not sure he's even playing baseball anymore though.
