For your viewing and information enjoyment, some changes in the blog. You’ll notice on the top navigation and under pages that a few pages have been added:

  • 2007-2008 schedule. Yes, the year is over, but when you want to look back and see how that Red Storm 11-19 record came about, how Lawrence was from game to game, and how Mason and Burrell were against various opponents, here is your resource, with links to boxscores. If you pause your mouse over each result, you’ll see a short comment from me.

2008-2009 Information

  • The main 2008-2009 section includes each anticipated St. John’s player for the coming year, including walk-ons and recruits, with their currently listed heights, weights, and home towns (though Jasiulionis is originally from Lithuania, and Coker is originally from Nigeria). If you want to read the East Coast Bias’ evaluation of each of the 2007-08 players, check each players links on the 07-08 main page.
  • The 2008-2009 St. John’s Red Storm schedule is not officially out, but we know the team has some out-of-conference obligations (Niagara, Miami (FL), Duke) and a slate of 18 conference games, with 6 being home-and-away games, and the other 12 scheduled based on this year’s game location. As we know more about the schedule, the page will be updated.

While you’re at it, check out Johnny Jungle’s updated Big East Links page, with official, unofficial, blog, and message board sites for each of the 16 Big East teams.

with a loss.

if tom gordon’s e.r.a. (135.00) was a bowling score, it’d be mediocre, a nice warmup game maybe, however, this is baseball and not bowling. so begins another season of reaching for the whiskey bottle everytime flash takes the mound.

Reasons to love Nyjer Morgan

Grabbed from the Sports Illustrated article.

– his name requires pronunciation reminders (NIGH-jer you funny punks), just so nobody says something damned offensive.

– somebody has to get at bats for the Pirates, and he’s a base stealer (fantasy skillz).

– he projects to be a defensive whiz, and made a hell of a catch last year:

Nyjer Morgan catch

– he calls centerfield “Morgantown.” What does he call his shaggin’ wagon? The Nyjermobile? How about his dog? The Morganfriend?

– he’s a black kid who played hockey– he’s a stereotype killer! That’s my man right there.

(and yes, I know this is the profile of Tike Redman. Base stealer, good fielder, can’t hit a double…)
