The Morning Stake: June 13th

Rest in Peace Rip Griffin

Via the LAJ, West Texas icon Rip Griffin passed away on Wednesday at the age of 87. Griffin is from Lubbock, received his degree from Texas Tech and stayed here for his life where he supported so many different things. Truly a pioneer and someone who will be missed.

Texas Tech signee and pitcher Trevor Rogers was drafted by the Miami Marlins with the 13th overall pick in the MLB First Year Player Draft. That’s a huge deal and I’d guess that he won’t be on campus next year, but what a great honor. Here’s a bit of a scouting report on Rogers:

β€œHe’ll throw a slider and a curve, which will run together. He has trouble staying on top of his curve and will likely be better off sticking to the slider at the next level. His changeup is getting better and approaching average.”

I watch stuff like this and then I get sucked right back in and think that 8 wins isn’t going to be a problem. Not a problem at all.
