  1. ...and then 4 picks later, Janczak was selected by the Indians at #940 overall.
  2. Jacob Meador, our RHP commit from Burleson Centennial, was just selected by the Mariners in the 31st round, #936 overall.
  3. I'd heard Malcolm Kelly has been spending a good amount of energy trying to get Omar back to Fort Worth.
  4. Alex Isola was just selected by the Twins in the 29th round, #869 overall.
  5. Zach Humphreys was just selected by the Brewers in the 26th round, #793 overall.
  6. Watson selected by the A's. 15th round, #464 overall.
  7. They're back at it today. As of Pick #390 overall in the 13th round, no more Frogs or Frog commits have come off the board since Guenther.
  8. Our current 87: Travontae Hights A few memorable 87s: Stephen Shipley Jamie Dixon in his playing days, helping lead the Frogs to the 1987 SWC title October 29, 1987: Andrew Gregory Dalton is born ...and a few bonus 87s: OMG yes, put it straight into my veins Raising Arizona hit theaters on March 6, 1987
  9. Guenther was just selected by Tampa Bay in the 7th round, #218 overall. $200k slot money.
  10. Johnny Rizer is off the board, going with the 1st pick of the 7th round (#198 overall). $235k estimated slot money, although sometimes seniors get less than slot.
  11. Through the end of the 4th round, no more Frogs or Frog commits off the board. The main HS guys to keep an eye on are Riley Cornelio (RHP from Colorado), Kurtis Byrne (C from St. Louis) and Jacob Meador (RHP from Burleson). Cornelio was ranked 86th in the final pre-draft rankings. Being picked 86th would've brought with it $700k in slot bonus money. As of the current pick (#140, early 5th round), slot money is now under $400k. Obviously we'd like to hold on to many of our current juniors, too. Another year of Guenther, in particular, would be great.
  12. Ranthony Texada registered 4 tackles for Ottawa in his CFL preseason debut. If Denzel Johnson played, he did not show up in the box score.
  13. I mixed up my numbers earlier. Lodolo had actually turned down $1.75 million from the Pirates in 2016, not $1.57 million. So each of his seasons at TCU were "only" worth $1.23 million apiece.
  14. The projection for his slot was $5.43 million When you recall that he turned down $1.57 million when he was drafted by the Pirates at #41 overall in 2016, each of his three seasons at TCU were worth $1.29 million.
  15. Really would've liked to see the Alamo Bowl kick the Pac 12 to the curb and get either the Big Ten or SEC in there. Would've also loved to have seen the Sun Bowl get into the Big 12 mix.
  16. Our current 88: Artayvious Lynn A few memorable 88s: Jimmy Young Ranorris Ray James Maness Buddy Illes 2010: TCU 45, Baylor 10. GP's 88th win at TCU. Robert Griffin* called it a fluke, despite it not even being as close as the score. Good job, Big 12. ...and a few bonus 88s: The Playmaker/Winter Weather School Closure reporter Talk Radio hit theaters on December 21, 1988 - and must've been gone from them soon after. It made just $3.4 million on a $4 million budget, but I always liked it and it's set in Dallas. *THE THIRD!!!!! I know without that distinction, you weren't sure whether I was talking about him, his non-famous father or his non-famous grandfather.
  17. Brandon WIlliamson selected by the Mariners in the 2nd round, #59 overall. $1.19 million slot money.
  18. Priester goes #18 to the Pirates. Estimated $3.48 million signing bonus for that slot. He gone.
  19. ...now to see if he slides...
  20. Lodolo goes #7 to the Reds Frogs handed L's to several top picks, including: -Andrew Vaughn, Cal (#3 to the White Sox) -JJ Bleday, Vanderbilt (#4 to the Padres) -Josh Jung, Tech (#8 to the Rangers) -Shea Langoliers, Baylor (#9 to the Braves) -Alek Manoah, West Virginia (#11 to the Blue Jays)
  21. Our current 89 is a walk-on from Dallas named Hayden Fox. GoFrogs.com doesn't have a photo of him with the official roster, so I did a quick Google Images search: A few memorable 89s: Kyle Clifton Vincent Pryor O'Day Williams LT had an 89-yard TD run against UTEP in 2000, as part of a "disappointing" 305 yard day after having set the NCAA single-game record with 406 against the Miners in '99 -No photo that I could find, but Jimmy Oliver had an 89-yard TD reception from Max Knake in the win over Tech in 1994. ...and a few bonus 89s: August 23, 1989: Nolan Ryan's 5,000th strikeout November 9, 1989: The Berlin Wall starts to come down
  22. -Arrieta gave up 5 runs and 10 hits in 5 IP last time out, against the Dodgers in LA, to drop to 5-5 on the year. His ERA ticked up to 3.96. Next scheduled start is Wednesday afternoon against the Padres in San Diego. -Cashner gave up 6 runs in 5 IP last time out...but got the W against the Giants. He's now 6-2 on the year with a 5.04 ERA. Next scheduled start is Thursday evening against the Rangers out at The Temple. -Carpenter has a three-game hit streak going for the Cardinals, including a walk-off home run over the weekend against the Cubs. He's hitting .220 for the year with 8 HR and 20 RBI. -Holaday hit his first home run of the season over the weekend out in San Diego. In 4 games since the Marlins called him up, he's 1-for-9 with that 2-run HR. -Cron, who must be dizzy from the Diamondbacks' inability to make up their minds on him, is 4-for-14 (.286) in 9 big league games. All four of those hits are doubles. -Crichton is scoreless through his first 4 relief appearances for the D'Backs, with 3 K's, 1 hit and 0 BB across 2.2 total IP.
  23. Our current 90: Ross Blacklock A few memorable 90s: Terrell Lathan Jared Kessler KaVontae Turpin's 90-yard punt return TD against Kansas in 2017 And a bonus 90: June 11, 1990: Nolan Ryan's 6th career no-hitter
  24. Our current 91: Shameik Blackshear A few memorable 91s: LJ Collier - Kent Trammell ...and a bonus 91: May 1, 1991: Nolan Ryan's 7th career no-hitter
  25. Our current 92: Benedict Brafi A few memorable 92s: Chad McCarty Ray Burns November 7, 1992: Back when beating UT was still a big deal Deante Gray's 92-yard TD reception from Boykin against Tech in 2014 Michael Reeder hit 92% of his FG attempts in 1995 ...and a few bonus 92s: My man, DeShawn Stevenson
