He’s 32 years old, is a starter ONLY because he’s on the Astros, and oozing veterany goodness is not an excuse to use to build a team around a guy, no matter HOW he fields. And yeah, he’s better than Angel Sanchez.

My GAWD I hate Ed Wade. He’s raving about Jordan Schafer (why?) and how the 2 mediocre AA pitchers we got are gonna be in the rotation next year (can’t wait for THAT, can you) and how Jonathan Singleton, the A ball first baseman is gonna be a middle of the order 30 homer a year guy next YEAR. He isn’t hitting anywheres NEAR what guys like Heyward and Trout did at that age and even THEY didn’t jump to the majors after A ball. Maybe he meant 2013. You note that the Phils refused to even discuss him or Cowart last year for OSWALT and now they OFFER them. Tells me what I needed to know.

Doesn’t mean that Wandy and the ol WB can’t be traded next month and I wouldn’t be surprised if Wandy is – like I said, there are a LOT of teams who want him. At least I still have someone to cheer for.

From mlbtraderumors.com, here’s a summary (thank you Tim Dierkes) of today’s tweets about Wandy.

2:37pm: Rodriguez is likely to stay with the Astros, tweets Morosi.  Jon Heyman points out that he’s a candidate for an August deal.

1:51pm: The Yankees’ talks for Rodriguez are officially dead, tweets Stark.  Jon Heyman says the Yankees wanted the Astros to pick up half his contract.  Nothing is close for now, but it looks like the Blue Jays or nothing for Wandy according to Stark.

I have been on vacation this past week and I am catching up on some of my reading when I came across this interesting article in the Saint Cloud Times. I am not sure why St. Cloud State President Earl H. Potter III is continuously making some of these statements, on one hand he said, that SCSU isn’t going to accept an invitation to the NCHC, a league that his school was never invited to join, and then he does a one 180 and said he would be willing to listen “if” the NCHC wanted to add SCSU. Now we have this. Now Potter is trying to talk down the NCHC, two years before they play their first game.

Mick Hatten; SCTIMES —- St. Cloud State President Earl H. Potter III has said that the university has looked at the numbers and win-loss records for teams in the newly formed National Collegiate Hockey Conference and for the Western Collegiate Hockey Association teams.

A 3 run job, too.

Can’t wait to see how it looks after the game is over and I can see the replay of the homer on mlb.com, seeing as how this game is not being broadcast.

Figures.

Alaska Nanooks men's ice hockeyImage via WikipediaIt would appear from the outside that this is the beginning of the process of seeing if the UA Fairbanks would be a good fit for the WCHA. Logically speaking, I believe that UAF would be a good fit for the WCHA because they could play their in state rivals the UAA Seawolves four times in one season.

FAIRBANKS — Bruce McLeod, the commissioner of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, is planning a visit to the University of Alaska Fairbanks next month.

McLeod’s visit to Interior Alaska is no guarantee that the Alaska Nanooks are going to join the same conference as their intrastate rivals, the Alaska Anchorage Seawolves. It is, though, an indication that UAF’s program, which is among 11 teams in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, is at least being considered for WCHA membership as NCAA Division I hockey is experiencing league changes that will take effect in the 2013-14 season.
