John Manuel of Baseball America answers my Tyler Beede Question


Andrew VU '04 (Baton Rouge, LA): With his recent spate of bad starts, how far has Tyler Beede's draft stock fallen? Or are MLB evaluators focusing largely on his arm talent and viewing this as a blip on the radar? John Manuel: We do hear Beede was probably a shade high at No. 6 in our Midseason Update. He seems to be in a bad groove right now; when he throws strikes, he gets hit, or he has one of those 5-walk outings. His command lags behind his control. The pitch that has really caught scouts’ attention is the improvement in his changeup, but it feels like he’s more of a 6-10 pick overall rather than a threat to go in the first five selections. I don’t believe he’ll fall into the second half, barring injury, just because there is so much to work with there.



3. Matthew Fisher-Davis -- Fisher-Davis emerged late last July at the Peach State Classic in Augusta (Ga.). Since then he'™s grown to 6-foot-6. Fisher-Davis shot 49-percent from three and 97-percent from the free throw line during his senior season. He has a very quick release; impressive range is a good mid-range shooter as well. Fisher-Davis will play his college career at Vanderbilt.

UT basketball coach finds 30,000 reasons to leave town


Schadenfreude Tuesdays present: a coach decamping to another program off the back of a Sweet 16 run WHO ISN'T EDDIE FOGLER. Well, if that ain't a show, I'll kiss your ass.

Stallings isn't going anywhere... and neither is Kedren.


Props to Lockridge for his continued service to Vandy fans. Highlights of the story: Basketball fans rejoice - Kedren Johnson is "on schedule to be readmitted this fall," and he'll step onto campus with a full 2 years of eligibility remaining. I repeat, that is a full 2 more seasons of BOSYM to look forward to. Stallings detractors, gnash your teeth - he plans to stick around until at least 2019, the year in which his daughter will graduate from high school. However, Stallings mentions that he doesn't see an end in sight. The 53-year-old Stallings stated that he once couldn't see himself coaching at 60, but that is no longer the case. On a less positive note, there's no indication that Henderson will get any sort of special dispensation for a second medical redshirt. Tough break with all of the injury luck he's had. Hendo's been accepted to grad school and may get full medical clearance in September.



Oh, and the NCAA's lead investigator on Bruce Pearl's case is, get this, working in the Auburn compliance office.

Darreon Herring's 2013 Highlights


It's not often I get unsigned emails from random 404 phone numbers, but when they have a link to the next great Vanderbilt linebacker's best plays of 2013, they go up on the site. Soundtrack is NSFW.

Franklin and Penn State looking into playing Vanderbilt


The Harrisburg Patriot-News is reporting that James Frankin is kicking around the idea of scheduling a game with Vanderbilt at Beaver Stadium. What's interesting to me is that it doesn't mention a Penn State return trip to Nashville. Do you think that Vanderbilt would agree to a visit to Penn State without a return visit by the Nittany Lions?
