It’s time for everyone to get their kids to start playing baseball—Troy Tulowitzki’s situation explains why

-Tulowitzki was released by the Blue Jays on Tuesday and is owed $38 million still from his contract, because all money of course is guaranteed in baseball. Can you imagine getting paid that much money NOT TO PLAY?!

-We’re a week away from the start of the early National Signing Period…what kind of action are we expecting over the next week?

-Do you think Adrian Martinez should legitimately be in the Heisman conversation going into his sophomore year as he currently is by some outlets?

-Is there a replacement for Tony Fair?

Is there a way to improve college football scheduling and improve intrigue and give Group of 5 teams a better chance at making the playoff?

-There was a great idea out there by someone named Andrew Elsass the other day that brought up the conversation that it seems dumb a lot to have games scheduled 12-15 years in advance for the non-conference portion of the schedule—his idea was to have a schedule release tv show (or something to that point) that would let teams essentially play 4 non-conference games against 4 different tiers of football (Tier 1 – Top 28 teams; Tier 2 – teams ranked 29 -56; etc.)

-How cool would it be to have no idea where you’re playing each year in non-conference games until 5 months before? Is that possible for travel purposes or too good to be true? It would give Group of 5 teams a chance to play a good Tier 1 team to help their resume when all is said and done….and that also might anger that same Tier 1 team. This isn’t a complete bulletproof idea

An average MLB player thinks he could strike out Babe Ruth every time if he played nowadays

-Free agent pitcher Adam Ottavino said the other day that when he was in Triple-A baseball, he had an argument with a coach about how effective Babe Ruth would be in current day with his swing, and he said he would perform poorly with lots of strikeouts. Who the hell does this guy think he is?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

-What happened with Tony Fair and Justin McGriff?

-Early Signing Period begins a week from today…how much action do you expect to see with commits before that? Expecting surprises that day or should pretty much have an idea of who is going to sign and come early?

-What percentage of the class do you think signs during the Early Period?
