  1. It's a GOOD thing the SEC Network didn't show that game when Kjerstad tore the wings off of a butterfly, pushed a little old lady and spat on the ump! That Heston is a BAD dude. Martin on the other hand....Nobel Prize.
  2. Born in Arkansas, raised in Maryland - lifelong and passionate fan of both the Hogs and O's. I'll admit my homerism took over when the O's picked Kjerstad #2. I've seen Kjerstad play on the SEC Network probably 30-40 times during his 2+ years in Fayetteville. Really really liked him Freshman year, fell off a bit Sophomore and started making great progress as a Junior. Nice fluid swing built for OPACY, underrated defense, intense but not a jerk, seems to be a great teammate. Taught by the best of the best in Van Horn and Arkansas' incredible coaching staff. Absolutely inane for folks to compare him to Trumbo or Chris Davis....that's just simple bulletin board knee jerk trolling. As for Roll Tide, don't worry about him. He's just salty our football Hogs pushed his Crimson Tide to the limit and only lost 48-7 last year :) He'll hope for the best for Martin and worst for Kjerstad and that's just dandy. At least we got baseball, basketball is quickly turning around and maybe we might have something in Pittman. Go Kjerstad! Go Hogs! Go O's! WPS.
  3. There are many athletes who are now seeking to use their "platform" to advocate for whatever. Sports should be a relief, a pastime and entertainment. When the players (i.e. entertainers) interrupt their profession and use their platform for "cause XYZ" then it becomes an even greater annoyance. Yep, I've been making it just fine without sports.
  4. Kjerstad has a slow power bat? Exactly how many games have you seen of him?
  5. From the beginning I thought Kjerstad had the batting makeup of Will Clark, a lot of fellow Hogs fans feel that way as well. WOULD NOT be surprised if the O's select Arkansas infielder Casey Martin at either 30 or 39.
  6. Led Team USA with .395 average and OPSed 1.100 after 16 games.
  7. Fantastic article on the Hogville (Arkansas fan site). https://d1baseball.com/columns/drivelines-anatomy-of-a-prospect-arkansas-heston-kjerstad/
  8. Kjerstad hit 6 homers this year and cut down on his Ks before COVID. Our last two #1s played each other in the 2018 CWS.
  9. As the only Orioles and Razorbacks fan on the planet I am thrilled with this pick. I've watched numerous games with Kjerstad since he came our way from Amarillo, Texas. Beautiful fluid swing, not a lot of holes, plays in an elite conference. Built perfectly for OPACY. Decent fielder. Also works with an outstanding staff in Fayetteville. Woooo Pig!
  10. I haven't followed this thread but what happened to Emerson Hancock?
  11. I wouldn’t go for free. The price of parking or the train from Glen Burnie is more than this team is worth. I’ll enjoy potentially the last season in Frederick instead.
  12. Will Sedlock come back to our organization?
