Welcome to Dirtbags Baseball blog! I was introduced to Long Beach State baseball in 2002 when my nephew, Neil Jamison, joined the team (and university) as a freshman. I started the blog in March of 2004, and generally discuss the team, current players and those that have moved on to professional baseball - as Neil has done in the San Diego Padres organization. Living in San Diego County, and with Neil moving to the next level, I won't be attending as many Dirtbags games. But, mostly from a distance, I'll remain a Dirtbags fan. I welcome tips on stories and information concerning the Dirtbags (current, past and future). I can be contacted at

Media Day Revelations By Coach Weathers

During the College Baseball Media Day Dirtbags Coach Mike Weathers revealed:

In his view, in light of its talent, the 2004 team underacheived - in his words "something was missing". Though the talent level is less this year, he's impressed with the leadership on the current team.

In the infield, starters at third (Danny Mocny), shortstop (Troy Tulowitzki) and second (Chuck Sindlinger) will be the same as last year. At first, after the departure of Mike Hofius, he'll be looking to Scott Bradley...and one or two others. Behind the plate, he'll be looking to Tito Cruz, Chris Jones, Jason Struble and/or Tom Sarti.

In the outfield, Sean Boatright will start in center, and Steve Valazco in right. He mentioned a leftfielder, but I missed the name (I believe a transfer from Sacramento City College).

On the mound, Cesar Ramos is set for starting on Friday night. Coach Weathers mentioned Cody Evans and Jared Hughes as potential starters. He also stated the Dirtbags will probably start Neil Jamison, the closer on last year's squad. At closer, according to Weathers, the 49ers will look to Brian Anderson and/or another incoming pitcher.

I'll try to fill in a few blanks, and update this post.

UPDATE: According to the prospectus handed out at the Media Day event, here's the projected starting lineup:

C - Tito Cruz
1B - Brandon Godfrey
2B - Chuck Sindlinger
SS - Troy Tulowitzki
3B - Danny Mocny
LF - Jamie Huizar, Jr. (transfer from Sacramento CC - all league in 2004, hit .362)
CF - Steve Valazco
RF - Sean Boatright, Jr.
DH - Evan Longoria (transfer from Rio Hondo CC - JUCO All-American, hit .435 - 14th in state, .707 slugging percentage, 15 HRs, 39 RBI0

Projected weekend starting rotation:

Friday - Cesar Ramos
Saturday - Cody Evans, Jr.
Sunday - Jared Hughes


Neil Jamison
Brian Anderson
Marco Estrada, Jr. (transfer from Glendale CC - all conference, 8-3, 86 innings, 110 Ks in 2002)

In light of the comments made by Coach Weathers during the Media Day event, it would appear that Neil Jamison may be in the starting mix at some point.

Nice work from afar by our blog prince are some of my notes to supplement his....look also for Brandon Godfrey at first and Jamie Hiizar (Sac City) as a LF...the DH could be Evan Longoria out of Rio Hondo and he can go long--.707 slugging % last year with 15 HRs...last LB team to open at ASU was the 1991 team--which went to Omaha!...more later in the Dust...
Thanks for the pickup Dan!
Jeff - Great job as usual. Don't know why I bothered to listen to the media coverage over the computer (too many distractions at work). I knew you'd have it covered. Now we've finally got the answer for the rest of the weekend pitching rotation. Can't wait for opening day! Go Dirtbags!
