Conventional wisdom in the NFL says that you need at least three years to properly judge a draft class. Sure, giving out grades right after the fact is always fun. But there’s a lot to be said for waiting to see the players actually take the field before we can truly see if they pan out or not.
The Rams admitted their mistake this offseason, signing Andrew Whitworth to play left tackle. Robinson will have one last chance to save his career at guard or right tackle next year.
Nick Coomes is forced to perform nearly a full split to get the last out of the inning at first. Definitely not a good defensive outing from LSU, but it only results in one run. Florida can credit its 2-0 lead to LSU’s three errors.
ANOTHER error from LSU, this time from third baseman Josh Smith. Dalton Guthrie reaches, and Florida has runners on first and second. Florida up 2-0,
Gators capitalize on another mistake from LSU. Deacon Liput singles to center, scoring Nick Horvath from second.
Why he’s here: The All-Star Game might be in Miami, but this exhibition will be a celebration of the young stars for the AL’s best team, the Astros. Springer is the fifth guy we’ve mentioned here, and second baseman Jose Altuve (27) and closer Ken Giles (26) could make the squad, too. Worth noting that Springer has those 22 homers with all 70 of his starts as Houston’s leadoff hitter.
