    BON reports.

    Damn. I was hoping the pitchers would wait until we get a pitching coach.

    Sorry to hear this.

    I appreciate all he did for us last year. He was instrumental in our deep CWS run last year. He’s got the stuff. He’s just got to get that control down.

    Stewart is the young guy we have that reminds me of Nixon. Very similar “stuff” to Nixon. Very similar control issues. If he can get his control down consistently, he’ll be a monster on the mound.

    Morehouse looked good though I haven’t seen much of him. Is he solid to stay?

    I couldn’t see Zane Morehouse transferring. At a minimum, he’ll be a mid-week starter—the role he earned late in the year. Ideally, that’s where he would stay next year. But… Morehouse may be forced into weekend starting duties. He was good at handling mid-week competition. He’ll have to step it up to consistently handle the more sophisticated batters we face during weekend competition. He throws hard — mid 90s fastball all day. Good pitcher. I don’t think he’s shown enough to go in the early or even mid rounds yet.

    I hoped he would come back tanned, rested, and ready for 2023.
