Yesterday was Tobiah Hopper's 40th birthday. I hope you all celebrated by wearing an oversized undershirt and surprising everyone around you by burying a corner three.
Former Cards Will Smith and Drew Harrington both make the MLB Pipeline Team of the Week.
Smith tallied a hit in all seven games last week for the Quakes, with six of his 11 hits going for extra bases. Three of those hits were home runs, largely thanks to his first career multihomer game on Sunday, and he also stole four bases in as many attempts. And though he started a majority of his games behind the plate, Smith started two games at second base, as well as one at the hot corner.
LHP: Drew Harrington, Columbia Fire Frogs (Class A Advanced)
(Braves' No. 25 prospect)
1-0, 0.00 ERA, 2 GS, 12 IP, 9 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 0.83 WHIP
After struggling in his second start for the Fire Frogs (6 ER on 12 H in 4 1/3 innings), Harrington worked 12 innings without allowing an earned run last week to lower his ERA to 2.42 through four turns. The 22-year-old lefty was particularly sharp on Sunday, tossing seven frames of three-hit ball with three strikeouts against Clearwater.
Smith was also named the California League Player of the Week on Monday.
Terry is single-handedly bringing the Celtics back.
Everyone's saying it.

Former Maryland star Juan Dixon has been named the new head coach at Coppin State.
Kentucky is losing more points per game from this season's team than 324 of the 351 Division-I teams averaged last season. They also might be losing the first "none and done" player in college hoops history.
I don't know anything about this kid, but his name is Akok Akok and so we need him.
Western Kentucky has left Russell Athletic in favor of Nike. This leaves Southern Mississippi as the only Russell Athletic school in the FBS.
College basketball is likely going to move its opening day to the Tuesday before the second Friday in November -- a day where there are no college or NFL football games to compete with. Coaches are in favor of the move.
The new SB Nation mock NBA Draft has Donovan going to the Jazz, which seems to be a popular prediction at the moment.
24. Utah Jazz — Donovan Mitchell, SG, Louisville
If Mitchell decides to go back to school, he could vault Louisville to the top five in the preseason polls. There's also the chance some team falls in love with his elite athleticism at the draft combine and he gets a spot in the late first.

This isn't the first time in recent memory that Miami has had a lot of hype coming out of spring practice. Is it justified this go-round?
Dez's time has arrived.

If this guy doesn't call himself Mangok's "Mathiangent" then ... well then I'll just say that Mangok made the wrong call here.
