While I got ya, here are nine things and one crazy prediction:
1. Junior pitcher Corey Knebel had a bittersweet finish to a spectacular career as closer for the Texas baseball team with 37 career saves, second all-time behind Huston Street. But he will soon start anew with a professional career after agreeing to terms with the Detroit Tigers on a contract that pays him a $1.433 million signing bonus. He was drafted 39th overall. “I don’t know where I’ll go yet,” Knebel told me Sunday. “I’m very excited and surprised. I never thought this would happen, and I thought it was just a crazy dream I had when I was younger. But now it’s all coming true.” He said he will take a physical Monday, and if he passes, he will sign Tuesday.
