Ugh! Vacation Post

Still no word on Austin Wright and his future. Why this has become my quest, I don’t know. But I am determined to be the first to tell my readers what his intentions are, which at this moment seem to be to go to Arkansas. To me, that seems to be a good call. Wright’s a lefty with tremendous upside (thanks ESPN), but he could get lost in the minors. At Arkansas, he will be engaged for three months a year for three years, which is a reasonable time frame for someone his age. He then should get picked in the top 10 rounds. No matters what happens after that, he’s got millions in his pocket.
