All those Vandy pitchers! - 07/20/14
Just this weekend, former Vandy pitchers were dominating local news in the major leagues. David Price spun 8 innings of shutout baseball last night for the Rays, and Drew Verhagen made his major league debut with the Tigers. (Verhagen got the loss, allowing three earned runs in 5 innings.)
And today, Sonny Gray is on the hill for the A's. Dan Phillips and I were discussing earlier today about what a snub it was for Gray not to be added to the American League All Star roster. He is 10-3 with an ERA less than 3.00 Perhaps the second year pitcher from Smyrna just doesn't have the reputation yet, but it looks like he will in time.
Even if Tim Corbin wanted to, it would be hard for the Vandy head coach to take trips to watch all his former Dores hurl!
