Jordan Danks could return to Texas. Everyone thought he’d be gone but if he’s not signed by August 15th he’ll be back next season.


I thought he’d be back at Texas when he dropped to the 7th round, but Jordan Danks is motivated to join his brother with White Sox.


Three UT stars (Kyle Russell, Jordan Danks and Preston Clark) are looking for their first regional championship.


Soon after the Longhorns took the championship trophy off the field in Oklahoma City the Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship All-Tournament Team was announced. Three Texas players were named to the team and first baseman [tag]Brandon Belt[/tag] was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. Belt hit .588 with two doubles, one home run and 10 RBI in four games.

Check below for the full team:

Baseball beats #9 Texas A&M 5-2 to open series. Good game by Jordan Danks and good outing by pitcher Chance Ruffin.

Sadly, the Horns lost their first Big 12 series of the year. They played two very uncharacteristic games this weekend. It was almost like watching a team I’d never seen before. Jeckyll and Hyde. The team on Saturday? That was the team we’ve been watching all year long. But yesterday? Almost all of the things that went wrong on Friday night went wrong again yesterday afternoon as they lost 4-5. Coming away from the weekend, all I can hope is that the team got it out of their system.

I also hope [tag]Missouri[/tag] comes earlier in the season next year!

Two notes: [tag]Jordan Danks[/tag] jammed his shoulder and had to leave the game early on Saturday. [tag]Kyle Russell[/tag] jammed his wrist and had to leave the game early on Sunday. In the post-game interview, Coach Garrido said he didn’t think either injury was very bad (Jordan Danks actually went in as a pinch runner in Sunday’s game) and that they’d both be back for the A&M game. Here’s hoping.

I also hope they Horns manage to schedule a game for the 12th. I don’t think they need the game. But, it certainly couldn’t hurt to get a game in. I don’t know that letting the team “stew” on the Missouri series for 11 days without facing another team would be the best thing to happen right now. Too much time to second-guess, m’thinks.

Anyway, for more specifics on how things went this yesterday:

Check out the Daily Texan article for a great action photo of Travis Tucker. And, note that the recap has an error (it states that the Missouri’s fifth run was scored on a balk…it wasn’t).

Hopefully, I’ll have better news to report next time. Hook ’em!
