Anthony Rendon and the Rice Owls look to return to the College World Series for the first time since 2008

Rendon Gets Green Light

Some great news came out of Rice University today. Anthony Rendon has been given clearance to resume all baseball activites once again. The can’t miss third baseman and consensus number one pick has been swinging in the cages since November.  The Owls first game is February 18. 

Rice has made seven appearances in the College World Series since 1997, but none since 2008.

“I’m full go.  I think I’m actually right on schedule, or maybe a few weeks ahead or a month.  The doctor said he was very impressed with my work on my rehab. I’m ready to go.””  Anthony Rendon

Today just got a whole lot better Pirates fans.  Now let’s see how well Rendon murders pitching this season and in 152 days hold our breath while the Bucs put Rendon in black and yellow.

Here is the link to the Rice Owls season ticket video with pitchman Anthony Rendon, long ball hitting Anthony Rendon, and defensive wizard Anthony Rendon.

    Big Bob Nutting was traveling east on the PA Turnpike in this recently acquired 2002 Ford Expedition XLT, enroute to his (as he likes to call it) “other big baby”…..The ski resort of 7-Springs.
    He usually listens to the country stations along the way, but today he figured he would take a few minutes to listen to Pittsburgh sports station The Fan.
    Why not catch up on the latest in Pirate news?!…..As it would save him a call to GM Neal Huntington or faraway President Zelionople Coonelly (who last was heard from in the Greek isles….Eating olives and resting comfortably).
    After taking a long sip of ginger bread latte…..Nutting went to put his Pirate cup full of “the bean” back in the dashboard beverage holder.
    That is when he heard the news from the radio……”The Fan reports that the Pirates have traded RHP Joe Martinez for future considerations. The Pirates had picked up Martinez from the SF Giants in the latter part of this past summer.”
    Nutting let out a country howl and grinned wider than a cheshire cat….”That’s my boy Neal!”, he proclaimed loudly…..”Always lookin’ to save moolah!”

    He decided to call and congratulate his favorite GM:
    Huntington: Huntington here!

    Nutting: Neal….Nutting here! Just heard the news that you cut bait with one of those World Series Giant pitchers from our roster…..Martinez was the name…..Damn good move Neal. We don’t need any World Series types on our accounting sheet.

    Huntington: Oh….ummmm…..Yes boss…..Thank you…..You’re exactly right.

    Nutting: Was that the guy with the black beard?

    Huntington: No….No boss.

    Nutting: Well….Anyway…..Good job! We don’t want any of our fans getting any crazy ideas. You know….Just “pretend” like we’re putting that kinda team together. That’s why I approved that Hurdle guy as manager.

    Huntington: In other words boss….Business as usual?

    Nutting: Tis the off-season……Business as usual!…..I’m out!….*click*…..

    ….And with that…..Nutting exited the PA Turnpike.
    Why pay extra when you know the back roads?

    The only problem with taking a position player from college is you can’t get a true read of his power. So if the Bucs do draft him. The fans can’t expect him to be a big bopper in the majors. I see him in the same range as Pedro (15-20) not a lot foe corner infielder. But with Rendon at third and Alvarez should be sufficient.
