Daily Drizzle (March 30th, 2013)

Hey all,

Looks to be heavy Baseball news today, hope you enjoy the reads!!

Looks like Coach DiMare will be leading our men's team into the NCAA Baseball tournament because Coach Morris is still at the hospital at Duke University.. http://miamiherald.typepad.com/umiami/2013/05/um-canes-baseball-coach-jim-morris-will-not-coach-in-ncaa-regional-opener.html

Chris Diaz gets the start tomorrow verse Okie State.. http://miamiherald.typepad.com/umiami/2013/05/diaz-to-get-start-in-ums-baseball-regional-morris-still-hospitalized-but.html

Here's another article on our Diamond Canes and how they're trying to step up to the challenge to the "plus arms" they'll face in the region they're in... http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/um-hurricanes/fl-miami-ncaa-baseball-preview-0531-20130530,0,4820502.story

Here's a look at the Preseason 1st-4th Team All ACC rankings by Phill Steele. The one that jumps out at me the most is that Logan Thomas is ranked above Stephen Morris. What say you?.. http://www.philsteele.com/Blogs/2013/MAY13/DBMay30.html

This article is a few days old but it may be worth pointing out.. Nevin Shapiro is admitting that he lied under oath in a separate trial at the Federal level of the Court System(i.e PERJURY).. Yea, let that sink in a bit.. He wrote a letter to the Florida BAR and a federal judge saying that he testified under oath against a local Miami business man who is now serving 18 years in prison due to his faulty testimony (as well as other evidence, not JUST Shapiro). This is a rather lengthy article and there is more to this story. It just goes to show you how much of a scum bag this guy really is. I doubt this effects the NCAA case but it sure as heck doesn't help matters.. http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/05/26/3417799/convicted-um-booster-shapiro-says.html

I don't agree with this article whole-heartedly but I understand.. It's about Coach Morris and whether he should be replaced as the head Baseball Coach after his contract runs out in 2015. UM every year faces an uphill battle for recruits because schollies are limited and those who don't earn them must pay their way through school and at a private school, that's a hefty toll. That leaves UM having to follow the saying "do more with less" almost literally and having to do it every year no less. Coach Morris has been "coaching 'em up" UM for over 30 years and he's done it well.. Yea we've had some "down years" but in the hyper competitive ACC and with thinned talent over the last few years, I give him credit.. http://gamedayr.com/gamedayr/is-it-time-for-a-change-at-the-top-of-miami-baseball/

Stay classy Canes fans!
