« It's over for now. Canes pitchers Andy Suarez, Chris Diaz, B-Rad, Javi Salas & OF Dale Carey drafted. | Main | Miami Hurricanes baseball coach Jim Morris gets three-year contract extension through 2018 »

Could Miami Hurricanes get back LHP Andy Suarez? Doubt it. But he still hasn't signed with Nationals.

Seven Miami Hurricanes were drafted this past weekend in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft: pitcher Andy Suarez (second round, Washington Nationals), pitcher Chris Diaz (fifth round, Atlanta Braves), outfielder Dale Carey (seventh round, Washington), pitcher Bryan Radziewski (ninth round, Houston Astros), pitcher Javi Salas  (10th round, Milwaukee Brewers), left fielder Tyler Palmer (21st round, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) and second baseman Alex Hernandez (40th round, Houston Astros).

Six of the seven have, or are expected to in the next day or so, sign, and most are heading out this week to their prospective leagues.

AndysuarezOne is holding out for now: Suarez (6-3, 2.95 ERA).

He told me this evening that he has not signed a contract, and that if he doesn't by the July 18th signing deadline, he would gladly come back to the Hurricanes.

"I'm still negotiating,'' Suarez said. "If the Nationals and I don't make an agreement I'm going to end up coming back. I really don't know what's going to happen. It would be exciting [to play pro ball], but if it doesn't happy I don't really mind coming back. It would be a good thing.''

 Suarez, 21, a Miamian who graduated from Christopher Columbus High, just completed his redshirt sophomore season at UM, and has two years of eligibility left. MLB's assigned signing value for the 57th overall pick (Suarez) is $987,800.

Hard to believe he would come back.

If he signs with the Nationals, he'll join teammate Dale Carey in the New York Penn League's short season with the Auburn Doubledays.

"He has leverage, I don't,'' said Carey on Tuesday. "I am so excited. I cannot wait."

Tyler Palmer
is flying out tomorrow for Orem, Utah, to play short season advanced rookie ball with the Orem Owlz in the Pioneer League. 

"It was pretty funny,'' Palmer said of the moment he was drafted. "I was watching the draft and a super regional and getting kind of nervous. In the 15th or 16th round I left my house in Pembroke Pines and drove to Chick-fil-A -- on my way my phone started blowing up. As I was in the drive-through ordering my food, then paying for it, I get a call from a scout with the Angels.

"'Congratulations, we drafted you,' he said. I picked up my food, called my parents and brother and they were all ecstatic."

 ******************************************************************************************

   Bryan Radziewski told me tonight that he signed with the Astros today and will play for the Tri-City Valley Cats of Albany, N.Y., in the New York Penn League: His roommate? Alex Hernandez.  

  "It's definitely going to make the transition for me a lot easier,'' B-Rad said. "I haven't been away from home before. It's a lot more responsibility, but UM prepared us to be responsible.''

  Hernandez, 22, of West Palm Beach, was the first player taken in the 40th round -- the final round of the draft. "It was pretty nerve-racking because I'm a senior and it was pretty much do or die.''

   So, Hernandez and his parents, girlfriend and brother tried to relieve the stress by going to a movie. "An old friend of mine texted me saying, 'Better late than never,' Hernandez said. "I thought, 'What is this guy talking about?'

  "I went on Twitter, refreshed it and my name popped up. I saw that I got drafted before the movie started. They all started screaming and hugging me. We left.''

Chris Diaz said he's heading to Rome, Ga., to play for the Rome Braves. "This is something I've wanted to do my whole life,'' Diaz said. "I can't wait to start.''

More of the same uninformed, uneducated, cane retard.

If you go by the final poll of the year UF plays 6 top 25 teams to UM only 3.

If you go by the preseason polls UF plays 5 top 25 teams to UM only 2.

.

what is it about those facts year in and year out that don't compute in ur pea-brains ? u play 2 or 3 ranked teams a year MAX and still haven't pulled 10 wins in a season in well over a decade compared to Florida's 4, UCF's 4 and FSU's 3 over the same time period...

u are that former 80', present day fat, bloated, sweaty, jelly rolled mini-shirt/midrift wearing, cankles overflowing cuban creature cookie standing in line at the club looking in window telling urself, "WHATEVAH...oh jeah mang, I steal looookz goood."

Gators record against Division 2 opponents 2013:

0-1

When your school has trouble selling out home football games, what’s the logical approach to fixing that problem? How about telling fans to go to less games. Because that’s what the Miami Hurricanes ticket office is doing, believe it or not.

I guess file this one under #ACCLogic.

So is this just complete backwards-ass craziness by Miami, or is this a way for them to bulk up attendance at a game (North Carolina) that otherwise might have a lot of empty seats, as the Florida State game is always a sell-out.

When you look at the other games besides these two on Miami’s home schedule — Florida A&M, Arkansas State, Duke, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh — it becomes more clear why the University felt the need to have a gimmick to silence the echoes of the empty seats in Sun Life Stadium for at least one more home game.

I wonder if consistently winning games and returning to being a national power would help. Maybe?

Miami Hurricanes Discourage Fans from Attending Games with Bizarre Ad

At this time of year, most big-name college football programs are hassling fans with demands to purchase expensive season tickets — but not the University of Miami. Some marketing genius at the school has come up with the foolproof plan of asking fans to attend fewer games in 2014, because that totally seems like a strategy without a chance of backfiring.

“Go to fewer games,” the ad begins. “We hope you’ll join us for as many games as you’re able,” the ad ends. It’s a confusing request, definitely, but easily the most perplexing part of the ad is the part where a freakin’ hat is considered a $30 value.

Miami Hurricanes ad encourages fans to attend fewer games?

In an interesting display of marketing acumen, the Miami Hurricanes are encouraging their fans to attend fewer football games in 2014.

The 'Canes have had trouble filling up Sun Life Stadium on game days, thanks to a combination of an off-campus stadium, mediocre football.

An ad in South Florida newspapers tells fans to "go to fewer games." The Hurricanes are offering two-game ticket packages for the home contests against Florida State and North Carolina. The 'Canes seem to have their fanbase pegged:

If you identify with any of the following statements, then the Two-Game Mini-Plan may be right for you:

1. I like exciting college football in rocking, sold-out environments.

2. I want to see the Hurricanes play the defending national champion Florida State Seminoles and the preseason top-25 North Carolina Tar Heels.

3. I'm not so sure I can make it to the other 5 home games.
