Just Tribbin threads are whoever and whatever you want to talk about, and you made it clear in the last Tribbin thread you’ve got baseball on your mind a couple months before the season starts. Why the excitement, because baseball in the San Gabriel Valley is our bread and butter. Our top teams can compete with any top teams in the Southland, which is something you can’t say in another other sports, with the exception of wrestling. Guess we can thank Northview and South Hills for that. When I’m out and about, there’s already a discussion of who’s going to start No. 1. It should probably be Northview or Bishop Amat, though I think Bonita, with a pair of guys going Division I and their pitching back, could be No. 1 too. Charter Oak and Diamond Ranch might round out the top five, but we’ll see. I can’t believe I’m discussing this, it’s not even 2009 for a few more hours. Anyway, here are some of the things you’ve been saying on other threads.
Posted by Tough Choices: If there are baseball games being played right now, then why are they not listed in some sort of schedule ? I would very much like to go see a few of these games myself. Anyone have an updated schedule ?
Hmmm: Can someone please explain.
Posted by Jonesy: I know Northview has the core of it’s players back but who do they have for pitching? They lost the heart of their team last year with Williams, Elias and Andrade. Keep hearing how strong they will be again but who is pitching?
Hmmm: I think they have someone named Pedroza.
Posted by Amat90: Pitching? When it comes to pitching I don’t think any teams in the SGV have as much as Amat which returns Paez, Zuniga, Fitz, Grijalva, Mcnitt, & Cuevas (Injured last season)all quality pitching, now on the offensive side I don’t see the fire power of the past two season after losing Reyes, Fox, & Mistone, but with all the pitching Amat should be able to win most games by scoring 1 to 3 runs per game. It is going to be very fun to watch, can’t wait ’til the Glendora tournament begins.
Hmmm: Neither can I

Reaction: Like I said, the SGV can compete with anyone. Just look at all the major colleges next to these kids’ names.
