    Glendora and Damien both have tough games,

    Glendora has to face Austin Wilson a 6’5 center fielder who will be drafted in the 1st round in 2 weeks, here is his baseball card: http://cgi.ebay.com/2009-TOPPS-BOWMAN-AFLAC-Austin-Wilson-ROOKIE-QTY-/300371517377?cmd=ViewItem&pt=US_Baseball&hash=item45ef899fc1

    Damien has to face a good REV team and possibly Griffin Murphy a big time lefty, goin to USD but will sign as a late 1st/2nd rounder in 2 weeks.

  • Division 6

    What about in division 6 rio hondo prep aren’t they in the sgv?

  • Old Timer

    Love how Fred got that “now that the scandal is over and the winners on the fiels are moving on” LOL Fred you have loved SH so much you would never say anything wrong to them, unless it made Amat look better. Those kids and that coach should be suspended for the next game.

    Good luck to the rest of the Valley in hopes they do it right.

  • Liner

    And Austin Williams will have to face Plutko, so there you go. And whoever they throw will face a very good hitting team in Glendora, 6’6″ Alexander, isn’t bad to start,the list is pretty solid.Should be good.

  • Basic

    Fred,

    Thx for giving well derserved “props” to the Bearcats but I think I like it better when you were giving them none and all we would read about is SH and BA

  • LovetheGame

    Harvard Westlake will be facing Lucas Giolito. He is a 15 year old 6-5 sophomore. He is on the 87-91 range. He had done well in and should be tested well by throwing in the Mission league. It will be a great game. Div. II is so loaded. When some of the wildcards or lower seeds beat some of the top seeds they were really no upsets. If would have won or lost one more game tht would have been the difference from 4th and 1st. Good luck Glendora.

  • Scandalous Reporting

    Gee Fred, “scandal”? Do you know the meaning of the word. Pedophile priests, that’s a scandal. Congressmen who hit or date Congressional Interns that’s a scandal.

    Destroying the reputation of an entity, thats a scandal. Hyperbole at its best.

    No wonder the integrity issues keeps raising it’s ugly head, scandal? Come on Fred, seems Aram’s rubbing off on your or you’re feeling the heat of Aram’s return. Next thing we’ll see is Fred going into rehab to get some much needed publicity or making a Ricky Martin declaration, not that either one would be shocking.

  • Glendora

    Ok if harvard westlake throws a guy who throws decent speed Glendora will jump all over him and they will crush. But if they throw an offspeed guy the game will be close. I still believe Glendora will come out on top they have too many weapons. If they throw the sophomore I predict 9-0 or 9-1 if they throw an offspeed picture I predict 3-1 or 2-0

  • FredJ

    Sometimes you have to laugh at it all. Rehab? That was funny.

  • FredJ

    Here is some breaking news for you, Adam Plutko may not start for Glendora on Tuesday, he’s nursing a pulled groin muscle. He’s a game-time decision, with Smigelski set to go if Plutko can’t.

  • TMZ

    Fred you went with “rehab”….interesting.
    Hey at least you’re having fun with all this.

    BTW are any of the Sportswriters married? Ricky wants to know.

    Fred?
    Steve?
    Aram?
    Guru?

    Not for nothing fellas but that’s odd right? Steve’s about 35 but I hear his girlfriend is a Laker Girl and they’re keeping it on the down low so she doesn’t lose her job. Fred’s at least 40 and lost his true first love to Robert Morales back in high school because she was into ruff necks. Aram is about 34 and is doing the David Lettermen thing, also called So You Wanna Be A Writer? Guru is 50 plus, if he’s a day, and smiles more than Nathan Lane! I always wondered why they called him Coach Giggles! I heard about being married to your career but all of you guys? At least Robert’s been married three times!

  • Marcos Martinez

    Way to go Dorian Granados of Damien High. I knew you had it in you kid. From your boys over at the SoCal Prospects…

  • FredJ

    That’s cold, funny, but cold. thanks for saying I’m at least 40…42 to be exact, and yes single. Hey, we keep trying but the women want nothing to do with guys on sportswriter salaries :)

  • Spartan Baseball IS BACK !!!

    Way to go Dorian is right, even if your dad did go to Cantwell, lol !

    Best of luck, your dad must have jumped up and down all over the place. Sorry I missed the game. I had a nice conversation with your Pops @ Glendora when you guys lost in a tough way. Seems we went to school and know allot of the same people from way back.

    Best of luck to all the Spartans, Leyva really has things going in the right direction. Damien Baseball is back !

  • DamienScore

    Damien will have its hand full with REV, but as always they will rise to the occassion. We played REV early in the season this year and lost, but that was then this is now. The team is geling, some of the juniors like,
    A. Gonzales, J. Chavez and D. Granados are stepping up their game and contributing in a big way, but most importantly, the seniors have established themselves as leaders and are leading by example. E. Lewis, B. Oatman, G.Ortega, J. Larez, N. Bast, A. Young, B. Martin, and so on. Great job boys! Good luck tomorrow to the Spartans and to the rest of the SGV teams. Finish what you started.

  • Baseball NUT!

    WOW! I leave for three days, and all kinds of things happen.
    First let me say I was in Seattle to watch the softball regionals. As you may or may not know UW took the title, and are looking to repeat as NATL Champs. Let me also say we went to see my niece who pitched her last game as a college senior at UNC. Our neice is Daniell or Danny Spaulding who prepped at Etiwanda in Rancho WAS AMAZING~.

    She caped off a FANTASTIC career at Chapel Hill, and I want to say out loud in here that I am VERY proud of her, and love her very much. She was here in March for a tournment in Fullerton, as well as a game vs UCLA. Were prouf of you DANNY.

    Second, holy hockey puck batman, the S/H field thrashed. What a shame.

    Looking to get in a few innings tomorrow at Bonita, before my daughter gives her choir performance.

    GOOD LUCK TO ALL TEAMS REMAINING TUESDAY!

  • Slightly to the East

    Realize it is now out of the Trib’s area – but Western Christian in D V has had a strong season and are an excellent TEAM. Get Campbell Hall this week, with the winner likely to face Covey and Maranatha.

  • Damien Who?

    Damien Baseball will end tomorrow! You played them earlier in the season and got crushed. Do you really think you have the bats to compete against Murphy? Get read to add to the 117K’s if Murphy pitches. LOL

  • ………….

    Damien Who?: Too bad murphy isn’t throwing tomorrow you donkey

  • socalbaseball fan

    I believe REV will throw #2 pitcher sr Kyle McNutt as Griffin Murphy pitched 5 innings on friday and may be used in relief for one or two innings. The key to REV is keeping leading off batter 2B Andrew Redmond and #3 hitter CF Andrew Beckley(UCR) off the bases as they will steal 2nd and I have not seen anyone throw them out this year. REV does not have one big hitter and the lower part of the lineup can hit led by jr ss Drew Hernandez. Murphy may DH today as he hit in the last game. He has not been used as a hitter much this year even when pitching.
    REV ballpark is difficult to hit home runs and gap doubles is REV’s specialty. REV plays great defense especially up the middle and has a big catcher sr Brad Burcuff who can throw out runners. My prediction is REV 8 Damien 4.
    A few mile away wild card Yucaipa will be at home vs Northwood and will be pitching sr Jose Cota. If they win this game they will have ace Taijuan Walker ready for friday’s game. Prediction Yucaipa 10 Northwood 3.
    Glendora may not be tested till the next round when they will face a hot team in Upland who has rebounded from a 1-4 league start. Could be Plutko vs Uplands ace friday.
    Unfortunately I am working all this week and will miss these big games.

  • Baseball NUT!

    SGV Baseball,

    I have a question for you. I believe it was you who goes by the Cal Preps rankings, ratings, strength among others which happens to be linked to Max Preps. Can you explain how a team can advance in the playoffs and yet drop so far in the rankings? How can South Hills WIN, and fall 35 places, and worse Bonita Wins and falls over 70 spots. Heck Even Glendora dropped 4 spots. This is why I rarely use thier ranking when tring to disect a team. They must think that there are 130+ teams BETTER than Bonita, in our state and 70 + better than South Hills, and I actually doubt that. They can’t even be going on competition, because then Amat would have dropped. I mean they played a team who was in the 400′s, got shut out by Amat and they actually moved up AFTER a loss.
    Please explain!

    If it wasn’t you that I was discussing this with earlier in then season, then I apoligize

  • Baseball NUT!

    So Cal baseball fan,

    I think Murphy will give Damien fits. With his fastball reaching 91, it will actually look clsoer to 95-96, with his long arms and 6’4″ frame coming off the hill.
    Isn’t this the kid who’s dad lets him go to places on his own,like camps and such out of state? Must be fun and scary at the same time.

    HOWEVER, I do wonder how a H.S senior is still around at age NINETEEN! He should be a sophmore @ UC San Diego, unless he was deathly ill for a full year.

    REV advances 8-3

  • Miramonte (RIP) Fan

    First team from bohi should include Mier (over .420 with 6 HRs) and Gelalich (Over .500). Both of them are only juniors. Bridgewater from DR is unreal…10HRs and a .580 BA as a junior. Goodwin had a great year for DR as well and deserves consideration. For Charter Oak, Travis Santiago is only a soph and had an ERA around 1 AND hit around .370. I dont think Santiago will beat out Paez, Plutko or Matthews though.

    A lot of good talent comiing back next year throughout the valley.

  • Damien Who

    ….said

    Maybe you have a chance? LOL Remember the CRUSHED early on, who hit? Where are your bats? What pitcher can throw maybe 85/86 at best.. LOL

    Batting practice coming up! If Murp doesnt throw that’s a GIFT to Damien, because your sticks suck, especially all those K’s from those so called Senior leaders? LOL

  • scores?

    Great day for the Huths. Anyone know what happened to Damien. Tough going for South Hills after al that talk. What about Glendora, any details. The update system sucks today, that’s for sure. Heard Amat lost. How can that be?

    Glendora wins 5-3.

  • Wow

    Indio? Really? Huh…..

  • Amat march to the ring

    Amat wins 14-6. Rio had a good game and jordan mccraney hit a deep homerun, mcnitt was not himself, but had a overall good game. Even with 14 scored runs amat left at least 15 runners on base. The animal paez closed out the game like the animal he is. Good game

  • Spartan Dad

    Hey Damien Who,

    How ya like us now. Bats and all. Great job boys!

  • Karma

    The Baseball Gods have spoken:South Hills hope you a enjoyed your nice drive home. #3 seed gone. Smith, I guess you wont be having that home game Friday that you mentioned to Robledo. What kind of coach talks about a game that is 6 days away-jinx-no respect to Landcaster. How many hits did #16 have. You should have pulled over at a park before the game and taken some BP.

  • DamienScore

    Big win! When nobody gave us a chance our boys proved that they can play with anybody. They went to Redlands and beat REV on their home field. Sr. RHP,James Guillen went a full six. He was on fire. His curve kept REV off balance and they didn’t know what to swing at. He did a helluva job. Jr. LHP, Antonio Gonzales, best closer around, did his job and slammed the door in the 7th. Big game from Jr. 3B, Joe Chavez, 3 RBI’s and great glove play. Jr. LF, Dorian Granados was still on fire from the PV game and had some clutch hits. This was a great team win. Hats off to the seniors for there great leadership. Leyva did a great job of preparing the boys to go into hostile territory and beat a very good team. Friday off to El Toro, Go Spartans.

  • fan

    who won the garey-el segundo game?

  • Aaron

    So no South Hills on Thursday, the game most possibly in the desert…ouch. Or does homsefield not change until the semis?

  • lilttle league coach

    damien score “he went the full six” what does that mean, the games are a “full” seven….lmao

  • Jackboy

    Congrats Damien, Glendora, Bishop Amat, and Bonita. (All Class all the time). Its nice to see the right teams win! Im ok with Karma, the Baseball Gods or whatever you want to call it. Surely the South Hills boys had a long trip home, but maybe they will learn something along the way, Character and Class in winning or losing or just playing with it. Smitty, Its probably to late for you to learn something on this subject but Im sure your young men that play for you are all second guessing you and questioning your lack of Class.
    I have a feeling the good folks at Bonita were looking forward to playing you again. They beat you in the Cory Litle tournament earlier this year. Oh, but you werent keeping score. When I heard you say that I knew you were destined to fail. To coach Smith and staff, you are the most arrogant coaching staff I have ever seen, and it may have cost you a championship. Stay confident with humility and youll go further in life, and certainly do better next year.

  • 5DOLLAR

    Jack boy,
    Maybe you should show some class. I never knew South Hills was hated so much, but after the last few days, I see they are. And I just don’t understand it.
    The South Hills team has nothing to be ashamed of. Two trip to the finals, with one CIF title, that’s not too shabby.

  • Steve Ramirez

    Stop the hate

  • Jackboy

    5 Dollar, I dont know why your taking the truth about the South Hills coaching staff so personally. Sounds like I touched a nerve there coach! As for why South Hills is so hated, all you have to do is go to a game and watch the coaching staff in action, They(you) are truly bush league at times. Your right about one thing 5 dollar, your young men at South Hills has absolutely nothing to be ashamed about except their coaching staff! So coach, get your head out of the sand and take that 5 Dollars and go buy some better Wiffle balls.

  • jackboysmybeotch

    jackboy,

    how many games have you attended and just kept your trap shut? you’re so full of knowledge about the south hills team with their arrogant classless coaches and their bush league way of playing that i doubt your mouth doesn’t stop running during a game — or maybe it does and you have to come here on the blog under a pet name so no one can see who you really are. post your real name big boy, it’s easy to call someone out with a mask on, man up.

  • Baseball NUT!

    Nice job to all the winners, keep plugging along! REMEMBER its who gets HOT and plays TOGETHER during these three weeks. NOT always the BEST talented teams win, heck look no further than Cameron and Barranca!

    AS for South HIlls,
    IF Coach Smith would ever get the boot from SH they could be in the finals practically every year,as They have very good players almost every season. He has cost them I believe at least TWO other titles. The one he lost in 2008 was on two bad calls,otherwise they may have more. How many times has he had the SUPERIOR talent and they go down in the first two rounds. MAYBE its HIS turn to feel the rash of not assuming the name on the jersey means W’s”

    SEEMS AS THOUGH,
    Bonita’s bats have taken a nap, BUT WOW, thier arms are heated up and ready to go. Looks like Damien has BOTH bats and arms on fire. AMAT is it’s usual self, mowing em’ down.

    Here is Friday’s schedule, all results of coin flips, last week.

    VALENCIA @ GLENDORA

    DAMIEN @ EL TORO

    LANCASTER @ BONITA

    TORRANCE @ BISHOP AMAT

    My pick for the DIV III championship is GONE in SOUTH HILLS, but my other teams are still alive in the top 5 divisions.

    My DIV I pick was ROYAL, DIV II EL TORO, DIV IV, AMAT, AND DIV V MONTCLAIR PREP.

    I will now CHEEER for DAMIEN IN DIV II to beat El TORO, and BONITA to win it all in DIV III!

    Good Luck guys!

    P.S my name changes AFTER the finals for football season, ie…. passing leagues, camps and season. Just don’t want people thinking I speak behind the blog, with new name every week.

  • call it what you want

    I’m laughing right now as I’m sure Coach Smith will too if he were to read these comments.

    Say what you want about him, it’s the same every year. You seem to think good quality players will stop coming to SH because of Coach Smith?? Coach Smith is one high school baseball coach who doesn’t have to recruit. He continually runs a program that wins.

    Players win games, coaches lose them and Coach Smith is a smart Coach who knows that.

    Sticks and Stones.

    Thank you Coach for arguing calls on the field that bugs everyone else so much. When you stop fighting for your team, then it’s time to quit.

    This is why Amat (SOFTBALL) lost the the coaches line-up was made up of 6 girls that were hitting below 300. Good call coach way to make a line up. Check Max Prep.

    VINDICATED:

    “Argyle (16-4) clearly was flustered by the umpiring crew which ruled her delivery “illegal” four times and erased a flyout in the first inning and brought home the first of two La Habra runs in the fifth, when the Highlanders turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead.

    Argyle lifts her trail foot as she releases her pitch, a rules violation most umpires ignore, Mitchell said.

    “She gets airborne, but it’s not something (umpires) really want to call,” Mitchell said. “They felt she was getting a little too high, so they called it (twice) in the first two innings, then they stopped. All of a sudden, they called it in the fifth with runners at second and third.”

  • KARMA SAYS

  • sgvbaseball fan

    So is your field going to be ready for that Friday game that you mentioned Coach Smith? Oh sorry I guess you don’t have to worry about that any more. The game never lies have a good off season, hit the recruiting trail.

  • Jackboy

    Its really funny how youll call Coach Smith a smart coach. Its amazing how he can take a great group of players and turns them into an average team, now thats a real gift. He and his staff have always had a reputation for having Rabbit ears. I doubt very much Smittys laughing now or even after he reads these blogs, as for recruiting, other than Amat or Damien, who recruits? Not Glendora, Bonita, or any of the public high schools that are still alive in the playoffs. South Hills has always been a great area for baseball talent. Its never a surprise to see South Hills in the hunt. So stop apologizing for Smitty Its pathetic.

  • toolman

    Congrats to all teams winners and losers you all are all winners..

    First, without a doubt the coach of the year is Bonita Knott!!!! How do you lose 3 stud pitchers, a first round mlb pick, and other seniors, retool with inexperienced pitchers yes thats true, and win league and make this kind of run Wow

    Honorable mention coaches who had tons of pitchers coming back with experience, Damien Levya, Amat Nieto, Glendora Henley , Walnut Hoff

    Coaches award for most underachieving South Hills Smith, Diamond Bar Shibley, Diamond Ranch Francis, all three have some of the top players in the valley and what did they do,early exit, third and third.

    More awards:
    Best blogger: Huth
    Most knowledge: Baseball nut

    Glendora I hope yall win it as those boys have worked so hard from the day they were 8 on up.

    Damien I hope you play Glendora again and make D2 an all Sierra final. Great team Great kids.

    Go SGV baseball

  • You Couldn’t Hold Smith’s Jock

    For the person who is posting on this boarding under multiple names and trying to trash South Hills and their coach.

    We know who you are. We know that you want him gone so you can apply for the job. You’re not fooling anyone. By the way, you would never get the job anyway.

    You’re a good assistant, so just relax and enjoy your role. You’re not all that and little Johnny isn’t either.

    Grow up and go back to the Little League park.

    Nuff said!

  • Karma

    Hey Smitty – take your time getting that field ready. You have 9 months before you will need it.

  • You Couldn’t Hold Smith’s Jock

    Karma AKA Little League Mgr / Dad

    This isn’t Smitty, but we know who you are.

    Like I said before you couldn’t hold his jock even if he was only half in it.

    I hear they are looking for coaches next year over at Cortez. You can probably fool more people there, but not here.

    Go tell them how good you are and how you and little Johnny are the best players that ever played.

    The 9 and 10 year olds might believe it.

    Nuff said!

  • Baseball NUT!

    KH,
    Put the Henessey bottle down, and RELAX dude! I am a fan of the SGV as a whole. Just because I didn’t pick Bonita to win it all, does not mean I want them to fail.

    I will cheer for the Bonita team to bring it home, including your kid. However its parents like you that make other parents, and fans wishing a school would lose just so the parent will ” go away”.

    As for me being like Fred. Well it can’t happen. See I am a USC season ticket holder, and he loves his Bruins. But that is what makes it great. WE each have our own opinion,and can talk about it. WE do (Fred, and I ) have sometihng in common as we like to follow a good SOLID winning program, whether its boys or girs. Why don’t you get Bonita a championship first, THEN come pop off at the mouth. See schools like AMAT with baseball, girls hoops, and football have WINNING tradition. Schools like South Hills in baseball and football have tradition, as does Damien for water polo, and hoops, Glendora for softball, Walnut for Girls soccer, Northview for wrestling, WC softball, St Lucy’s softball & soccer, Charter Oak football, and swimming. See the picture here Kenny? These schools have had a QUALITY program for over 10 years. IF they have one or two bad losing seasons,it doesn’t mean they fall off the radar, BECAUSE of what they have accomplished in years past. Bonita has had now TWO SOLID baseball seasons. This does NOT qualify the Cats as a elite program. Heck their girls get more pub than the boys. And you wonder WHY Bonita isn’t talked about more. We see them if they pull off a upset or are one of a few teams left standing like now in CIF Let coach Knott put together at LEAST 5 winning years of 19-25 wins,whether they win a ring or not. Heck even D/R garners more pub, and their less than 15 years old. THEN we will hear about you. Sad to say but MOST people hate AVERAGE, or worse, and love to follow winners regarless of sport. Wonder why we never hear about L/P, or Workman, Wilson, Ganesha, or El Monte? they seldom put together winning teams. Almost anyone can get get a winning season now and then, but try to do it for 5 years + in a row.

    Also SORRY to burst your bubble but I live NORTH of the 10 fwy. I am located off the 10/57 fwy’s, in the quiet area of Via Verde. In fact if you spot the tower on the hill you can figure out about where I am at. I would love for you to stop by, and take a look. MAYBE one day you too can live here, and be my neighbor. I mena are you going to sign ALL those kids your scouting to contracts. Surly you must get a decent percentage. Heck, We can talk sports and have a bar-b-q, and a good stogie. Oh wait! ALL of my SCAB neighboor’s ALL WORK! See we don’t wait around for the mail on the 1st and 15th. But please Stop by anytime and I will be more than happy to give you our access code to the gate so you can get in. Do you think you can remember 5 numbers IN order? Oh I guess I can always “buzz” you in.

    Just please put the bottle down, take the pipe out of your mouth, get out of bed, get a shower brush those five teeth, and get a job! You will be suprised how MUCH better you will feel ONCE you begin to contribute to society, and feel like a man, instead of running your mouth, and taking from all us taxpayers.

    I was actually in your hood last night at Grace Brethern church, at E Street, and Bonita Ave. for my daughter’s choir perfoemance. I sure hope all of us SCABS didn’t bring down the property value, while we walked around “D” street later. And to think we dumped cash into your neighborhood shops too!

    Baseball Nut,
    That wasn’t really called for. However Grace Brethren became Grace Church of La Verne and they now meet at the Lutheran High Gymnasium and they used to own the property that is now Lighthouse Baptist. You went to the Church of the Brethren, the one that’s been in La Verne for ages, the people that founded the University.

    Enough of the history lesson, but don’t talk about digit codes…that ain’t cool.

  • just askin’

    was this called for
    “kh huh said:

    you lost your d-111 pick so go down with your ship.
    bonita dosent need any scab pirates,

  • Aaron

    I don’t think either of the posts were necessarily. However Mr. Huth basically said he didn’t want people jumping on the bandwagon because all of a sudden Bonita is the local team left.

    As I said both were un-called for.

    Nice going, your family must be really proud of you. You go onto a high school baseball blog to and talk about yourself and your possessions while youre supposed to be at work. Why is it you want to hold Smittys Jock so badly? You bring a whole new meaning to Baseball Nut.
    And yes, John Knott, High school coach of the year!

  • Karma

    The Baseball Gods have spoken:South Hills hope you a enjoyed your nice drive home. #3 seed gone. Smith, I guess you wont be having that home game Friday that you mentioned to Robledo. What kind of coach talks about a game that is 6 days away-jinx-no respect to Landcaster. How many hits did #16 have. You should have pulled over at a park before the game and taken some BP.

  • Baseball NUT!

    Kh,
    Please go back and read a previous post WHERE I hammered Smith and maybe he knows what it means to wear that Jersey.

    And yes My family is VERY proud of me. I work hard, and will continue to do so FOR EVERYTHING I have. NOBODY EVER gave me a dime! But all that really matters is my wife, and kids. As for me being at work, well again please feel free to stop by. I OWN my own business off of Allen Ave in San Dimas, and at MY desk is my laptop with EZ access to this blog, with a click. Also getting ready to open YET another business ( Solar panel’s, by July 1 attornies are a hassle) And who talks about themselves in here? Wasn’t you that was saying you are traveling to “scout” kids and go to CSUN., OR how YOUR a different person, now that you quit your old habits. And how you do this or that. MY post was regarding yours as me being a scab. Success is earned NOT given,,and I earned EVERYTHING I HAVE and I take offense to what you said!

    Read carefully on my posts BEFORE you open your mouth,as You seem to do this alot!
    IF my writings offended ANYONE on a previous post then I am sorry. See I can be the bigger person, what say you Kenny?

    KARMA, I couldn’t agree more. Smith is not only a cheater on the field but off as well. Its apparent that he has plenty of practice.

  • whitey

    I know this is just the “trib” so we can’t expect any knowledgeable reporting here, just the boys gravytraining on whatever angle they can use to sell a few(very few) papers, but…..I have some concerns.why do we need a wild-card round in the playoffs? Gladstone bb and sb make it, both sub-500, then we wonder why there’s upsets in the following rounds, duh guys like McNitt from Amat only pitched 1 inning in 2 weeks….kinda rusty to say the least yesterday! while I’m at it, is anybody else worried about Paez coming back on 2 days rest after having to get the last 7 outs yesterday? If the Animal wins out he’ll be 14-1 did anybody else ever match that mark? even the RHP Animal lil Frank O’Connor in 1969…..Joe Amat look thru the books for me , adios all

  • Oh kh,

    I don’t know if I should buy you a Speak & Spell, or another shot.

  • Old Timer

    Its so funny how people are finally seeing what I have been posting for almost 2 seasons here about Smitty and SH. Its comical as SH should be winning title after title with all those beasts. Smitty is average at best, all you have to do is go back and look at his record at BP or SV (forgot) which it was. He was horrible then and he is killing SH now. He has cost them year after year and those kids never get any better they get worse. Ive been posting this here for years as to how Smitty was “LUCKY” to get that job as Judy offered that job to one of the top Coach’s in this Valley for well over 20 years. To bad he was away on Vacation and didnt get the message, Now that Judy is gone and Bastion is done, Smitty is and will be bye bye IMO sooner then later. I so wanna say the Coach that would of had that job if not for vacation, but its not cool to bring his name up like that, but I will tell you this, SH probably wins 3 or 4 more titles if this coach was hired. What a shame as Smitty just doesnt get it and I dont think he ever will. Well good luck to the rest of the Valley teams that are left, as I will be watching from high up on the bleachers as I always do. Karma shows it head once in awhile and it just did by biting SH again.

  • Baseball NUT!

    KH,

    Are you advetising for a job in this little HS blog? Do you need work? Not sure you can handle it, OR how good your work ethic is, as your always hanging around the school. But a little about what will LET me sell shop and retire BEFORE 52! That is seven years of hard work in two business, then I relax and enjoy!

    Our first area will be in the city of Anaheim as they give the best rebates in the country. Our office will be out of my house, AND in San Dimas or maybe we will just rent a place to hold meetings, and give demo’s. Haven’t decide that part yet. The plant IS already located in Oakland. Installations, are handeled by a team of engineers. Customers NO longer have to buy, but sign a 10 year lease agreement. I get 20% of every customer’s bill EVERY month for the length of the contract. So figure roughly
    14.00 per house, and multiply that by 300, and thats 4,2000.00 per month for ONE CITY! Heck I may have 5,000 homes in ONE city, but cant get greety at the start. All I need is FIVE cities. We are also working on a contract with DWP, If that goes through we will be able to cover 90% of LA.

    Exactly what do you know about Photovoltiac systems?

    THIS IS FOR ANYONE WHO READS THIS WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN WORKING AND HAVE POTENTIALLY THE EARNINGS TO LET YOU RETIRE. E-mail me @ n2noles@aol.com

    As for holding Smitty’s jock your dead wrong. I follow good teams, and everyone knows SH is a good team. They got beat and their out, BUT becasue I picked them to win it all, you get all wired.

    As for Tim Mead, director of communications. I am happy you know him. I will ask him Friday when we meet before the Angel/Mariner game. His wife Carole and my mother are close friends in Diamod Bar. Hey I gave away Saturday’s game but Sunday is available, if he can’t get you in!

  • KH fan

    I am not sure what Fred does all day, but I am quite sure he does not sit around and try to monitor IP adresses so he can ensure that KH imposters are revealed. Anybody can blog and call themselves KH all day long. Fred doesn’t care and nor should he. All the paper has to do is create blog accounts so that you have to sign on to blog. Screen names could still remain anonymous, but the paper would have e-mail accounts attached to each account. Sure, you can create anonymous e-mail addresses on gmail so this wouldn’t stop all the nonsense, but probably would make people think twice before posting.

    Baseball Nut, surely you realize some of these posts are too well written to come from KH. He has a style all his own.

  • You Couldn’t Hold Smith’s Jock

    Old Timer / Karma / AKA DannyBoy,

    So sad you want the job that bad that you and your boy post all this negative stuff about South Hills and their coach under different names.

    It shows how much class you have. Aren’t these your teammates and coach your are bashing.

    If you and your boy want to keep bashing, I’ll start posting complete names of you and your boys and your personal details. Remember, if you live in a glass house, you shouldn’t throw stones. Please don’t make me go there.

    You’re a mess. Just because little Johnny didn’t play much doesn’t make Smith a bad coach. In fact, it makes him a good one. At some point, most of us need to realize that our kids aren’t Top H.S. / College / or Professional material. Stop fooling yourself and help your son find his niche in life. It’s not athletics.

    Nuff said!

  • AMAT 73

    B NUT,
    It is obvious that some of the banter between you and kh is not coming from kh. As someone posted he has a style of his own. Even the post from 5/26 @9:51 is iffy. The other post are just to clear and to the point . No knock on kh as I have learned to decipher his writing and he does have many valid points on baseball except when writing on AMAT, just kidding kh. Really all that posting is fine and well but this is really not the place for it . You do have vast knowledge of the local baseball scene . This is not the want ads nor the business section of the Trib. Please just stick to sports because although you do back SH you are probably taggd as an AMAT honk as we have been coined and we have enough to face without added posts that come across in an arrogant manner such as yours . Sorry, but just the way I read it .

  • Karma

    Bash away.
    I dont believe for one second you have the courage to Name Names I call your cowardly bluff! As for using different names I only use one, Karma. I cant help it if Smitty is a crappy coach and everyone in the SGV knows it. Jack boy said it best when he said in an earlier blog; Its really funny how youll call Coach Smith a smart coach. Its amazing how he can take a great group of players and turns them into an average team. Unfortunately sad but true. So go ahead and name names if you really have the Guts. But dont come up with some vagina lame excuse as to why you wont And really, answer the question. Why do you still want to hold Smittys Jock or are you holding it now?

  • Baseball NUT!

    Man you South Hills people are nasty. When you guys lose you lose hard, and cry a lot. You must have stopped a couple of times on the bus ride home from Lancaster for tissue paper to cry into.
    Now I know why our teenage sons like to date your daughters! Is this the kind of team chemistry and honor your coaches bring to your baseball team? Remember this is your team not Smittys. If you dont like it make a change. No one has been able to say why hes so great or smart. As I said previously the South Hills area has great baseball talent always has. If you want to see class in action tomorrow go see Glendora or Bonita, Amat or Damien play ball. Lots of great choices available.

  • Jackboy

    Not a SH Fan.
    Perhaps youre right I hope so. I have good reason to be at several games that South Hills has played in over the last few years as I have been to many local high school and college baseball games. I have sat on both sides, but mostly behind the backstop. South Hills parents by far are worst people to be around. My personal belief is that, it all starts and ends with the Varsity Baseball coach. Glendoras Henley is a great example of this and how you can turn a brash arrogant program around into a class act. He has taken control of the program and appears to be playing the best players while controlling the parents at the same time. Coach Knott of Bonita seems to have this same quality. South Hills needs the same leadership. I dont care If Smitty gets fired Im not even suggesting It. However, He needs to change his attitude.

    The last time I was at South Hills Park I was watching Bonita lose to you last year in the playoffs. I was along side the bleachers near the backstop on your side talking to my friend who also happens to have a nephew on your team. Initials B. B hes a retired Baseball scout with the Dodgers. Also there was current scout with the Rays Initials G.H who had a grandson on Bonitas team in attendance. These are Baseball people and Im sure you know thisas you seem to be quite the name dropper. Was this response quick enough for you?

  • Only a few, the others are idiots

    Outside of a few ie….. amat73, Don, Baseball nut, kh, socalfan, damien, and a few others i can’t remember right now are actually here to talk baseball, and sports in general. And it seems like they all have the knowledge to back up what they are saying. The REST of you are a bunch of idiots, that hide behind the cyber space of the internet who make it worse for the rest of us who normally just lurk and get information. Not sure why all the hating on South Hills, but I don’t really care either. As i see it & read it South Hills is a pretty good team who have won a few titles, but have a coach who may or may not have cost them another chance.

    Why can’t you guys who dislike them understand they have good teams each season and it seems who have won alot of games. The South Hills people need to realze that they got beat and thier done and stop dwelling on last seasons chmpionship. We should continue to root for the teams still involved. Its about our valley as a whole not just a few schools. You can tell when people are starting to make up stories, and or lie. The last post is prime example. The person, said he was at South Hills park watching last years game vs Bonita in cif. So i went and checked and Well last years game was AT Bonita and went extra innings. So this persone must be a bonita student or graduate who is still holding a grudge. Get over it. Besides it looks like maybe Bonita wins it this year and all will be forgivien.

    This blog is here for a purpose to follow our school where we attended, or are still attending if we can’t make the game. I mean my school sucks now, BUT we won alot of championships through the years, but I still follow others schools, and see what and how their doing.

  • MAZ

    Jackboy is right the game was played at So. Hills. Re check your facts please.

  • You Couldn’t Hold Smith’s Jock

    Only a few, the others are idiots.

    You’re on the money. Unfortunately the internet provides a place to hide for cowards and parents who can’t accept the fact that their sons / daughters are not the best athletes. They hide behind the screen and try to bash some of the winningest coaches in the valley because they can’t live their dream through their kid.

    Nieto, Smitty, Murphy all get bashed all the time, but they are winning year in and year out. Hmmm…they must be doing something right.

    As usual, it’s the cowardly parents who always ruin it for their kids and others. They should have their kid man up and talk to the coach to find out what he needs to work on or just have their kid quit and play badmiton.

    Get the idea Karma…or is that above your level of CLASS? Or did you already talk to the coach and didn’t want to accept that litte Johnny wasn’t in the top 9?

    Oh…and if you believe in Karma, there are a bunch of people out there right now talking negative about you and plotting against you like you are doing to South Hills. BE READY FOR THE REAL KARMA COMING YOUR WAY.

  • So. Hills Teacher

    Maybe we should be addressing our high school drug problem.

  • Cameron Saylor

    I don’t read these blogs that often, but this one has moved from the internet to what people are talking about around baseball. So I read the blogs – WOW!

    Speaking as a parent who’s son plays for Smitty, I watch, I listen, I comment to my son ask for his puts and takes regularly. I can honestly say he has never spoken bad word of his coach, in fact not one of his friends that also play on the team have either.

    They love him, they appreciate his passion bottom line.

    The only people I have ever heard complain are past bubble players who don’t or did not start and the parents who felt their son was slighted – both are usually the same with the parent driving that ship. Name one program that does not have this same situation taking place in every sport at every shool across America. It’s there be honest it’s just parents trying to do their just job looking after their son while sometimes looking through rose colored glasses.

    Do I agree with everything he does – No! But so what it’s not about me it’s about the kids, the players the team. A big sign to me if players like their coach is how many ex players come back for visits. There was not a single day that went by this past season that ex players starters and non starters with out someone showing up. Smitty always greeted them, let come on the field and join in the team conversation. Come one if he was so bad so hated this situation wuld never be repeated day after day after day by different guys.

    I guarantee, not everyone loves all you bloggers at your place of work. I’m sure if they had a place talk crap about you someone would. You’re not perfect and neither am I so get over it let the kids play and give the coach his props for sustaining a top tier program and move on.

    People love to hate winners, I suppose they are jealous, guys like Murphy, Nieto, Smith, Knott Leyva, Quinley, Ramano put themselves out there year after year and just win. Styles may be different but they are all passionate. I know players from every program and yes some are unhappy!

    So if you don’t like it do something about it, get involved help out be productive you’ll be better for it.

    If you think this is BS and someone else wrote it for me call me I will state the facts. 626-536-4154 yes that’s my cell.

  • Jackboy

    Cameron, thats a nice little soliloquy you wrote there. Amat just lost today and Im hoping they show more class than some of your South Hills parents have. Cameron, I do like the direction youre going here. I too read these blogs and if I were a South Hills parent or teacher I would be embarrassed. Hopefully after reading all this they can move on. Maybe we can now direct our attention to the SGV teams that are still playing and being Coached by First Class Managers like, Henley and Knott.
    Go Bearcats, Go Tartans.

  • 11 bloggers and 1000 snitches, lol

    Cameron why do people read the blogs? I go to games, you go to games, everyone goes to games…when have you been to a game that some one doesn’t talk about back door gossip or we all hear someone complain about some thing or some one. Is it that different at South Hills, I doubt it.

    A few years ago I went to see a SH practice. I stood next to Mr. Bowden. We had a nice chat and in that time, about an hour and a half, I hear more internal stuff than I ever wanted to hear. I’m not calling of Mr. B. I’m just making a point. People talk. It all started innocently when I said I like QB Willison over Deen as I thought Deen locked on receivers and Willison was just better, in my eyes. Then we talked. Nothing malicious mind you just two old farts with too much time on our hands.

    This blog however has 11 bloggers. As incredible as it may seem there are less than 20 blogger and about 9 regulars. What the heck is every one else doing? Gossiping about the blog of course. Everyone reads it. every one reads it. EVERY ONE READS IT….but no one comments?

    Okay here’s another silly question…why? Why would any one read the nonsense from people who have “bubble” kids? Because it’s always bubble kids right? If morons are truly the blogs bane of existence why tune in? Why spend the time worrying about stupid opinions of stupid people. Aren’t coaches secure in their abilities?

    Now the blog exists for four basic reasons. To generate controversy (Increases discussion), to generate hits sell, sell, sell), to vent (someone is listening, right?) and to brag (EVERYONE is listening, right?). I don’t see too much talk about much else. I won’t include drive by artist because I don’t stare at waste as I flush it down the toilet. Waste is waste , we know it exist, nuff said.

    I’ll spoken to 100 Dads who tell me all about the blog, most don’t even know I’m “that” guy yet they never admit to writing anything.

    Years ago a parent, after a few beers, was talking about the blog. He was saying this and that, playing both sides against each other, and finally when he went to empty his bladder his wife said, “You’re on the blog right? ( I though oh no here it comes)…my husband’s on it all the time. He’s so and so.(gives up his screen name) Thought you should know.” Seems my “school yard buddy” had some explaining to do( bagged on me, my kids, when we were winning, and on teh coach, when things weren’t to his liking). Two years later the same women told me, “Thanks for not outing my husband. He said plenty of terrible things about your son. I want to..” I stopped her. “I’d be mad” I told her, “but then I;d be mad at about 10 other people as well, Besides what’s the point?”. She said, “You know more screen names?” I said….”Every one repeats what they write to anyone within earshot.Most of it matches up word for word from the blog. Some of us listen better than others”. We both laughed.

    Cameron I applaud you for coming forward for your coach. I truly admire you for doing that. More parents should instead of engaging in back and forth insults. I wrote this somewhere else but I’ll change it up a bit.

    Finding out what parents think of a coach is similar to checking your daughters virtue, or lack there of, by reading bathroom stall graffiti. Not the best place to start.

    Any coach who has a problem parent should address then head on. Call in the AD and Principal and hash it out. My guess,as far as my experiences go, is most coaches wouldn’t dare. That’s sad.

    I applaud the guys who get it right because Lord knows it ain’t easy. I once asked my brother, who one heck of a coach with a 20+ year career, if he read the blog. He said, “Why, I hear it all at practice from everyone else anyway”. I asked him if it bothered him and he said. “Why?” I said, What do you mean why?’ He said, “Is it going to make me a better coach, probably not. So why do it?” I asked him have you ever had a parent from hell, “He laugh so hard he dropped the phone…”Next question”. we both laughed.
