I think Cowherd was spot on this week in his assessment of the baseball establishment and of Marty in particular.
You may have been able to sell me more on Colin being prepared before I heard him last week saying that most baseball players don't go to college. He pointed out that 3% of players have a college degree. While that is true, that doesn't mean only 3% went to college. How many NBA players or NFL players have college degrees? Guys get drafted before they are eligible to graduate in all three sports. On the Reds alone, these guys went to college: Ryan Hanigan, Zack Cozart, Todd Frazier, Chris Heisey, Jack Hannahan, Ryan Ludwick, Tony Cingrani, Manny Parra, Pedro Villarreal, Curtis Partch, JJ Hoover, Sam LeCure, Sean Marshall, Justin Freeman and Logan Ondrusek.
