Tigers lose Von Rosenberg
I know it's football season, but that was a big blow LSU took today with Zack Von Rosenberg signing with the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Von Rosenberg is getting a $1.2 million signing bonus and I guess it's hard to say "no'' to that kind of money. But I would be leery of a franchise that has something like 16 consecutive losing seasons working.
Still, you can't blame the kid for taking the money. He would have been a heckuva pitcher in the SEC.
On a related note, LSU coach Paul Mainieri should quit griping about the MLB deadline for players to sign. Heck, it's better than it used to be and everybody is going through the same thing. It makes Mainieri look like a whiner when he's been nothing but class in every other area.
