i totally agree with the team verbage. in no way am i not impressed with the eastside, i love guys from over there, strong players and year after year strong teams. mattair, arnold, kittredge, every year there are studs and teams. but i never get a chance to see them, only when the spokane dodgers come over the mountains in the summer time. i am just talking about what i can see and hear from various sources. with the huge losses of scott, kiilsgaard, christian etc auburn has realized that no longer will big names fuel them far into the postseason, this has been addressed and auburn is already extremely team oriented. with off-season workouts open to any auburn high players i am told. season after season it is always a battle and washington high school baseball is continuing to get better and on the radar.

Well every day I see local talent at the batting cages. Richland, Kennewick, Kamiakin, and Hanford high Ball players working hard for two or three hours. Kennewick and Kamiakin especially. You can tell these boys want succes by the way they work hard for it. They know their coaches can't hold their hands threw the off season, so, they take it upon themselves to get prepared. The only Southridge kid I see working right now is a junior pitcher. All I can say about him is, his fastball has more pop to it, and the off speed is getting nastier than ever. As for the rest of Southridge, ok junior class with a couple studs in the middle infield, but thats it no one else is too impressive. So look for Kennewick at the 1 spot Kamiakin at 2 for 3A. 4A richland on top all the way.
