Diamond Thoughts: The memories, the aftermath & the future
7 yr ago by Gabe Bock
It was one of the most memorable teams in Texas A&M's long baseball history, and thus the fall was one of the program's most painful. A great deal of pitching returns; a great deal of hitting does not. How should we reflect on the 2016 season and what should we expect in '17?

Diamond Thoughts: A national seed, a path laid out for Texas A&M
7 yr ago by Gabe Bock
It's true, the No. 4 national seed seemed to be a bit of a slight for a team that defeated four top-10 opponents en route to an SEC Tournament title. Yet, a closer look at Texas A&M's draw should enthrall Aggies everywhere. All that's left to do is go win it.

7 yr ago by Gabe Bock
Unlike last season, there will be no consternation about Texas A&M's national seed chances. As the Aggies get set for the SEC Tournament, the only question will be just how high a spot they can snag — as well as what to do about an otherwise strong contender's one missing link.

Once again deftly handling the grind of the elite SEC slate, No. 2 Texas A&M hit the road and took a series from No. 9 USC to position itself as a near-lock for a national seed. However, the four games remaining will determine the outcome of the Aggies' season.

Diamond Thoughts: Nine games, four teams, two national seeds
7 yr ago by Gabe Bock
It seems a foregone conclusion at this point that the SEC will land three top-eight national seeds — and, perhaps, a fourth. Three series remain for No. 2 Texas A&M, which can all but lock it up beginning this weekend. Are the Aggies peaking at the right time?

7 yr ago by Ryan Brauninger
Is any lineup in college baseball as terrifying as Texas A&M's at the moment? The Aggies rose to No. 3 in all the relevant polls after a dominant sweep of Mississippi State in Starkville, but the how and the why carry implications for every weekend that follows.

The Aggies merely needed a strong rebound during the weekend's series against Georgia. Instead, they made a statement. With a rotation that seems righted and a lineup that is as deep as any 1-through-9, Texas A&M is ready to head to No. 2 Mississippi State.

8 yr ago by Gabe Bock
The weekend's visit from LSU gave Texas A&M the chance to show the nation the truth: the pitching is back on track, the lineup is dangerous and the Aggies deserve the title of baseball's best team. Can they retain it in visits to No. 23 Houston and No. 2 Florida?

Diamond Thoughts: Balance, business and Texas A&M's 3-0 start
8 yr ago by Gabe Bock
Easily and impressively, No. 4 Texas A&M opened the season with a sweep. Yes, it was Hofstra. Nonetheless, that the Aggies took care of business was less impressive than the fact that it was done with a balanced effort at the plate and the emergence of a stellar freshman on the mound.

Diamond Thoughts: A snub of historical proportions
8 yr ago by Gabe Bock
By every conceivable metric, Texas A&M's resume was more deserving of a national seed than TCU's; in fact, Monday's oversight was a first. In lieu of making sense of it, the Aggies must look to their regional field with a newfound chip on their shoulder.
