It’s high noon...

Yor Anei is getting some hype:

Fran Fraschilla is giving some major recognition to Yor Anei this offseason. He tweeted yesterday that Anei could be set to take a big step this season.

Former Oklahoma State basketball player Doug Gottlieb echoed his thoughts. Adding he sees them as an NBA player in a year or two.

That’s some major love.

Colin Simpson names Player of the Week:

Colin Simpson continues to tear up the minors. He earned the Player of the Week for this past week after putting up 10 home runs, 25 RBI, 14 walks, 33 strikeouts, and two stolen bases.

New hype video alert:

Orange Power Studios just released a new hype video and if doesn’t get you pumped I don’t know what will.

James Washington is ready to take a step forward:

Former Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington is ready to take the next in his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“I never really felt like I had to relearn football, but just learn the way they played here and everything,” Washington said.

He also dropped the crutch of feeling the need to leap for every catch when sometimes just finishing his route and running through the ball was enough, a habit that drew a gentle rebuke from Roethlisberger last November after Washington unwisely laid out for a deep ball against Denver. The ball smacked off Washington’s hands and fell away. If he stays on his feet, maybe he hauls it in and trots into the end zone. {The Oklahoman}
