If he’s gone to fsu (or even if he’s not), this feels like the biggest flaw of NIL. I’m all for players getting money. They should. But this is when it make sense to bring back the transfer rule of sitting a year. It might make the poaching aspect slightly less appealing. Sitting a year is restrictive and kind of a dumb rule when there’s no NIL money involved. But with the money involved, it just becomes open season on poaching players and that’s not really in the spirit of what NIL is. It’s tricky because the players should get paid. But lack of any roster continuity is really frustrating for fans (and coaches).

Or the real answer would be to go straight to an employment contract for the players by the universities. But I think we’re still a ways off from that happening.

He’s from Florida. He was one of the top recruits in Florida (and in the country, right?). Why wouldn’t he have just gone to FSU right out of high school? I don’t follow college baseball recruiting at all. But surely fsu would’ve recruited him and wanted him out of high school.

Rumor is he didn't tell coaches his plans to leave and word was leaked via teammates.

Also apparently he skipped his exit interview with the team, but that's apparently not confirmed?

Either way, -10000000 credibility -- NOT 110% committed

"Latest on Tommy White: Can confirm he has entered the transfer portal. There’s a small chance he returns to NC State but not likely. No visits set yet and I’m told this is NOT about NIL. In fact, leaving NC State likely costs him some $ in the short term.
Big potential issue here is Tommy has always insisted he can be a solid defensive player. Was actually quite good at 3B in high school, and that’s what he wants to do at the college level. NC State largely used him at DH this year. Proving he can play 3B is big for MLB future."

He was/should’ve been in line to be out starting 3B next season with Green moving over to SS. If he’s just homesick for Florida then he’s in for a rude awakening when he goes pro and gets stuck in bumfuck nowhere to play in the minors.

This is reminds me of the JJ Hickson year in Basketball. Not entirely the same. While he was a special offensive talent, in the end the team had a down year. Its a team sport and his offensive production will be missed, but I don't think this will be the downward spiral of the program.

He left out the fact that he was at 3B at one point in the season until he had his shoulder injury and that is why he was switched to DH.

One day he'll be DH for the Mariners and announcers will tell the story of Avent kicking him off the team for daring to ask to play 3B

In his commencement speech at FSU he’ll do a New Jersey accent to impersonate Elliot Avent.

Lol

At the risk of being canceled, "a whole tribe of wolves"?? Is "tribe" an okay thing to say in reference to native Americans?? I truly don't know.

"Correction: Tommy White's exit interview did happen, he met with NC State baseball coach Elliott Avent on Monday night.

The rest of the team had their interviews on Tuesday and Wednesday.

I was just able to clarify with Avent. "

I did.

On the topic of Giglio: he is no longer a journalist, he's a sports media personality. He says/writes things for clicks/views/listens now. He is not a beat reporter now and everything he says should be viewed with skepticism because of his current role.

No but you also don't have the same ethnical requirements. Dude gets paid to have listeners/engagement not to accurately report on a team.

Not saying he's not knowledgeable, just saying that things he says now should not be taken with the same regard as stuff he wrote during his time as beat reporter.

you say that as if they’re known for hot takes as opposed to what they actually do on their show, which is take the piss out of unsubstantiated hot takes

he didn’t leave his credibility at the door as soon as he took the gig

^^ I think that’s true. But I also think it’s fair to say that some things he says should probably carry more weight than things Joe Ovies says. Just because Giglio is connected and does have relationships with #sources. His role is very different now and he’s probably unlikely to get any big time #scoops as a radio host. But I’d rate his credibility above most other radio hosts.

He got injured but the primary reason he moved to DH and not fielding third is that his defense took a turn for the worst halfway through the season and he sucked at fielding. Sucked. That's part of the issue, he wants to play defense and the coaching staff wants to leave him at DH next year until he proves he's fixed his fielding woes.

Personally Giglio and pretty much all the other guys on 99.9 The Fan (especially Adam Gold) kinda irk me -- always faux angry and they don't really listen well. Not that that's crazy or rare in sports radio, but I've lived in other cities where the hosts were better. Almost makes me wanna listen to another town's sports radio, but then we won't get as much State coverage, though Giglio in particular gets a hate boner over state anyways, so eh

On fielding for the year, White had 121 chances, 94 put-outs, 19 assists, and 8 errors for a fielding percentage of .934, which isn't *awuful* but is still below almost all of the non-pitchers on the team (only ahead of Pilolli, Eisert, Marcy, and Green -- all but Green had way fewer chances than him). So, while not bad, his performance -- and injury -- definitely didn't justify playing him this year

^^ I'm not proud (or ashamed) of my view on sports talk radio. It's just how i feel. Also, my listening or not has nothing to do with my opinion on giglio's changing role in the sports & news communities.

I mean I won’t lie. I don’t think I would listen as much if I hadn’t worked with Joe G. at Technician and I rolled pretty deep with Joe O. when I was EIC at Tech and he was GM at WKNC.

More transfer portal crap ruining college sports. He didn’t even go home to Florida like everyone thought. Guess LSU paid him lots of money. Bring back the sit out a year for transfers.
