Dodgers sign Gould

The Dodgers, according to the L.A. Times, signed Maize pitcher Garrett Gould. This played out exactly as almost everyone predicted. The Dodgers took him in the second round, fully intending to sign him away from Wichita State. They did just that, even a few days before the Aug. 17 deadline.

The Shockers would love to have him. But they were fully prepared to lose him. Losing two top recruits - Jon Gilmore and Pete Kozma - was devastating in 2007. Losing Dusty Coleman and Logan Watkins unexpectedly last summer was crippling. This is different. It hurts, but the WSU coaches never got too attached to the notion of using Gould’s talents.
