I wish him luck in pursuing his dreams, but UFA's in baseball are usually signed to provide "meat" to provide competition for players seen as having a chance to make it to "the show."  

I would have hoped a guy who went to Pioneer and then Michigan would be able to see through this kind of stuff, and wouldn't get familial pressure.  If he was good enough, one more year of college wouldn't have hurt him.  I hope he got a bonus large enough to pay for enough school to graduate, and it's in a fund.  Usually, though, that doesn't happen.

Or rather, "came to a mutual decision to seek other opportunities."  I can see where he would consider doing the same. Either way it's a crapshoot, so why not try something completely different.

I know he redshirted, so he may well be done with school.  If not, although I know absolutely nothing about the Brosnahan family situation other than that they live near a couple of my colleagues, I am guessing another semester of tuition wouldn't break the bank.  It's not as if baseball players get full scholarships anyway.

Kind of too bad because he was the pitcher my son decided was "his guy" last season.
