  • Death of Australian player weighs heavy on team

That's not necessarily surprising. The SEC has a long history of successful pitchers who go on to Major League Baseball prominence, including current stars like David Price, Lance Lynn, Cliff Lee, Tim Hudson and Mike Minor. But the difference this season is depth. The league had a 2.72 ERA at the halfway point this season, down from 3.14 at the same time a y
