Todd Frazier has been on fire recently, hitting over .500 with extra base power in his last ten games. His full season numbers look much better now, although you'd still like to see slightly better strike zone judgment.
The economy will have a major impact on the class of incoming freshmen.
Rutgers University's incoming freshman class will be larger by about 100 students, with a greater portion of them from the Garden State. In-state enrollment will nudge up from 89 percent to 91 percent.
Rutgers ended up with slightly fewer applicants, mostly because of a drop in out-of-state applications. "Just like our kids are saying they can't afford to attend out-of-state, so out-of-state kids are saying they can't afford to go to school in New Jersey," McAnuff said.
However, the incoming class will be larger -- 7,600 instead of 7,500 -- because more admitted students are choosing Rutgers instead of heading elsewhere.
