Viewing guide to Giants draftees in the College World Series

Ronald Martinez

There are two of them. So buckle up?

You don't care about the College World Series. You want to care about the College World Series. You made a list of things you want to do, and the College World Series is on it, right behind eating more kale. But you don't care about the College World Series.

I care! And one of the things that helped me care was figuring out which teams had some of the Giants' recent draftees. The Series kicks off at noon Pacific, and here are the teams with the potential Giants prospects.

Mississippi State vs. Oregon State - noon, Saturday, ESPN2
There are no Giants draftees on these teams. We do not care about these teams. Though if you want to stretch it, you can pretend it's Will Clark vs. Andrew Susac.

Indiana vs. Louisville - 5 p.m., Saturday, ESPN
There are no Giants draftees on these teams. We do not care about these teams. Though if you want to stretch it, you can pretend it's Jake Dunning vs. Adam Duvall.

North Carolina vs. North Carolina State - noon, Sunday, ESPN2
There are no Giants draftees on these teams. We do not care about these teams. This is kind of getting ridiculous. Though if you want to stretch it, you can pretend it's ... Brion Treadway? ... vs. Eric Surkamp.

UCLA vs. LSU - 5 p.m., Sunday, ESPN2
There are Giants draftees on these teams! We care!

Ty Ross is LSU's catcher, and he's a glove-first prospect. He kind of hit .213 with an aluminum bat this year. But you can tune in and watch those smooth, smooth hands.

Nick Vander Tuig is a starting pitcher for UCLA, and he's one of the more interesting pitchers the Giants drafted this year. His profile makes him seem like a Joe Blanton-type -- location and command of different pitches is more his thing rather than velocity.

He's not pitching on Sunday.

So tune into the College World Series to watch a 12th-round catcher frame pitches and throw down to second base.

Oh, and that game is opposite the Giants game against the Braves on Sunday night.

...

This seemed like a much better idea when I started it. But on Tuesday, Vander Tuig should pitch! We don't know exactly when until UCLA wins or loses, but it'll be on Tuesday.

This has been a College World Series preview as it relates to the Giants. You still don't care about the College World Series. I've failed, everybody. :(
