open thread: watch Giants 6th round pick Nick Vander Tuig lead his team to the College World Series title on ESPN

Ok, I admit that is a bit of a stretch to find a Giants angle on this, and I know not many of you are as interested in this as I am, but...Nick Vander Tuig is a the only one of the Giants top 11 picks that hasn't signed yet, and it's for a very good reason. He is a Northern California kid, from Oakdale and has been a great big game pitcher at UCLA.

Strangely enough, UCLA has never won an NCAA baseball championship, in fact prior to 2010, they had only been to the College World Series once. I was always very annoyed by UCLA's inability to have a great baseball program even though they had every ingredient possible to do so, but that all changed with the hiring of John Savage in 2005 and could culminate in a big way tonight.

Go Vander Tuig and go Bruins!
