If Nola and Jones don't have good enough seasons to hit in the top 5 of our lineup, we're in trouble. Those two have to produce runs this year.

I went early to the scrimmage hoping to watch BP and infield, but they were rolling out the tarps. They had a scrimmage, but apparently, they moved it up due to the rain. If they change the scrimmage time tomorrow, would you please let us know in a blog?

THIRD BASE

Tyler Hanover Sr.*
Evan Powell Fr.

Not your prototypical 3rd baseman in any fashion you look at it. Tyler has always hit over 300. while at LSU, but there has been concern for his lack of extra base hits and hits with runners in scoring position as of recent. If all goes according to plan Tyler will start the season leading off for LSU at the top of the order. Hanover's power remains gap to gap where he continues to have limited long ball capabilities with the new bats. As long as Tyler's over at 3rd base LSU's infield will be solid...Hanover can play the position on a constant basis. In comparison to shortstop, Hanover has basically locked down third given that he doesn't have any struggles at the dish. Along with Nola, Tyler is hoping a revitalized team chemistry will bring the Tigers back to Omaha where they can close out their respective careers in a glorious fashion. Evan Powell, another freshman with a ton of potential, is being groomed at the position where he may most likely take over next season.

Adam, who do you think will be the first guy off the bench in left handed pinch hitting situations?

Most likely Dozar, Didier would be the next one off, followed by Fields.

I was expecting his arm to be in the elite rang.

I agree with this for sure.

Adam, were you at the scrimmage today? I just got back. It was cold as hell and I underdressed like a dumbass. Moore was catching for the first team today. Not sure what, if anything, we can take from that.

Anything else stand out Kim Jong Ir? Who was on the mound today, and has anyone seen Glenn throw yet?

He's basically working out at both positions as well as Katz working at 1B and RF. I don't think Moore will put Ross out of a position at C.

McCune pitched. Only two hits against him. Dominated.

I agree and that is not what I was thinking. But I did not think that Moore was even in the mix at catcher anymore. Interesting.

OUTFIELD

Raph Rhymes Jr. *
JaCoby Jones So. *
Mason Katz Jr. *
Arby Fields Jr.
Alex Edward Jr.

LSU's outfield is by no means deep but it is talented. All three starters return from last season with most notable JaCoby Jones moving from the infield to center in replace of Mikie Mahtook. Mahtook will surely be missed, but the athletic play of Jones will ease the pain a great deal. If the season were to start today Rhymes wouldn't be able to make certain throws from left field, his arm just isn't 100%, but the coaches are doing everything they can to get him comfortable out there. For now I'm leaving Raph in LF; however don't be suprised to see him in at DH to begin the season. Jones in my opinion will make as smooth a transition from 2B to CF as anyone in the league he's got a great deal of potential in that frame and behind Gausman LSU's best pro prospect. JaCoby's athletic enough to play anywhere and it will show in the coming weeks. Katz a returning starter in RF will have that spot locked down if he remains out there. What you see is what you get with Mason, his bat is his centerpiece. Out of the group Katz comes in with slighty better power than the rest, Jones has the better glove. I still see Rhymes hitting over 330.-340. this year; he was recruited to LSU because of his explosive hitting and all signs point to another fantastic year at the plate. Arby Fields the football transfer from Northwestern (2010) will backup in center as well as left and will be the first one out there in the need of a replacement. Edward a returning starter for a part of his career will also split time in the outfield as well as possible DH.

Good synopsis of the OF, Adam!

I just want to point out that Fields technically transferred from a California JC where he played last season. He was at NW two seasons ago where he played both football and baseball.

What about Slaid? I thought Mainieri said they were going to have him out in the OF.
