Won't be tailgating much for Friday, hopefully I can get out there for Saturday and do the double dip with basketball after baseball.

@Rome_TDR: #LSU coach Paul Mainieri is scheduled to meet with the media at noon & has said he'll name the third starter and possibly a closer.


Wonder if this will be on 104.5?

Tiger Rag ?@Tiger_Rag
Bonvillain is 2nd option of Cotton can't start Sunday

Tiger Rag ?@Tiger_Rag
If Cotton is ready for Sunday, expect McCune to handle any possible save situation Saturday. More to come

Tiger Rag ?@Tiger_Rag
Mainieri names Sciambra in CF (leadoff) and Laird in RF (2-hole) opening night. DH likely Edward or Moore depending on hand of opp. pitcher

So I take it that Cotton will be the Sunday starter IF he isn't thrown too much Friday or Saturday?

I guess that's more of the Bradford/Coleman role we were talking about... I just really like Cotton in the long relief role much better than I do in the Sunday starter role.

Bonvillain as the 2nd Sunday starter option pleases me. I think he can be successful there.

McCune as the closer scares me.

Tiger Rag ?@Tiger_Rag
Mainieri puts Cotton in a hybrid role. He may pitch in relief Friday then may start on Sunday if he's fresh enough

It just confused me as well. I just tried to logically think it through as:

1) Cotton is the primary guy out of the pen each weekend.
2) If he is thrown too hard Friday and Saturday, he will not start Sunday and Bonvillain will get the Start.
3) If he is NOT thrown hard on Friday and Saturday, Cotton will get the start.

Is this what anyone else is getting?

Sounds like pitching by committee on Sunday.

McCune closing bothers me.

Cotton starting on Sunday kind of bothers me a little as well.

I guess he is going to treat Cotton like Astin @ Arky. Astin with middle relief on Friday and starting Sunday.

That's how I look at it...

Doesn't sound like Cotton will even throw on Saturdays.

This solidies to me that CPM still has no idea who is going to pitch on Sundays.

Yea, rabbit put it best. Pitching by committee on Sunday. Sounds like he plans on relying on McCune this season. Hopefully he rounds back into form.

Obviously no one has stepped up into the 3rd starters role enough for Mainieri's liking. Bullpen roles are a crapshoot at this point in the season.
