[quote]Thanks for clarifying a bit. Certainly could be a factor in their bloated offensive stats.
ULL is a very good team, they took two of three from an Alabama team that leads the SEC and beat us!
However, it probably wouldn't be to much to think some of their offensive productio...

Mainieri's recent history in past Thursday games seems to suggest that Nola may not pitch Thursday, and go on his normal rest. If I had to guess, Glenn gets the start Thursday, with Nola and Poche going Fri. and Sat....

Vanderbilt is going to dominate a lot of SEC baseball teams not just LSU, so lets don't go write the season off because we lost two of three in Nashville!
The next two weeks are critical for this baseball team. Georgia is an improving club, but they are nowhere near Vanderbilt on the mound. Hopef...

With the way the offense has played this year, we will score points on anyone left on the schedule!

Moustache, that game Sunday was just that one bad game. The fact is this team still has games to play, although if they listen to your logic they aren't very good and should just cash the season in!

The more top notch pitching we can get to campus the better.
