Baseball is totally "instincts" which comes from knowing your players and knowing (not guessing) what to do...Bertman was the master.
Maineri has no instincts....period!
What lost the game was four errors by Ross...the throwing error, the skip throw to second base and two passed balls that wer...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Did Gausman win tonight? - LagdonCG on 6/14/13 at 5:28 am|
He pitched very good. His fastball was great in the high 90s and his change was spot on. He had almost no breaking ball which is why he may go down to work on that slider/curve.
He has really good stuff and will certainly be on a roster in the big leagues next year. He will probably be back wh...

Buck Showalter knows what he is doing. Best manager in baseball..

Wishing him all the best......

I have followed LSU baseball for 40 years, having been on the inaugural coaches committee. I love LSU baseball and miss it until I hear that egotistical yap of Chris Guillot and that shite eating grin on his face when he screeches out...Goooo.
Couple that with the "k" lady and I am happy to stay ...

Anderson was the most dominant defensive player I ever saw play at LSU or any other school. Such a shame about his knee as he missed his entire junior year. Bevan Tomlinson and Anderson best three linebackers I ever saw in purple and gold.
Most teams had negative rushing yards. Anderson was als...

At some point, the common denominator between the dope smokers, the JJ/TM7 arrest tells me their is a systemic problem at LSU that Leslie Miles cannot control.
Something is not right here.
Why did s many players defect our program when most of them will not even be drafted? They wanted out th...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Does being named 24th best coach by sporting news bother Les? - LagdonCG on 4/26/13 at 9:38 am|
Despite a good record, he underachieved with the talent he had and should have won another NC. He lost his team in New Orleans and never got them back and the result was a mass defection last year.
It is all on Miles...period.
Now that these players have been drafted, we will begin to know mo...

TM7 is a profound punk who will be a huge bust in NFL. It will be a mirror image f his career at LSU.
Will get picked pocket some cash and then go bonkers...he cannot stand success....
| Tiger Rant|| re: Did Pete Maravich cause a lot of turnovers? - LagdonCG on 4/14/13 at 12:35 pm|
I watched every game at LSU when he played and do not remember him having that many turnovers. I remember him being triple teamed and dribbling through all of them lots of times.
His passing was amazing but his teammates knew when to expect them....

Chamblee comes across as a little smart arse who now gets to make calls on great players. Players that he could never beat giving him a sense of power over them.
His arrogance on air sitting there with his legs crossed is revolting.

This is the losers tournament and we need to concentrate on getting to the big dance. LSU seems very tired and played a bit over its head for a while but not so hot right now.
I have never like the NIT and glad we are not going. Need to set the sights on winning the SEC and going to NCAA.
