re: A Look Ahead: 2014 LSU Baseball Lineup w/ Rotations - ThomasTiger
[quote]This kid has taken $hit from a lot of you this season. You'd think he was batting .195 with a .295 OBP (oh wait, that's Stevenson) instead of his .265 and .407 OBP. May I remind you that he has bounced back from near paralyzingly injury last year, causing him to miss part of the last season a...

re: Theories on Sciambra? - ThomasTiger
Deep fly to center. A little tougher than routine but not much. Drifted back, got turned around, stumbled and never came close to getting a glove on it. If I recall the runner didn't score so it ultimately was a nonissue. ...

re: Theories on Sciambra? - ThomasTiger
[quote]Mainieri is trying to figure out the proper balance between defense/hitting overall. Stevenson is the worst hitter but the best outfielder. Sciambra is an average hitter and average outfielder. Foster is a good hitter but probably the worst outfielder (At least he has an arm). McMullen i...

re: Laird at bats out weighing his fielding - ThomasTiger
[quote]Can someone post the number of at bats. I still feel like Stevenson has had far less at bats. And I have been on sciambra train for little while now. He's a solid player. But I feel like solid player is his ceiling which there's nothing wrong with that. [/quote] Laird -191 ABs Sciambra- 8...

re: Laird at bats out weighing his fielding - ThomasTiger
Laird .190 SEC .267 Overall .341 OBP Stevenson .100 SEC .176 Overall .273 OBP Sciambra .250 SEC .261 Overall .411 OBP So why is Sciambra out of the discussion? Seems to me he's by far the most consistent of the three. A little bit of defense does not justify .150 points in batting ...

re: Baseball: Grambling 0 vs #2 LSU 4 | Final - Tigers win! | Astro's summary in OP - ThomasTiger
So what's the deal with Stevenson starting? He has the lowest batting average on the entire team (.189 now). Is his defense vs. Sciambra's worth more than the 85 points in batting average between the two (.274 vs. .189). On base percentage is even more disparate (.442 vs. .295). Laird in center/...

[quote]I went to 6 scrimmages this spring and i agree. None of the freshmen seemed ready to be a starter against D1 competition, IMO.[/quote] D1 is typically a big adjustment from HS.

re: Bonvillan as the Sunday Starter - ThomasTiger
After watching several scrimmages this Fall and Spring, I don't see any freshmen pitchers helping this team as a weekend starter this year. I believe spot relief is the best you're gonna get out of this class. None of them looked anywhere near being able to compete in the SEC. Not even close. Jo...

So much potential in Bregman too. He's the real deal. Laird will get better as the season goes on. Pretty formidable top of the order. ...

[quote]4-4, 0-2 with 2 walks, 1-2 with 2 walks 5-8 with 4 walks 0.692 OBP[/quote] My math says 9-12 is a .750 OBP. Can't keep up that pace (obviously) but his ability to take pitches, work the count and either put it in play or walk makes him a perfect lead off hitter. Looking back at last y...

re: Baseball stats from scimmages this weekend - ThomasTiger
Sciambra doubled off Nola in the 1st and then Rhymes doubled him in. Nola settled in after that. The hitting seems ahead of the pitching at this point of the Spring. ...
