Hope he does great! And if he does, maybe he will play when the O's come to Houston - gotta think that would be a reasonable chance for him to succeed for sure... I can see a purple and gold section chanting "L-S-U, L-S-U" at Minute Maid !...

Feeling a little disappointed at the errors when Glenn pitched such a good game, but given the conditions and all, it's surprising there weren't more errors all around. A&M made some outstanding defensive plays, and we seemed impatient at the plate. But not worried or anything - just always hate t...

Pouring rain, lots of lightning/thunder in west Houston right now - fingers crossed it gets better in College Station 'cause we're driving up later today - if we have gen admission seats, are we gonna be on that grassy part? Want to know if I need to bring a canoe.

| Tiger Rant|| re: When and Why did you become an LSU Tiger? - cafeaulait19 on 4/23/13 at 1:16 pm|
My mom and dad met on a blind date to an LSU football game in 1958 - her cousin asked if she wanted to go with this guy who was kinda quiet, and she said she didn't care if he opened his mouth at all as long as he had football tickets! So it's genetic.
They moved to BR and I grew up there, Pisto...

This for sure - with key series, tournaments, etc coming up, we need every able-bodied pitcher we can get! Hope he comes back in top form!

Does he have a map? It's not that much closer than BR, at least from Indiana.... Maybe the whole family is moving.

| Tiger Rant|| re: Mainieri: Stevenson in CF is "fairly permanent" - cafeaulait19 on 3/29/13 at 8:32 am|
Stevenson is the best outfielder of all 4 in discussion. Not sure what you mean about him running around for the ball.
As just a casual fan with zero baseball skill, it seems like he takes funny angles that have me holding my breath to see if he gets there -and he does get there! But I haven't ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Mainieri: Stevenson in CF is "fairly permanent" - cafeaulait19 on 3/28/13 at 4:10 pm|
Guess I'm not seeing a big trade off in Stevenson for Sciambra - in more than twice as many at-bats, sciambra has a better avg and higher obp, and seems to usually make the pitcher really work. Stevenson looks really fast in center, but it also seems like its because he's running all over the place...

Thanks for the post - not making the trip myself but I heard a good many people talking about going at the game last weekend. You should come down to BR next year if we play y'all - can pretty much guarantee it won't be cancelled for snow! :geauxtigers:...

Surely she'd at least make the trip - there are only 8 of them, right? I mean it's not like she's taking someone else's place even if she's on the bench. But no, I don't know. Hope so....

[quote]Sciambra struggled the first few weeks of last season. He had just started hitting the ball consistently when he was injured. That made his absence feel more acute at the time.[/quote]
That's what I recall - seems like he had turned the corner batting when he got hurt. His fielding was al...

| Tiger Rant|| re: LSU vs TCU Matchup Stats - cafeaulait19 on 3/25/13 at 10:35 am|
I think I'd give the LB advantage to LSU, based on a) we have a couple that didn't play last year (Tahj Jones, Welter) that should add experience, and b) because I'm ascribing to the view that the biggest improvement is from fresh to soph years, so our good freshmen should be outstanding soph s.
