re: Scrimmage Notes from Today - LSU GrandDad
[quote]As always stats and scrimmages are smoke and mirrors. With the road guantlet this fall 9-3 at best. Let the down votes commence. [/quote] you are correct in that practice is just.....practice. BUT, you're being an a-hole...

re: Should game officials be required to face the media after big games? - LSU GrandDad
it would quickly deteriate and no meaningful dialog would be accomplished. then, refs would probably organize and go on strike at the worst possible time. in short, nothing good would come out of this; it's a terrible, terrible idea. sad...

re: Is Wades philosophy kind of like money ball in baseball? - LSU GrandDad
money ball is about no bunting, sacrifice flys or moving the runner over. it's about not taking and paying for high draft picks and shopping for bargains and for taking college players over high school players. it's also about getting rid of the best players when their "servitude time" is over (mini...

re: Alex Lange - LSU GrandDad
[quote] I keep reading that he needs to develop a 3rd pitch. Just asking... he's been at LSU 3 years... why hasn't that already happened... develop a 3rd pitch, that is. [/quote] he has been working on his change up. he doesn't seem to trust it. Lange is struggling with what the first poster sa...

re: My take on Alex Lange - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Teams attack his fastball early in the count. When they look fast and he misses spots, he pays for it. [/quote] that's true about almost all pitchers. the cure is to not send it down the middle and for the fastball to have some movement. the other cure is to throw the curveball for a str...

re: My take on Alex Lange - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Lets shorten that up, hard, flat fastball that goes right over the middle of the plate, not a problem for decent hitters. [/quote] :lol: I like your brevity. I think it's more complicated than that. to "cure" a flat fastball all one needs to do is to apply more finger pressure on th...

My take on Alex Lange - LSU GrandDad
the man can pitch and LSU needs him to be consistently effective to reach it's goal of Omaha. the tendency of many is to "discard" him and push him down the rotation and use other guys. that's understandable based on some of his results but, imo, it's best for the team to let he and Dunn work it out...

[quote]Notice how you don't reply to facts that other posters have stated. Instead you reply to the Astros comment which literally has nothing to do with LSU baseball.

re: Message to the baseball posters - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Because you're an awful poster. Can't express how much we miss you in the Daily Astro Threads. [/quote] I can see that you don't like people that aren't astro fans. my first astro game was in 1962 when they were the colt 45's. I have witnessed more astro seasons than you have lived (pro...

Message to the baseball posters - LSU GrandDad
I watch almost every inning of every game and plan my schedule to be able to do so. I have opinions on the team and spent over 12 years playing the game and 6 years coaching. when I make a post giving an honest opinion of what I see (if it's critical) I get lambasted and get assailed with names and ...

re: Pap's offense is offensive. Defense Defensless. No legitimate excuse to keep running - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Pap needs some consistency, but he also needs an arm. We basically give second to anyone without a prosthesis.[/quote] I disagree and think his arm is pretty darn good. the problem with many steals is that they are stolen on the pitcher, not the catcher. if the runner gets a good jump the...

[quote]when someone is hounding you, it does not take long to get enough of it and then it becomes a negative situation.[/quote] that's correct and that's why a good manager turns the "hounding" into "positive reinforcement" when the student (trainee, employee, player, etc) begins to improve. ...

re: this team has lost 4 out of the 5 games against top competition - LSU GrandDad
[quote]While I agree there are some legitimate concerns with the bullpen[/quote] yes, but I actually see some things with the pen that encourage me. frankly, i'm more concerned with our offense and that is not just based on last nights game. sure, we have some with very good BA's but they have fe...

re: this team has lost 4 out of the 5 games against top competition - LSU GrandDad
[quote]Why are you including a team that will finish 5th in a max two-bid league as "Top Competition"?[/quote] because one of the excuses I heard last night was that UNO was a tournament team. you say they'll finish 5th but they kicked our arse twice and what I've seen would do it if we played aga...

this team has lost 4 out of the 5 games against top competition - LSU GrandDad
that includes UNO, TCU and Texas Tech. anyone that gets concerned about the team losing gets bashed and is accused of "melting". facts are facts. I don't like losing to McNeese either. last nights game was pathetic; 4 errors and our top 4 hitters got only 2 hits in 15 innings. we scored 3 ru...
