re: Beau Jordan Sticking it to the Tiger Rant - Scoob
[quote]quote: Yes, Beau hit that dinger out of spite. No going to lie, when he hit it I immediately thought about the shite he gets on here.[/quote]I'm happy for him. 100% positive he didn't do it out of spite :lol:, [b]BUT-[b][i]he knows[/i][/b][/b]. He has to, he's no dummy. On a...

re: CWS Viewership at 6-Year High - Scoob
[quote]Up 95%??? That seems insane. [/quote]I dunno, I doubt people watch it unless they're fans of a team, or maybe if you're a scout. I might have watched a couple innings of the championship round. LSU in general brings a lot of viewers, relative to the rest of the field. The SEC is ...

re: Caleb Gilbert will start tomorrow - Scoob
[quote]Drew Rasmussen is an absolute monster 92-96 mph fast ball with some nasty off speed pitches. He was drafted 30th in 1st round by Tampa. Coming off Tommy John and threw a perfect game his freshman year. [/quote]With our bats, I prefer facing a fastball pitcher. It's the offspeed junk that wo...

re: LSU will not face Faedo... - Scoob
[quote]A miracle, yes because of the disparity in available pitching. But I still expect it. [/quote]Truth is, we don't know how great that disparity will be. Oregon State didn't play a lot of midweek games, a couple of them were cancelled. They came into the tourney without their #1 guy, after...

re: What a stat! (Baseball) - Scoob
[quote]agreed, kramer has been pathetic, has to get on base damnit [/quote]I'm not a huge KR fan, but the kid has been getting good contact the past couple games, it's just not falling. That's baseball, and I could see him having a big game at the plate tomorrow. Deichmann, on the other hand, ha...

re: Pressure is now on them - Scoob
[quote]All season, we've heard about the Big 4 for LSU foregoing the pros to come back for 1 more season. What did they come back for? It wasn't to be happy about almost winning a title. They came back for 1 reason and 1 reason only, and it's the same thing OSU is playing for. [/quote]You sound...

re: Pressure is now on them - Scoob
I definitely think OSU is feeling more pressure than we are. They haven't faced elimination before; we were facing it, for practical purposes, starting with the Alabama series. Going into today, they had 2 games to win one, against a team they had flat-out embarrassed earlier. They expected to ...

re: Who most likely could give us some quality innings between Gilbert and Hess? - Scoob
[quote]Newman should be motivated to redeem himself after his last outing. I'm thinking he might pitch well tomorrow. [/quote]Exactly; Hunter Newman is like a microcosm of LSU in that game. Out of sorts and pounded, and probably disregarded by the Beavers afterwards. That whole game was out of whac...

re: Caleb Gilbert will start tomorrow - Scoob
For practical purposes, how do you map out the pitching for LSU? Obviously, not the same as game 2, as that became a throwaway. Gilbert- think he's gotta get into the 5th, anything beyond that would be awesome. Hunter Newman, like it or not, probably being figured for 2 innings, maybe 3- fig...

re: Try a radical change for tomorrow's game in CWS - Scoob
we won today, I wouldn't change a thing. Our "holes" in the lineup: Kramer- not getting hits, but is making a lot of contact. He's due for a big game Deichmann- yes, he's greatly cooled down during postseason. Don't see how you can move him, and like Kramer, he's due Beau- he's actually been d...

re: Gator fans - who you pulling for tomorrow? - Scoob
[quote]Agreed, if I were a fan of LSU I would root for UF to lose tonight to help spread the pitching thinner. [/quote]the drawback to that, of course, is if Oregon State wins tomorrow. I think a rested Florida takes them, I don't think TCU or bullpen Florida does....

re: Gilbert and Hess will pitch tomorrow game - Scoob
I know it's a given, but is there any OFFICIAL word that Walker is done? In theory, he only went a couple innings Monday, and you're looking at 4 days rest and pitching again on day 5. I wouldn't do it, but I don't know what's wrong with him. ...

re: House Money - Scoob
Tigers should be relaxed. I don't think OSU has anybody better to throw tomorrow than they did today, and we made good contact. Kramer might not be getting hits, but he's putting the bats on the ball, and that's a good thing. Beau, everybody's favorite punching bag, is dropping bunts when you need t...

re: Gator fans - who you pulling for tomorrow? - Scoob
[quote]That depends on whether there are any weather patterns in the Gulf that LSU can exploit [/quote] :lol: Where's TS Cindy right now, did it move north enough? If nothing else, I think today's win has really helped Florida out mentally. Oregon State has an awesome record and will definitely ...

re: Freshmen carrying this team!!! - Scoob
[quote]No one can discount what the other players have done. But you have to give kudos to the freshman for performing as they have.[/quote]Future looks damn bright. This ballpark is supposed to be tough to homer in, and Watson, Smith and Slaughter all did it. Watson in particular becoming a man at ...

re: Without being a "homer", what chance do you give us to win today? - Scoob
Tossup today. [b]If Lange is on his A game, I think we hold them down.[/b] If we break through with the bats early I think we win a game similar to the 2nd Florida State game. If the game is tight late and Lange is dealing, I think we break through in the later innings, similar to the 1st Mi...
