re: Difference in this years team vs 2009 - Penrod on 6/28/17 at 7:34 am
[quote]Look at the 1-4 batters in each lineup. It's not even comparable. [/quote] I think 2009 was easily a better team, but this is a false comparison. The teams were tooled differently to compete in different eras with different rules. It's hard to say Cole would beat out a future MLB gold ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]As it was, it wasn't until O'Sullivan pulled Dyson that we had any success at the plate. At that point, we still had enough innings to actually do something. The only way to work the count is to take the first pitch. If we had, we may have had some success and found some holes, or Dyson might...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Ohio State, UM, and LSU lead recruiting, BAMA has no presence -why? - Penrod on 6/27/17 at 1:50 pm
Because Saban is filling his class judiciously with the top players he can find at every position. I'm sure Orgeron is getting good guys, but Bama will close with a class that is rated way higher than LSU's....
