The word you’re looking for is losing, not loosing.

Can you point to an example of this happening during Johnson’s tenure at LSU?

I’m trying to figure out why there’s a thread about Christian Little after Micah Bucknam gave up 4 runs without recording an out



Do you really have to ask?


The same reason cam Johnson is the next Christian little per this board

In the postseason last year. He knew who to put in relief when the games mattered more.

Gotcha, my bad, I misinterpreted the point you were trying to make.

It’s not an “experiment.” I don’t know why people on here insist on calling guys simply playing an “experiment.” He came in during a blowout out of the bullpen. He’s not a starter nor has he been one of our first out of the bullpen arms and hasn’t been since early last season.

He did his job in the CWS by going the distance in that blowout He preserved arms and might have been the reason they won it all


This can’t be overstated

That’s great and all but he’s been terrible in basically every other outing in his entire career

You guys give zero slack it is absolutely insane. Players can develop, if you give them a chance. It’s not time to give up on the kid just yet.

I have a feeling I know what kind of basketball fan you are too.

Is that the "New and Improved" version of the traditional and nauseating "We'll be Fine" BS that all you cute little Pumper Boys spew out on the regular?

There are two separate and distinct tracs on the Rant.

You've got the cute little "Mediocrity Accepting Pumper Boys" and the overly negative "Whine, Bitch, Moan and Complain" group.

Both are equally ........

Your ego thinks it can handle creating a starting lineup for an SEC baseball team, but your brain says that you don’t know the difference between lose and loose

That’s quite the conundrum. fricking moron.

Experiment?? Did you even watch the game? He wasn’t pinpoint today and the velo down a little after pitching yesterday. He pitched to 2 batters and inherited a runner and he gave up a hit to the right side. The next was fly ball to RF that should’ve been caught. He has pitched fine outside of getting deep in counts and pitching from behind.

Skip always lauded a pitcher who could immediately get ahead in the count.

Instead of “we’ll be fine” I think a better way to put is “there’s time for the team to keep improving”. And that includes Little. He just turned 21. Coaches could have told him to hit the portal this summer but they didn’t. He’s not hurting the team by pitching in a blowout.

Littles not an experiment. He is what he is and that's fine. He can eat innings and get some outs. He won't develop into an ace, but he's a great teammate. He's one of the better team guys on the squad.

I'm not gonna shite talk a dude that's been a hype man for the team and come up in some big spots. Hasn't killed it 100% of the time but he's done his job, hasn't bitched, and by all accounts has been a team player since he's been here.

He's consistently the first guy to congratulate his teammates on a big play or a big inning. We've heard literally nothing negative about him. There's value in that.

He, nor the coaches, nor the catcher, nor the batters, nor the umpires have any fricking clue where the ball is going when it leaves his hand.

It shouldn’t get that far. He needs to be as far down the depth chart as possible.


Says you. I’ll trust the CWS champion coach though.
