Bain and Beck were solid
Biggest question mark by far was going to be the pen. Both of them came up huge tonight. Hopefully we see 2-3 pitchers step up like this in relief this weekend.

Gilbert is going to be who he is all season. He has the ability to have a solid start, but also has the ability to get crushed. Not a typical Friday night starter at LSU. More of a Sunday guy.

Hitting will have to carry the load early on, while the pitching staff settles in. Cant wait to see Hess tomorrow night though.

Going to the game tomorrow just to watch that maniac pitch. He is scary looking on the mound.

Hess as a starter is going to be a work in progress. Bain and Beck were awesome, and I hope they aren’t done in this series.

Who on the team has the consistency and the stuff to be the Friday starter other than Hess and Gilbert?

Very interested to see 5+ with Hess at the mound. He is a phenomenal closer with 2-3 innings, but I am very interested to see what he has done in the off-season to become more well-rounded.

Bain looks like he has a certain fire in him when he gets going that was really fun to watch. Haven’t seen that from him before. I like it

Sorry for the downvote! My huge fingers are to big for this phone. I agree with you 100 percent.
Gilbert probably just had jitters as he become the new Friday night starter. I think he settles down though and gets better as season goes along.

You’re a miserable moron. Every time you post it’s negative bitching.

Gilbert has been a stud his entire careee and you’ve deduced he can’t be a starter after one bad outing in the first game.

Shmuck

Gilbert will be ok, he pitches to contact. What got him in trouble was the errors, play of catcher- with pass balls, hitting some batters, and fielding( not covering first). Clean up some things any they only score a couple runs on him...First game, so everyone was pressing and spinning out, not ready to pull him yet, but everything will be in flux for a while....

I wasn't talking about his skill (although he's good.) I'm more so talking about how he is physically terrifying on the mound. I would be intimidated with that dude and his angry arse face throwing heaters at me.

I wasn't saying Gilbert shouldn't have started on this Friday night. Just saying he is not the typical LSU Friday night guy we are used to seeing.

Gilbert hits 95 consistently. The fact that he was 91 in the first inning on a warm night is more concerning than his stats tonight.

Not to me. He hasn't been 95 at any point during the fall or spring. At least I haven't seen those speeds posted. And it was warm for a few of those days.

That’s what happens when a pitcher is pacing himself rather than letting it fly for an inning or two. I’d bet your going to see Hess sit in the low 90s occasionally seeing 95-96 when he needs it tomorrow when last year he was consistently mid-high 90s.

I'd be surprised if he wasn't. What Bbap is referring to is Gilbert hitting 95 against Oregon st as a starter last year. I think Gilbert will gain a couple mph throughout the year. Let it get in the 90s in may and I think he'll be touching 94

Certainly a big question mark, but I think the bigger question is starting pitching. Caleb Gilbert looked good at the end of the season, but it was a very brief period. Hess did not look good as a starter, and his stuff doesn’t project well as a starter. Todd P has not performed in a way that makes us confidant.

All of our starters are big question marks. While it is the same with relief itchers, I’m sure that, with so many of them, CPM and Dunn will find a few reliable ones.

How hard was Beck tossing? Seems like he was an 85 guy last year. Wondered if he has picked up velocity.

Bain was nailing the strike zone which is a huge improvement from last year and Becks breaking ball was nasty, we definitely need these two to keep it up
