Mainieri moves Hellmers back to pitching; will give Thompson chance for everyday 3B
LINK

quote:

LSU moved Will Hellmers back to pitching, Paul Mainieri said, after the errors against Air Force. Yesterday, he threw his first bullpen session in a few weeks. Mainieri said he could still be a two-way player, but "I wanted to get Will back on the mound."

Paul Mainieri on third base: "I'm going to give Jordan Thompson a chance to be the everyday third baseman." Collier Cranford's also practicing there.

In other words - get him off 3B

Because as of now we have 3 leftys that pitched alright this weekend.

I think they might give Drost a shot in left. For now at least, the bats need more work than the pitching.

Yes but if he says this then it’s “he threw the player under the bus” blah blah blah “fire marinara” blah blah blah “never going to win again” blah blah blah “Small players”.

I think I got all the talking points.

Seems like this is the trend every year until we get to the point that solid pitching depth is needed and realize the team lacks that as well.

Hellmers looked like a pitcher playing 3B and hitting. He didn't look like a 2-way player. Big difference.

That may have been the dumbest statement in rant history. CPM has many faults but changing up the lineup when things aren’t working is not one of them.

This wont be popular, but i thought his glove looked decent to good, it was his throws that were the problem. I could see him as a future 2nd basemen or 3rd basemen...at least as a reserve

Safford is now a backup cf i guess. Hadnt heard cranford mentioned in awhile. Its a constant shuffle

He looked like a deer in headlights. Hard to really pass too much judgment, but I can tell you that he didn't look decent to good at anything.

He missed a couple with his glove too. Tough plays but plays you expect a college third baseman to make. His bad throws were on the easy ones which tells me it was more mental. He made the throws on the run and didn’t have time to think about the throw pretty good.

Bregman asked for Hellmers’ number to call him after his tough game. That is awesome
